Description

It begins when a meth-addicted grave robber unearths the death mask of Montezuma, setting off a violent struggle for its possession. There is the drug lord who employs him, who would kill for that mask. There is the expat American collector, sinister and possibly mad. There is the greatly respected curator, who for a fee will provide provenances for his country's looted artifacts, and his long-suffering housekeeper, a deeply religious lesbian in a culture of machismo, who despises her patron. And there is the looter himself, who has stolen the mask and is now running for his life. Above all, there is Anna Ramsey, an American with a history of bad choices, who has hidden behind a mask all her adult life. A deeply wounded woman, Anna knows that masks protect and conceal. Anna is a heroine for our times, as she searches for the courage to remove her mask and show her true face.

Professional reviews

"This interesting audio production is regrettably something of a mess. Tim Pabon does a fine job with Spanish accents and pronunciations, important since the setting is Mexico, but his phrasing is often inattentive, and the many audible edits are distracting. The plot: a drug-addled young American who loots and sells archaeological treasures for a living finds Montezuma's death mask, sells it to a vicious drug lord, then steals it back. Bad idea. Enter about four more people with imperfect moral compasses, all wanting the mask for different reasons, most willing to kill for it. It's thrilling in spots, but in genre fiction, however literary, it helps to know whom to root for. For me the only character to believe in here was Montezuma.
