The novel’s synopsis states: “A fine arts gallery painter has claimed the subjects of his paintings are his murder victims, that all the clues necessary to solve his crimes are hidden in his work, and he has challenged the world to catch him. Overnight he has caused a world-wide sensation that vastly polarizes the populace between his devoted supporters and his vehement critics, all filtered through the skewed lens of media info-tainment, and one which those who walk the shadowy halls of power cannot long ignore. But the Serial Artist is hiding dangerous secrets, many he can barely admit even to himself. Serial Artist is a dark mirror held up to the face of American culture, and when you gaze into the Abyss, the Serial Artist also gazes into you.”
