Amnesiac Liz Sanborough lives with Gordon. He tells her she is a retired CIA agent who lost her memory in a fall and that they are lovers. Liz believes him, but niggling memories dont jibe with his story.

A surprise raid on their apartment sends them scurrying to a Colorado CIA camp where Liz trains intensively. As more memory returns, she realizes her identity is questionable, and that someone is out to destroy her.

Liz embarks on an adventure with Asher Flores, a renegade agent, that hurls them from Colorado to Oklahoma, to Parish, with ramifications that resound round the world.

MASQUERADE is a dynamite tale with enough twists and secrets to leave you gasping. The reader, like Liz, doesnt know who to trust or what will happen next, making the book sheer fun. Enjoy! (On the shelf, 464 pp., $6.99)
