When everyone wears a masque, anyone could be a killer
In a future where everyone wears a masque, no one needs a phone, a credit card, or any ID. The masque itself is everything to everyone.
But as exquisite as a masque might be, it can't keep you safe. Nothing can. Nothing will.
And when everyone wears a masque, anyone could be a killer.
Now it's up to Chief Inspector McNair and his team of dedicated experts to find that killer. They must uncover the secrets and lies that dwell inside every beautiful masque. And they'll stop at nothing until they find the truth—no matter how ugly it turns out to be.

I really loved this book. It was a mix of sci-fi, psychological thriller, suspense, and police procedural mystery. They different aspects wound around each other very nicely, with none really outshining the others overall. It did take a few pages longer to completely get into the story though. There are lots of characters from the get-go, and the technology of the masques and their various add-ons was something you started to understand as you went through the story instead of right away. I found the whole concept of the masques fascinating. Changing who you were on a whim and a few credits (if you had them). Masques were a way to set apart the rich from the poor, the Legacies from the Unders. The ultimate status symbol - and a key piece of evidence in the murder of a high-profile tech company owner. The investigation leads you into a mix of stories including a divorced police detective, twin masque designers, and Legacies that feel they are above the very law itself. There's even a side story that's a touch of romance with a paranormal-ish element. I'd really like to see more of where that one went. The mystery remained unsolved until that one key piece of evidence was finally found - and I really liked it that way. I was guessing right along with the detective, and I followed every single one of his thoughts and swore he'd figured it out - until things changed. A great story that I think many will fall in love with. **I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book**
