Illusions of Privacy: Murder, Identity Theft & the American Way by Seven Major is a thought-provoking, exciting tale. Cici thought her life was perfect until one terrible night. Plans are put in place to give her the identity of a woman murdered in cold blood and nobody knows. Almost 30 years on, everything starts to fall apart and the walls begin to crumble. You wouldn’t know this woman if she lived next door to you. You wouldn’t believe her life if she sat and told you all about it, but that is just what she is going to do. In a bid to tell her children how sorry she is and to offer up some kind of explanation to the family she deceived for so long, she begins to write. She tells all, holding nothing back as she names the players in the complex game that has been played out for so long. Will it ever end? Will she ever be able to stop running and settle down?

Illusions of Privacy: Murder, Identity Theft & the American Way by Seven Major is an amazing story. It was long and detailed, but it was compelling reading. It is a fiction story, but you will start to question whether it is, in fact, at the very least based on a real life story. The way this has been written would have you believe you are reading a true account of someone's life and, believe me, you will not want to put this down until you are done. The ending has a neat twist to it, not one I saw coming I have to admit, and it is the perfect ending to a perfect story. Seven Major must have put so much work into this story to get it just right and the characters’ stories come out gradually, allowing you to get to know them. By the end of the book, you will feel like these people have been a huge part of your life and you will experience every high and low along with them. Fantastic book. I hope that Seven Major is going to produce more work along these lines.
