Members of New York’s art community are being slayed. Their bodies and blood used for copying some famous paintings. Clearly, the killer knows about art, he’s organized and he cleans every crime scene.
Kate McKinnon, ex-cop, now member of the art community gets involved in the investigation as an advisor because the first victim is Elena Solana, a performance artist who was like a daughter to her.
Besides, the Death Artist is obsessed with her, he sends her clues and he wants her to be his masterpiece.
I liked this book, it was exciting, it kept my attention and I enjoyed reading about some art history.
I like Kate, she’s intelligent, strong, brave and feminine. She can be afraid but she keeps going.
Sometimes, she took a lot of time deciphering the clues, but I liked how the story evolved.
Also, the police, the FBI and SWAT took a lot of time to mobilize. I know that in the real world it’s not like that, fortunately.
By last, I didn’t imagine The Death Artist’s identity, it was a surprise for me.
