Dead Sleep by Greg Iles
When photojournalist Jordan Glass chances upon a painting which is part of an exhibition entitled 'Nude Women in Repose' by an unknown artist in the Hong Tsin museum in Hong Kong, she gets a rude shock. The face of the woman in the painting is that of Jordan's twin sister, Jane, who vanished without trace from her home in New Orleans thirteen months before. Eleven women altogether have disappeared - and the other paintings in the exhibition are of those missing women. Jordan teams up with world-renowned forensic psychologist, Dr Arthur Lenz, and FBI special agent, John Kaiser to track down the artist and get to the bottom of the mystery. But there are many curious twists and unpleasant surprises in store before the shocking truth is finally revealed.
