From Back Cover:

"A Must-See. The Best Thriller I've Seen In Ages."

Your name... credit cards... life. It's the ultimate identity theft. An elusive serial killer has for 20 years assumed his victims' identities. But now there's a breakthrough. And FBI profiler Illeana Scott is assigned to the case.

Angelina Jolie portrays Scott in an edgy cat-and-mouse thriller directed by D.J. Caruso and also starring Ethan Hawke, Kiefer Sutherland and Olivier Martinez. It's Scott's job to know what makes a killer tick. To anticipate his moves. To close off countermoves. But somehow this killer knows even more about Scott. "You'll be guessing all the way till the end, and you'll still be wrong," Greg Russell of WDWB-TV/Detroit says. It's that unpredictability which makes Taking Lives so very, very right for thriller fans.

My Comments:

A cool, fast-paced thriller with a strong cast and plenty of twists.
