The Guise of Another Review

The Guise of Another Review
Minnesota Detective Alexander Rupert was reassigned from Narcotics to the Forgery and Fraud unit in the basement of City Hall during a Federal investigation. The Feds were investigating possible corruption and Rupert’s unexpected, and unwanted, move made it look like he was the one they were investigating.

He was shunned by fellow detectives, and felt like his life was heading on a downward spiral. The Medal of Valor winner was under subpoena by the grand jury. If that wasn’t enough, he found out his wife was having an affair.

Working on an identity theft case placed Rupert in danger when a trained assassin turned up searching for a man who was supposed to have died in car accident years ago. Someone else had assumed his name in 2001.

Now Rupert was looking for the brother and for the man using his identity. The closer he got to the truth, the more he realized someone was trying to now kill him to keep him quiet. He contacted Max, his older brother and a fellow police detective, to help him out.

The Guise of Another by Allen Eskens follows his first suspense novel, the award winning The Life We Bury.

The author grabs the interest of the reader from page one and keeps on delivering the unexpected until the very last page. The twists and turns are often a surprise and sometimes a shock as we watch the protagonist try to maintain his place in life as a detective and a man who seems on the edge of losing everything he holds dear.

His characters are well formed and even the axillary characters seem true to life. Readers will feel the emotional pain as Rupert’s downward spiral seems inevitable. He is the type of man we want to succeed in spite of the mounting predicament he finds himself in, and who we will remember after the final shocking, and unexpected, end.
