Thirty years after renowned artist and serial killer Marsden Hexcamp is shot dead in the courtroom, members of his Mansonesque cult are being murdered with scraps of his artwork left at the scene. As detectives Carson and Nautilus investigate, they learn that an impending underground auction of Hexcamp's long-missing works may be fueling the killings.
A uniquely original premise in that the detective's incarcerated and psychopathic brother provides insight to solve the case.
Even better than Kerley's first novel, The Hundredth Man.
Kerley is an author to watch.
