Geiger is the Best At What He Does

  • May 9, 2012
Rating:
+4

Gieger is great at what he does.  He is an expert at "information retrieval," meaning he uses a combination of physical and mental means to garner secrets from people.  He has set up a business with his partner Harry who is good with computers.  The two agree to take on a job to find out what an art dealer has done with a stolen painting.  At the last minute the client substitutes the dealer's 12 year old son as the one to work on.

Geiger decides this is too much and attacks the client and takes the boy away to someplace safe.  This sets off a chain of events and Geiger and Harry find out that the people wanting the boy interrogated are very dangerous.

The book is a study into the mind set of Geiger and what made him into the "cold fish" he is.  It is intriguing to know what happened and though the author provides some clues, we do not know all.  Also, Harry has a sister who is now mentally incapacitated and we would like to know a lot more as to what happened to her and how it influenced Harry.  The author sets up a great tale with tension that builds to the end and it is the fact that I wanted to know more about the main characters that stopped me from giving it a full five stars.
