I liked this book very much. It was very fast paced.

Lots of twist, makes for interesting reading. Even with
the ending we all knew. this novel still had plenty of suspense.

There are few books that you feel compelled to read in one sitting and this is one of them. Did I read it in one sitting? No. The fact that I must earn money in order to leisurely sit around and read books prevented me from doing that. Then I caught a cold; blowing my nose every 30 seconds and draining a watery eye prevented me from finishing it in one sitting as well. But when the weekend came and I was well enough to see straight I found myself lost in the story. Some twists and turns you saw coming, but it was still fun to go along for the ride. Others came out of nowhere and the "just one more chapter and I'll put it down" mentality goes out the window.

I had the pleasure of sharing my love of this story with Mr. Finder himself via Facebook (God bless social media!) and he thanked me for my kind words.

I look forward to more 'Nick Heller' mysteries/thrillers to come in the future.

Yep, a good read. Zipped through it pretty fast.

A very well crafted action/suspense novel. Finder does a great job on this book, just as he did with "Paranoia" (also highly recommended) --- and I admit to a strong prejudice against members of the Council on Foreign Relations (which Finder is a member of).

I am told this book would make one too many holds. However, the books I have on hold are not even in the library's inventory. They are and have been on order. I have only one of of the five holds to pick up with no real time frame offered.

Perhaps a unique situation should be given a bit more thought or perhaps I am being too picky? Dale Hickey

Nick Heller, a private spy who uncovers secrets for a living, has to locate the missing daughter of a friend who has secrets of his own. Good characters and believable story. There's a lot of crazies out there!

Great suspense. Reader is good.

Commercial action novel that would easily translate into a typical one hour TV action drama. I think this would appeal to guys in their late teens/early twenties.

It was okay but I thought the plot was far from believable
