After a stint as a private contractor in Afghanistan, Danny Lynch is back in New York. But nothing's easy. Work is hard to find and his girlfriend owes more than $30,000 in student loans. Danny is also haunted by something he witnessed at the base - a fact that could ultimately destroy him. Then he spots Teddy Trager, tech visionary and billionaire. These two men couldn't be more different - except for one thing: in appearance, they're identical. Danny becomes obsessed with Trager, and before long this member of the ninety-nine per cent is passing undetected into the gilded realm of the one per cent. But what does Danny find there? Who does he become? And is there a route home? From the prize winning author of Limitless, Paradime is a novel for fans of the great '70s conspiracy thrillers, rebooted for today's ever-globalising world.
'What they really don't need ... is some emotional, guilt-ridden wreck of a guy walking the streets of Manhattan like a goddamned time bomb.'
