Book Description



How are you supposed to survive when you are already dead?

Ben Stone has one aim; discover the cure for genetic disease. It takes four years working in Bionics Laboratories, but he succeeds. He discovers NEMREC, a serum able to reconstruct DNA. It should be the beginning of a new future, and the chance he was looking for to save his son. But by changing the face of the world, he has unwittingly destroyed his own.

But when he arrives at his laboratory to find that everything has disappeared, he is soon sucked into a world of conspiracy and betrayal. The Agency wants NEMREC and will do anything to get it. But they also want Ben dead. He is ready to fight to save his life, but in a world where you are already dead, how are you supposed to survive?

What are people saying about this spy mystery?

Wow! This is what I found myself repeating to myself while getting lost in this chair gripping book of suspense! Sarah’s book blog

In four words, A BLOODY GOOD BOOK. Goodreads reviewer

With a good dose of Alfred Hitchcock thrown in for good measure and maybe a little A. Huxley too. Move over Ludlum and Bagely, now we need some room on the shelf for Muckley. Goodreads reviewer

If I compared the story to an amusement park ride - it would be a roller coaster! It was suspenseful - full of twists and turns and I loved it! D.S.McKnight,

You may want to set up a safe house in case the same thing happens to you. Goodreads reviewer

Muckley’s books have a good sense of pace and the tension built to a fever pitch, peaking at the right moment. Goodreads reviewer

She definitely has the gift of storytelling. Goodreads reviewer

Product Description

About the Author

I was born in the town of Warwick in 1981. It is a small historical town in the heart of England, and I was the fifth child born into a family of boys. I developed a huge interest in the written world from a young age, and with more than a little help from Roald Dahl found quite the taste for anything gross and gory. Home now is Limassol, a city on the southern Mediterranean shores of Cyprus. Winters are spent in the mountains, summers are spent at the beach, and pretty much all hours between are sat at a computer where I am writing the next novel, or reading somebody else's.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could Do Better 6 April 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
** spoiler alert ** Very mixed feelings about this book but overall the tale rattled along. What stops it being rated higher were some odd inaccurate scenes in the sense of time and place. As an example the setting is unclear, but seems to be London but not London as we know it, that is OK it may be a future London, but all the street are numbered like a US city. Then suddenly there is a reference to football stickers (Soccer for our US friends) but the player's names are older. Money, transport are controlled by identity cards, which everyone has to carry but they don't ditch mobile phones until three quarters of the way through the book. The book is initially about a breakthrough in genetic research but DNA as proof of identity is ignored. The lead character a genius DNA researcher is suddenly able to out shoot professional assassins one of whom happens to be his wife who is in on the conspiracy. So lots of inconsistencies which spoil an otherwise interesting plot and the last chapter is just a throw in to set up a sequel. Think a mix of Total Recall with echoes of every chase book you have ever read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Bloody Good Book! 7 Oct. 2013
I was given the book as an ARC.

In four words, A BLOODY GOOD BOOK. From the intriguing beginning, where Ben Stone has made a discovery of epic scientific proportions, to a middle of deceit and thievery, to an end that tears a hole in your heart, Identity X is a thriller that will hold you on the edge of your seat and not allow you to lean back, take a breath and collect your thoughts before launching you into the next chapter.

The characters (ah, the characters - I loved them all) are well thought out and rich with depth. She has good guys, bad guys and some who sit on the fence tapping their fingers on their lips thinking hmmm, what should I do and that makes for an engaging read. Oh, and there are not so many characters that you lose track of them. There is an intimacy with each one that allows you to become invested in their futures. The writer has done a wonderful job of creating a connection with each of the main characters in the book and for me that is the biggest deal breaker to my enjoyment of a story. You will love, hate, cry, feel and empathize with them, and wish for long painfully excruciating deaths (oh, sorry, that was my outside fingers typing) of some.

The setting captures your senses and draws you into Ben's world, the world of London and the world of the not so distant future. The author does a fabulous job writing with all the senses; sight, touch, smell, taste and sound. You are there when she writes the scene.

The action and thrill keep the plot moving at a steady pace, which, like I said above truly holds your attention.

A really good book. The plot is original and for the most part very plausible (more often than not, I found myself "but how could they explain this or that?", only to find the answer on the next page), and the main characters have a real depth and are very believable. The ending of the book is a bit sudden and unexpected, but then I guess that's the author leaving a door open for the sequel. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and would highly recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Shame 19 Jan. 2015
By Huge
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story concept was good although not unique and the last chapters were quite exciting but there was something sadly lacking in the first three quarters of the book that made me want skip to the end. Basically, none of the characterizations are very good or very interesting so I didn't really want to bother to know what happens next but I stuck with it as best I could. Shame could have been so much better

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as interesting as I'd hoped 14 April 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this book would have an interesting story involving genetic research, but it turned out to be more about a person having to escape. The actual genetics side of it was not an important part of the plot and I found this a let down. It had a vaguely interesting back story but not enough to make this any different from any other cat and mouse tale in the end.
