VanishedLarge Print - 2009
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)
