The Author

author picture

Born and raised in south eastern Pennsylvania, Robert has lived in Los Angeles for the past twelve years and has written and produced over 1,000 television commercials for political campaigns. He has previously published two novels, and is currently working on the next thriller in the Detective Lena Gamble series.

The Novel

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 victim’s 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 brother’s 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 Romeo’s 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 . . .

Dorset Echo
'a sharp, snappy and engrossing thriller with a chilling beginning
and a wicked twist. It will have you hooked from the outset and turning the pages into the early hours.'

The Bookseller
'A commercial first novel with lots of enthusiasm from Pan.'
