From the Editor

Like a gunshot echoing through the canyons above LA, this unsettling mystery reverberates with misdirection, distortion, and voices from the past.

Rookie LAPD detective Matt Jones gets thrown into the deep end on his first day working Homicide, and from there, the novel’s title becomes especially apt. Choices and actions resound through the story, with different implications as time goes on. Matt witnesses the return of a copycat killer—unless it’s the original, circling back again. The echoes catch up to Matt as well: he feels alone in the world, but people from his past keep coming back to haunt him.

Author Robert Ellis orchestrates an array of muted facts and half-heard stories, creating an unnerving composition. His incomparable main character, Matt, is left to filter out the truth from the noise, his allies from his enemies. His situation reminded me of a harsh wake-up call I had about a friend of mine many years ago. I had seen hints of her selfishness, but I gave her the benefit of the doubt—until I got burned. It doesn’t always feel good to have your instincts about people confirmed. Matt learns this lesson more than once in City of Echoes. In fact, choosing the right people to trust quickly becomes a matter of life and death. He struggles, and he doesn’t always make the right choice at the right time, but those shortcomings only made me sympathize with him more. I had faith in Matt even when things got dark—and echoes of his story will be ringing through me for a long time to come.

- Kjersti Egerdahl, Editor
