Description

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 page one.

        June 6, 2016
        Edgar-finalist Glynn (Limitless) updates The Prince and the Pauper in this breezy thriller set in the financial world. Danny Lynch, an Iraq and Afghanistan vet with mental-health problems, receives a letter that eventually leads to a job at an upscale Manhattan restaurant, where he spies his look-alike, Teddy Trager, a venture capitalist who runs Paradime Capital. Danny becomes obsessed with his doppelganger and quits his job, much to his girlfriend’s dismay. After Danny succeeds in impersonating Teddy at business meetings and in sexual dalliances with Teddy’s girlfriend, he boldly forges business documents. Then he meets Teddy face to face. When Teddy is killed, Danny is recruited to pose as Teddy to maintain Paradime’s business deals. But of course, Danny is just a puppet. By the time Danny realizes what he has lost and who is manipulating his new life and identity, readers will be several steps ahead of him. Only in the last two chapters does Glynn put an interesting spin on this familiar conceit. Agent: Antony Harwood, Antony Harwood Ltd.
