Nick Heller is tough, smart, and stubborn.  And in his line of work, it's essential.  Trained in the Special Forces, Nick is a high-powered intelligence investigator--exposing secrets that powerful people would rather keep hidden.  He's a guy you don't want to mess with.  He's also the man you call when you need a problem fixed.

Desperate, with nowhere else to run, Nick's nephew, Gabe makes that call one night.  After being attacked in Georgetown, his mother, Lauren, lies in a coma, and his step-dad, Roger, Nick's brother, has vanished without a trace.

Nick and Roger have been on the outs since the arrest, trial, and conviction of their father, the notorious "fugitive financier," Victor Heller.  Where Nick strayed from the path, Roger followed their father's footsteps into the corporate world.  Now, as Nick searches for his brother, he's on a collision course with one of the most powerful corporations in the world--and they will stop at nothing to protect their secrets.

    A good read. Well done thriller!
  • Why rag on conservatives and Christians?

    By guerojefe
    I enjoyed this book right up until Mr. Finder succumbed to labeling one of the negative characters as a right wing, born-again Christian. Why did he feel the need to misrepresent the ideology and core belief system of millions of people? Couldn't Finder just have left out that part? I don't see how omitting such derogatory and stereotypical comments would have altered the plot in any way. This kind of bigoted crap is becoming very tiresome, uncivil, and childish. I give the book five stars for a decent plot but take away two stars for being a kool aid drinker. After two books, I was starting to like Mr Finder's work but he's lost me now.
