Overview

Christian Greve was a man on a collision course with destiny. He spent his days taking graduation pictures, glamour shots, and baby pictures, and dreaming of the day when the world would praise him for his talent. Christian was an artist, but there was one problem:

All of the models he's ever photographed have worked against him. They changed his careful poses. They tilted their head to ruin the source of lighting, or twisted their features slightly. He knew it was their fault, because the visions in his head-the images he intended-were pristine and perfect, down to the tiniest detail. He'd learned makeup the hard way from an abusive, chemically addicted mother who turned tricks and made him part of the show, and he knew he was in the right here.

Now he's found another way to perfect his art-and a new partner in agent/entrepreneur Hiram Gates.

When a string of dead models, their makeup eerie and beautiful, start turning up, Tommy Doyle and his partner "Big Mac" Markum are called in. Doyle has spent most of his life chasing down psychos. He has a reputation for hating the press, and an innate ability to enter the darker side of the city and bring the crazies to justice. Can he stop this new, apparently motive-less string of killings before the body count rises too high for his own sanity?

This is a San Valencez Mystery, set in David Niall Wilson's fictional city of San Valencez, California-a place just left of reality, where nothing is ever quite as it seems. Look for other novels set in San Valencez, including the successful dark fantasy series The DeChance Chronicles and the supernatural thrillers Deep Blue, On The Third Day, and Ancient Eyes.

This is also the first full-length Tommy Doyle novel, following the success of his debut in the novelette "Burning Bridges," published in the anthology All Hell Breaking Loose.
