    This novel is terrifying and deserves attention!

    Savage Art, savagely and artfully rendered by Danielle Girard, furthers the state of the art made visible by James Patterson and, of course, Thomas Harris. Only these guys should read Girard -- she adds the element of irony and wit, and her characters are more accessible than their more famous counterparts. Move over boys, Danielle is on the scene... be afraid, be VERY afraid.

    HANNIBAL watchers have to read this great serial killer book

    He feels he is the modern day Leonardo da Vinci except he uses a scalpel to make his creations on a special model, the human body. He uses street people as his personal source of stone. FBI profiler Casey McKinley has a perfect record of solving a case within three months of receipt. She travels to Cleveland to assist local authorities¿ efforts to bring this monstrous sculptor to justice. However, this time things go wrong and he captures Casey. He breaks the bones in her hands before fleeing to avoid apprehension.<P> One year after the assault, Casey remains traumatized to the point of near paralysis. She remains in bed and refuses to work on her physical therapy. She sends her husband and daughter away because she needs to stay away from people, even her loved ones. However, Leonardo has not forgotten the one victim whose sculpting remains unfinished. He intends to complete his latest masterpiece using Casey¿s daughter as his material.<P> Danielle Girard¿s first novel, SAVAGE ART, is a thriller that rivals the best of Illes, Pollinger, or Goldberg. The fiendish villain acts similar to Hannibal Lechter, leaving those with a squeamish stomach wanting to skip some of the more graphic sections. The heroine is a fascinating character who will remind the audience of Crais¿ Demolition Angel due to her vulnerability and inner strength. This serial killer tale is so good fans will want sequels.<P> Harriet Klausner

    Very good suspense novel

    The villain in this book is unique, almost invulnerable, with really disgusting habits. One of his victims, a survivor, is an FBI agent who was trying to capture him, but is now struggling to recover from what he was able to do to her. And, he is still trying to kill her!

    The cast of characters is almost an affirmative action group - a woman, an African American, and a gay man. But, all are sympathetic characters easy to identify with. Well worth reading just to spend the time with them.
