‘Assuming Names’ is one of those books that effortlessly propel you forward through an incredible story by means of masterful writing, all the while keeping a firm hold on your attention. Given that this is a true story, to say that it is a truly remarkable one would be a great understatement.
Tanya tells of her life at fifteen, and her adventures as a highly intelligent thrill seeker/con artist. With high-speed chases, close encounters with criminals and the law, and scenarios that will set you on the edge of your seat, there is never a dull moment. There is also a fair share of irony to be had between it all that often blurs the lines between good morals and corruption in our society.
This is a story that would make a great movie, as it's smart, filled with action, thrills, and just the right recipe of elements to appeal to just about anyone, whether you’re a saint at heart or the more mischievously-inclined. A very worthwhile and enjoyable read that will stay in my collection to read again and an author to watch!
