In 1972, on the day of his sentencing, renowned artist and serial killer Marden Hexcamp is shot dead in the courtroom. Members of his Mansonesque band of followers are imprisoned or simply disappear. Fast-forward more than thirty years: A suspected prostitute is found murdered in a candlelit motel room, the first in a series of horrors suggesting Hexcamp’s art remains alive and treacherous. Following a trail of beautiful – and profoundly disturbing – artwork, homicide detectives Carson Ryder and Harry Nautilus descend into the shocking world of the Death Collectors, people who spend vast sums to collect serial-killer memorabilia. As Ryder and Nautilus race to solve a thirty-year conspiracy, it becomes sadly evident that at the intersection of art and madness, death is beauty, tragedy a memento, and suffering suitable for framing.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 2/12/2014

    " Kerley has a subtle touch for complex plotting and employs a shotgun's force of action, a wildly exotic group of characters, and an unusual locale to great effect. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 1/17/2014

    " This is the third book with Carson Ryder as the main character. This story is centered around those who collect items originating around serial killers. It had an interesting premise and like his first two novels, kept me to the end. This is a great up and coming author. Start reading him now and you will not have to read so many to catch up with him later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 12/12/2013

    " Good 2nd book in the Carson Ryder series, clever plots & twists. The Carson Ryder series is developing into quite a good crime series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen | 12/9/2013

    " Read this some time ago, but distinctly remember it being very good. May have to re-visit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Moffat | 11/25/2013

    " This is the second in the Carson Ryder series and I enjoyed the storyline which is about the strange people out there who collect serial killer memorabilia. I didn't guess the ending which was a bonus, and I look forward to reading the third book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dominika Daniluk-Gluchy | 10/28/2013

    " This book's story line is very good but it lacked suspension in my opinion hence only 3 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 12/22/2012

    " I'm about a third of the way into this one, and I have to say I really like Jack Kerley's style. I don't particularly care for 1st person novels, but Kerley handles it well. This is quick reading...[when I get the chance to read-ha!:]. But I'm taking more opportunities these days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 tinlondon | 11/19/2012

    " Another good story. I like the main characters, and the people are believable. There's one plot thread that just seems to lead nowhere but otherwise it's exciting, fast-paced and kept me guessing. "
