Free Book on Kinde: Paranoia

Paranoia by Joseph Finder is available for free (it was $2.99 last December when I purchased it).

Book Description

By the New York Times bestselling author of High Crimes, Paranoia is a Grisham-esque thriller set in a post-boom 21st century economy. With his personal life in decay, a late twenty-something gets caught in one stupid act that spirals out of control, threatening to ruin the lives of thousands.

Adam Cassidy is twenty-six and a low level employee at a high-tech corporation who hates his job. When he manipulates the system to do something nice for a friend, he finds himself charged with a crime. Corporate Security gives him a choice: prison -- or become a spy in the headquarters of their chief competitor, Trion Systems.

They train him and feed him inside information. Now at Trion, he's a star, skyrocketing to the top. He finds he has talents he never knew he possessed. He's rich, drives a Porsche, lives in a fabulous apartment, and works directly for the CEO. He's dating the girl of his dreams.

His life is perfect. All he has to do to keep it that way is betray everyone he cares about and everything he believes in. But when he tries to break off from his controllers, he finds himself in way over his head, where nothing is what it seems and no one can really be trusted. And then the real nightmare begins...

St. Martin's Press has released a new version of Paranoia, by Joseph Finder, for the Kindle (see my previous post for a synopsis). Rather than updating the existing ASIN, though, they removed that book from the store and added the new one - so you can purchase it again (it's currently still free, although they claim it's list price is $24.99) and have both editions in your library.

I've looked at both and although the number of locations increased by approximately 50%, the formatting of the text itself seems the same (from a very cursory glance), but there are some differences. The new edition doesn't have a cover (it has a plain bookplate instead, which is marked as the "beginning" of the book), no table of contents (there is a list of chapters on the last page, but it isn't linked at all) and is missing the "e-book information" pages at the tail end of the first edition. What's new is a fairly long sample from Finder's upcoming new book, Vanished ($14.29 pre-order). All in all, this newest edition looks more like a first stab at the book, rather than an update, but you may want to pick it up just for the sample.
