Overview

Final Target by Steven Gore

A man lies unconscious in a hospital bed, the victim of a violent assault the police are calling "road rage." If he recovers, prosecutors are waiting to indict him for conspiracy, eager to send him to prison for the rest of his life.

And he's the lucky one . . .

Private investigator Graham Gage believes the injured man—his closest friend Jack Burch—had no part in the ever-widening criminal conspiracy surrounding the collapse of defense contractor SatTek Industries. But Gage's search for the truth is rocketing him to hot spots around the globe—and dragging him into a deadly morass of lies, greed, and terror alongside traitors, killers, and international gangsters. As the plot slowly unravels the body count soars, and Gage finds himself in an impossible race to prevent the unimaginable.

Because the first target was his friend . . . but the final target is his country.

First time writer Steven Gore builds the intrigue right from the start and doesn't let up. The characters are wonderfully well developed. Graham Gage is the understated hero chasing the clues in this international thriller, while fighting off mobsters, politicians and bankers who often all look the same. The scary part is this story is all based on true current events and possible real live situations. Makes you think. This will keep you turning the pages and wanting more.

The off beat characters and international mystery add so much, it was hard to put it down. Cutting edge and current world happenings made it even more interesting. Good to know there will be more from this writer.

Final Target is an extremely engaging mystery, in the style of many other page turners that keep you up way past your lights-out time. But be careful: you just might learn something about international finance, police work and the life of an investigator. Well done! Bravo to the newest, bestest story teller on the block. Steven Gore has arrived.

Very good for a first novel. Although it's too long & somewhat over the top, I'd feel comfortable buying this author's next book. aj west

Katie sends the letter to the FBI in San Francisco that President Matson of Surveillance and Targeting Technologies (SatTek) of San Jose was conducting illegal offshore money dumping. The whistleblower remembers her Russian name is Ekaterina just before she is killed. International lawyer, Jack Burch is shot while jogging. He remains in a coma in a San Francisco Medical hospital. At about the same time Matson plea bargains with Assistant U.S. Attorney William Peterson over his jail time for embezzling three hundred million dollars in an offshore dumping. He blames the affair on comatose Burch, his attorney in setting up the offshore firms. While the Feds led by Peterson salivate over hanging Burch for the white collar crimes and subsequent corporate collapse, his best friend private investigator Graham Gage rejects the theory of criminal activity by his buddy. He searches for the shooter and soon also who killed the whistleblower. He and his team begin to find ties between Matson and the Ukrainian mafia with links to that country's presidency; treason apparently in two nations but the Feds prefers to not go that route. This is a great financial investigative thriller that grips readers with Katie's dying opening act and never slows down as Gage leads an inquiry that spans several nations in two continents while the Feds choose the easier low road. Fast-paced and gripping, sub-genre fans will relish Steven Gore's strong tale that the author states in the afterward is based on real events of which he probed. Note to Poisoned Pen readers: this book was released as a mass market by HarperCollins in February. Harriet Klausner

Really did not like the format of the pages. The fonts was messed up. A few lines here and there per page. Yes I do know how to change formates and fonts. This just did'nt work. Whats up publishers? Always turning pages. Hated it. 409 pages......NOT....Story okay. Give it 2.5 stars. Not sure if I'll read anymore of Gores books if the formate is like this one. Afraid to try.
