The Monkey’s Mask

by Dorothy Porter

The Monkey’s Mask is a totally unique experience. It’s poetry. It’s a crime thriller. It’s where high art meets low life, passion meets betrayal, and poetry faces profanity on the streets of a harsh modern city. Dorothy Porter’s verse novel holds you in its grip from the first verse paragraph to the final haunting pages.
