Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Joseph Finder's electrifying new thriller, private investigator Nick Heller infiltrates a powerful wealthy family hiding something sinister.

Nick Heller is at the top of his game when he receives some devastating news: His old army buddy, Sean, has died of an overdose. Sean, who once saved Nick’s life, got addicted to opioids after returning home wounded from war.

Then, at Sean’s funeral, a stranger approaches Nick with a job, and maybe also a way for Nick to hold someone accountable.

The woman is the daughter of a pharmaceutical kingpin worth billions. Now, she wants to become a whistleblower, exposing her father and his company for burying evidence that its biggest money-maker was dangerously addictive. It was a lie that killed hundreds of thousands of people, including Sean.

All Nick has to do is find the document that proves the family knew the drug’s dangers. But Nick soon realizes that the sins of the patriarch are just the beginning.

Beneath the surface are barely concealed cabals and conspiracies: a twisting story of family intrigue and lethal corporate machinations. In a deadly game of chess that pits Nick against a family dynasty, against brothers and sisters with schemes of their own, Nick learns how far his enemy is willing to go to protect its name and its wealth.

Critic Reviews

"Joseph Finder is incapable of writing a bad thriller. I’d follow Nick Heller anywhere." (C. J. Box, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Long Range)

"A mixture of Jason Bourne and Sam Spade, Nick Heller is the man you want in your corner. House on Fire is classic whodunit wrapped in a modern world of technology and current events, with enough twists to keep you reading long into the night." (Brad Taylor, New York Times best-selling author of Daughter of War)

"Finder is a master of the narrow escape...Finder’s characterization of Heller gets more layered with every installment. The way Heller moves through the mystery, using social skills, street smarts, and technology to get in and out of trouble, is breathtaking. Excruciating suspense." (Booklist)

"Fans of timely, thoughtful page-turners will be richly rewarded." (Publishers Weekly)
