Empty Rooms is coming your way!

The official publication date for my new thriller is February 8, 2015, but it might be available from some outlets prior to that, so keep checking. Currently itís up on and Amazon, with more to come.

This is an important book for me; a major crime/thriller that introduces two characters, Frank Robey and Richie (Maynard) Krebbs, about whom I hope to be writing for a long time to come. Itís a very dark thriller (trigger warningóit involves Richie and Frank trying to track down a serial pedophile and a missing girl. Iím told that itís handled with taste and discretion, but the subject matter could still be disturbing to some).

Itís already had some nice reviews, including this one at Cat After Dark, and praise from some of my heroes of thriller writing:

Empty Rooms is as good and moving as a thriller can be. Keenly observed and deftly written, itís something youíll want on your shelf as long as you have one. Mariotteís characters come off the page at you, and through them, the author spins a tale truly of our time. I couldnít put this one down.

Empty Rooms is a searing, no-holds barred journey into darkness. Jeffrey J. Mariotte knows the key is character, character, character and has delivered a story about men who relentlessly work the case at the same time the case works them. I was pulled in from the start on this one and it never let up. I highly recommend it.

The book will be published by WordFire Press. Thereíll be excerpts on my Facebook author page, and all the news will be posted there and on my blog. I hope youíll give it a try, and spread the word!

Thanks for reading!
