LoveReading View on Art of Deception

A chilling discovery, a young life in mortal danger, and a series of dark secrets that have been hidden for decades, Art of Deception is the thrilling new crime novel from professional forensic psychologist A.J. Cross.

The ability of the author to translate her the real-life experience of forensic pathology gives her novels a shocking and scary in-your-face realism.

Art of Deception Synopsis

The New Year brings a gruesome new discovery for forensic psychologist Dr Kate Hanson and Birmingham's Unsolved Crimes Unit. A mummified body is found beneath the floorboards of a deserted lake house in Woodgate Country Park. The dead man was art student Nathan Troy, who disappeared 20 years ago, but evidence at the scene suggests the killer has been keeping an eye on his long-dead victim. As Kate begins to dig further into Nathan's past, she discovers a series of potentially toxic relationships. Why do his house mates refuse to talk about that time or their friendship with Nathan? And what was his connection to the beautiful and apparently promiscuous daughter of his professor? When the disappearance of a local teenager confirms that Nathan's killer is back, Kate and the team must work fast to untangle a web of lies and unmask a murderer who has lain dormant for 20 years.
