Overview

The Finder by Colin Harrison, Jason Culp

There’s no doubt about it: Colin Harrison is a master storyteller. Critics and readers love his gripping, dark books. It’s hard not to get sucked into his world. Entertainment Weekly calls him the “class act of the urban thriller,” Michiko Kakutani of The New York Times lauds him as “a master of mood and atmosphere,” and Publishers Weekly crows that Harrison “writes like an angel.”

Now, the author of The Havana Room, Afterburn, and Manhattan Nocturne raises the stakes with an electrifying new thriller, The Finder. Harrison spins the story of a young, beautiful, secretive Chinese woman, Jin-Li, who gets involved in a brilliant scheme to steal valuable information from corporations in New York City. When the plan is discovered by powerful New Yorkers who stand to lose enormous sums of money, Jin-Li goes on the run. Meanwhile, her former lover, Ray Grant, a man who was out of the country for years but who has recently returned, is caught up in the search for her. Ray has not been forthcoming to Jin-Li about why he left New York or what he was doing overseas, but his training and strengths will be put to the ultimate test against those who are unmerciful in their desire to regain a fortune lost. Ray is going to have to find Jin-Li, and he is going to have to find her fast.

A relaxing weekend book. Fiction. Little resemblance to true-life but still a good read.

Excellent thriller by Harrison. Not up to the level of "Afterburn" but still worth the read as the reader is drawn into the world of insider trading, international corruption and the seamy side of New York City. The author continues to introduce his readers to areas of the Big Apple that tourists just don't get to see, fortunately. The pace is fast and characters are interesting and plausible. Harrison can be counted on to throw great twists and turns into his tales but, this time, he has chosen to wrap everything up in a neat package that has the appearance that he wanted to get the whole thing over too quickly. Would still continue to buy his latest, however.

For readers who are stout of heart and not afraid of a thriller with plenty of nasty surprises, The Finger is an excellent choice. Colin Harrison establishes a unique voice: gritty by eloquent, classical yet current. The Finder is an excellent example of pace, mood, and pure narrative force. Readers who enjoy this book (and there are sure to be many) will also want to check out Crimson Orgy by Austin Williams, another sizzling new thriller that delivers more than its share of jolts.

Crime novels often have plenty of blood, but Colin Harrison focuses much more on other body excretions. His very dark tale of shenanigans involving the old money men of New York and the new from Shanghai is cleverly plotted but hard to grasp. So much doesn't ring true, and Harrison's constant interruptions to show off his knowledge of this or that keep the book from gaining real thriller momentum. But there is enough action to hold your interest, and the colorful characters you'll meet make it worth the read.

In New York City, someone is using insider information to make a financial killing buying and selling Good Pharma stock. An outraged billionaire warns CEO Tom Reilly to plug the leak and to take care of the culprit regardless of means or else. His paper notes delivered to Reilly even in Yankee Stadium frightens the CEO who must do something or face dire consequences from an unknown but obviously powerful stockholder.--- Tom is unable at first to figure out who or how. Using a legitimate paper shredding outfit CorpServe as a guise, Jin Li has been selling company information that she provides to her brother Chen who trades stocks accordingly. A desperate Tom orders a ruthless wannabe to take care of the leak. In Brooklyn two twentyish female Mexican employees working for the shredding firm are murdered, but Li escapes not before she sees their horrific deaths. Her sibling and Reilly assume her former boyfriend Ray Grant not only helped her, he hid her probably in Brooklyn. Each side demands he reveals where she is. He has no idea but turns to his dying father, a former NYPD cop, to help him find Jin before he becomes an afterlife greeter welcoming his father. --- This is an excellent crime thriller that grips readers as every trail converges on Li even an overseas stock market. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the two young Mexicans are killed in Brooklyn and never slows down as Tom, Chen and Ray understand the threats to their lives while each seek Li as the key to their safety. Fans of urban crime capers will appreciate this exhilarating action-packed thriller that never decelerates ending with a typhoon. --- Harriet Klausner
