The Mask by Tayor Stephens
Some people like their novels rough. They seem to like these books hard hitting and gross. They seem to like strong female protagonists. You have it here.
This is the sixth in the Vanessa Michael Munroe Novel series and it tends to be more of the same. If you like tame, this is not the series for you. Yet if you like your suspense fiction fast paced, this may be the one for you.
This episode takes place in Japan. Munroe has time now to spend time with her lover Miles Bradford. When all of a sudden Miles is arrested for a murder that may have been self defense Munroe has to discover the facts and free him. She faces opposition.
The deeper she goes to discover the facts, the more danger she finds herself in.
In this genre there are cozies, suspense, thrillers and hard boiled. If you are a connoisseur of cozies, this is not the book for you.
Stevens does a good job of pulling you in. She presents a solid character in Monroe, a female who makes things happen. Not a pushover. Not someone you would like to get on the bad side of.
This series is for adults. It could also be enjoyed by arm chair thrill seekers. We all to a certain extent like these types of novels so we can play the game with the author as to who done it and why.
This book was sent to me gratis from the publisher as part of the review program of blogging for books.com. I was not required to give a positive review. Any views expressed are those of the reviewer and not those of the publisher.
