After what Damien Hirst did to sheep perhaps some readers will agree with how the serial killer, in this grippingly nasty thriller, treats his victims who are all part of New Yorkâs art community. Not one for the squeamish, itâs an engrossing read that keeps you guessing.

Synopsis

The Death Artist by Jonathan Santlofer

A killer is preying on New York's art community, creating gruesome depictions of famous paintings, using human flesh and blood as his media. Terror stalks this world of genius, greed, inspiration, and jealousy -- a world Kate McKinnon knows all too well. A former NYPD cop who traded in her badge for a Ph.D in art history, Kate can see the method behind the psychopath's madness -- for the grisly slaughter of a former protege is drawing her into the predator's path. And as each new murder exceeds the last in savagery, Kate is trapped in the twisted obsessions of the death artist, who plans to use her body, her blood, and her fear to create the ultimate masterpiece.

"Santlofer's insight into the passion at the heart of greeat art brings his evocative thriller to richly impastoed life." - People magazine
