Finder at his Best

  • Jun 17, 2011
Rating:

Joseph Finder newest novel, Buried Secrets, is his best.  And that is saying something.
 
The second in Finder’s Nick Heller series finds Nick working out of his home town, Boston.  There he’s urgently summoned by an old family friend who needs his help.
 
His eighteen-year-old daughter, Alexandra, has been kidnapped. Her abduction was sophisticated.   Executed with precision; no trace evidence is left. Alexandra, whom Nick has known since she was an infant, is held prisoner in an underground crypt, a camera trained on her.  Her suffering streams live over the internet for all to see.   
 
This tale has everything: hedge fund operators, an uber-patroitic lawyer, zealous FBI agents, former lovers and shady investors.
 
If you start this thriller, be prepared to write-off the rest of the day.  If you love thrillers like I do, you won’t put it down until you reach its last period.
 
Finder is one of this country's best thriller writers.  His previous previous thrillers, most recently the New York Times bestsellers Paranoia, Company Man, and Killer Instinct were great.  Buried Secrets propels his talent to a new level.   

Five Stars
