〉Mulholland Books acquired the novel in a mid-six figure deal.
Scott Reardon has hit the market with his debut novel, THE PROMETHEUS MAN. The story follows a failed government program to genetically engineer the perfect soldier. But, when the test subjects starts eliminating the people who worked on the program, the CIA puts together a team to take him down. Pitched as The Bourne Identity meets The 500, this buzzed about property is currently being shopped to buyers across the globe.
The novel is set to be published in January 2017 by Mulholland Books, an imprint of Little, Brown and Company which specializes in suspenseful fiction, from crime novels to thrillers to spy stories, who nabbed the work in a reported mid-six figure deal. The book is intended to be the first in a planned series. Donald Maas Literary Agency is repping the literary rights, while ICM is repping the film and television rights.
The thrilling story centers on CIA Agent Tom Blake, who’s landed on a major case: tracking a physically augmented man who’s left a pile of bodies in his wake. There’s just one problem. The man using Agent Blake’s identity is not Agent Blake. He’s Tom Reese. He’s a gifted college dropout without a home who’s looking for his brother Eric’s killer. He stole Agent Blake’s identity two months ago, shortly after the federal government let Eric Reese’s case go cold. And soon everyone will discover that Tom Reese has also been altered—as the last, secret test subject of Project Prometheus.
Reardon is repped by Donald Maas Literary Agency and ICM.
