In The Face of the Assassin, forensic sculptor Paul Bern works on reconstructing a face that is brought to him under unusual circumstances. This begins the process of Bern immersing himself in the world of espionage and terrorism. He impersonates his twin brother, a CIA agent who had recently been killed, and goes into the underworld of Mexico City on a mission to capture the world’s most dangerous terrorist. He has to go through Mexican gangsters in the process, including a man with his face torn off.
This is a novel that is loaded with action and a strong plot. There is intrigue throughout and a number of twists and turns, especially at the end of the novel. David Lindsey shows exceptional skill as a writer and knows how to keep the reader engaged in the novel. I would strongly recommend this action thriller.
