Really a great read, from an writer that is consistantly first rate. The Mexico City setting for part of the book is fantastic, you can feel the city close in. Lindsey really gets Mexico City and through his writing skills and gift for great imagery, the city comes alive. The story is fast paced and riviting.

Helpful Score: 1
Paul Bern is a forensic artist: that is, he reconstructs the missing, damaged features of people whose faces were disfigured by the events which killed them. At work on a new skull, he sees that the face he's creating is shockingly similar to his own. It turns out that the adopted Paul had a twin, a CIA agent who was murdered. And naturally, the government wants Paul to take over where his brother left off....
A superb thriller by David Lindsey.
