Waiting on Wednesday: Fake ID by Lamar Giles

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s can’t wait to read selection is
Fake ID by Lamar Giles.
Publication Date: January 21st 2014

Fake ID - HarperCollins
Nick Pearson is pretending to be someone he isn’t. Not high school pretending. Witness Protection pretending. And the #1 rule is “stay low-key”. But, when his sole friend Eli dies in the school’s journalism room under mysterious circumstances, and Nick stumbles upon the conspiracy Eli planned on exposing, staying low-key takes a backseat to staying alive.

Newspaper Nerd Eli had a secret, an in-the-works story codenamed “Whispertown”. And it’s got a lot of folks interested. Like corrupt cops, the town’s shady mayor, and certain high-ranking government officials. Teaming with Eli’s estranged (and gorgeous) sister, Nick sets out to unravel the mystery and still maintain his cover. He’ll have to use all the deviant skills he’s gained from his racketeering dad, assassin godfather, and their Serbian gangster boss to find the truth. However, each clue brings him closer to answers he may not want. Whispertown is bigger than he could have ever imagined, and in its shadow stands a killer…a killer Nick fears may be his own father.
Synopsis from goodreads.com.

When I chanced across Fake ID on goodreads, I immediately wanted to throw my self-imposed no-buying-books-this-month rule over board. Fortunate for my purse, much less so for me, there's quite a wait for this book's release. The synopsis however promises a thrilling read with Nick trying to solve his best friend's murder whilst keeping his witness protection cover. Secrets, suspense and mystery all rolled into one; that's surely worth the wait.

Have you picked up a book you came across purely by chance lately? Tell us in the comments along with your waiting on choice.

Sounds like an interesting book. I often read books about settings I'm not that familiar with but I have to have some interest in them. I am pickier about time periods of settings.
