ISBN 10: 0684851326, ISBN 13: 9780684851327. THE WAR ARTIST Charles Monk is an artist obsessed by war. He is both appalled and fascinated by its extremes and it is only during wartime that he feels truly alive. As he travels from war zone to war zone, he is consumed by the eroticism of his experiences as he desperately tries to capture them on canvas. But it is his love for Miriam, the stunningly beautiful wife of his best friend - the son of a massively wealthy shipping magnate - that proves to be his most dangerous challenge.

Voice actor, singer and music composer from Edinburgh, Scotland.

Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Kelly fantastically recreates the claustrophobic mood of England under siege with period details. In what I think might be the beginning of a mystery series, Kelly introduces the reader to a small village near Winchester, England, in 1940, where an old man has been found brutally murdered. Cleveland Plain Dealer. A fine-grained first novel.

A novel exploring the psycho-sexual compulsion of an artist obsessed by war. It tells the story of Charles Monk who only feels truly alive during wartime, finding in it an eroticism which he tries to recapture on canvas. The author is the editor of the on-line magazine THE RICHMOND REVIEW.
