The Poison Artist

The Poison Artist

Author: Jonathan Moore Format: Paperback Release Date: 10/03/2016

Maxim Jakubowski April 2016 Highly Recommended. Championed by Stephen King as in the tradition of 'Red Dragon' in the terror stakes, this gripping thriller pushes all the right buttons, including a strong one for discomfort. Following a painful sentimental break-up, Dr. Caleb Maddox, a San Francisco toxicologist, meets the obligatory femme fatale in a bar which later proves to have a connection with a series of unexplained murders. His obligatory quest for the mysterious woman begins and quickly draws him into a sinister net from which he finds himself awkward to disentangle, with professional obligations and personal reasons involving secrets from his own past merging uncomfortably. Mining the roots of obsession alongside a plot stuck in fifth gear amongst a most memorable urban landscape, this is a creepy keeper!
