The Mask by Dean Koontz


Who are we really? This is a concept explored in The Mask. Who is actually Uber a face. Is there reincarnation. Can a person be haunted. Are mentally ill people more than that.

This is a Jane Doe story. The central character has complete and total amnesia. A girl without any idea how she wound up where she was. Luckily a psychiatrist finds her and works with her to uncover who she is.

The Mask starts out with a story about a young girl from a very long time ago. A little about her short life. Does this have anything to do with Jane Doe? Only the reader knows about this other girl from long ago. It’s a side story.

Jane Doe is sweet but a bit scary sometimes. Weird things start happening around her. Scary weird things. Deep in Jane Does subconscious there are things she needs to do. No one figures this out. The psychiatrists husband is the one who really feels the danger. He puts together something from nothing. Jane Doe has a past. Revenge is her future.

Leaving the husband as the voice of reason was an excellent idea. The psychiatrist trying to help Jane Doe is dooming them all. Very original story. Quick and easy read.
