* *   Reviewed by Bob Walch

His first mistake was getting into debt. His second was thinking he could use the identity of a reclusive and very wealthy man to solve his financial problems. Now Detective Nick Belsey has more trouble than he reckoned a little identity theft could cause.

Not only is Scotland Yard interested in the deceased millionaire whose name and money Nick has expropriated, but the man's wealth is also tied to some rather shady types who are determined to reclaim some of their misspent funds.

Poor Nick. This is certainly not what was supposed to happen when he hatched this clever scheme. Now it appears he is competing with some folks who are better at concocting scams like this than he is. And, unfortunately, they're exceedingly dangerous too.

Clever twists, a gripping narrative style and a dash of dark humor make this gritty thriller one you'll find hard to set aside. The Hollow Man marks British author Oliver Harris' debut in the U.S.. You'll find this talented writer has a gift for concocting unusual storylines and idiosyncratic characters.
