  • Buried Secrets

    Joseph Finder introduced Nick Heller, a “private spy” who finds out things powerful people want to keep hidden, to widespread acclaim from the critics and wild enthusiasm from the readers, in the New York Times best-selling novel Vanished. Now, in Buried Secrets, Nick Heller returns, finding himself in the middle of a life-or-death situation that’s both high-profile and intensely personal.

    Story

    I've enjoyed all of the other Finder books I've listened to as audiobooks, but did not like this book. Nick Heller describes himself as having an innate talent to read people and tell if they are lying, then proceeds to misread every other character in the book. That would be ok, if this were a joke spy novel, but it's not. Heller is not likable, yet everyone is willing to do anything for him. Based on his secret black ops past, he has contacts that can do anything he needs with a simple phone call, which is convenient but not plausible. It's simply not a well thought out or plotted book. I'd rate it lower if I didn't respect Finder's talent, at least with other books of his.

    Tana French's debut, In the Woods, hit the New York Times best-seller list and drew rave reviews from the Times (London) and Booklist. Picking up six months later, this riveting sequel finds Detective Cassie Maddox still scarred by her last case. When her boyfriend calls her to a chilling murder scene, Cassie is forced to face her inner demons. A young woman has been found stabbed to death outside Dublin, and the victim looks just like Cassie.

    Story

    After listening to Into the Woods, I quickly purchased all four of French's Dublin Murder Squad books, and each gets better. I generally listen to audiobooks in the car or when I'm on a long walk, but this time, I couldn't stop listening when I got out of the car, and continued to listen to this book into the evening.

    I'm currently listening to Faithful Place, and it's another great listen!
