“Like The Bourne Identity turned inside-out.”—Christopher Farnsworth, author of Blood Oath

This is a war. It’s been going on for generations. If you’re lucky, it will be your generation that ends it…

At least that’s what the young ones are told before they turn eighteen. At that age they become fair game, and must kill or be killed in a secret war between two distinct sides—one good, one evil. The only unknown is which side is which. Hidden in plain view, the battles are fought through assassinations disguised as accidents or the work of senseless thugs.

Joseph has a particular talent for such killings. Never questioning an order, all he needs is a name. But when a job goes wrong and he’s sent away on a punishingly dangerous assignment, he meets a girl. Her name is Maria. And for the first time Joseph has a reason to live…outside the war.

Now Joseph must run from those who fought by his side, quickly discovering that the only thing more dangerous than fighting the war is attempting to leave it.

From the Trade Paperback edition.


“A generations-long war that’s claimed thousands of lives, waged in perfect secrecy beneath the clueless noses of people like me? Oh, hell yeah. Children of Paranoia is a claustrophobic, relentless, fascinating ride that will have you eyeballing everyone you pass in the street. I can’t wait for the sequel.”—Marcus Sakey, author of The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes

"A gripping journey into a secret war where literally anyone could kill you. Like The Bourne Identity turned inside-out, his protagonist navigates a world where banal choices like going to the ATM have life-and-death consequences. Filled with sharp plotting and vivid action, this book will stay with you long after you’ve raced to the end."—Chris Farnsworth, author of Blood Oath
