's review

it was amazing

I defy anyone to read the first page of this novel and not be compelled to finish it.

Await Your Reply is about identity theft and high-tech criminal enterprises. Think Tom Ripley, if he were alive and at large in today's world.

But, and I don't want to scare anyone off, it's also about something much deeper: it's about the very notion of identity itself, the impermanence of it.

It's got the pacing and plotting of a good thriller, but it's populated with very believable characters, and it's written in beautiful prose. A very satisfying read.
