Publisher's Summary

Nick Heller is tough, smart, and stubborn. And in his line of work, it's essential. Trained in the Special Forces, Nick is a high-powered intelligence investigator - exposing secrets that powerful people would rather keep hidden. He's a guy you don't want to mess with. He's also the man you call when you need a problem fixed.

Desperate, with nowhere else to run, Nick's nephew, Gabe makes that call one night. After being attacked in Georgetown, his mother lies in a coma, and his step-dad, Roger, Nick's brother, has vanished without a trace. 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.

    "Vanished"

    I was always impressed with Finder's novels. This one did not trip my trigger.

    "Good story, GREAT narration"

    I've been a fan of Finder for years, and this story does not disappoint. However, he goes in a different direction this time. The normal Finder novel features a reluctant hero who just can't seem to make the right choices. You find yourself, over and over again, saying "Don't open that door! Are you stupid??!!!" This story doesn't follow that formula, but it's just as good. The reveal at the end is a little bit contrived. It would have been nice for some of the information to have come out during the course of the narrative. But it's well worth the time for the listen.

    The narrator, Holter Graham, is AMAZING! This is the first story I've listened to that he has narrated, but it won't be the last. Major props for the job that he does with Gabe's character.

    "Good but liked Paranoia better"

    Seemed to slow down for me a bit before the end. Has some torture scenes in this book that make you cringe... Not for the squeamish...
    Has some good twists... Its ok, not great, thats why I am giving it a three star.

    "Good, but don't like the narrator"

    This a a pretty good book, not excellent, but I think my opinion for the book is a bit tainted by the narrator. His voices for Lauren and her son Gabe are terrible. I don't like listening to him and I think it has affected my enjoyment of this book.

    "Not Finder's best"

    I've come to really enjoy Joseph Finder's books - he always captures the language of the industry he is writing about. In this book, however, I think he tries too hard to dazzle us with his insider knowledge of spyware and Special Forces lingo. By the end of the book, I really had lost interest. Too bad, because I usually like his stuff. The one highlight? Good narration.

    "Joseph Finder does it again"

    Joseph Finder is at his best in this exciting thriller. The plot is fast paced and the characters are interesting. I did feel he could have developed the character of the imprisioned father a little more throughly though. The narrator was good except for his voice change when he did the teenage son. That was tough to listen to. It reminded me of someone who talks through their nose and whines while doing so. I would have given this a 5 instead of a 4 if not for this.

    "good not great"

    Read the Bourne Triology then Nelson Demille John Corey sp? books and Up Country and especially Word Of Honor ......and you too will feel this book is not in the same league.

    Decent story but you never really care how it ends...only that it ends.

    I devour books but this one was a let down

    "Enjoyable Listen"

    Excellent book! This would have been one book I would have enjoyed reading, but I was traveling a lot during the summer, and decided to pull it down from Audible instead. The narrater did an excellent job voicing each character differently. I even slowed down my driving so I could listen to it more.
