Headline: Maneater is on the Prowl

In Smoke Screen, Monique Mensah reintroduces us to a trio of ladies from her first novel, Who Is He To You. It is ten years later but Simone, Ryan, and Lauren are still connected to one another. A female serial killer is on the loose and the media has named her the “Maneater and any one of the main characters could be her.

Simone is a sexual abuse survivor and is currently working with young girls who have gone through the same experience as her. Ryan, who was a pedophile’s mistress ten years ago is now married and desperately wants a baby even though her husband does not. Lauren is now a very successful lawyer who is carrying on an inappropriate relationship. All of these ladies have a motive and means to be the serial killer, but which one is it?

Monique Mensah does an excellent job of character development so if you have not read her previous works, you will not be lost. She continues to explore the often ignored world of mental health and keeps it suspenseful. The very last page of Smoke Screen has me excited to see what Monique Mensah has in store for us when Nemesis is released in June 2012.
