Overview

From Alan Glynn, the award-winning author of Limitless, comes a novel of a twenty-first-century identity crisis that will thrill you from page one.

Danny Lynch didn t sign up for this, but right now, it s all he s got. Three weeks ago, he was working at a chow hall in Afghanistan and more or less doing fine. Sure, this meant living in a war zone, but he was never in the line of fire and, frankly, the money was hard to resist. Then Danny saw something he shouldn t have, and now he s back in New York City, haunted by what sent him home 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? 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 some of Barcadero s flashy clientele and one evening, he sees a man who looks exactly like him.

Teddy Trager is the visionary founder of the billion-dollar investment firm Paradime Capital. He has everything Danny never knew he wanted cashmere suits, a sleek sports car . . . privilege, power and the closer Danny looks at Trager the more fixated he becomes.

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. (Aug.)
