Read an Excerpt

As she waited at the crosswalk two blocks west of her hotel, the familiar sound of a diesel engine welled behind her. Paige spun around, crashing into a dark suited gentleman with a cell phone to one ear. The phone clattered to the sidewalk and broke in dozens of pieces. She muttered an apology as a bright yellow tractor-trailer bore down on the intersection. Paige stepped off the sidewalk and into the street.

The semi screamed to a stop not two inches from her left shoulder. Immediately horns began honking. Paige, who'd frozen at the sight of the bright chrome grill in her face, felt herself being wrapped in strong arms and dragged onto the sidewalk.

She knew she was sobbing but couldn't hear the sound of it over the horns and the shouting. She melted against the plaid cotton shirt. The arms tightened. His head bent against hers.

"Chris."

His lips brushed her left ear. "I've looked everywhere for you."

A loud pop. Then another. Something screeched past her ear. Paige was suddenly heaved sideways. Her elbow jolted up into her shoulder as she slammed to the sidewalk. More gunshots rang out. Something heavy landed on top of her, punching the air from her lungs.

Vividly rendered, with evocative and eclectic settings, Final Masquerade is freshly characterised and lively paced, with a truly despicable bad guy you'll just love to hate.

In a tale easily rivaling any Hollywood screenplay Cindy Davis does not disappoint. After witnessing a mafia murder Paige is an everyday woman suddenly on the run and fighting for her life. Breathtaking with everyturn of the page I recommend this book to every mystery lover
