About the Author:

R.J. Ellory is the author of twelve novels, including the bestselling A Quiet Belief in Angels, which was Strand Magazine’s Thriller of the Year, shortlisted for the Barry Award, and a finalist for the SIBA Award. He is also the author of City of Lies, Candlemoth, A Quiet Vendetta, The Anniversary Man, A Simple Act of Violence, and the e-book original series Three Days in Chicagoland.

Review:

"As in the very best of thrillers, A Quiet Vendetta has the ring of truth and real research behind it all. With exquisite pace and perfect timing, R.J. Ellory has given us a piercing assessment of the nature of love, loyalty and obsessive revenge, not to mention a deep understanding of la cosa nostra." — The Guardian

"An absorbing crime novel...a brilliantly conceived tale of greed, politics, family loyalties, and vengeance." — Kirkus Reviews

"An engrossing tale about organized crime from the perspective of a kidnapper whose agenda will keep you guessing until the end." — Entertainment Weekly's MUST LIST



"A Quiet Vendetta is highly recommended for readers interested in the psychological makeup and motivation behind the actions of both the hunter and his prey. The faint of heart who would prefer a straightforward whodunit mystery are better advised to choose the works of a less creative writer." — New York Journal of Books

"R. J. Ellory proves himself a leader among the royalty of crime writers with this five-decade-long saga of Mafia history forming the framework for an exciting, well-constructed tale that ultimately becomes one of two men attempting to redeem themselves for their many individual sins against humanity." — New York Journal of Books
