Acts of Violence by Ryan David Jahn

Katrina Marino is about to become America’s most infamous murder victim.

This is Katrina’s story, and the story of her killer.

It is also the story of Katrina’s neighbours, those who witnessed her murder and did nothing: the terrified Vietnam draftee; the woman who thinks she’s killed a child, and her husband who will risk everything for the truth; the former soldier planning suicide and the man who saves him.  And others whose lives are touched by the crime: the elderly teacher whose past is catching up with him; the amateur blackmailer who’s about to find out just what sort of people he’s been threatening; the corrupt cop who believes he is God’s ‘red right hand’.

Shocking and compassionate, angry and gripping, Acts of Violence is a sprawling, cinematic tour-de-force, a terrifying crime novel unlike any other.

Peer & Press Reviews

Fancy a thriller?  Acts of Violence and Low Life will keep you turning the pages through complex but rewarding plots.

Sunday Post

Dark, compelling and powerful; this is a book of real substance.  Ryan David Jahn is a rare and fine talent.

R. J. Ellory

An audacious, inventive piece of literary thriller writing.
