History and fiction collide with deadly consequences in the third Kate McKinnon novel - a story of bitter revenge, where the past invades the present and a decades-old secret proves fatal. Kate McKinnon has lived many lives, from Queens cop to Manhattan socialite, television art historian, and the woman who helped the NYPD capture the Death Artist and the Colour Blind killer. But that's the past. Now, devastated by the death of her husband, Kate is attempting to quietly rebuild her life as a single woman. Gone are the Park Avenue penthouse and designer clothes. Now it's a downtown loft and downtown fashion as Kate plunges back into her work - writing a book about America's most celebrated artistic era, the New York School of the 1940s and '50s, a circle that included Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Mark Rothko. But when a lunatic starts slashing the very paintings she is writing about - along with their owners - Kate is once again tapped by the NYPD to decipher the evidence: cryptic images that reveal both the paintings and the people who will be the next.

"A crime novel that is savage and erudite, layered in wit, satire and psychosis - in short, a chilling read" USA Today on The Death Artist "Gripping... the author's painterly eye heightens the colours - and suspense - of his deadly drama... Colour Blind delivers" "Santlofer's insight into the passion at the heart of great art brings this evocative thriller to richly impastoed life. Bottom line: fine portrait." People magazine A page turner that combines the author's knack for crafting creepy but fascinating criminals with his skills as an artist. Santlofer has filled the pages with paintings that provide clues for both the reader and his terrific heroine, ex-cop and art historian Kate McKinnon. Santlofer's strongest work yet will keep everyone guessing." Phillip Margolin "The Killing Art is a terrific, fast-paced trip through the New York art world past and present, and the author's inside knowledge illuminates characters and plot alike." Peter Robinson.
