Empty Places, which was named Thriller of the Month by e-thriller.com in March, tells the story of a war weary journalist who seeks redemption by solving the murder of his ex-wife, a woman he still loves.

The year is 1987. America is clawing its way out of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Washington pursues illegal and unpopular wars in Central America. In the wealthy desert playground of Palm Springs, storefronts that once catered to the rich sit empty and shuttered. Crowds of bored rich teenagers in designer clothing entertain themselves with expensive cars and cheap drugs, while those less fortunate haunt darkened street corners, offering themselves for sale.

This is the country to which war correspondent Peter Brandt returns. Physically and mentally scarred by the horrors he's covered, Peter comes home to bury his ex-wife, TV reporter Robin Anderson, only to discover she had been brutally murdered. With the local police unwilling to investigate her death, Peter sets out with retired cop Matt Banyon to expose Robin's killer. They uncover a shadowy world of anti-communists, drug smugglers, and corrupt politicians, and lay bare old wounds - including Peter's deep guilt over his failed marriage. In a final, cliff-hanging struggle, Peter faces his own fears--and death in a dark and empty place.

Midwest Book Review called Empty Places "... an exceptional thriller ... readers are compelled to keep reading, drawn into a constantly-evolving story line."

Book Viral's reviewer said, "A powerful and memorable thriller, Empty Places will certainly be well received by fans of the genre and bodes well for the next novel from Martin Roy Hill. Highly recommended!"

Australian thriller author Liam Saville described Empty Places as "crime writing at its best."
