Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite The Prison Guard’s Son by Trace Conger is volume 3 of the Mr. Finn series. This is the final chapter. Thirty years earlier, a horrific crime was committed against a four-year-old boy. Abduction and murder, while the perpetrators themselves were just nine years old. After eight years in a juvenile detention facility, the boys are released and given new identities, but someone is still looking for them. The father of the little boy, Josh Baker, wants retribution. He wants the boys found and hires Finn Harding to find them. Finn takes the case and starts the long search, clashing with the man that Baker hired to mete out the justice the courts didn’t. Things aren’t always what they seem though, and Finn must make some tough decisions along the way. The Prison Guard’s Son by Trace Conger was a gripping read. I didn’t read the first two books in the series, and I don’t know how much extra they would have given this story, but I don’t feel that I was missing too much when I read this book. That said, I would recommend reading the books in the order they were written to get a better feel for the main character. There was enough detail given to provide the necessary background, allowing me to follow the story and understand it. This was a deep story, with plenty to think about along the way, and it trotted along at a good pace, picking up speed towards the end. The character development was good, and matched the story well. This story reminded me very much of a true case from England and many comparisons can be drawn between this story and that case. Good book, good story, and very well-written; I would recommend this author to anyone who wants a meaty read to sink their teeth into.

Four-year-old Josh Baker was kidnapped from a shopping mall by two 9-year-old boys and brutally murdered. The two boys, Jacob Vance and Raymond Turner, were caught and convicted, but only served time until they turned 18 years of age. Thirty years have passed and the father of Josh Baker wants real justice for his murdered son. He hires Finn Harding, a PI who has lost his license, to find the 2 boys, now grown men. He wants Finn to find them, he's already lined up someone else to kill them. Because of the threats to their lives, they have been given new identities and relocated them .. no one knows their new names or where they are except for the US Marshals. Finn takes on the job but reserves the right to pass on whatever information he can find to the father. Finn may cross some lines here and there, but he also bears responsibility to what happens after. This is quite a good book. I liked all the characters ..good and bad. Finn is multi-layered in both his professional and private life. It is a well-written crime novel with a great deal of attention paid to the details of tracking down people who do not want to be found. The premise was solid. I am sad to say that I have not read the first two books in this series. I will take care of that shortly. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves crime drama. Many thanks to the author who provided a digital copy for my review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Imagine losing your four year old child to sadistic murderers. Would you want revenge? Would you want it even if the murderers were only five years older than the child you lost? How long would you be willing to wait to get that revenge and how would you go about achieving it? That is what this book is about…and monsters…monsters that are pure evil. Finn is asked to find two people and as they have gone WAY underground it is no easy task. The story of his search is interesting as are the people he encounters while he is looking. He wants to look both men in the eye and assess who they are three decades after they admitted to killing Josh Baker. He does this, uncovers a child pornography ring, encounters an alpha female working for WITSEC, meets up with some of the people that he worked with in the first two books and also tries to decide what is best for himself and his family as he moves forward after this case. All of it makes a thrilling read that had me turning pages from beginning to end. I was hooked on the Mr. Finn books from the very first one I read and was thrilled when the author asked if I would be willing to read and review his second and third books in the series. I hope there will be more Mr. Finn books in the future because I am not finished with Finn, his family or the people he works with and hope the author isn’t either. Thank you to the author for the copy of this book given in exchange for my honest review.

I am a huge fan of the Mr. Finn Novels. The Prison Guard’s Son is no exception. Right from the jump I was captivated and involved with the story. This time Mr. Finn is hired to find two men who would rather not be found. Why, I will not reveal. The story is straight forward, and the action is sudden and surprising. The Mr. Finn novels are well written and offer a superior example of the P.I. novel. Here is my suggestion – Get on the case right now. Buy all three of the Mr. Finn novels and feel what it is like to be a P.I.
