Mr. Ahearn's first advice is if you really are planning to disappear, don't buy this book with a traceable credit card or online account. If you're looking for a cracking good read with great stories from the adventures of skip-tracing, that is also amazingly well-written (how long has it been since you've seen the word "panache" used in a sentence properly?), this is the book for you. Not only that, Mr Ahearn sounds like he's sitting in front of you in a restaurant or a tavern somewhere, spinning his yarns. I highly recommend this as a great read.
