A young actress awakens in an underground cell. Her mouth is taped shut, her limbs strapped to a rickety wooden chair. A booming voice from some unseen speaker ricochets around the dark space, announcing that a timer has been started. Precisely fifteen minutes later, a bullet rips through her head.

And so begins the story of The Artist.

Footage of the murder is sent to the

I have no idea what it was that inspired me to get this book, probably a recommendation on Amazon, but there don’t seem to have been many people that have read / reviewed it!

A young actress regains consciousness in a basement in London. The room she is in is dirty and bare, apart from a mirror on the wall opposite her. She is tightly tied to the chair she is sitting on. A voice over a loudspeaker informs her that she has 15 minutes to live, and that she’d better make the most of it.

Troubled four

A well-written murder-mystery, but this book isn't just another "whodunnit". It is also a social drama which examines many issues - from family units, relationships and dynamics, to our obsession with fame and the media.
Kaylin, our protagonist, is a fourteen year old girl from a broken home whose mother is waiting for her big "acting break". Her mother's obsession with celebrity and wealth (which she is convinced is just around the corner) causes mood-swings, childish behaviour and a severe lack

From the very beginning I couldn't stop reading this thriller. It only took me about two and half days to finish it. I was kind of surprised at the ending although I guessed part of it. (; maybe not the very ending but I thought it out pretty well. Anyways I liked how the book went from one perspective to another, it maybe me like the characters a lot more than I would have if it was just in Kaylin's perspective. Also the killer "Andy the Artist" was genius and very thought though! Oh and I ...more

Saturday afternoon, I started reading The Artist by Angelo Marcos. Sunday afternoon, I finished it. Murder, mystery and intrigue but not a Policeman on the page, this story is told from the points of view of the victims and the murderer. And I don't know if it's because this novel is outside of my usual reading comfort zone, but I certainly didn't see that ending coming... Well done to the author. Highly recommended - a really enjoyable read x

A great debut novel that is an easy read but compelling from start to finish. A Well paced thriller with good characterisation and a plot that keeps you guessing right to the end. I will definitely read Angelo Marcos
again.

Great story with a GREAT twist at the end. Only, I was able to predict what was happening about 2/3 through the book. It was a little slow going in the story for the first half. Really did not get to the good stuff until the second half. It was worth the read.
