The Face of Death
The Face of Death

CarolePinky, July 8, 2008

It is hard to imagine a murder mystery of such horrendous proportions written by someone with the soul of poet. Cody McFadyen's style of writing gripped me immediately, drew me in - it is prose of a very high level. As such, I was unprepared for how tense and yes, gruesome, this novel was. I was moved to find the author's website and email him a bravo as well as purchasing another book by him.

A remarkable book w/illustrations that are museum quality art. My daughter grew up on books like this and developed a sense of beauty and poetry.
