The missing twenty-three returned as if nothing had happened, with the exception of one masquerader never to be found: the man behind the horned mask.Norrah and Jay befriend one of the masqueraders. Together they attempt to solve the mystery, and in doing so uncover something incredible.**Please be advised: In this story there is sex, violence, foul language, drug use, and a positive religious message.
