Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Mask of Time

Anna Kelly is on the biggest search of her life. Using her journalistic skills and the help of her new lover, Philip Westward, she unknowingly gets too close to the truth of her family history. She is searching for a man she hopes survived the tortures of World War II.   The attempted murder of her life scares her but only fuels her desire to uncover the truth no matter what that may be. Philip also is searching for someone, his father. He hopes they can pool their resources and years of solitary research to expedite the search. There are others who want this search stopped, but why? That is what Anna and Philip plan to find out.
