Book Review: Paranoia by Joseph Finder

Adam Cassidy is a half-assed employee of Wyatt Telecom. He manages to hack into the corporate system to throw a retirement party for an assistant loading dock manager as a prank. When caught by the owner and his Security Manager, Adam is given the proverbial "offer he can't refuse". Wyatt Telecom has a competitor: Goddard Telecom. In exchange for not prosecuting Adam, Wyatt grooms him as an espionage agent to infiltrate Goddard Telecom and feed back information.

But problems seep into Adam's life. He turns out to be too good, and ends up as the right-hand man of Jock Goddard. He begins to develop a loyalty to Goddard, while still obligated (at the risk of prosecution) to feed back information to Wyatt.

This book is told in the 1st person through the main character's eyes.

I'm fairly intelligent, and until the final two chapters of this novel, I did not see the end coming. Seriously. It is that good.

This is a riveting thriller. I enjoyed it immensely. I look forward to reading more of Joseph Finder's books.
