Publisher's Summary

Filled with nonstop suspense and stunning psychological insight, this is the story of Brendan Buchanan, undercover intelligence operative and master of over 200 false identities: a man forced to assume the most elusive and treacherous identity of all - his own.

Tracking the most devastating conspiracy he has ever encountered, trapped by his love for two enigmatic, beautiful women, he will race through a sinister labyrinth of intrigue to a shattering rendezvous with fate… in a novel that not only offers a brilliant, action-packed plot and fascinating characters, but asks daring, provocative questions about our own identities as well.

This should have been a great book, Morrell at his best,indeed it was it was for something like 90% of the total book, but the ending detracted from the whole. In short a great story line that led nowhere

Strange Book but fun

This was a strange little book, but it was a fun one you actually wanted to finish. I get it on sale with a group and was better than I thought it would be. Dated but really good.

Not Morrell's Best

The plot is reasonably interesting but the story becomes tedious. Mid-book, it seems like every chapter, Morrell, through the main character, beats us over the head with the same theme; "Who am I, I've taken on so my aliases over the past 8 years , I don't know who I am." Yeah, we get it. Is it necessary to write about it every chapter using almost the exact same words?

I have enjoyed Morrell in the past, but I couldn't wait for this one to end.

Narration was well done.

Convoluted . . but interesting listen!

Vintage Morrell, good character development . . . stong personalities that come alive and plenty of unbelieveable but entertaining action

My first David Morrell

I found the book difficult to listen to.The narrator did not hold my attention, I found it very easy to wonder off and start thinking about other things while listening. Overall it was quite enjoyable though.

Nothing happens VERY slowly

Would you try another book from David Morrell and/or Phil Gigante?

No thanks...the feel is one of the author trying to make tedium sound frantic and suspenseful.

What was most disappointing about David Morrell’s story?

The lack of meaningful progress

Would you be willing to try another one of Phil Gigante’s performances?

Maybe.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Most disappointing....shocking boredom.

Entertaining...for the most part

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Good story line, held my interest however the primarily entertaining plot with fairly engaging twists & turns is peppered with sophmoric and sometimes downright silly lines. The ending was so over-the-top with boy loves girl perfection it was ridiculous. <br/><br/>The narration could have been better but it didn't add or detract from the book.

If you’ve listened to books by David Morrell before, how does this one compare?

Not sure that I would try another book by this author.
