The Art of Death By David Fennell

The Art of Death By David Fennell


Death is an art, and he is the master . . .

Three glass cabinets appear in London’s Trafalgar Square containing a gruesome art installation: the floating corpses of three homeless men. Shock turns to horror when it becomes clear that the bodies are real.

The cabinets are traced to @nonymous – an underground artist shrouded in mystery who makes a chilling promise: MORE WILL FOLLOW.

Eighteen years ago, Detective Inspector Grace Archer escaped a notorious serial killer. Now, she and her caustic DS, Harry Quinn, must hunt down another.

As more bodies appear at London landmarks and murders are livestreamed on social media, their search for @nonymous becomes a desperate race against time. But what Archer doesn’t know is that the killer is watching their every move – and he has his sights firmly set on her . . .

He is creating a masterpiece. And she will be the star of his show.

My Thoughts:

This is a serial killer thriller at it’s best. And this is a debut novel which I couldn’t get over as it is absolutely brilliant. Once you start reading, you wont want to stop, it is very dark and twisty and the further you get into the story, the further you get drawn in more. Bodies are appearing at London Landmarks and the murder is live streaming them on the internet, for all to see. Can DI Grace Archer find out who the killer is and stop them before it is too late? I found the writing descriptive and there are parts that are a little gruesome but I was not put off, books like this make you more aware of your surroundings and I did have to check over my shoulder a couple of times. Creepy and dark but oh so good. I cannot wait for David’s next book now.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. Thank you to Eleanor Stammeijer @bonnierbooks for sending me a copy.
