Bruce Hartman has worked as a pianist, bookseller and attorney. The author of eight novels, he lives with his wife in Philadelphia.

His eighth novel, a legal thriller entitled THE DEVIL'S CHAPLAIN, was released in May, 2018. This book tells the story of a young attorney, Charlotte Ambler, who volunteers to represent a death row inmate, a once-prominent biologist named Christopher Ritter, who asserts his innocence but doesn’t regard his life as worth saving. Charlotte fights to save him in spite of himself as the clock ticks toward the execution date. In this gripping tale of deception and self-deception, betrayal and violence, lawyer and client find common ground in their quest for justice and human values.

Award-winning crime writer Ken Brue

I'm very happy to report that in its May 2018 issue, Midwest Book Review, one of the most respected independent book review organizations, has published its review of The Devil's Chaplain, praising the book as "powerfully wrought" and "thoroughly engrossing... a riveting story that hinges on clues so elusive that the tension is exquisitely drawn."

“Borges stirred the metal straw around in his cup and went on: “If two brothers, starting on the day they were born, read all the same books in the same order, they would have the same ethics.  In a moral sense they would be the same man.  You or I, depending on the syllabus, might be Howard Vaughan.  Cain might be Abel.”
Bruce Hartman, The Philosophical Detective

“Like all old men, I nurse the illusion that if I can remember enough of the past and imagine enough of the future, I will never reach the end of my life, or if I do, it will take forever to get there.”
Bruce Hartman, The Philosophical Detective

“Margaret felt her anger taking control of her in a way she had never experienced before, jabbing in and out of her eyes, her mouth, her stomach, as if she were some poor soul snagged by demons in a Hieronymus Bosch painting…”
Bruce Hartman, The Muse of Violence
