"The plot is beguiling and the characters are exceptionally bright, complex and realistic ..."
Word Branch Publishing announces the re-release of Danny Este's previously self-published book, The Paranoid Thief. This fast-paced novel has gained a considerable following both because of Este's vibrant writing style and the skillful extrapolation of the idea of a society that values money more than people.
In the year 2050, the United States is owned by corporations, and citizens are mere commodities, exploited to make the already wealthy CEOs richer. Professional hacker and cat burglar, Randolph McCann, has skills sought after by average people seeking relief from the oppressive corporate system.
His newest client, a powerful city official, murders a family and leaves damning evidence aimed at him. As the court's lethal injection creeps through his veins, Randolph vows eternal vengeance on the man responsible.
He awakens to find he's been kidnapped from his execution by a corporation that uses death-row criminals to gain political power through theft and assassination. He's assigned Major Jill Wander as a partner, a tough ex-military sniper with a dual personality who is also wrongly accused on the public record.
When a job goes south, they join forces off the grid. With Jill's help, Randolph evades law enforcement and closes in on the man who double-crossed him. He can clear Jill's name at the same time--if only he can keep her from killing the wrong people.
