Description

Hector Lassiter is a crime novelist who writes what he lives and lives what he writes, frequently forcing those around him into the tawdry and turbulent territory of his novels. In Toros & Torsos, Hector meets his match in the person of a mysterious killer committed to the craft of murder: a provocateur who leaves a string of increasingly macabre, homicidal tableaus modeled after seminal works of surrealist art. This wildly original noir saga pits Lassiter against the ultimate performance artist in a duel to the death extending across three decades and three continents and ends in a wicked and unexpected climax that shakes the art world to its foundations. Life imitating art... art imitating death, and for some, it isn't truly art until somebody dies. "Nothing short of a surrealistic masterwork." -Chicago Tribune
