Anatomy of Fear

David Montgomery of Crime Fiction Dossier draws attention to a review of Anatomy of Fear by Jonathan Santlofer: Drawing Out the Thriller Genre – washingtonpost.com. From the review:

But what makes "Anatomy of Fear" distinctive is that Santlofer, a well-known artist before he turned to fiction, has illustrated the book with well over a hundred drawings that add an intriguing new dimension to his story. The pencil sketches, some with touches of blood red, show victims, suspects, crime scenes and clues. Some no larger than a postage stamp, others filling an entire page, these drawings illustrate the novel and become central to it, because both its hero and its villain are themselves artists caught up in a deadly duel.

I’m not sure if the book is quite my cup of tea, but David recommends it, so it might well be worth checking out.
