“Buried Secrets” by Joseph Finder
“Buried Secrets” is the second (and so far last) of the Nick Heller series. A few years back, Joseph Finder sent me an ARC of “Vanished” which was the first Nick Heller. See my review of “Vanished” here. In the meantime, soooo many books so little time, I have not gotten back to Joseph Finder, until now. I will read more, he is an excellent writer.
Nick Heller is a “private spy”. He is an ex-Special Forces intelligence officer who recently moved to Boston after quitting his job in Washington, DC.
An old friend, billionaire Marshall Marcus’ daughter, Alexa, is missing (but, only for the past few hours) and Marcus thinks she has been kidnapped (it has happened before, but, she was released almost immediately). Nick likes Alexa and knows she can be a handful, but, agrees that something bad might have happened to her.
He starts an investigation.
Marcus eventually gets an email with a link to go to. Rather than acting on it immediately, he calls Nick, and when he arrives, they connect. What they find is Alexa on a video conference from a coffin! She is frantic and wants her Dad to give the kidnappers anything they want.
Problem is…….he can’t give them what they want, so it is up to Nick to find Alexa before she dies.
There are a number of people, and organizations, involved (or not involved) but with the help of his ex-girlfriend, FBI Agent Diana Madigan, and his office assistants, they just might find Alexa in time.
To see how this thrilling adventure ends, you will have to read “Buried Secrets”. Joseph Finder is terrific.
