THE DEAD ROOM -- A NO. 1 AMAZON.COM BESTSELLER (US & UK)
A young woman is found, brutally murdered and left on gruesome display in the "safety" of her own home. The atrocity kicks off an investigation into a bizarre string of increasingly disturbing murders, all believed to be perpetrated by someone of unprecedented savagery and cunning. As the city's panic rises, civil attorney Teddy Mack is thrown headlong into the grisly homicide case--and into a world of dirty politics and corrupt justice, where deceptions are as deadly as the killer's twisted secrets. Now, another woman is about to meet the same horrific fate as the others. To end a madman's reign, Teddy must enter his maze--a place of unimaginable terror and shocking revelations.
With his second thriller, L.A. TIMES bestselling author, Robert Ellis, delivers an explosive read with full-blown characters caught in a world stacked with twists and turns and an emotional intensity that burns white-hot.
THE DEAD ROOM serves as the introduction to CITY OF FIRE, and remains a truly one of a kind find.

Praise for City of Fire
"Robert Ellis's City of Fire is a gripping, spooky crime novel." The New York Times
"A no-holds-barred, barnburner of a thriller that blends Los Angeles-style crime fiction a la Michael Connelly with pulse-pounding Dean Koontzian psychological suspense." Chicago Tribune
"City of Fire is my kind of crime novel. Gritty, tight, and assured. Riding with Detective Lena Gamble through the hills of Los Angeles is something I could get used to. She's tough, smart, and most of all, she's real." Michael Connelly
