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.

** 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.

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.

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

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.

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 wonderfully fast paced and dynamic thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Believable characters and a fantastic story, with very detailed descriptions. Once I started reading this book I couldn't put it down and highly recommend it; you will not be disappointed.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The synopsis accurately describes the action, and I loved the concept right from the very beginning... which was slow. So slow, in fact, that it took me days on end to pass the first 20% of the book. But then, so do some of Ruth Rendell's books, and I still loved her. I persevered, mostly because I loved the concept. This had to get better! And it did.
Michelle Muckley did not disappoint. By 25% of the way through, the main character discovers he's being targeted by an assassin. Imagine that! By 50%, my initial 4 star rating jumped to 5 stars, and then it fixed there for the duration. I absolutely loved the plot, the twists and turns, Ben's gormlessness and Hannah's determination. I even loved her father, who only featured for a couple of pages.
The author is a skilled storyteller and she has the knack of making the characters realistic. I loved them (or loved to hate them), though I would have expected Mike's motives to be better veiled in mystery. As it was, the story allowed the reader to know more than the main character and, more than once, I found myself muttering `No, Ben, don't do that!'. It worked for me. I was completely invested, and no way could I bring myself to put the book down from about 65% onwards.
A very enjoyable book, right on the point where three genres meet - mystery, action and thriller - I would wholeheartedly recommend it. I would happily gift it to some of my friends. Five shiny stars for Identity X.
