The Identity Man by Andrew Klavan

A nationwide manhunt is underway for John Shannon, a petty criminal framed for murder. But he's convinced he won't get caught. He's hiding in the ruins of a city destroyed by a terrible flood, and, thanks to a mysterious foreigner calling himself the Identity Man, he has a new face, new papers, and a new life. But the city is crawling with corruption. Crooked politicians, gangsters and dirty cops are everywhere, and for some reason Shannon doesn't understand, all of them want him dead. John Shannon has run out of second chances, and now he's running out of time. Moving through the darkness in the burnt-out shambles of a dirty town, he must ferret out the secret of his new life, before he is left with no life at all.


In Andrew Klavan's deft hands, we get a brilliant, nail-biting, rollercoaster of a novel that grips tight as the restraints on an electric chair. VAL McDERMID Klavan is one of my drop-everything-and-read authors. GREGG HURWITZ Powerful and dark. A plot-twisting, nail-biting noir that defines edge-of-the-chair suspense FAYE KELLERMAN As shamelessly thrilling as a rollercoaster Observer Andrew Klavan is impressive. Coolly detached, immensely detailed and totally convincing. Every character is brought to life. Sunday Telegraph Time flies when you're having fun, waiting to die, or reading Andrew Klavan. Nerve-plucking suspense. New York Times

Love Reading - it not only does what it says on the tin, it does it with Jam on!!

Maz Tucker

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.
