"Imagine a drug that made your brain function with perfect efficiency, tapping into your deepest resources of creativity and drive, releasing all the passive knowledge you'd ever accumulated ... Eddie Spinola is on such a drug. It's called MDT-48, and it's success in a bottle--a designer drug that's redesigning his life. MDT is helping Eddie to become the kind of man he's always dreamed of being, but as he morphs into the picture of intellectual and financial success on the outside, he starts falling apart on the inside--headaches, blackouts, violent outbursts. But now it's too late to go back; he's hooked, and the supply that once seemed limitless is starting to dwindle"--From publisher description

"A helicopter crash kills six random passengers off the coast of Ireland. A mercenary working for a private security contractor in the Congo starts a bloody gun battle, endangering the valuable package he is assigned to protect. An Irish politician makes a risky gambit to revive his career, while protecting one of his darkest secrets. The last thing Jimmy Gilroy, a hungry young Dublin journalist, expected when hired to write a hack biography of a dead starlet was a Pulitzer-worthy scoop. Soon, however, he stumbles upon a bizarre nexus of coincidence between his subject and these disparate people and events around the world, a real story of frightening reach and consequence--one that could cost him his life. Set against a vividly drawn world of commerce, corrupt politics, and international intrigue, Alan Glynn's Bloodland is a riveting paranoid thriller of uncommon depth and page-turning suspense."--

"Danny Lynch didn't sign up for this, but right now, this line cook gig is all he's got. Things were fine more or less until three weeks ago, when he was suddenly terminated from his job as a civilian contractor. Now his ex-employer is on his back, and he's lucky to have found the job he has: chopping vegetables at a stuffy Midtown restaurant, for ten, mind-numbing hours almost every single day. His saving grace is a sight-line from the kitchen to the dining area that allows him a window into the lives of Barcadero's flashy clientele which, he soon discovers, includes a man who is the mirror image of himself. Teddy Trager is a young venture capitalist, the co-founder of a billion dollar empire called Paradime Capital. He has everything Danny never knew he wanted a cashmere suit, a gorgeous girlfriend and the more Danny finds out about him, the more fixated he becomes. Told in a voice that echoes Edgar Finalist Alan Glynn's debut novel that became the basis for the major-motion-picture-turned-CBS-series, Limitless Paradime is a harrowing story of identity crisis in the twenty-first century that thrills from page one. - Orphan Black by way of Alfred Hitchcock"--

What would you do if life handed you a double? Danny Lynch didn't sign up for this, but right now this line cook gig is all he's got. Three weeks ago he was gainfully employed and doing fine. Now he's back in New York City 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 is 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 Barcadero's flashy clientele--which, he soon discovers, includes a man who happens to look exactly like him. Teddy Trager is a young venture capitalist, the visionary founder of billion-dollar investment firm Paradime Capital. He has everything Danny never knew he wanted--a cashmere suit, a gorgeous girlfriend, a sleek sports car--and the closer Danny looks at Trager, the more fixated he becomes. A new stand-alone novel from the award-winning author of Limitless, Paradime is a harrowing story of a twenty-first-century identity crisis that thrills from page one

A helicopter crash off the coast of Ireland sends unexpected ripples through the international community in this intricate new thriller from the author of Winterland and Limitless (now a major motion picture). Susie Monaghan was on the cusp of stardom when her life was cut short by a tragic helicopter crash. After a full investigation, her death was ruled an accident: case closed. But a hungry young journalist named Jimmy Gilroy isn't buying the official story. Before dying, Susie's path had crossed with an unlikely gallery of powerful men: an ex-prime minister with a carefully guarded secret; the businessman brother of a U.S. senator angling for the Oval Office; and a billionaire investor with his eye on an extremely rare commodity. Might there also be a link between Susie's death and a deranged security contractor operating in Congo?

A burnout at thirty-five, months behind on his book, low on cash, and something of a loser, Eddie Spinola could use a shot in the arm. One day he randomly runs into Vernon, his ex-wife's brother, and his ex-dealer. Now employed by a shadowy pharmaceutical company, Vernon has something that might help: a new designer drug that stimulates brain function. One pill and Eddie is hooked. His book is finished within days; he learns and synthesizes information at a frightening rate; and he can go a long time without sleep or food. Naturally, he begins to play the stock market. But when Vernon turns up dead, Eddie makes off with the only stash of the drug in existence. Then come the side effects: black-outs, blinding headaches, and violent outbursts he can't seem to remember. Alan Glynn's Limitless is a high-concept thriller for this Adderall age, and a haunting meditation on the allure and the curse of human potential
