The Stiletto Killer.

I was deep in the edits for the sixth Mak Vanderwall novel, Assassin, when a striking image by Lithuanian artist Natalie Shau stopped me dead. (So to speak.) This nightmarishly beautiful piece, with its severed foot and heeled shoe, brings to mind the fetishistic murders of the Stiletto Killer of my first three novels, albeit with a Tim Burton-esque dash of humour. What would Mak make of it, I wonder…?
