A New York bar bouncer with dreams of being more, Tommy Russo jumps at the chance to join a horse-owning syndicate. But to do so he'll have to pony up $10,000 - and that's money he hasn't got. So what's an ambitious young man to do?
Anything he has to...
In the tradition of The Killer Inside Me and The Talented Mr. Ripley, Jason Starr has created a memorable protagonist who will go to any extent to achieve his 'deserved' portion of the American dream. A chilling narrative of lies, mind games, and the forces that guide pure evil, Fake ID is destined to become a classic.
