K. Elliot Simmons has written over two-dozen best-selling novels, mostly crime fiction. He rarely writes from the perspective of the detective trying to solve the crime, preferring to tell the story through the eyes of the victims. The two notable exceptions are his first and last books, both about serial killers and both written from the perspective of the killer.
Here is a quick summary of some of Ken’s most popular books.
