Told in urgent first-person, present tense from Cray's point-of-view, this action packed thriller left me slightly unsettled. Cray is a mess of a man and ping-pongs from one crisis to another with ease, barely escaping with his life in each case. The twists and turns in this novel come non-stop and Cray realizes he can trust no one. It soon becomes apparent that this is an alien invasion and alien virus. Strange and mysterious things happen.The air become turbulent. Lightning strikes and other phenomena. The 'human masks' disguises aliens from humans, and because of this Cray must trust his gut and act on instinct. Cray is a man who acts first and answers questions later. He is a classic, old-school tough guy and full of resolve. Bruce Willis in Diehard. More than once in this novel he is knocked unconscious only to rise from the ashes to defeat a nemesis. I liked that he's a sucker for love too, and North does a find job smattering details of his previous life. The alien element, combined with the apocalyptic scenario, gave it distinct a noir feel similar to Blade Runner.
If you enjoy a well-written book with plenty of action this is the story for you. Intriguing concept as well as a fresh take on the concept of viral contagion. Warring alien groups traveling to earth to complete a mission. Slaves, sex, violence—this has it all! North writes with flair and passion for his character, and certainly knows how to hook a reader. This was a very entertaining read and I highly recommend it.
Beneath the Mask is a very well-written tale of an Army Sergeant on a quest to find his parents and the mission creep that leads him awry in the face of unrelenting enemies and doubtful friends.
The cliffhanger of an ending leaves you craving for more!
I ride the train to and from work everyday, so I am blessed with lots of time to read. I will stick with a book, even if I don't necessarily enjoy it, because I read over 100 books a year and I have the time to slog through something that is not quite my cup of tea. After 200 pages of this book, I just gave up and flipped to the end to see how it turned out. Glad I saved myself 150 pages or so. The author's background should provide very good resource for a fun read - I hope he keeps trying but I wouldn't buy the book based on 5 glowing reviews like this one has. Took a chance - it didn't work out.
