New York Times bestselling author John Saul is a master at
writing novels that chill the bones, curdle the blood, and
tap into our darkest fears. He creates characters so real
that you’ll feel as if they’re friends or family, and throws
them into situations so terrifying that you won’t be able to
look away until you turn the final page. Now, in Faces of
Fear, Saul proves that there’s a fine line between
perfection and madness.
Fifteen-year-old Alison Shaw
may not be beautiful, but she doesn’t really care: She’d
much rather read a good book than primp in front of a mirror
anyway. But Alison’s gorgeous mother, Risa, knows that
beauty can be a key to success and wishes only the best for
her daughter, especially when Risa marries a widowed plastic
surgeon and moves Alison from Santa Monica to Bel Air.
Beauty may be only skin deep, but to the denizens of Bel Air
it means the world. Everywhere mother and daughter look,
they are surrounded by beautiful people, many of whom have
benefited from the skills of Alison’s new stepfather, the
charismatic Peter Dunn. Peter is certain he can turn Alison
into a vision of loveliness, and Risa–drawn in by his cool
confidence–is delighted. Reluctantly, Alison agrees to
undergo the first procedure, and her transformation
But soon Alison discovers a picture of
Peter’s first wife. To Alison’s horror, she notices a
resemblance between the image in the photo and the work her
stepfather is doing on her. Though Risa refuses to
acknowledge the strange similarity, Alison becomes
increasingly frightened. Digging further into her
stepfather’s murky past, Alison uncovers dark secrets–and
even darker motives–and realizes that her worst fears are
fast becoming her reality.
