Publisher's Summary

Ian isn't crazy. Life would be a lot simpler if he was. He's eighteen, on the run, and scared - the shape-shifting delusions he's had since childhood have turned out to be real. He's the result of a dynamic mimicry project intended to help undercover agents "go grey" and blend in unnoticed. Now the biotech company wants its property back, and the only people he can trust are two private military contractors sent to find him: Rob, a former Royal Marine who's struggling to adjust to Civvy Street, and Mike, heir to a wealthy American political dynasty, who only ever wanted to be an ordinary guy. While the company hunts Ian, the two contractors try to help him harness his disturbing ability. But first Ian's got to work out what identity really means - and Mike and Rob have to decide how far they'll go to give him the chance of a normal life.

good story

Starts slow but if you can hang on it develops into a good story, Characters take time to develop thier backstories which initially seens superflulos but it pays off as the story develops,

Oddly wonderful

I am thrilled I bought this audiobook/book. It is a moral tale. as Si Fi often is, told through the eyes of three remarkable men, two of whom are men trained from different forms of military who recognize each other as worthy of respect. The third comes more from a military biological ordinance and still had training as strict, if not as straight forward. Sometimes avoiding spoilers makes things sound bland, and this is most definitely not.

I am amazed by authors who can weave three different back stories into one tale, especially an action tale driven by characters.

I do wish the author trusted the reader a bit more. This could have used a bit of editorial cutting in the backstories of the two soldiers and their families. Paraphrasing Hemingway, the excellence of a writer can be seen in the excellence of the cuts. Heck even one of my favorite authors cut the best scene of their book because it slowed the story. (They put it at the end of the book as a short story.)

Which is to say this is such a great I still committed more than 20 hours to it.
