Buried Secrets


Joseph introduced Nick Heller — a “private spy” who finds out things powerful people want to keep hidden — in the New York Times bestselling novel VANISHED.

Now, in BURIED SECRETS, Nick Heller returns, finding himself in the middle of a life-or-death situation that’s both high-profile and intensely personal.

Nick has returned to his old home town of Boston to set up his own shop. There he’s urgently summoned by an old family friend. Hedge fund titan Marshall Marcus desperately needs Nick’s help. His teenaged daughter, Alexandra, has just been kidnapped. Her abduction was clearly a sophisticated, professional job, done with extraordinary precision, leaving no trace evidence. Alexandra, whom Nick has known since she was an infant, is now buried alive, held prisoner in an underground crypt, a camera trained on her, her suffering streaming live over the internet for all to see. She’s been left with a limited supply of food and water and, if her father doesn’t meet the demands of her shadowy kidnappers, she’ll die. And as Nick begins to probe, he discovers that his old friend Marshall Marcus seems to have been running a Ponzi scheme. His fund has collapsed, the FBI has arrested him, and now he’s become the most hated man in America. He has a lot of powerful enemies who may have the motivation to go after his daughter. But to find out who’s holding Alexandra Marcus hostage, Nick has to find out why. And once he does, he uncovers an astonishing conspiracy that reaches up to the highest levels of government. If he’s going to find Alexandra, he has to flush out and confront some of the most deadly opponents ever...

Buried secrets

 Just finished buried secrets in a weekend! I am hooked on Nick Heller in such a bad way! I cannot wait to read his next adventure!  I am now a huge Joe Finder fan!  Many thanks to my physician friend who gave me my favorite reads of all time! Looking forward to Paranoia the movie!  If it's anything close to the book, it will be a complete smash at the box office !  So much praise to give.. Not enough space to write! 

Wow, Joseph, I read and

Wow, Joseph,

I read and reviewed BURIED SECRETS with a great deal of joy... It's an exciting plot, filled with so many twists and turns I couldn't put it down. This is a blockbuster, as are all your books, IMO. :-)

Hey, my 1106 GRAND BOULEVARD was just voted No. 20 in BEST WOMEN'S FICTION at Heart Press. I'm elated. Nothing like your successes but I'm hanging in there.

Thanks for the book and for the signed nameplate. That was a very welcome Christmas blessing.

Best always - Betty Dravis <3
