The Brutal Art – Author Jesse Kellerman

An author with good breeding, father Jonathon Kellerman and mother Faye Kellerman. This is the first Jesse Kellerman novel I have read and I will be seeking out the others Sunstroke and Trouble. The story unfolds at a steady pace, and the historical interludes provide an interesting family history for the main character Ethan Muller, who discovers a mountain of art work in an abandoned slum apartment (owned by his family). The reader is left to ponder the origins and possible criminal sickness of the artist as Ethan delves into the mystery of the cherubs- the murdered boys’ faces who feature in the first panel of the artist’s work. This book keeps you hanging until the last twenty pages and the final resolution is surprising.

Busy chick’s highlight -  Definitely the ending.
