Identity Theft is a hard-boiled detective novella set on Mars. Cassandra and Joshua Wilkins are fossil hunters who have both recently transferred their minds into artificial bodies, but now Joshua has mysteriously disappeared. Cassandra must hire Alex Lomax, the only private detective on the red planet, to locate Joshua before sinister forces get to him.
Robert J. Sawyer has written 18 novels, and his short fiction has been published in numerous magazines and anthologies. He has won 41 national and international awards, most prominently the 1995 Nebula Award, the 2003 Hugo Award, and the 2006 John W. Campbell Memorial Award.
"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)
