The element of the supernatural is so gradually and deftly introduced into [Stranger with My Face] that its presence seems natural and believable and, hence, more menacing. While some of the author's attempts at "symbolism" are a bit obvious, and some of the minor characters are sketchily portrayed, most readers will not mind. They will be completely caught up in this suspenseful, gripping book. The ironic surprise ending is one more asset in a finely crafted story.
