"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

A group of adventure-seeking women go to a remote mountain cabin for a cross-country skiing trip. Greeting them is the caretaker/handyman, young, cute, and a complete loner who loves living away from people and deep in nature. Curt lives in a one-room shack nearby. The skiing is an adventure by itself, but the trip is marred by the arrival of Curt's identical twin brother Conrad. Conrad was born to be bad. He's on parole but wants to escape and start fresh. He catfishes women on the internet, convincing them that he is everything they've ever wanted in a man, while still serving his latest prison sentence.
Conrad heads to the mountain, making Curt a prisoner in his shack, without food, water, or bathroom privileges, keeping him docile with ketamine. Conrad takes on the persona of Curt. Conrad plans to commit several crimes and lead the police to the only other person who shares his DNA, his twin. Yes, Curt will take the fall for Conrad's misdeeds. The women who do not suffer from face blindness only see one man, whom they call Curt. Jessica, the one with prosopagnosia, sees immediately that they are two different men. She approaches Conrad asking if he is Curt's twin. Conrad now knows that he master plan is in jeopardy. Jessica KNOWS!
To say more about the plot would be to give away too much, but the character development and plot threads are beautifully worked out. I enjoyed this book much more than the first in the series. I will definitely continue to follow the FACES series. I congratulate the author on a terrific job.
At this point, I expected the book to become a horror-psycho slasher book, and I was very happy to see that it did not take the obvious path. Instead, we are taken into the points of view of three of the women and both men as the suspense slowly builds. Even better, as the readers, we're taken to that cabin in the snow-smothered woods, where everything is described in vivid prose and mind-boggling clarity. Wrap up in a warm blanket as you read this chilling story of strength and survival.
This book is definitely not your typical psychological suspense pulp! I read it in a day, which left me little time for anything else. I just couldn't pull myself away from it! Beautifully written, the plot is tight, and the character development is perfect. I'd recommend this book to anyone who enjoys well-written, suspenseful and thought-provoking thrillers. I will definitely look forward to reading another book by this author.
I agreed to write a fair and unbiased review of this book in exchange for winning it through a LibraryThing giveaway. I have never met the author. The glowing review I've given it is solely due to the merits of the book.
