Fast-forward more than thirty years: A suspected prostitute is found murdered in a candlelit motel room, the first in a series of horrors suggesting Hexcamp's art remains alive and treacherous. Following a trail of beautiful - and profoundly disturbing - artwork, homicide detectives Carson Ryder and Harry Nautilus descend into the shocking world of the Death Collectors, people who spend vast sums to collect serial-killer memorabilia. As Ryder and Nautilus race to solve a thirty-year conspiracy, it becomes sadly evident that at the intersection of art and madness, death is beauty, tragedy a memento, and suffering suitable for framing.

The Death Collectors by Jack Kerley is a very tedious whodunit. It is a story of sociopathic serial killers and those who collect the macabre memorabilia that they produce. I had to pinch myself often to stay awake as I listened to it. The characters were uninteresting and the plot was dull.
