Eight notable crime novels set in the art world

Lisa Levy is a columnist and contributing editor at LitHub and CrimeReads.

At CrimeReads she tagged eight top crime novels set in the art world, including:
Ashley Dyer, The Cutting Room (Morrow)

Cutting Room is the second outing for the writing duo known as Ashley Dyer and the second book to feature Detectives Ruth Lake and Greg Carver. Dyer is partial to writing about serial killers with ingenious methods of both murder and manipulation of the media. In Cutting the serial killer, known as the Ferryman, has staged his murders down to the last detail, and is quickly rewarded for circulating photos of them by gaining a massive Instagram following (yes, between goat memes and vacation photos you could have a chilling crime scene in your feed). As the Ferryman becomes Britain’s true crime sensation, Carver and Lake try to use his social media footprint to stop him.
