Patrick Anderson…[a] brilliant, deeply cynical new literary thriller. The Finder is a panoramic look at the linked lives of perhaps a dozen characters, from billionaire financiers to Mafia thugs, from Mexican teenagers with forged green cards to society matrons who gossip about a "wheelchair gigolo"…As a study of a decadent, rapidly declining New York, The Finder somewhat recalls Tom Wolfe's 1987 bestseller The Bonfire of the Vanities, but this is a far darker story and, to my mind, a far more interesting one. Harrison's Big Apple is rotten to the core…Yes, this is a dark, violent, sometimes odoriferous novel, but it is also a delightful one because Harrison knows so much and writes so well.
