Jonathan Santlofer is the author of five best-selling novels, The Death Artist, Color Blind, The Killing Art, Anatomy . Publisher’s Weekly Best Books.

Jonathan Santlofer is the author of five best-selling novels, The Death Artist, Color Blind, The Killing Art, Anatomy of Fear, and The Murder Notebook. Also a well-known artist, Santlofer’s artwork is in such collections as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Newark Museum, Norton Simon Museum, and Tokyo’s Institute of Contemporary Art. A native New Yorker, Santlofer lives and works in Manhattan.

The Killing Art is Jonathan Santlofer's most gripping and chilling story yet, but that isn't the only reason the novel is remarkable. The author, who is also an acclaimed artist, has created works of art just for the book that tantalize and challenge readers by using well-known symbols in innovative ways, allowing them to decode the clues along with Kate. A masterwork of both suspense fiction and art, The Killing Art will impress both thriller readers and art fans as the plot twists and turns toward a shocking climax.

Jonathan Santlofer's Kate McKinnon books definitely fill the bill. I am 1/2 way through The Killing Art and am enjoying yet another book featuring Kate who is an art expert and also a policewoman who specialises in crimes to do with art. She is a slick woman with a big heart. The Death Artist", "Color Blind" and "The Killing Art" all feature an appealing heroine named Kate McKinnon, who can pull off an evening with a group of socialites who wouldn't say "CRAP" if they had a mouthful, and the next day be sitting around with a bunch of detectives and swearing like a sailor.

With "The Killing Art," Jonathan Santlofer has written a well-paced, intelligent and suspenseful mystery with a unique twist. The author has made art and it's history feel like a character in his book by including black and white paintings by the killer who is targeting paintings from the 1930s and the owners of those works. It draws you into a world where art and it's history provide clues for the reader to decipher along with the police.

A third art-and-murder cocktail from Santlofer (Color Blind, 2004, et. The same protagonist, too: Kate McKinnon, New York City cop turned modern art historian, but ready to sleuth again when family or friends are victims. Here, good friend and art patron Nicholas Starrett’s body is found in his Long Island home next to a slashed painting worth millions. A Pollock and a de Kooning have previously been slashed in the city. At each site, the vandal leaves small black-and-white paintings (the author, himself an artist, created and reproduced them in the book as a lagniappe); they provide clues.

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 Color 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 funky Chelsea loft, downtown fashion, and even a hip new haircut 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. As she deciphers the evidence—cryptic images that reveal both the paintings and the people who will be the next targets—Kate is drawn into a world where art and art history provide lethal clues.

The Killing Art is Jonathan Santlofer's most gripping and chilling story yet, but that isn't the only reason the novel is remarkable. The author, who is also an acclaimed artist, has created works of art just for the book that tantalize and challenge readers by using well-known symbols in innovative ways, allowing them to decode the clues along with Kate. A masterwork of both suspense fiction and art, The Killing Art will impress both thriller readers and art fans as the plot twists and turns toward a shocking climax.

This review is from:"The Killing Art" and "Color Blind", as well as "The Death Artist". (Kindle Edition)
I love a good mystery....who doesn't? Jonathan Santlofer's Kate McKinnon books definitely fill the bill. "The Death Artist", "Color Blind" and "The Killing Art" all feature an appealing heroine named Kate McKinnon, who can pull off an evening with a group of socialites who wouldn't say "CRAP" if they had a mouthful, and the next day be sitting around with a bunch of detectives and swearing like a sailor. These three books are mesmerizing. The heroine has a conscience and a heart, as well as the occasional foul mouth and a willingness to get her hands dirty. Appreciation of fine art is woven in and around the plots and characters so skillfully that I soaked up knowledge of different schools of art, without even realizing that it was happening. The murders are vivid and creepy and full-bodied, no pun intended. I will not give away any of the plotlines or any more about the characters. These things are amply covered in other reviews. My advise is start with "Death Artist" and work your way through the other two books. You will not be disappointed, except perhaps that you will be so sucked into the books and the people who populate them that you won't accomplish much else while reading them. Time very well spent.

Santlofer does it again, with this chilling third installment to his Death Artist series.

Kate is recovering from the death of her husband Richard, re-shaping her life from the life of luxury they shared. She is working on a TV show and a book on the New York School of artists Pollack, de Kooning, Kline and Gorky. Their paintings are being slashed--in a museum, a law office, and in homes.

One of her fiends has a Franz Kline that is slashed in his home, and is killed when he surprises the vandal. Then the murders begin

Jonathan Santlofer has created some fascinating drawings that are the clues in the case, and are reproduced here. His thorough research into the history of these painters is as evident as is his talent for meshing historic characters with fictional artists.

I have now read all of his books. This was the last book in the Kate McKinnon series - and there were only 2 books in the Nate Rodriguez series. I truly hope he writes more. The stories are great - and his drawings add a very unique dimension to them

I actually bought this book because I read a negative review! The reviewer did not like the intellectual, informative, artistic details. Say what? That's what makes Santlofer unique! You GO, Jonathan! I'm an artist, with a degree, but you don't have to be to enjoy this book. This type of book contains a wonderful chunk of education, delivered in a way you will never, ever find anywhere else. And if you like gore, it's definitely in there. I don't usually go for gore, but the twists and details are exactly what I love. I hope the series continues.

Santlofer does it again, with this chilling third instalment to his Death Artist series. In The Killing Art, protagonist Kate McKinnon must re-invent herself in the glamorous art world of New York City. But just as she begins to take comfort in her new existence, she is drawn back to her past as an NYPD Detective and finds herself on the trail of a serial killer.

The thing that I find most fascinating and satisfying about Santlofer's work is the way he incorporates his inside knowledge of the art world into every page. His use of his own paintings as clues is both unique and brilliantly enticing. Before embarking on his career as an author, Santlofer was already a well-known painter. His symbiotic merging of the two art forms creates a product that is addictive to say the least.
