Identity Crisis (A Sam McRae Mystery Book 1) (English Edition) Kindle版
Literature & Fiction
"Identity Crisis grips you from the first page. Sam is a likeable heroine--smart, feisty and determined."
"This is a story with plenty of action, a well-drawn plot and a set of interesting characters ... a fun read."
--New Mystery Reader
"Debbi Mack has created a first-rate heroine in Sam McRae. Sam is tough, resilient, sassy and unstoppable. Good thing, too, as Identity Crisis moves at a slam-bam pace."
--Simon Wood, author of Saving Grace and The One That Got Away
"Of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock once said, 'There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.' Author Debbi Mack nails that statement in this tightly written tale about a flawed Maryland attorney, 'Sam' McRae ... a taut narrative with crackling dialogue."
--Aimee Zuccarini, The Maryland Women's Journal.
"If you enjoy realistic legal thrillers ... Identity Crisis will be a genuine treat."
--Jeremiah Healy, Author of Rescue, Turnabout and The Only Good Lawyer--このテキストは、paperback版に関連付けられています。

The ending? Well, I still don't know exactly what happened in the end. I had to read the final three chapters again in case I had overlooked something, but I don't think I did. It seemed as if Debbi had run out of paper - or time. Shame.
Overall, a book that I had difficulty putting down, and a good start to a writing career.
Although it's a crime thriller she's avoided pages of gore (nice change) and there's no sickening female torture scenes, which seem to be in so many crime books now. I read it in one sitting and, tellingly, I didn't skip any pages. Often I find books go off on pages and pages of inter-character dialogue or "fleshing out characters" with flashbacks that you know are not adding anything to the plot and you end up speed reading (or maybe that's just me). Not in this case - read every word.
First novel ? 9 out of 10. Will look out for more of her books.
At the Kindle price its an absolute steal and I can totally recommend it. I've already downloaded the follow-up, so that says it all really.
He never goes to the Library now because the large print books are in small supply, but on the iPad he can enlarge the writing to his liking.
He loved this book and all the other books he has read by this author.
The plot is a little convoluted but well thought out.
My confusion arose from the title of the book, which did not mesh with the action, which involved murders, accusal of the lawyer’s client, injuries to the lawyer by the Mob, and character name change, but where was the identity crisis? A Post Office box she didn’t open in the lawyer’s name with somebody else’s mail in it? A piece of paper with her social security number on it that mysteriously disappeared? No follow up on either item.
If either of these clues were supposed to indicate attempted identity theft, no further actions supported this. The term “identity theft” normally applies to a very serious illegal crime, but in this case “Identity Crisis” appears to be used more as an attention getter for the book than an actual case. You might enjoy this book as a murder mystery but don’t be led astray by the title.
I received a Kindle copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review.
