Acts of Violence

by Ryan David Jahn
£8.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (2010)

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.
