I've enjoyed all of Joseph Finder's books but Paranoia is unquestionably his best! The plot is very fast-paced, the characters are well-developed and multi-dimensional and the suspense involving corporate spying is non-stop. If this isn't enough to make you want to rush right out to get a copy of this compelling thriller, be aware that Finder provides twists and turns that will keep you intrigued and surprised right up to the very end. Be prepared for a very exciting and fun reading experience. Paranoia will keep you glued to the edge of your seat. It is one of the most enjoyable books I've read in quite awhle. Paranoia deserves to be at the top of the bestseller lists when it comes out in late January 2004 and it should help Joseph Finder become one of the elite group of today's popular writers.

Ending couldn't possibly be any worse!

Seriously. I thought that Finder had a good thing going with Paranoia, and then I got to the end. Be prepared, it is a monster letdown. The story was quick paced and well written, even if it was a bit too cliche' at times, but to end the story with the reader disliking ...

The story was quick paced and well written, even if it was a bit too cliche' at times, but to end the story with the reader disliking every single character in the book seems like a bad career move for Finder. It was so disappointing, I'll never invest a minute of my time reading another one of his efforts. Can I have my money - and time- back please??

    Surprise ending? Ummm, I don't think so

    A decent read, I will admit, but a surprise ending? Maybe if you haven't read very many thrillers in the last five years . . . Personally, I had it figured out very early (100 pages or so) and continued reading mostly to make sure it ended the way i thought it would. And since the ending was really the point of the book, I guess I felt a bit let down. I don't really have a desire to read any more of his books, although I did get through this one pretty quickly.

    Lost Its Flavor

    What started out as a thriller turned into a downer. Through the first half of the book I cared about Adam Cassidy but then the story hit a brick wall. It became predictable and skimming the pages were more interesting than the details.

    Couldn't finish

    It started out looking promising and I give most books at least 100 pages to pull me in. I couldn't help being disappointed especially after hearing so many nice recommendations for this author. My taste runs more toward cozies.
