    In EVIL IN ALL ITS DISGUISES, Hilary Davidson demonstrates yet again she's the master of the Hitchcockian thriller. As in her prior stellar outings, this novel is informed by a gorgeous sense of place -- in this case, the fictitious and decidedly creepy Hotel Cerón. Its faded opulence, armed guards, and empty hallways serve as a funhouse reflection of the Acapulco of old. Once Hollywood's playground, it's long been passed over by international tourists on account of rampant crime and endemic corruption. Which makes travel-writer Lily Moore's swanky all-expenses-paid press junket seem suspicious, to say the least.

    Someone should have told her if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. But then, she had no idea how many lives would be put at risk by her seemingly innocuous desire for a little sun and sand.

    Davidson sets an uneasy tone early, and ratchets up the tension in the ensuing pages until it's almost too much to take. She uses the vulnerability of international travelers to great effect, and her ability to conjure claustrophobia from so seemingly luxurious a setting is nothing short of masterful. Add to that an engrossing, emotionally resonant mystery and no small measure of catharsis for Lily and the supporting cast we've come to love these past three books, and it's no wonder this series is one of the most buzzed-about in all of crime-fic.
