Paranoia Summary

Paranoia by Joseph Finder

PARANOIA is set in the modern-day corporate environment and focuses on a lazy but bright young exec at middle-management level. When a colleague leaves after many years' loyal service, his departure is allowed to pass unnoticed by senior management. The young exec is appalled at the way his colleague is treated and plots revenge against his company. He stumbles upon a secret company 'slush fund' and manages to gain access to it. Using the stolen funds he throws a fantastically lavish leaving party for his ex-colleague. Inevitably he gets caught, and is offered a Faustian pact by senior management - he can serve a lengthy jail term for embezzlement, or he can infiltrate a high-tech rival. As he becomes a rising star at his new company, his loyalties become divided and ultimately he seeks to break the bonds with his former company...PARANOIA is an acid portrayal of how people act in the modern-day corporate environment.This gripping novel taps into both the basic wish-fulfillment fantasy about ambition and success and the post-Enron disillusionment with big business.

Paranoia Reviews

'Joseph Finder's rocket-propelled caper 'Paranoia' is definitely for those who prefer their action to be non-stop.' -- WATERSTONES BOOKS QUARTERLY '...hip, perceptive and slippery ... and a plot to die for. When I got to the end, I put the book down and clapped my hands and shouted 'Bravo!'... it is the unbearable tension that starts bending back the plot like a readied catapult that really makes this one hell of a book.' -- Ali Karim SHOTS MAGAZINE 'Brilliant... this one really is hard to put down and will be responsible for many 'Oh my God I can hear the Dawn Chorus' moments.' GOOD BOOK GUIDE '...an unusual and smartly written corporate thriller.' MORNING STAR 'Double and triple bluff, cliff-hangers and intrigue aplenty in this splendid thriller set in the ghastly world of corporate America. It's a clever plot, a new take on the thriller, full of well-researched detail.' PUBLISHING NEWS 'The most searing corporate thriller since John Grisham's The Firm ... has already attracted phenomenal praise in the US.' -- Personal Choice PUBLISHING NEWS
