Joseph Finder introduced Nick Heller, a â€śprivate spyâ€ť who
finds out things powerful people want to keep hidden, to
widespread acclaim from the critics and wild enthusiasm from
the readers, 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
thatâ€™s both high-profile and intensely personal.
Nick has returned to his old home town of Boston to set up
his own shop. There heâ€™s urgently summoned by an old family
friend. Hedge fund titan Marshall Marcus desperately needs
Nickâ€™s help. His teenaged daughter, Alexa, has just been
kidnapped. Her abduction was clearly a sophisticated
professional job, done with extraordinary precision. Alexa,
whom Nick has known since she was young, is now buried
alive, held prisoner in an underground crypt, a camera
trained on her, her suffering streaming live over the
internet. Sheâ€™s been left with a limited supply of food and
water and, if her father doesnâ€™t meet the demands of her
shadowy kidnappers, sheâ€™ll die. And as Nick begins to probe,
he discovers that all is not quite right with Marshall
Marcusâ€™s business. Heâ€™s being investigated by the FBI, he
has a lot of shady investors, his fund is in danger and now
he has a lot of powerful enemies who may have the motivation
to go after Marcusâ€™s daughter. But to find out whoâ€™s holding
Alexa Marcus hostage, Nick has to find out why. Once he
does, he uncovers an astonishing conspiracy that reaches far
beyond anything he could have imagined. And if heâ€™s going to
find Alexa in time, he will have to flush out and confront
some of his deadliest opponents ever.
