New York Times bestselling author.

Nick Heller is tough, smart, and stubborn. And in his line of work, those traits are essential. Trained in the Special Forces, Nick is an intelligence investigator - his job: to expose secrets powerful people would rather keep hidden. He's also the man to call when you need a problem fixed. Desperate, Nick's nephew Gabe, calls Nick. Gabe's mother, Lauren, has been attacked and lies in a coma, and his stepfather Roger, Nick's brother, has vanished without a trace.

Nick and Roger have been on the outs since their father, the "fugitive financier" went to jail, and Roger followed in his father's footsteps. Now Nick's search for his brother puts him on a collision course with one of the most powerful corporations in the world - and it will protect its secrets at any cost.

"Cliffhangers galore, the fascinating tradecraft of corporate espionage, and an engrossing story will propel readers through this outstanding thriller. Highly recommended as a great summer read." - Library Journal (Starred Review)

Overall good, but took longer to read than his other books I've read. Too many names, too many companies for me to keep track of and remember the relationship they all have to each other.

This is the 3rd book I've read by Finder - enjoyed the other two more. It's a good plot but somewhat heavy on the descriptions and IT details. The big question: is Roger held captive, alive or dead.

"After an assault leaves his estranged brother nowhere to be found and his sister-in-law in the hospital, corporate espionage investigator (and former Special Forces soldier) Nick Heller begins looking into the attack - and uncovers the sorts of secrets that a very powerful, very secretive corporation would go to great lengths to keep hidden. With all the action and suspense of a thriller, plus enough corporate wrongdoing to chill your blood, this series debut is "outstanding" (Library Journal). Follow it up with the 2nd and most recent in the series, Buried Secrets." Thrillers and Suspense December 2012 Newsletter
