Book Description

5 Nov 2013
X is an identity thief extraordinaire who steals the identity of the worst possible person! He soon becomes a fugitive, hunted by every intelligence agency in the world. The international adventures of this sardonic and amoral anti-hero combine the irony of The Third Man with the fast-paced thrills of The Bourne Identity. To survive, X must use his talent for deceit and his chameleon-like ability to adopt one persona after another, as his predicament becomes steadily more harrowing and the stakes mount. A former writer for the satirical tabloid The Weekly World News, C. Michael Forsyth peppers The Identity Thief with sly humor and delicious twists. His acclaimed novel Hour of the Beast was hailed by Horror Fiction Review as a “fast-paced, rip-snorting, action-packed, sexy college romp.” Critics called his epic romantic adventure The Blood of Titans “an engrossing and well-crafted tale.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-worth reading 13 Dec 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As promised, this satirical novel is fun, intelligent and engaging... and also somewhat naughty. I enjoyed the combination of the current themes of identity theft and terrorism, and the timeless story of a man using his wiles to attempt to survive against all odds. The story moves at a fast pace and I found the plot twists to be surprisingly unpredictable. I can't wait for the movie!

" X " is not your typical criminal . He has developed the art of being an identity thief to the Nth degree . His crowning achievement is to be impersonating a wealthy multimillionaire from the middle east . Things go horribly wrong when the Homeland Security , the F.B.I. and other alphabet agencies chase him down in Los Vegas . It turns out his mark is actually a highly wanted terrorist . Now everyone thinks that " X " is the terrorist . How "X " deals with his problems takes the reader on a chase over several countries' borders , into the terrorist headquarters . An exciting climax makes this a great read . I highly recommend it .
