John Shannon is on the run facing life in prison, or death by lethal injection. Then, a bizarre text message draws him to a meeting in the dark of night. A foreigner who calls himself the Identity Man offers Shannon an incredible chance to start again: a new face, a new home, a new beginning. Soon Shannon is living a life he never dreamed possible. In a ruined city that is trying to rebuild, he finds work as a carpenter and a wood carver. He falls in love. But just as Shannon is within sight of redemption, all hell breaks loose. It turns out the city is crawling with corruption. There are crooked politicians, gangsters, dirty cops everywhere—and all of them seem to want Shannon dead. Moving through the darkness in the burnt out shambles of a dirty town, he’s got to ferret out the secret of his new life. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “The inexorable pace and superior quality of the writing lift the story onto a level that feels almost mythic.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Klavan builds slow-burning tension like nobody’s business…This noir-tinted tale upends the conventions of that genre: instead of noir’s existentialism, where little people are crushed by unfeeling bureaucracy, in Klavan’s world the bloodthirsty bureaucracy actively wants to crush the little guy. Klavan’s world is dark, indeed.”


  • “A compelling moral fable in the shape of a gritty, twist-filled thriller.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “A work of intense realism pervaded by sorrow, mercy, hope—and ultimately, transcendence.”

    Washington Times

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Jeanette | 6/8/2011

    " This was a decent suspense novel, which I listened to on audiobook. When an author can get me to root for a "bad guy" (no matter how misunderstood), that is a sign of good writing. I enjoyed this and will be adding other Klavan works to my reading list. "
