What would you do if life handed you a double? Danny Lynch didn’t sign up for this, but right now this line cook gig is all he’s got. Three weeks ago he was gainfully employed in Afghanistan and doing fine. Now he’s back in New York City and lucky to be employed at all, even if that means dicing carrots for ten hours a day in a stuffy Midtown restaurant. The job’s one saving grace is a sight line from his prep station in the kitchen to a coveted corner table in the main room. For Danny this is a window into the lives of Barcadero’s flashy clientele—which, he soon discovers, includes a man who happens to look exactly like him. Teddy Trager is a young venture capitalist, the visionary founder of billion-dollar investment firm Paradime Capital. He has everything Danny never knew he wanted—a cashmere suit, a gorgeous girlfriend, a sleek sports car—and the closer Danny looks at Trager, the more fixated he becomes. A new stand-alone novel from the award-winning author of Limitless, Paradime is a harrowing story of a twenty-first-century identity crisis that thrills from the start.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Suspend your disbelief, and go along for a superfast, thoroughly enjoyable roller-coaster ride with Danny.” Booklist
“The story maintains a deliciously creepy atmosphere, with dark humor as Danny manages to sneak into Teddy’s life. The plot keeps moving with plenty of effective surprises, and the final chapters successfully navigate to an even darker tone.” Kirkus Reviews
“A doppelganger tale of conspiracy and paranoia which starts in fourth gear, quickly revis up into fifth, and thereafter roars along like an Exocet in agony…Suffice to say that it’s his most inventive novel since The Dark Fields—which was adapted into the movie Limitless―and arguably a more fascinating psychological-thriller-cum-tragedy.” Crime Always Pays
