Nick and Roger have been on the outs since the arrest, trial, and conviction of their father, the notorious "fugitive financier" Victor Heller. Where Nick strayed from the path, Roger followed their father's footsteps into the corporate world. Now, as Nick searches for his brother, he's on a collision course with one of the most powerful corporations in the world - and they will stop at nothing to protect their secrets.

this was a great book. It held my attention til the very end. It was a slight departure from his other books but very well done.
Not as good as previous works, the story was kind of confusing, but I was entertained. The narrator wasn't the greatest. This is supposed to be a series of novels hopefully the next one will have less bratty teenagers.
The story isn't bad but OMG, I'd like to smack the crap out of the narrator. When he reads normally, like in the preview, it's great. Then he does the nasally teenage and woman's voice, or the fey British voice, or the gruff tough guy voice and grunts... Ummmm, no. This is not a bedtime story, I don't need make believe voice to make the story more interesting.
I love books!
I'd never heard of this author, probably only got it because Audible put it on the front page and it looked interesting. It was entertaining, it was interesting, was it the best book I've ever listened to, no, will I listen to another Finder, most likely.
A fast and entertaining read, not a great story and as one reviewer noted, it has some holes; but keeps moving. However I cannot recommend to friends in audio format. The nasal whining of the teenager almost fits, but he uses the same voice half the time for the wife and it just doesn't work, makes her into a sniveling stereotype of the vulnerable dependent female that does not fit the story line at all. Buy the book for a good beach read, but stay away from this version.
I listen to about 2 books every 10 days.I could NOT bring myself to hear this one out. The narrator was so boring I could not get into the book !
I give the narrator a 4.5 but the story is a 3. It had all the makings of a great read but the plot miss-fires a bit to much and is difficult to follow. It's just not very plausable and the author doesn't really explain how the villian tries to pull it off. Still a good read though.
