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)

"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)

another great book in the Heller series

Joseph Finder does it again. Great research and character build up. I was googling bashbunny and boscloner security devices to learn more information about them

more profanity than previous stories

This latest Heller outing had more profanity than previous stories, which is a disappointment to me.

Painful to read

Too much research and not enough story. I was not able to get all the way through the book and I am a huge Finder fan

Boring!!!

Can't decide if the story is boring or the narrator is boring... Either way, I'm over halfway through but ready to give up on it.

Great listening!

This was a new author for me and I really enjoyed this book. I didn't want to stop listening to it. Great book! I didn't guess who was the killer.

Not up to Finder's Best

I thought that Finder's early intrigues were top notch …. Company Man and Power Play. The Nick Heller series does not meet that standard. I bought this anyway and enjoyed it well enough, but it's nothing special

Good but not great!

The beginning and middle were good; however, the ending seemed rushed and utterly unbelievable. Still worth the credit, though.

Another great story from Josef Finder

I absolutely loved it.
Once I started the book, I felt like an addic, I just could hardly stop. Every opportunity I had, I listen to as many chapters as I could.
