Lauren Heller and her husband Roger are attacked in a Georgetown parking lot after an evening out. Knocked unconscious by the assailants, Lauren lies in a coma in the hospital while her husband has vanished without a trace. With nowhere else to turn, Lauren's teenage son Gabe reaches out to his uncle, Nick Heller, a high-powered investigator with a corporate intelligence firm in Washington, D.C. Nick's looking into his brother's disappearance unexpectedly pits him against the interests of some extremely influential forces in Washington, including his own boss. Nick finds himself on a collision course with one of the most powerful and secretive corporations in the world, whose minions will stop at nothing to protect the secrets that Nick Heller is determined to uncover-- secrets that reach into the highest levels of the government... and may get Nick and everyone he's trying to protect killed.

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
