The Mask of Destiny by Richard Newsome: Book Review

Gerald Wilkins may finally get a chance to relax and enjoy his inherited wealth. Together, with his best friends, Sam and Ruby, they attend the trial of his arch nemesis, Sir Mason Green, in hopes of seeing him get locked away for a very long time. Instead, they witness the murder of Mason Green from a poison dart and Gerald is framed for his murder.

In a frantic dash across Europe, the trio must dodge the law while pursuing the mysterious cat woman, Charlotte, who happens to be the niece of Sir Mason Green. Not only must Gerald and his friends try to uncover Mason Green's true killer, they must also try to recover the ruby stolen by Charlotte. The ruby which is the key to the third casket. Gerald had hoped the the third casket could rest undisturbed, but his enemies are bent on uncovering its secrets.

Richard Newsome's final book in the Archer trilogy, The Mask of Destiny, starts as thriller, promising to be his best work yet. However, the forced ending was a bit of a let down compared to the previous books in the series. Nevertheless, still recommended for the adventure lover and thrill seeker as there are some nail biting escapes and action filled scenes. Ages 8-12.
