A young woman is found, brutally murdered and left on gruesome display in the "safety" of her own home. The atrocity kicks off an investigation into a bizarre string of increasingly disturbing murders, all believed to be perpetrated by someone of unprecedented savagery and cunning. As the city's panic rises, civil attorney Teddy Mack is thrown headlong into the grisly homicide case - and into a world of dirty politics and corrupt justice, where deceptions are as deadly as the killer's twisted secrets. Now, another woman is about to meet the same horrific fate as the others.
To end a madman's reign, Teddy must enter his maze - a place of unimaginable terror and shocking revelations.
With his second thriller, L.A. Times best-selling author Robert Ellis delivers an explosive listen with full-blown characters caught in a world stacked with twists and turns and an emotional intensity that burns white-hot.
The Dead Room serves as the introduction to City of Fire and remains a truly one of a kind find.

Intense, intricate story, superb narration
Wow! Refreshingly Different!
I gave read many serial killer stories and it starts getting repetitive but this book was refreshing. This one follows a young criminal lawyer instead of a police detective. It is by far one of the best mystery novels I've read. Also I have never listened to Jim McCance before but he was great, at times he sounded like Buffalo Bill from "Silence of the Lambs" and other times he sounded like my favorite narrator, Scott Brick. If you like Scott Brick you should like Jim McCance.
I enjoyed listening to the evolution of Teddy who was somewhat naive and desperate for a mentor.
The underwater scene, I'll leave it at that. ;)
Once I got into it I couldn't put it down.
