Three murdered plastic surgeons, millions of dollars' worth of stolen paintings, and a deranged killer with ties to the Ku Klux Klan are the main ingredients in Tattoo, a mystery spiced with medical settings and featuring a doctor in the lead role.

Gareth Lloyd is a 40-year-old plastic surgeon in California with an Alfa Romeo convertible, alimony, and child support payments, a fondness for antiques and pottery, and a recently ended affair with the wife of a colleague who has just been murdered. His luck could hardly get much worse as Lloyd turns from murder suspect to murder target.
