Crime writer caught faking Amazon reviews
According to NEWSER, Ellory was caught in the hilarious act by fellow author Jeremy Duns. The British author was outed over the weekend after Duns tweeted that Ellory was writing purple-loving reviews of his own books, but writing mean ones about competitors.
Calls to Ellory were not returned.
