Death is an art, and he is the master . . .

Three glass cabinets appear in London’s Trafalgar Square containing a gruesome art installation: the floating corpses of three homeless men. Shock turns to horror when it becomes clear that the bodies are real.

The cabinets are traced to @nonymous – an underground artist shrouded in mystery who makes a chilling promise: MORE WILL FOLLOW.

Eighteen years ago, Detective Inspector Grace Archer escaped a notorious serial killer. Now, she and her caustic DS, Harry Quinn, must hunt down another.

As more bodies appear at London landmarks and murders are livestreamed on social media, their search for @nonymous becomes a desperate race against time. But what Archer doesn’t know is that the killer is watching their every move – and he has his sights firmly set on her . . .

He is creating a masterpiece. And she will be the star of his show.

I really enjoyed this creepy thriller.  I couldn’t put it down and finished in two sittings.

DI Grace Archer moves to Charing Cross and her first investigation begins with a sinister street art display in Trafalger Square. Three homeless men are found in glass cabinets and named The Foresaken. Unfortunately for Grace and her team, the artist is a serial killer and promises more to follow.

A gripping plot which is dark, macabre and sinister. The few chapters told by the killer are written well as they are scary in that he is meeting and choosing his victims in every day locations.

Even though I identified the killer I still enjoyed this book as the actions of the killer are shocking and surprising.  I was gripped from the first chapter.

The Art of Death is an interesting crime thriller.
