Duration: 8 hours 40 minutes
John Shannon is on the run facing life in prison, or death by lethal injection. Then, a bizarre text message draws him to a meeting in the dark of night. A foreigner who calls himself the Identity Man offers Shannon an incredible chance to start again: a new face, a new home, a new beginning. Soon Shannon is living a life he never dreamed possible. In a ruined city that is trying to rebuild, he finds work as a carpenter and a wood carver. He falls in love. But just as Shannon is within sight of redemption, all hell breaks loose. It turns out the city is crawling with corruption. There are crooked politicians, gangsters, dirty cops everywhere—and all of them seem to want Shannon dead. Moving through the darkness in the burnt out shambles of a dirty town, he’s got to ferret out the secret of his new life.
“A compelling moral fable in the shape of a gritty, twist-filled thriller.”--Wall Street Journal
