Publisher Comments:

“Jet-propelled...this twisting, stealthily plotted story...weaves a tangled and ingeniously enveloping web...[with a] killer twist for the end.”—The New York Times

It was only a prank: diverting cash from Wyatt Telecoms executive slush fund to throw a retirement bash for a member of the loading dock crew. But when corporate security catches up with Adam Cassidy, a low-ambition junior staffer at the high-tech behemoth, they call it something else: embezzlement.

“A terrific tale…riveting.”—USA Today

Ruthless CEO Nick Wyatt is impressed by Adams scheming, and offers him one way out—take  on the role of a rising corporate hotshot and infiltrate Wyatts rival, Trion Systems. His mission is to get close to Trions legendary founder Jock Goddard, and his ultra-secret “Project Aurora,” and report back to Wyatt.

“Nail-biting suspense.”—Dallas Morning News

With Wyatt pulling the strings and a dramatically improved identity, Adam is set up as Trions new boy genius. Suddenly, hes got a sweet new Porsche, a closet full of $1,500 suits, and even a sexy woman in his life. But its all just a mirage, because Adam is about to learn that nothing is what it seems and that it isnt paranoia...everyone is out to get him...

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

PARANOIA
Joseph Finder
 
Adam Cassidy is twenty-six and a low level employee at a high-tech corporation who hates his job. When he manipulates the system to do something nice for a friend, he finds himself charged with a crime. Corporate Security gives him a choice: prison - or become a spy in the headquarters of their chief competitor, Trion Systems.

They train him. They feed him inside information. Now, at Trion, he's a star, skyrocketing to the top. He finds he has talents he never knew he possessed. He's rich, drives a Porsche, lives in a fabulous apartment, and works directly for the CEO. He's dating the girl of his dreams.

His life is perfect. And all he has to do to keep it that way is betray everyone he cares about and everything he believes in.

But when he tries to break off from his controllers, he finds he's in way over his head, trapped in a world in which nothing is as it seems and no one can really be trusted.

And then the real nightmare begins...

From the writer whose novels have been called "thrilling" (New York Times) and "dazzling" (USA Today) comes an electrifying new novel, a roller-coaster ride of suspense that will hold the reader hostage until the final, astonishing twist.

 
Now a major motion-picture starring, Harrison Ford, Liam Hemsworth and Gary Oldman.
