Detective Robert Miller is assigned to the case. He and his partner begin the task of correlating the details of each crime scene and rapidly things begin to get complicated.
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 he unearths ever more disturbing facts, Miller must face the truth about the corrupt world that he lives in. It's a grim reality that will put his life in danger.
This is a novel about trust, loyalty, and beliefs which are so ingrained that - when challenged - they leave people with nothing. Vast in scope, A Simple Act of Violence is an exposé of the brutality of unchecked power, the seduction of greed and the insidious nature of corruption. It is also a story of love and of trust that somehow managed to survive the very worst that the world could throw at it.

What a surprise. What appears to be a standard serial killer hard-bitten cop thriller becomes so much more in Ellory's skillful hands. Political conspiracy has never felt so profound.
