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.

Praise for Paranoia (movie tie-in edition)

"The first jet-propelled thriller of 2004... Go along for the ride... twisting, stealthily plotted."
- Janet Maslin, The New York Times (1/15/04)

"This year's first contender for Page Turner of the Year is Joseph Finder's Paranoia... It's as if he has taken Sun Tzu's Art of War as a blueprint to concoct a terrific tale... It's riveting stuff... The corporate thriller just got an upgrade." USA Today (1/29/04)

"Masterfully told and thoroughly engrossing..." - People Magazine

"Here it is, readers, the perfect thriller for the post-Enron/Martha Stewart era."
- New Orleans Times-Picayune (1/25/04)

"Provides more chills than any ghoul with a chain saw." - Entertainment Weekly (A-)

This novel is the real deal: a thriller that actually will keep readers up way past their bedtimes. . . . Relentless suspense . . . A first-rate surprise ending packs a wallop . . . The most entertaining thriller of 2004.
- Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"Don't start this book at 8:00 p.m. or you'll be up all night. Finder's latest is a fun read with a hip narrator, an engaging story set in a world rarely seen in thrillers, and great suspense. Highly recommended."
- Ronnie H. Terpening, Univ. of Arizona, Tucson, Library Journal (Starred Review)

"One of those all-too-rare but absolutely unforgettable books that rewrites the rules for contemporary thrillers. Finder's loyal fans have long known what a terrific writer he is, but with Paranoia he has written what is destined to be a classic of suspense fiction. Paranoia is a knock-out - a fresh, original and compelling novel that is impossible to put down."
- Daniel Silva, author of The Confessor

"The real thing - a sleek, hip and fast-paced thriller that gets its hooks in you from the very first page. It's a terrific combination of nail-biting suspense, great characters with depth and real heart, and a fresh, original voice." - Lisa Scottoline, author of Dead Ringer

"Paranoia is an incredibly clever novel. I love Joseph Finder's writing, and this time, he surpasses himself with some of the best dialogue and characterizations I've read in a long time. If there's such a thing as an instant classic, this is it." - Nelson DeMille, author of Up Country

"Crisp, hard, funny, and smart." - Robert B. Parker, author of Back Story

"Oh yeah, this is good, really good. Sharp, wicked, funny, exciting. I've been saying for years that the best, most imaginative writing is being done in the genres of crime and suspense. Joseph Finder's Paranoia is proof positive."
- Andrew Klavan, author of True Crimes

"Combines a fresh voice, terrific characters, and high-octane suspense. Finder catapults himself into the front ranks of contemporary thriller writers."
- Harlan Coben, author of No Second Chance

"The archetype of the thriller in its contemporary form... The novel's great strength is its fetishistic attention to the idioms and buzzwords of the tech business... late in the book we discover how completely we have been fooled, and with some real escapist pleasure."
- New Yorker

"Provides more chills than any ghoul with a chain saw."
- Entertainment Weekly

"Edge of your seat action... You'll think twice about who's watching you at work!"
- Washington Post (1/18/04)

"People are not who or what they seem. ...The story is all about deception, and Finder has done his homework. ... "Paranoia" is a lot of flash and dazzle, but Finder also has a good ear for dialogue.... it is a lot of fun. And there's nothing wrong with that."
- Denver Post (1/18/04)
