From a writing standpoint "Stealing Faces" is crisp and reads quickly. A definite plus in this form of novel. The major players of the story are deftly crafted. Poor Elizabeth Palmer, a.k.a. Ellen Pendleton , a.k.a. Paula Nielson, but in reality Kaylie McMillan has been on the run for the better part of twelve years. She is of the opinion that Dr. John Cray is the unstoppable White Mountain Killer. She's absolutely correct, of course. She's also the murderess of her husband Justin McMillan. What Cray does as the White Mountain Killer is rather obvious from the book's title.
Kaylie and Cray play a lot of physical tag in the first portion of the novel. Each trying to remain one step ahead of the other. They spend the second half of the novel playing mental tag. Kaylie and Cray encounter several other interesting people in the course of the story. Namely, Tucson Detective Roy Shepherd and Kaylie's ex-father-in-law Anson McMillan.
My only ever so MINUSCULE complaint is that they really weren't given any more to do but play hide and seek with one another. To go any further into what precisely goes on would be to give away too many spoilers in this well written novel. It's just that things become a bit formulaic towards the end. Cray makes a mistake or two that seem out of character for someone who throughout the rest of the story takes great pride in his meticulousness.
This still does not take away from the fact that there are some clever twists and turns in this story. A fast read that I think many people will find very enjoyable.
Such is the plight of Kaylie McMillan (Elizabeth Palmer, etc.) in this suspenseful second effort from Michael Prescott.
As in "Comes the Dark," this is a gripping, suspenseful thriller. John Cray is a nasty, irreprehensible villain, smooth and relentlessly evil. Again, Prescott delves into Cray's youth to show us the reason, but again, not the justification, for his actions.
The physical and psychological "hunt" between Kaylie and Cray is tense, and frustrating, as Kaylie appears to be losing the match, and Dr. Cray may finally get his revenge.
A stunning book in many ways, it will keep you riveted. The supporting characters, as in Prescott's first novel, are very interesting, even if the hero (Roy Shepherd) and Kaylie are very similar thematically to the two heroes in "Comes the Dark."
But, this is a minor complaint---just read it and be enthralled!
