A God in Disguise

It’s 1936 and three years have passed since the wilful and highly intelligent Livia Seigel left Stockholm, under circumstances shrouded in mystery and fire. In Venice, she lives hidden with her son Aron, a child she has rescued – or kidnapped – depending on who you ask.

Mikael Kejser, a man who suffered severe injuries during Livia’s exit in Stockholm, has been informed that he does not have long to live, and has decided to spend the little time he has left on revenge. He entrusts Noel Bråkensköld, a young doctor with a dark past and in desperate need of money, to find Livia and the stolen child, in exchange for money. But when Noel reaches Venice, Livia and Aron are nowhere to be found – instead he finds Henrik Seigel, who is on the run from a prison sentence in Sweden, and who apparently has wealthy enemies after him. The promise of an even bigger reward makes Noel shift his focus.

Meanwhile, Livia and Aron have been abducted and separated from each other. Being told that she will never see the child again, and fearing all the horrors she once liberated him from, Livia fights desperately for her own freedom and to save her adopted son. A quest leading her further down into the abyss of political depravation and sadistic violence.

In A God in Disguise, the second part in the historical suspense Plague Mask trilogy, the reader is invited to a dark and heartbreaking journey following the Seigel family and their dramatic world of death, secrets, betrayal, and unexpected alliances.
