Evil in All Its Disguises
March 2013 used to seem so far away. Not anymore! My third novel, EVIL IN ALL ITS DISGUISES, will be published by Forge on March 5th, 2013. Here’s a brief summary:
Lily Moore joins a group of travel journalists for an all-expenses-paid press trip to Mexico’s famous resort town of Acapulco. But the city, once the playground of Hollywood stars, is a place of faded glamour and rising crime. When Lily arrives at the luxurious Hotel Cerón, she finds a resort that’s nearly deserted, a staff who waits attentively to serve guests who aren’t there, and abandoned construction projects on the grounds.
Lily’s fellow journalist, Skye McDermott, drops hints about an investigation she’s conducting. Skye, deeply upset at a lover who jilted her, is obsessed with getting revenge by exposing his company’s fraud and illegal activities. But when Skye suddenly disappears, Lily knows something is terribly wrong.
The hotel’s staff refuses to listen or to even contact the authorities, and Lily begins to suspect that Skye is in grave danger. Worse yet, as Lily herself tries to escape, she discovers she’s become a virtual prisoner in a gilded cage.
A deadly trap has been set, and Lily finds herself maneuvered into the role of bait. Faced with unthinkable choices, Lily must summon all her strength to survive and to save those she loves.
Anthony Award–winner Hilary Davidson weaves a thrilling story of paranoia, vengeance, and murder.
