R. J. Ellory

Roger Jon Ellory is a British thriller writer. He was born in June 1965

His first novel, "Candlemoth", was published in 2003 and was shortlisted for the CWA Ian Fleming Steel Dagger Award in the same year. "Ghostheart" was published in 2004 and "A Quiet Vendetta" was published in 2005.

He continues to work full-time with people affected by long-term drug abuse. He has been married for fifteen years and lives in the West Midlands with his wife and son.

In August 2006, Ellory's fourth novel was released, entitled "City of Lies", andin the early part of 2007 it was shortlisted for the CWA Steel Dagger for Best Thriller.

Ellory's fifth novel "A Quiet Belief In Angels" was released on 22 August 2007. Hailed as an epic accomplishment, it garnered a quote from fellow crime fiction author Michael Connelly:

"A Quiet Belief In Angels" is a beautiful and haunting book. This is a tour-de-force from RJ Ellory."

"A Quiet Belief In Angels" was selected as one of the titles in the Richard & Judy Bookclub 2008. This was officially announced on 27 December 2007, and Ellory's book was reviewed on the Channel 4 Richard & Judy Show on 30 January 2008. As is always the case with the R&J Bookclub format, Ellory's work was introduced to a far wider audience as a result of the tremendous quantity of advertising and promotion that is attendant to such a selection.

Exceeding all expectations, "A Quiet Belief In Angels" has sold in excess of 250,000 copies since its release, and has also been purchased for translation into a total of seventeen languages including French, Japanese, Norwegian, Lithuanian and Brazilian. It achieved Number 3 in the Sunday Times bestseller List in the week of its TV review.

Ellory, according to reports from his website, is releasing another book in October 2008, entitled 'A Simple Act of Violence'.
