By the New York Times bestselling author Jospeh Finder, Paranoia is an exciting thriller set in a post-boom 21st century economy.

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 and 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. 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 himself in way over his head, where nothing is what it seems and no one can really be trusted. And then the REAL nightmare begins.....

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


Praise for Paranoia

Paranoia is a knock-out--a fresh, original and compelling novel that is impossible to put down.” —Daniel Silva

“A fresh voice, terrific characters, and high-octane suspense.” —Harlan Coben, author of Tell No One

Paranoia is the real thing--a sleek, hip and fast-paced thriller that gets its hooks in you from the very first page.” —Lisa Scottoline, author of Dead Ringer

“Sharp, wicked, funny, exciting.” —Andrew Klavan, author of True Crimes

“Scott Brick narrates flawlessly, using one voice that manages not only to portray Adam's satiric sense of humor but also to capture each of the many other characters' personalities. By using a variety of tempos and modulating his voice, Brick maintains tension and builds nonstop suspense. This great performance is a perfect fit for the writing.” —Audio File

“This kind of stuff is Brick's Forte. He handles suspense with just the right touch.” —Philadelphia Inquirer
