Description

"Santlofer's fluid, almost poetic, writing, coupled with his extraordinary artwork, places him at the forefront of cutting-edge crime fiction."
-Chicago Tribune


Jonathan Santlofer has brilliantly reinvented the crime novel, and he returns with his most gripping and astonishing suspense novel to date: The Murder Notebook. An acclaimed visual artist whose numerous awards include two National Endowment for the Arts painting grants-and whose work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Art in America, and Artforum, among other publications-Santlofer combines gripping tales of murder and detection with stunning artwork that enhances and is integral to the story. In The Murder Notebook he brings back NYPD forensic sketch artist Nate Rodriguez, hero of Santlofer's critically acclaimed thriller Anatomy of Fear, to unravel a gruesomely tangled thread of apparent murder-suicides in New York City.

Back cover copy

Brilliantly blending his extraordinary talents, world-renowned artist and critically acclaimed crime novelist Jonathan Santlofer offers a unique amalgam of invention and terror.

The story begins with the skull of a slaughtered "John Doe," burned beyond recognition. More bodies turn up--the corpses of victims . . . and their killers. NYPD forensic sketch artist Nate Rodriguez is certain a common thread connects the gruesome wave of apparent murder-suicides, but, plagued by the mystery of his father's death years ago, he must quiet his personal demons as he searches the shadows for answers--and uncovers a nightmare.
