A woman comes face-to-face with a serial killer who glorifies the art of death in this -ingenious-* thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Penn Cage series.
They are called -The Sleeping Women.- A series of unsettling paintings in which the nude female subjects appear to be not asleep, but dead. Photojournalist Jordan Glass has another reason to find the paintings disturbing...The face on one of the nudes is her own--or perhaps the face of her twin sister, who disappeared and is still missing. At the urging of the FBI, Jordan becomes both hunter and hunted in a search for the anonymous artist--an obsessed killer who seems to know more about Jordan and her family than she is prepared to face...
