Description:

Zelda is the silent partner in the clandestine organization known as The Associates. Liza is Zelda’s twin who got involved with a drug lord and was gambled away to another drug lord. Zelda agrees to take her twin’s place and is flown to the jungles of South America. Can she maintain her hidden identity long enough to get some information for her company’s current operation?

Hugo and Paolo appear to the locals as an American gentleman farmer and his son. But Hugo has a secret past and he is on a mission when he saves Zelda from some very bad guys and brings her to his home to be his cook and teacher for Paolo. Can he maintain his secrets as he becomes more enamored of his captive?

**

As with all the books in The Associates series we are thrust into the action with an adrenaline rush and it does not let go until hours after we close the last page. This is a dark and supremely satisfying book. There is violence and torture so be prepared but this will not deter the reader as the pages are flipped rapidly to find out what will happen next. There is little more satisfying then reading an author who knows how to write a story line and plot and keeps us on the edge of our seats throughout the book. Carolyn Crane is this kind of author. BEHIND THE MASK is this kind of book.

Yes, there is romance amid the mayhem. Zelda and Hugo do not want to fall in love but they are the yin and yang to each other and it is inevitable. Zelda fills the empty place in Hugo’s heart and Zelda has been falling in love with this killer since she first saw his blurry photo years ago while trying to capture him and failing. But we readers can’t help but think their love is doomed from the start.

I highly recommend this thriller to all romance fans who like their novels dark, rough and gritty. It doesn’t get any better than this.
