Publisher's Summary

The year is 1703, and Matthew Corbett, professional "problem solver", is missing. Last seen by his friends in New York before he departed on a lucrative, seemingly straightforward mission for the Herrald Agency in Charles Town, he's been too long absent. His comrade-in-arms Hudson Greathouse has an increasing sense the young friend he thinks of as a son must have met with some unexpected peril.
Following his hunch, Greathouse retraces Matthew's steps only to find him first presumed dead, then accused of murdering a young woman and apparently en route to London with a devious Prussian count last encountered on Professor Fell's Pendulum Island. Little does he know that Matthews's circumstances are growing worse by the second. For when Matthew arrives in the bustling squalor of Londontown, he's come shackled, charged for the murder of Count Anton Mannerheim Dahlgren. No matter the lack of body, presumed lost to the ocean. He soon finds himself locked up in the infamous Newgate prison, and has drawn the interest of a mysterious mask-wearing vigilante accused of several gruesome murders. Greathouse and the woman Matthew loves, Berry Grigsby, travel across the high seas to England to aid their friend, but it is impossible to know whether they will reach him in time to save his life.
Freedom of the Mask is the sixth installment in best-selling author Robert McCammon's acclaimed series of standalone historical thrillers featuring the exploits of a young hero the USA Character Approved Blog has called "the Early American James Bond".
The most surprising and ambitious volume to date, this is a novel filled with unpredictable twists and a note-perfect depiction of early 1700s London. Fans will not want to miss Matthew Corbett's most dangerous adventure yet.

Whew! Again what a story!

19 hours. More twists than you can wrap your brain around....and still want more! This book goes on and on but flows like a steady river rushing to a cliff you know is coming. And still you want more. The author has done a Wonderful job with the story and the narrator as usual brings all the characters to life. This is one of those stories you wish would never end..well you get your wish with this series. Can't wait until the next adventure.

A violent historical fiction

This is the 6th book in the series, and the protagonist is somehow still alive after too many harrowing life threatening events . I love Matthew 's curiosity, but it gets him into dangerous situations. He is still after the same enemies in each book. That is beginning to get old. Still, It is exciting, and the narrator Ballerini is excellent. His accent for each character is wonderful and you can picture each of the characters and the different scenes vividly .
I want some happily ever after in these books,
but I'll have to keep following, until that comes.?(

The Best So Far

Wonderful writing that had me laughing out loud in places. Narration to die for, with expression oozing from every syllable. Colorful characters and a pacy story all contribute to a great listening experience. However it is not for the faint hearted as there is violence in abundance. Previous knowledge of the Mathew Corbett novels helps, but is not essential. Highly recommended.

If you could sum up Freedom of the Mask in three words, what would they be?

Pure dead brilliant

What did you like best about this story?

Takes us even deeper into the sinister world of Professor Fell!

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Matthew's first courtroom appearance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Matthew met up with Berry in Wales...I will say no more.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next installment! Plus one little thing regarding early 18th century dentistry, I don't think they wore false teeth that could be kept in a glass by their bed...
