"The Sculptor" by Gregory Funaro is an ‘I can’t put it down…’ serial killer page-turner book. It is filled with all of the elements that would make it a good thriller movie. It has romance, terror, twisted relationships, art history and a bit of science.

A fanatic and psychopathic serial killer is inspired by Brown University Art History Professor Cathy Hildebrant’s book on Michelangelo. In the killers own demented way he makes mental connections to his own fantasies, desires and obsessions and creates his own art. Funero weaves in information about the methods used by the sculptor to create his art but it isn’t overdone and provides a much needed break in the face paced action of the novel.

The book is fairly graphic and contains descriptions of sexual satisfaction using strong language and describing very twisted relationships. A developing friendship between the FBI Special Investigator and the Professor add tension and personal connections in the story. The ending of the story may allow for sequels in the future.
I highly recommend this book for those who like thrillers and don’t mind a bit of the macabre.

Susan Sounds like a good read, but maybe not for those who take offense at graphic violent and sexual descriptions. Warped person that I am, I'll give it a try. ;-)
