Publisher Description

Twelve shocking paintings. Eleven famous murders. One missing artist . . .



A Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine Selection



Kim Lord's groundbreaking new exhibition, Still Lives, features portraits in which she depicts herself as famous murdered women, and the works are as compelling as they are disturbing, implicating a culture that is too accustomed to violence against women. When Lord never shows up to her own gala, editor Maggie Richter gets drawn into her own investigation of Lord's disappearance, fearful that the artist might have met the same fate as the women in her paintings.

Interesting ideas but...

Too much filler and flowery language, so there’s too much time between the interesting parts. I found myself skipping whole paragraphs because of unnecessary descriptions of scenery and metaphors. While the concepts behind the book are intriguing, it ended up just being OK.

My favorite book of 2018

I read.. a lot. I couldn’t put this story down, even reading as I walked the dog. Hummel has managed to combine my favorite subject, the bizarro world of contemporary art, with my favorite genre. This mystery is as compelling and literate as The Goldfinch.
Besides feeling a little smug about having seen all the non fictional art in the book, the characters all had spectacularly different voice and appearance. Now I need to read her other books and hope she is working on a couple new ones right now.
