Imagine losing your life as you know it and having to start over under a new identify, in the blink of an eye...and NOT the witness protection program. This is what happens to Ben.
A fun, fast read that at times is implausible and at times is totally believable. For the dreamer in all of us, who've ever wished we could turn and throw it all away and still have a happy ending.. this book's for us.
A fine debut novel. Our hero takes a wild if improbable ride when everything he treasures blows up in his face (figuratively). Suspend your disbelief and just enjoy the twists in Kennedy's plot. The tension builds page-by-page until it's nearly unbearable. Ok, the resolution may be a bit idealistic, but this really is one of those books you can't put down until you reach the last page!
I really enjoyed this novel. I always love when characters are able to drop out of sight and live a new life. I am amazed and chilled at the same time at the ease in which new identification can be bought to begin again.
I especially like that the story is told in the first person. It makes it seem as though the tale truly happened to someone like your best friend.
