Description

The faceless are Paul Bern's business. As a forensic artist in Austin, Texas, Paul painstakingly reconstructs the likenesses of unfortunate souls whose features have been obliterated by crime or accident. As macabre as his vocation may be, it has become a comfortable and lucrative routine - until the day a mysterious woman arrives at his studio. The visitor brings two gifts. The first is a human skull she has smuggled out of Mexico. The second is a staggering secret that brings him eyeball to eyeball with a past he never knew he had.

Suddenly, Paul's own government blackmails him into cooperating in a clandestine mission against a Middle Eastern terrorist group that has made the drug jungles of South America its staging ground. By using his own face as bait to lure the enemy, he will become all too intimate with the underworld of violence that he seeks to destroy, while thousands of lives hang in the balance of his intricate and dangerous deception.

  • (3/5)
    A bit tedious at times (I don't need to know every street the main character travelled, nor do I need a description of every house or what her partner was wearing) this book definitely had some cringe worthy moments. Incest, S&M, revenge.. Not for the faint of heart.

    In The Face of the Assassin, forensic sculptor Paul Bern works on reconstructing a face that is brought to him under unusual circumstances. This begins the process of Bern immersing himself in the world of espionage and terrorism. He impersonates his twin brother, a CIA agent who had recently been killed, and goes into the underworld of Mexico City on a mission to capture the world’s most dangerous terrorist. He has to go through Mexican gangsters in the process, including a man with his face torn off.This is a novel that is loaded with action and a strong plot. There is intrigue throughout and a number of twists and turns, especially at the end of the novel. David Lindsey shows exceptional skill as a writer and knows how to keep the reader engaged in the novel. I would strongly recommend this action thriller.Carl Alves – author of Blood Street
