"Common sense tells us that everyone experiences moments in time when they feel as if their life is falling apart." Thus begins J. Dalton Jennings' darkly comic thriller, set in New York City.
Nick Ashford, a successful hedge fund manager, owns an exclusive Park Avenue apartment, has a beautiful wife and thinks the world is his oyster. That is, until his identity is stolen and a stranger takes over his life. With his very existence shredded, Nick learns he is a hunted man, a man gone missing, a man with a different name. Convinced he is the victim of an elaborate hoax, meant to punish him for past sins, Nick wanders the city in the middle of winter, with little food or rest. Enduring terrifying encounters, he gains help from an unlikely cast of characters, including an eccentric computer hacker, and is catapulted into a world of intense digital intrigue, hairbreadth escapes, cold-blooded murder, and the bizarre world of cosplay. An exhilarating novel, The Disassembled Man explores the human capacity for personal growth, the nature of identity, the intimate place technology holds in our daily lives, and takes the reader on a journey like no other.
