Advance Praise for "City of ""Fire""This book pumps your blood, keeps you racing through the night, with a cast of characters at full throttle." --Mark Moscowitz, director of the award-winning documentary "Stone Reader" Praise for Robert Ellis "Ellis writes in crisp, punchy prose, mirrored by the novel's short, sound bite--like chapters, which are skillfully woven to form an absorbing narrative."--"Publishers Weekly" on "Access to Power" "A page-turning potboiler. We like this book. The tone is a fusion of James Ellroy and James Carville." --"Philadelphia"" Daily News" on "Access to Power" "Robert Ellis can hold his own with any of the heavy hitters who write suspense." --Robert K. Tanenbaum, author of "Counterplay", on "Access to Power" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
When a businessman arrives home to find his wife in bed, carved from belly to throat with a very sharp knife, the elite Robbery-Homicide division of the L.A.P.D responds in full force and Detective Lena Gamble prepares for her first major case. At first all fingers point towards the victims husband, but best-case scenarios only happen in films and it soon transpires that this murder is one of a series of brutal crimes against women and the work of a killer dubbed Romeo by the ravenous Hollywood media. Lena is all too aware of the peril of the public eye - she has found herself in it before, on the night of her rock-star brothers unsolved murder five years ago. And now she risks a far more dangerous fame as a cloud of conspiracy descends on her investigation and she edges towards Romeos deadly line of sight . . . Whilst a massive forest fire blankets the city the murderous trail moves far too close to home and past and present horrors seem to be colliding in a single nightmare. Lena must catch this psychopath before she becomes his next glamorous victim. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

A good readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 June 2014
This is a well written and plotted police procedural. It won't set the heather on fire as a blockbuster but it is interesting and kept me turning the pages. I thought the characters were believable and well enough drawn to get immersed in the plot with them. The plot, the hunt for a serial killer, was logical and linear so it was easy to follow the twists and turns. I would read another in the series.
