Synopsis: History and fiction collide with deadly consequences in the third Kate McKinnon novel - a story of bitter revenge, where the past invades the present and a decades-old secret proves fatal. Kate McKinnon has lived many lives, from Queens cop to Manhattan socialite, television art historian, and the woman who helped the NYPD capture the "Death Artist" and the "Colour Blind" killer. But that's the past. Now, devastated by the death of her husband, Kate is attempting to quietly rebuild her life as a single woman. Gone are the Park Avenue penthouse and designer clothes. Now it's a downtown loft and downtown fashion as Kate plunges back into her work - writing a book about America's most celebrated artistic era, the "New York School of the 1940s and '50s", a circle that included Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, and Mark Rothko. But when a lunatic starts slashing the very paintings she is writing about - along with their owners - Kate is once again tapped by the NYPD to decipher the evidence: cryptic images that reveal both the paintings and the people who will be the next.
Review: "The Killing Art is a terrific, fast-paced trip through the New York art world past and present, and the author's inside knowledge illuminates characters and plot alike." Peter Robinson.
