Twists and turns...

a fast read. I never knew what was going to come next. just when I thought I had figured it out, it became clear that I did not, which made it that much more enjoyable.

Good read

Good read

fast moving plot that makes the book hard to put down. story moves along at a good pace. well written with th h humor at the right places.
Bob Nelson
Well written and exciting mystery. I found it hard to put down, kept me on the edge of my seat reading to the end. Written by a former student of mine.
The idea of the FBI setting up a civilian to be bait for ruthless international killers under false pretenses strains believability, but then the whole genre of sci-fi strains believability for me. If you can get over that hump the story is a beautifully created suspense-thriller. Highly recommended.

Talented writer Mark Hosack (Give ‘em Hell, Malone) has given the world a gift with the debut of his incredibly awesome book IDENTITY. This quick-paced business thriller about people driven by greed & tempted by power presents plenty of significant characters delivering razor sharp dialogue and is loaded with amazing thrills from beginning to middle to end. IDENTITY is the most unpredictable story I’ve read in ages -- Surprises at every turn of the page! Highly recommend opening your eyes to ...more
Great read -- I couldn’t put it down! The fast paced thriller features a sympathetic protagonist who is thrust into a dark and dangerous world when his identity is mistaken by a cast of mysterious, well-drawn characters, whose real identities are in turn ambiguous to him. Hosack’s background as a screenwriter shows in outstanding dialogue and vivid descriptions of people and places. The caliber of the writing is first-rate and the action is augmented by a delightful wry wit. I can’t wait to see ...more
Want to read a page turner that also satirizes the Age of Libor-Madoff-Enron? Corporate hijinks, cat and mouse, a mystery femme fatale, and a hero for the's all here. A super fun read! (And it doesn't hurt that the author is a looker....and my wonderful husband, Mark).
Gripping, darkly comic financial thriller in which nobody is who they seem and everybody is out for themselves. I'm not usually a fan of the genre, but Hosack's (Give 'Em Hell, Malone) website and trailer left me wanting more, and I was not disappointed. Check it out!

I enjoyed the fast-paced story. I would have been a tougher editor, but despite my pickiness it was nice to read something fun and exciting for a change. I can't wait for the next one.
