Editorial Reviews



The Girl Buried in the Woods (Detective Matt Jones, Book 3)

"With an early focus on the possible murderers, Ellis' (The Love Killings, 2016, etc.) series entry is more thriller than mystery. The author works this to great effect as the story reveals the burden of unearthing evidence. Ellis generates an impressive amount of suspense ... the detective's frankness also leads to brief conversations that, along with periodic action sequences, provide the book with a swift pace. Although this installment is not closely tied to the preceding two novels, its ending implies that Matt's multivolume tale is far from over. Solid entertainment."
--Kirkus Reviews

The Love Killings (Detective Matt Jones, Book 2)

"Ellis (City of Echoes, 2015, etc.) eases new readers into the second Matt-centric novel. Having previously suffered betrayal, Matt has good reason to be paranoid, which results in a gleefully tense sequel as he quickly notices someone watching him. His relationships are complex ... the mystery is straightforward, and Matt's propensity for repeatedly asking himself questions keeps him (and readers) focused. The author's writing is tight. Though the prose is never unduly graphic, some of the murderer's actions will likely make some readers queasy. The ending effectively sets the stage for the next installment. A persistently gripping thriller with strong characters."
--Kirkus Reviews

City of Echoes (Detective Matt Jones, Book 1)

"Stunning emotional force. Ellis keeps everything in focus while building a staggering momentum."
--Booklist, Starred Review

"City of Echoes is a dark, gritty, one-sit read. Ellis' trademark plotting is on full display here."

"Only really good writers can make you feel so strongly. City of Echoes is another bravura effort from the talented Robert Ellis."
--Mystery Scene

"City of Echoes is an absorbing and entertaining read from first page to last and documents novelist Robert Ellis as a master of the genre."
--Midwest Book Review

"City of Echoes is a Best Book of the Month."

City of Fire (Lena Gamble, Book 1)

"Los Angeles under a cloud of acrid smoke . . . Robert Ellis's City of Fire is a gripping, spooky crime novel."
--New York Times Hot List Pick

"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, New York Times Bestselling Author

"City of Fire features a tough but deeply flawed protagonist, a tantalizingly complex plot, fully realized--and realistic--characters, and most of all, a palpable intensity. And if that weren't enough, the bombshell plot twist at the novel's conclusion makes this an absolute must read for thriller aficionados."
--Chicago Tribune

"City of Fire's brisk, complex plot is enhanced by realistic characters, a credible view of L.A., and an attention to detail that should put Ellis on many must-read lists. Ellis excels at vivid writing and expert plotting keeps the reader off-kilter."
--South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Best Mysteries of the Year

"This book is fast, gruesome, and twisted, like a scary Jodie Foster movie. Ellis makes it easy to be terrified. Recommended for all popular collections."
--Library Journal

"This book is terrific."
--Janet Evanovich, People magazine

"Propulsive plot. A scorcher of an ending. City of Fire looks to win [Ellis] an ever-wider audience."
--Baltimore Sun

The Lost Witness (Lena Gamble, Book 2)

"Scorching. Deliciously twisted. Nothing is what it appears to be. Ellis succeeds masterfully in both playing fair and pulling surprise after surprise in a story that feels like a runaway car plunging down a mountain road full of switchbacks."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"Ellis serves up a killer crime tale with riveting characters and relentless twists."
--Booklist, Starred Review

Murder Season (Lena Gamble, Book 3)

"Murder Season: a terrific sick-soul-of-LA thriller. Before you can say Chinatown we are immersed in a tale of mind-boggling corruption where virtually every character in the book--with the exception of Lena--has a hidden agenda. Ellis is a master plotter. Along the way we meet wonderful characters."
--Connecticut Post, Hearst Media New Group

"Within the space of a few books, Ellis has demonstrated that rare ability to skillfully navigate his readers through a complex plot filled with interesting, dangerous and surprising characters."
