Who is the man behind the mask? When everything is taken from him, Detective Adam White must choose what's most important. Does he stick to the heroic ideals which made him a famed paragon of justice and take down a murderous madman?
Or does he give in to his vigilante impulses, avenge his wife's murder, and become the type of killer he's hunted for so many years?Wow, let me tell you, this book was packed with a lot of action that started on the first page all the way to the last paragraph! I never knew what was going to happen next. I tried to figure it out and then it would be something totally different than what I thought it would be.
I can tell you that the excerpt that I just wrote that is really the one on the back of the book, is totally misleading. There is so much in between those lines and what really happens that it will shock you silly!
This is a story about 3 completely different men but they all have one thing in common and that is that someone murdered a person that each man loved. In the case of the "real" masked man, it was 2 people, one a woman who he fell in love with while fighting in Iraq and she was killed by her own people for seeing an American soldier and the other person that the masked man loved was his father.
The other two men, one who is a homicide cop, lost their wives to men who are pure evil and don't care about anyone or anything except for what's in it for them. The man behind all the evil things is trying to buy up all the land in this one town where all three of these men live and if you don't cooperate, then he sends his enforcers out to make sure you change your mind.
This story has a lot of twists and plots I did not see coming about who is real and who isn't and which man thinks he is talking to real people when actually he is talking to their ghosts or he is hallucinating. Then comes the final shocker as to how each man comes into a power that once a deal is made, it can't be broken or your worst fears will come true.
Or maybe not. This "shocker" might be good or evil, the book leaves it to you to decide. I am still trying to figure it out myself so don't ask me because I am still scratching my head on this one.
