Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Good read"
    Where does The Identity Thief rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is just my kind of story, and kept me interested the whole time with its twists and turns. Good character development.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of C. Michael Forsyth?

    I guess I'm spoiled by the professional quality of the narrators of other books. I had a hard time understanding this narrator's sing-song voice, and large range of volumes. Half the time I could barely hear him, and the other half it felt like he was shouting. The every once in a while there was a large hiss that was that very distracting.

    Story
    "Starts wonderfully..."
    Would you listen to The Identity Thief again? Why?

    Yes, we'll certainly the first few hours anyway. The protagonists criminal career, motives and techniques are all well described and researched. After the dramatic change of fortunes for the main man, the story becomes a little thin and lacks tension.


    Would you be willing to try another book from C. Michael Forsyth? Why or why not?

    Yes, a very intriguing read


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Any of the opening few hours, but especially where the main character was describing his previous exploits. The escape from the hotel was also very compelling.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The torture scenes were gritty, without being gratuitous
