BOOK REVIEW: Identity by Nora Roberts



Identity by Nora Roberts

St Martins Press (May 23, 2023)

Crime Thriller


The #1 New York Times-bestselling author’s terrifying new thriller about one man’s ice-cold malice, and one woman’s fight to reclaim her life.

Former Army brat Morgan Albright has finally planted roots in a friendly neighborhood near Baltimore. Her friend and roommate Nina helps her make the mortgage payments, as does Morgan’s job as a bartender. But after she and Nina host their first dinner party—attended by Luke, the flirtatious IT guy who’d been chatting her up at the bar—her carefully built world is shattered. The back door glass is broken, cash and jewelry are missing, her car is gone, and Nina lies dead on the floor.

Soon, a horrific truth emerges: It was Morgan who let the monster in. “Luke” is actually a cold-hearted con artist named Gavin who targets a particular type of woman, steals her assets and identity, and then commits his ultimate goal: murder.

What the FBI tells Morgan is beyond chilling. Nina wasn’t his type. Morgan is. Nina was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. And Morgan’s nightmare is just beginning. Soon she has no choice but to flee to her mother’s home in Vermont. While she struggles to build something new, she meets another man, Miles Jameson. He isn’t flashy or flirtatious, and his family business has deep roots in town. But Gavin is still out there hunting new victims, and he hasn’t forgotten the one who got away.


Identity – Nora Roberts – St. Martin’s Press (



A wonderful, new thriller about one man’s evil, and one woman’s journey to reclaim her life.

What I loved the most was the three generation household. They worked well together, supported one another, loved and comforted each other, and had fun with each other. “Her ladies” really came through for Morgan and I loved seeing her reconnect with her family. I loved how they gave her the grace to rebuild her life. I liked all the characters in this story. The villain was truly an unhinged evil; Miles was full of kindness,, respect, and support; Morgan was hard-working, dedicated, and full of life that having this horrible thing happen to her you just knew she was going to come out of it stronger. I loved Morgan and Miles together; their relationship was perfect for the story. A truly wonderful read.
