New York Times bestselling author Joseph Finder delivers his next 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.
Mr. Finder is another author who when I see his books I do get excited. I could not wait to get my hands on his latest book. I began to read it and the beginning was fine. Then I continued to read and read. Still fine but where is the intense build up. It was steady but not big surprises or adrenaline rush. There was no character that really stuck out for me as strong either.
Although I was missing the intensity from reading this book. I still like Mr. Finder's writing style and stuck with the book. Which by the way the second half of the book is way better then the first half. The story picks up speed and there is action. Things start happening with different players. The ending was a good one.
