    Paperback Description:

    “The surprises keep coming in La Salle’s twisting debut thriller, in which good and evil aren’t always black and white.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

    From actor, director, producer, and author Eriq La Salle, comes the first in a heart-pounding crime thriller series. Every ten years, for the past 30 years, a dozen clergymen are killed, brutally murdered in twisted scenes emulating the deaths of Jesus and his disciples. Now, “The Martyr Maker” has set his mark on New York City.

    30 years. 36 priests butchered. His bloodiest masterpiece is yet to come.

    The Laws of Depravity follows two NYPD detectives and an FBI agent as they race to catch a serial killer before he completes his last cycle of kills and disappears forever.

    Clerical transgressions at the heart of Spotlight meets the visceral horror of Thomas Harris’s Red Dragon, for a gritty, dark story about of how some of the most trusted members of society fail. The Laws of Depravity raises eye-opening questions about faith when the lines between good and evil have blurred beyond recognition.
