Critic Reviews

"At every opportunity, Sawyer forces his readers to think while holding their attention with ingenious premises and superlative craftsmanship." (Booklist)
"Identity Theft is on the Hugo ballot, and it is easy to see why....The conclusion is non-stop action - literally slam-bang. Highly recommended." (Ann Cecil, Sigma, the newsletter of Parsec, the Pittsburgh SF Society)

Minor Sawyer work - hard-boiled detective vibe

Any additional comments?

It was a little too hard-boiled for me, touching on the typical cliches of a dame approaching a private eye but not telling him everything. The stilted style of the book kept me from ever being too engaged, but if you like old-school detective books, there are some fun sci-fi ideas about the possibility of being able to download your mind into another body.

Clever Idea

Interesting short story but I prefer his longer books; still, it wasn't bad at all.
