About the Book

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.

    Alan Glynn is a graduate of Trinity College Dublin. He has worked in magazine publishing in New York and as as EFL teacher in Italy. His debut novel, The Dark Fields, was released in 2011 as the hit movie Limitless, which went to # 1 on both sides of the Atlantic. His most recent novel, Bloodland, was the Irish Crime Fiction Book of the Year 2011 and was Edgar nominated in the US.

“An enthralling psychological thriller-cum-tragedy ... All told, it’s a pulsating tale from one of the most inventive practitioners working in contemporary crime fiction, a novel that pounds to the rhythms of the conventional thriller but employs its tropes to divert its protagonist, and the reader, down some very unusual dark alleyways.”
- Declan Burke, Irish Times
