Superb...A thoroughly satisfying, disturbing novel. -Cleveland Plain Dealer 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. Daniel Hecht is the author of two previous novels, Skull Session and The Babel Effect. His most recent novel is Land of Echoes, second in the Cree Black series. A BookSense 76 pick in hardcover "Sharp, fast, and deft, a gripping story that with the skill of a Wallenda walks the tightrope between the real and the supernatural." -Kirkus Reviews "A gripping and fully realized mystery set in an unfamiliar world that the author makes palpable...creating characters that go far beyond the cookie-cutter." -Denver Post "A ghost story readers won't soon forget...You are taken on the ride of your literary life." -Tulsa World
