Art critic Laura Miller is fascinated by the life and work of Dante Omega. Commissioned to write a monograph on him, she is grateful for the chance, for the challenge it presents and as a panacea to her recent divorce. While interviewing him she stumbles upon some disturbing lithographs and a terrible truth emerges.
The pace is steady and the characters well-observed.
A gripping yarn.
One of the best 10 mystery novels of 1998.
