Description

New York Times bestselling author Joseph Finder's breakneck stand-alone thriller about the secrets families can keep—and the danger of their discovery.

When former investigative reporter Rick Hoffman loses his job, fiancée, and apartment, his only option is to move back into—and renovate—the home of his miserable youth, now empty and in decay since the stroke that put his father in a nursing home.

As Rick starts to pull apart the old house, he makes an electrifying discovery—millions of dollars hidden in the walls. It’s enough money to completely transform Rick’s life—and everything he thought he knew about his father.  Yet the more of his father’s hidden past that Rick brings to light, the more dangerous his present becomes. Soon, he finds himself on the run from deadly enemies desperate to keep the past buried, and only solving the mystery of his father—a man who has been unable to communicate, comprehend, or care for himself for almost 20 years—will save Rick...if he can survive long enough to do it.

    Hard to put my finger on it, but it was lacking something. Things fell into place too neatly, but in fairness, the story did hold my interest. Liked the author's earlier novels a lot better......
  • Great!

    This is a book that grabs ahold of your attention. You start reading and right away you're hooked. I had a hard time putting the book down and found it a mistake to read during my lunch hour. I wanted to keep reading. This book keeps you at the edge of your seat and when you think you've figured out who's behind it all, they make it so you start second guessing yourself. Great book by Joseph Finder, I look forward to reading more by him!
  • As Good as Forsyth

    Blending fiction and journalism in an entertaining mystery maybe too formula driven for some, but The Fixer is wonderfully written, highly readable, and downright suspenseful! Great read!

    Was eagerly awaiting the new book as enjoyed all the others. But it was very disappointing it is slow predictable and boring. I fear Mr Finder is running out of ideas.

    Flat characters, predictable events. Couldn't wait to be done with it. Would have stopped reading but I paid for the darn thing.
