The Killer

(The third book in the Three Days in Chicagoland series)
A Novella by

The Killer is the final book in award-winning author R.J. Ellory's electrifying ebook trilogy, THREE DAYS IN CHICAGOLAND. The testimonies of the sister, the cop and the killer will at last reveal the dreadful truth behind the brutal murder of a young girl in Chicago in 1956.

Let's face facts here-there's some folks who just shouldn't be allowed to raise up kids.
Harsh, but true.

I'd have to include myself among them, for sure, but I reckon my father would get top billing.

I've been in Chicago for over ten years now. I was raised in Taylorville, Illinois, but I fled here back in '46. Not before I took a childhood of batterings from my old man, and saw my ma suffer vicious beating after vicious beating. Oh yeah, Ray Woodroffe regretted both his marriage and his kids, and he didn't shy away from showing us.

So I came here. Earned some money, got a place of my own. But that kind of cruelty leaves its mark. It's hereditary. And it found its way into my heart, my bones, my blood. I've been living with guilt a good long time now and finally it's time to make amends. I am a killer and tomorrow morning at ten o'clock, not a moment sooner or later, I am going to die in the electric chair.

Includes an exclusive preview of Ellory's gripping novel, A Dark and Broken Heart.
