Talk about damaged and dysfunctional individuals, this book is full of them. Life has not been kind to the protagonists, and their ways of coping with trauma border on the extreme. A creepy edge of danger threads through the story, and the collision of wills that leads to the tentative building of a relationship between Gillian and Ray is fascinating. Solomon and suspense are a perfect match!
When women suddenly begin turning up murdered and posed in the manner of Gillian's portraits, the stakes are raised. The killer has announced his presence -- and his intent to make Gillian his final masterpiece. (WARNER FOREVER, Mar., 384 pp., $6.99)
