Every Sunday I feature a title from an often overlooked genre: Suspense!These are books I’ve read and highly recommend to anyone that loves agood mystery or crime story, sometimes with a little humor thrown in!
Today’s feature title is: City of Masks (A Cree Black Novel) by Daniel Hecht
Synopsis: In City of Masks, the first Cree Black novel, parapsychologist Cree and her partner take a case in New Orleans’s Garden District that leaves them fearing for their own lives. The 150-year-old Beauforte House has long stood empty, until Lila Beauforte resumes residence and starts to see some of the house’s secrets literally come to life. Tormented by an insidious and violent presence, Lila finds herself trapped in a life increasingly filled with childhood terrors. It takes Cree’s unconventional take on psychology and her powerful natural empathy with Lila to navigate the dangerous worlds of spirit and memory, as they clash in a terrifying tale of mistaken identity and murder.
This is the first novel in a wonderful series featuring Cree Black, a supernatural empath. Intelligently written and brimming with great characterization and suspense, it will appeal to fans of urban fantasy and suspense alike! There are two more novels in the series, Land of Echos and Bones of the Barbary Coast, which are both just terrific! I dare you to read City of Masks and not get hooked!
