Back in the 1980s serial killers were terrorizing America slashing their way through college campuses, quiet suburbs, and lakeside cabins. Bobbi Metzger was sixteen at the time when a killer slashed their way through Bobbi’s birthday party leaving her the lone survivor on that fateful night.
Now, thirty years later, Bobbi has spent decades trying to pull her life together and recover from that horrific night. Always on the lookout Bobbi just knows that the horror is still out there and will come for her one day. Little does Bobbi know that now she’ll have to face a new killer that is determined to open a doorway to an abyss of unimaginable horror.
Mask Beneath Her Face by Rafael Chandler is definitely not for the faint of heart as this one is straight up gore and mayhem from the opening pages. The author has taken the idea of those slasher films of the eighties and gone a step farther with the survivors bringing them once again to the brink of bloody mayhem.
After finishing this book I had one of those what the heck did I just read moments?? But in this case that was a good feeling as the story while reminding me of the old slasher movies also took on a life of it’s own instead of feeling like other things already out there. This one would be for those that were fans of things like Friday the 13th or Nightmare on Elm St and just didn’t get enough with the multiple films and want to go one step further.
