Author Snapshot

Listed among the most respected thriller and mystery authors today and described by his readers as a cross between Agatha Christie, Lee Child, and John Lescroart, bestselling author Ronald Barak keeps his readers flipping the pages into the wee hours of the night as they follow the gripping adventures of savvy U.S. District Court Judge Cyrus Brooks and crafty veteran D.C. homicide detective Frank Lotello.

Ron derives great satisfaction in knowing that his books not only entertain but also stimulate others to think about how things might be, how people can actually resolve real-world problems. In particular, Barak tackles the country’s dysfunctional government representatives—not just back-seat driving criticism for the sake of being a back-seat driver, but truly framing practical remedies to the political abuse and corruption adversely affecting too many people’s lives today. Barak’s extensive legal background and insight allow him to cleverly cross-pollenate his fiction and today’s sad state of political reality.

Bestselling novels in the Brooks/Lotello Thriller Series include The Amendment KillerThe Puppet MasterPayback, and the highly-anticipated new election fraud thriller, JK’s Code.

Ron and his wife, Barbie, and the four-legged members of their family reside in Pacific Palisades, California.
