When the whispers in the night, the whispers of her lover, are the whispers of a
killer, will Margot escape before she becomes the next victim?
Deep in the foothills of Red Rock Canyon, a serial killer stalks. He leaves his signature—a
skull mask on the corpse. But when the homicide cop realizes the crimes are the reenactment
of a case never solved ten years ago--all fingers point to Michael DeVeccio. And
when Margot realizes she is married to the killer, her life becomes a living nightmare.
I have to confess: in the course of reviewing several of her works, I’ve become a
Sharon Ann Donovan fan. In ‘Mask of the Betrayer’ she’s brought us another heart-stopping
blend of suspense, anxiety, love and hope. The magic in her stories is that the affairs
of the heart never take a backseat to the thrills: Even while you are reading, white-knuckled,
hoping just for survival – feeling the approaching presence of the evil hunter, perhaps
imagining him outside your own window – you are still madly hoping the two will somehow
recognize their feelings for one another. We so want them to be happy!
Descriptions are powerful – and the frightening ones, no less so.
Intriguingly, or perhaps just creepy, is the close-up understanding we gradually
gain into the serial killer himself, ‘The Hunter.’ His dark mind is something of
a psychological study, and the scenes that allow us to gain understanding just add
to our fear level!
For all of the character depth, plot twists and intriguing lifestyles, this story
remains fast-paced throughout. You will simply not want to stop turning the pages:
There’s more to it than just suspense, just mystery, or just romance; but all those
layers of meaning and suggestions are so cleverly imparted that the story never slows
