Publisher's Summary

The Inverted Mask takes the listener on a thrilling adventure through the pine barrens of eastern Long Island, the heights of the Catskill Mountains, and the depths of subterranean particle-beam tunnels hundreds of feet below Long Island.
Physicist Dr. Jon Sanborne, and his fiancée, psychiatrist Dr. Marta Padlo, are drawn into an intrigue that spans decades, continents, and the nature of reality when they begin to look into the mystery of Dr. Emery Hilcraft, a renowned physicist who disappeared from a research lab many years ago. Jon's explorations through restricted buildings at the Ridgewood National Laboratory lead him to discover the secret and unspeakably evil history of experimentation at the lab, and bring Jon and Marta into the sights of the paramilitary force that is charged with protecting those secrets. Along the way, they decipher the hidden mysteries of Dr. Hilcraft's amazing research, which brings them face to face with parallel realities.

For the love of Science

TARGET AUDIENCE: Individuals with a love of science and details. This book delves deeply into quantum physics. If science is not your strong suit, skip this book. Also because of the author’s love for details, the first half of the book was very slow for me. I can see how some readers would enjoy this, but it just wasn’t for me.

PROFANITY & SEX: None. It alludes to such, but stays out of the bedroom. Thank you! This book is appropriate for all ages.

STORY LINE: As previously noted, the book was heavy on the details - way too detailed for me. If you have four theories and only one of them pertains to the story line of the book, I only want to have one explained to me. The book would have been better if an editor had of cut about 1/3 of it out. I think in that case, I would have really enjoyed it. Once again if you love science, you may just disagree with me, and I can respect that.

VOICE: The voice was overly precise. In Idaho when we refer to the Idaho National Laboratories, nobody calls it by its full name. We either call it “the site” or “INL.” To use the formal name for everything over and over again is redundant and repetitive. Nobody says 430 feet down over and over again. We say “I can’t believe we are 400 feet down.” There were times when I got frustrated and wanted to yell, “People don’t talk that way.” Much of the time, I felt like I was reading a scientific journal and not a novel.

NARRATOR: Unremarkable. The narrator neither made or broke the story.

OVERALL: I can only think of a handful of people to whom I could recommend this book.

Dialogue is Important

John Sanborn and Marta are in love and just moving in together. They both work at a top secret facility involved in the research of quantum physics. When John discovers a link to a groundbreaking scientist who used to work at the same facility but disappeared 30 years ago, the inquisitive scientists can't help but try to follow his trail and find out what happened to him. Especially since things are going downhill at work and the facility is becoming more like a military installation and one young doctor has already paid with his life.

I didn't mind the scientific talking points. It was put in simple enough language so the average person could understand it. There was a lot of it, though, and this may have overwhelmed other readers. I didn't mind the action not getting going until the middle of the book and then being brief and concluding quickly with not a lot of tension or suspense. What I couldn't get past as the dialogue. It was bad. And forced. And stilted to a degree that made me speed up the listen to 2x to get through it.

The narration was just OK for me. I usually like Daniela Acitelli. She is actually one of the big reasons I chose this listen. Her voice is reminiscent of Sigourney Weaver to my ears. But in this audiobook she spoke very, very slowly and could not make up for the really bad dialogue and she did not even try for Marta's Ukranian accent.

I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
