Special Agent Smoky Barrett is once again needed for what mightbecome her toughest match yet. The police have a situation. Sixteen-year old, Sarah Kingsley has a gun to her head. She tells the police that she will shoot unless she talks to Smoky. Smoky listens to what Sarah has to say. Sarah tells Smoky that a man known as "The Stranger" has been following her all her life. He has killed everyone dear to Sarah.
Smoky is ready to bring down "The Stranger" no matter what it takes. Smoky guarantees she will come on top. Is Sarah just a pawn in "The Stranger's" sick game or is Sarah on the side of evil?
The Face of Death is the second book that features Smoky Barrett. I really enjoyed this book. The characters were great and they had wonderful dimensions, which is hard to find in books. Smoky Barrett can take on the worse of the serial killers. In fact they should be afraid of Smoky. Not to say Shadow Man wasn't good too but I have to say I liked The Face of Death a little more. I think the reason was because I had got to know Smoky and was rooting for her to come on top again. Plus the ending was a huge surprise! I love when the endings are not what I expected. I can't wait to read The Darker Side, which I know will be just as good as Mr. McFadyen's other two books.
I hope you found my review insightful and will check out Mr. McFadyen's books. In fact to help get one lucky reader started I will give away a copy of The Face of Death.
