WOW!

Take a thief on the run, framed for murders he didn’t commit given a new identity (face and all) by a mysterious benefactor, drop him in a flood and riot-ravaged thoroughly corrupt city, mix in a charismatic black politician being prepared for a messianic entrance on the national stage, a preacher who sees through the pol, a murderous pair of cops willing to do anything to protect the politician’s legend– oh, and of course a good girl who falls for the anti-hero, this one the widow of a war hero—mix them all together and what do you get? Klavan’s master work to date.

When I finished Klavan’s last thriller, Empire of Lies, I remarked that I had never read anything quite like it. Identity Man makes Empire seem like it’s from a template.

Editor’s note: A full length review of this book will appear in FrontPage Magazine soon

Andrew Klavan will also be speaking at the Wednesday Morning Club on December 9. Register here.
