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.

Scott Reardon is a graduate of Georgetown University and Northwestern Law. He currently works at a venture capital firm in Los Angeles. The Prometheus Man is his first novel.

“Reardon takes the reader on a wild ride through what could be Hell’s theme park. . . . The Prometheus Man electrifies. But it transcends mere entertainment; it raises profound questions about the uses of science and technology.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

“A winning international thriller that is as smart as it is suspenseful. Part Robert Ludlum, part Michael Crichton, with a contemporary spin all Scott Reardon’s own, The Prometheus Man is flat-out a great read!” —Christopher Reich, New York Times bestselling author of Rules of Deception

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 bestselling author of The Informant

“The Prometheus Man is a phenomenal debut, full of non-stop action and thrills. With this bioengineered twist on Jason Bourne, Reardon offers a dark vision of covert work that may be closer to the present than we think.” —Matthew Quirk, bestselling author of The 500 and Cold Barrel Zero

“A debut thriller that succeeds . . . Many high-octane action scenes Reardon executes with skill.” —Kirkus Reviews
