New York Times bestselling author Joseph Finder brought private investigator and ex-Special Forces Nick Heller to life in a critically acclaimed series. Here is Nick Heller’s beginning, in a down-priced bundle of the first two thrillers.
Lauren Heller and her husband are attacked in Georgetown, but when he disappears completely, she calls her brother-in-law—Nick Heller—to investigate. Thrown into a desperate chase, Nick digs up secrets about his estranged brother and finds himself pitted against Washington’s most influential forces to protect his family.
Approached by an old friend whose daughter has been abducted, Nick lands in the middle of a life-or-death situation that’s both high-profile and intensely personal—and uncovering a conspiracy that reaches up to the highest levels of government.
