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, Lauren, 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, in Joseph Finder's thrilling Vanished .

This edition of the book is the deluxe, tall rack mass market paperback.

Overall good, but took longer to read than his other books I've read. Too many names, too many companies for me to keep track of and remember the relationship they all have to each other.

This is the 3rd book I've read by Finder - enjoyed the other two more. It's a good plot but somewhat heavy on the descriptions and IT details. The big question: is Roger held captive, alive or dead.

"After an assault leaves his estranged brother nowhere to be found and his sister-in-law in the hospital, corporate espionage investigator (and former Special Forces soldier) Nick Heller begins looking into the attack - and uncovers the sorts of secrets that a very powerful, very secretive corporation would go to great lengths to keep hidden. With all the action and suspense of a thriller, plus enough corporate wrongdoing to chill your blood, this series debut is "outstanding" (Library Journal). Follow it up with the 2nd and most recent in the series, Buried Secrets." Thrillers and Suspense December 2012 Newsletter
