Savage Art by Danielle Girard

Death was his art. She would be his masterpiece. They called him Leonardo-a master skilled in the art of murder. One year ago, Cincinnati was his canvas. A scalpel was his tool. And women were his works-in-progress. FBI profiler Casey McKinley was one of them, a victim of Leonardo's twisted genius. She has the scars-and the nightmares-to prove it. For Casey, a new city means a life far from the one she left behind in Cincinnati. In San Francisco she finally feels safe. Until a series of eerily familiar slayings plunges her back into Leonardo's game. Now she must catch this clever killer before he can unveil his ultimate masterpiece. Only this time she'll play by a different set of rules-hers.

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.

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.

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.

This may not be for the faint of heart. Ms. Girard writes very well, and this has a plot that is criminal suspense to the nth degree. The protagonist is a very strong woman who has to face her fears from the past. She does this and I was impressed. Kept me reading when I should have done something else. Very worthwhile.

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.

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.
