Oscar de Muriel was born in Mexico City and moved to the UK to complete his PhD. He is a chemist, translator and violinist who now lives and works in Manchester. A Mask of Shadows is his third novel, following A Fever of the Blood and The Strings of Murder.
A Fever of the Blood was a great book, in my opinion, it was even better than the first installment! I love the writing in these books! I love how Muriel builds the supernatural and magical aspects up and keeps you on the edge of your seat. But there is always an explanation for everything so you are never left in the dark. I also loved the atmosphere of this book! Overall a great read!
