NYPD sergeant Kathleen Mallory—computer genius, street
fighter, provocative waif, peerless investigator, manipulative beauty—is the
gorgeous, near-sociopathic heroine of this knife-edged suspense novel. Along
with old pals Ricker, Coffey, and faithful admirer Charles Butler, Mallory is
determined to solve the brutal “art as death” murder of an untalented but
highly touted artist-critic.
Mallory believes the case is the work of the same killer
who, 12 years earlier, hacked a young artist and a talented ballerina to
pieces. Baffling and intricate, Mallory wades through art critics, bag ladies,
madmen, and mafioso alike in getting to the bottom of these crimes. Secrets,
very deep and very dark, emerge and strike closer and closer to home. By the
end, she will come to know the truth—but the truth may be the most dangerous
illusion of all.
