I loved this book. I was tempted to give it a 5-star rating but a few small concerns with the plot and ending caused me to drop it down to 4-star, but it's a superior 4-star.

This book is very much dialogue driven. I love that style of writing and was quite impressed with how Andrew price pulled it off in Without a Hitch. It's not an easy way to write a book. The interplay between the main character, Alexander Corbin, and his co-workers was natural sounding and the dialogue quickly established un

At first I wasn’t sure about reading a thriller, but I decided to take a chance on Without a Hitch. Once I got into this story there was no turning back. The author, Andrew Price, cleverly caught and held my attention from the first page onward.

This debut novel is about two lawyers who concoct a scheme to get rich, not exactly legally. Well, actually – not legally at all. That’s where the trouble starts, and it builds to such a heightened point of stress that I had to walk away a few times to br

I won this book through Goodreads First Reads.

For the most part, I enjoyed this book. The story was unique and fresh, and the courtroom drama kept me interested most of the time.

The biggest aggravation was that there were numerous grammar and punctuation errors throughout the book, so many so that it detracted from the story and negatively affected the professional feel of the book. I am surprised that so many errors got by the editor. The most frequent error that I saw was the use of a question

Without a Hitch was magnificent. I loved every minute of it. It was very well written with fantastic characters. I liked both Evan and Alex. They are very different from each other, but they are both likeable. The dialogue was some of the best written dialogue I've read, very natural and smooth. The humor was also great. The storyline was compelling. I read all 408 pages over 2 sittings, started last evening and finished this morning. Sometimes I wish sleep wasn't necessary.

I was very satisfied

A most unusual plot. Two attorneys in D.C. decide to steal the identities of their coworkers. They put together the false ids and establish bank accounts in Philadelphia in order that they can apply for credit cards and pursue the rest of their plan. They were very successful at this. Months later a man is arrested for the crimes in Philadelphia. He has been set up by the Police, but he is also a career criminal and genuine 'bad doer'. The one attorney (with a conscience) decides to defend the m ...more

Without a Hitch is almost two books for the price of one. It's kind of like an episode of Law and Order where the first bit is the Law and the second is the Order.

Two colleagues who are bored in their jobs decide to commit the perfect crime - credit card theft.

The setting up of the "thefts" was enjoyable to read, although I must admit I kept getting the two characters mixed up at the start as it dragged a bit and they seemed much of a muchness. As the book progressed, it was obvious which was wh

I had a hard time being interested in the story or the characters until the second half. Possibly, if I related to the cubical/ office work invironment, then I might have enjoyed some of first part better. But after going through the enjoyable part of the trial, we're given an ending that was unsatisfactory. Not the ending that I was looking forward to. Also there was a story point of a wallet getting gone that never paid off. It was as if that point that was so focused on earlier was just forgo ...more

My reactions to this book are mixed. The plot was quite different from most legal thrillers. I liked that one of the characters went through a real moral dilemma before agreeing to participate in an identity theft scheme and that his conscience bothered him after he let his situation rationalize his decision. I found the trial intriguing. On the other hand, I was distracted by a number of errors and foul language. I found the descriptions of the incompetence of the government employees overdone, ...more

This had potential to be a good book, but in the end I always wanted to read something else. The story was written in a way that you wanted the guy who was stealing money to win. Not something I could really get behind. I'm sure it was a fun adventure, but I'm moving on.

I've become Andrew Price's biggest fan. I read "Wrongful Death" and loved it. Now I've read this one and it was even better. This book was truly neat. It had great characters, a fanastically fresh idea, a real suprising ending, and a neat moral dilema. I was really impressed.

I enjoyed this very much. Price has come up with a fresh story line that makes putting the book down almost impossible.

I was disappointed in this book. It actually read fairly well but the crime itself seem implausible.

Lack of trust between them leads people to make assumptions about each other that may prove wrong and possibly even fatal.
