The first in a brand-new series from international bestseller Joseph Finder. With a new ongoing lead character - Nick Heller - and a new focus - the world of high-powered corporate investigation - this is Finder at his very best
Joseph Finder is the author of numerous thrillers, including the bestselling novels POWER PLAY, PARANOIA and KILLER INSTINCT. In addition to fiction, Joseph continues to write extensively on espionage and international affairs for the New York Times and the Washington Post. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts, with his wife and daughter.
Few recent thrillers have as many heart-skipping moments and as rousing a climax as Finder's (www.josephfinder.com) follow-up to Power Play (2007), also available from BBC Audiobooks America. When Special Forces-trained investigator Nick Heller's estranged brother, Roger, is kidnapped, Nick must face off against some of Washington's most powerful forces to find him. Narrator Holter Graham (www.holtergraham.com) puts his significant acting skills to work, especially in his voicing of the truly unique protagonist. The suspense never falters, and listeners will be pleased by the satisfying ending to this complex tale. [Includes a bonus interview with the author; the St. Martin's hc, published in August, was a New York Times best seller.-Ed.]-Joseph L.

Known for his stand-alones, bestseller Finder (Power Play) introduces Nick Heller, an elite corporate intelligence specialist and former Special Services badass, in this exciting series opener. After a frantic call from his 14-year-old nephew, Gabe, Heller returns home to Washington, D.C., from a job in California to find Gabe's mother in a coma and Gabe's stepfather, Roger, who is Heller's older brother, vanished without a trace. Though the brothers have been estranged since their father's much-publicized securities fraud conviction years earlier, Nick vows to protect Gabe and his mother and unravel the mystery of Roger's alleged abduction. The investigation leads him to some disturbing revelations about Roger, not the least of which involves a powerful-and dangerous-private military company. Written in staccato chapters that are emotionally supercharged and action packed, this thriller will more than satisfy adrenaline junkies and have them guessing until the very end. (Aug.)
