Publisher's Summary

A man with no identity...hunting a man without limits.

When a pile of bodies is found in Paris, CIA agent Tom Blake hustles his way onto a major case: tracking a man with enhanced abilities, the test subject of a secret government program.

There's just one problem: the man using Agent Blake's identity is not Agent Blake. He's Tom Reese, a man without a family or a home.

Reese is searching for his brother's killer. He stole Agent Blake's identity two months ago and has bluffed his way onto the team investigating his only lead. But his time as a CIA agent is accelerating toward its expiration date.

Soon the CIA will find out that Agent Blake is in two places at once. Soon the augmented man will come looking for him. And soon both will discover that Tom Reese carries a secret even he doesn't know about.

He is the last test subject of Project Prometheus.

What the Critics Say

"Reardon has packed his debut with action, plot twists, and well-sketched characters.... Recommend this one to readers of John Burdett's The Bangkok Asset." (Booklist)

"The Prometheus Man is a bullet-paced thriller that provokes fear, anger, and sympathy simultaneously, and makes us hope the world never lets this particular fiction turn into reality." (Thomas Perry, Edgar Award winner and best-selling author of The Informant)

"The Prometheus Man is not only a stellar debut, it's a rare find in the reading landscape: a fast-paced techno-thriller with well-realized characters and a beating heart. A lot of people are running around claiming to be the next Michael Crichton. Scott Reardon actually has the writing chops to pull it off." (Brad Parks, Shamus Award-winning author of Say Nothing)

    Story
    "Cool but lacking something"

    Cool story and good narration.

    I can't put my finger on it, but it feels like this book is missing something. That void is bugging the hell out of me, and leaving me feeling unsatisfied.

    Pizazz? Panache? A certain je ne sais quoi...?

    At the end, I feel like a fish that was caught and released, and having fishy-existential crisis.
