Books about people starting over
January 7, 2013 7:59 AM Subscribe
Can you recommend any good books (or films, but I prefer reading) in which a major plot point is the main character dropping out of their own life and starting again in a new location under a new identity?

Double Jeopardy, the Tommy Lee Jones film, and a certain book that sold quite well in 2012 are two that I saw/read recently, so I want more. I have long loved the idea that disappearing and starting over is an option, and good books that also describe some of the nuts and bolts of how they achieve that always interest me. Thanks for any and all recommendations, I have my library card to hand ready to go look for em!
