Detective Lena Gamble knows how to handle the hottest cases--do it fast and keep her head down. Because if it all goes south, the department won’t hesitate to make a scapegoat out of her. So when she gets called to the scene of a double murder at Club 3 AM, the latest A-list hangout for Hollywood celebs, she knows the fun is only beginning.

And she's not wrong. It's just much worse than she imagined. As expected, one of the victims is club owner Johnny Bosco, one of the most well-connected men in Hollywood politics. But the shocker comes when Lena sees the other victim: twenty-five-year-old Jacob Gant, acquitted just days ago of murdering his sixteen-year-old neighbor, after L.A.'s latest trial-of-the-century. 

But are these victims of a father's righteous anger or is something bigger at play?

Robert Ellis delivers all the twists and turns fans have come to expect in this bestselling series with plenty to spare in Murder Season, his most outstanding white-knuckled thriller yet.

Murder season.
She was floating, drifting. Cruising through an open seam between sleep and consciousness.
She glanced at the clock radio but didn’t really see it, then fell back into the stream and let go. It was somewhere after midnight, sometime before dawn. Early spring, and the air inside the house was already deadened from the oppressive heat. A steep, lifeless desert wave had swelled over Los Angeles two

Praise for Murder Season

Praise for The Lost Witness

“The plot zigs and zags like a slalom course. . . .  Once you start The Lost Witness, you'll stay with it.”
--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

“Scorching… 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)

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 à la Michael Connelly with pulse-pounding Dean Koontzian psychological suspense.”
--Chicago Tribune

“The book is terrific.”
--Janet Evanovich, People magazine

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
