Washington, embroiled in the mid-term elections, did not want to hear about serial killings. But when the newspapers reported a fourth murder, when they gave the killer a name and details of his horrendous crimes, there were few people that could ignore it. Detective Robert Miller is assigned to the case. He and his partner begin the task of correlating and cross-referencing the details of each crime scene. Rapidly things begin to complicate. The victims do not officially exist. Their personal details do not register on any known systems. The harder Miller works, the less it makes sense. And as Miller unearths ever more disturbing facts, he starts to face truths so far-removed from his own reality that he begins to fear for his life. This is a novel about trust, loyalty, and beliefs that are so ingrained which, when challenged, they leave people with nothing. Vast in scope, A SIMPLE ACT OF VIOLENCE is an expose of the brutality of covert operations, the power of greed and the insidious nature of corruption. It is also a story of love and trust that somehow managed to survive the very worst that the world could throw at it.

The best Crime Fiction Mystery I’ve read this year. 2009!
Sorry Jo Nesbo!

“A Simple Act of Violence” is so good I’m going to buy everything I find from this superb author.

R. J. Ellory is a very talented story teller and quite intelligent when it comes to creating a plot full of clever turns and suspense. He also seems to have his heart and mind on the right side when it comes to politics. Either that or he is very objective, which is also fine by me.

When thinking of “A Simple Act of Violence” I think of books such as “Gorky Park” or “A Small Death in Lisbon”. In other words, books that transcend the Noir Mystery Crime Fiction world, books that make me proud of being a big fan of this genre.

Excellent!


Cheers
