    1. Body parts of a murder victim being showing up in the lifelike sculptures of artist Dane Blackmoor. Best-selling true crime author, Garner Quinn, thinks she knows the killer after all, they have a shared past. A past, that she would like to forget.Dane Blackmoor is being investigated and accused to dismembering women and hiding their body parts inside the sculptures that he is so well known for.She's just coming off another investigation for another of her books and instead of being able to spe [...]

    2. This was a random find from Brash publishers. Sounded intriguing enough and it actually was. Garner Quinn, the best selling crime writer, finds herself to be front and center in her latest story with entirely too many men of questionable motives and equally questionable trustworthiness surrounding her. Solid read, well written, didn't wow me in any way (maybe not enough of an emotional connection, although the dramatic aspect of the story was done very nicely), but thoroughly entertaining with a [...]

    3. I've commented before about how much I love Brash Books and its mission to "publish the best crime novels in existence." With the publication of Jane Waterhouse's Garner Quinn trilogy, beginning with Graven Images, Brash Books has exceeded (if that's possible) that lofty goal.Garner Quinn is a female true-crime author. I have wracked my brain for another crime series featuring a true-crime writer, rather than the ubiquitous current or former cop or serviceman/private detective/thriller writer (n [...]

    4. So, the blurb for this book had an intriguing premise. A serial killer hiding body parts in his sculptures. This actually turns out to be not a very big part of the story. We open up with Garner, the heroine, researching her latest true crime novel featuring Jeff, a young man who carves crosses into his victims. When Jeff is found not guilty, Garner goes back home and gets involved with the story of Dane Blackmoor, a sculptor, with whom Garner shares a past.Much of the book is then told in flash [...]

    5. This book sucks you into the plot. This is an author writing about an author, a bestselling crime writer. In so doing her attendance at the criminal trials involve her in an indirect way as she interviews the defendant and the witnesses. Having had somewhat of a rough childhood and facing some heinous crime scenarios her emotional being is jaded. It also gives her a sharp instinct regarding peoples’ characters and a dose of self-doubt. Eventually she goes from hunter of facts to being the hunt [...]

    6. This is an outstanding story with action taking place on many levels. It combines a mystery thriller with intense psychological development, several character studies and a little romance. Garner Quinn, a true crimes author, is the protagonist, but several other characters are treated in depth and add to the entertainment value of the book. Garner's father is a famous lawyer with no time for her. She suspects a famous artist is her real father at one point. She has her own daughter who feels lef [...]

    7. Fabulous writing, a flawed protagonist and a complex weaving of plot linest certain I completely understand Garner Quinn, who writes true crime novels by imbedding herself in the lives of her characters and then becomes a target, but Waterhouse has a unique voice for this character. I would read more of her work.

    8. The case There was one themes many cases in this book. It left me with more questions than answers. And wanted to know more about the missing Mother and what reasons she had for leaving her child with a father that seemed to be incapable of love,,, hmmmm.17+

    9. Although I thought I would really enjoy this book, having liked DEAD LETTER, I didn't find it as readable, and part of the plot was a little too far-fetched for me.

    10. I enjoyed this book until about 2/3 of the way through, when the characters and plot became increasingly unbelievable.
