THE DEADLIEST ART by Norman Bogner
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: July 1, 2001

"The vulgarity springs from Bogner's overblown sexual detail wrapped up in implausible dialogue. Some will be put off early on. Others will be in for a surprise that's stunning enough to justify earlier excess."
Sequel to Bogner's ghoulish serial-killer special, To Die in Provence (1998). Read full book review >

Plotboiler Bogner's tenth novel (Honor Thy Wife, 1999, etc.) is actually a rewrite of a sex-and-shopping tale he published some 30 years ago, now "totally rewritten for the 21st century . . . and 25% shorter." Read full book review >
