The second book in international bestseller Joseph Finder's new series, featuring corporate investigator Nick Heller. Heller is facing the Russian Mafia and a particularly nasty bunch of thugs who have a girl buried alive as their bartering tool. An explosive new thriller so be ready for a white-knuckle ride.
When PI Nick Heller moves back to Boston to set up his own agency, he soon gets an urgent case even closer to home than expected. Alexandra Marcus - teenage daughter of hedge fund titan Marshall Marcus - has been kidnapped. But it's no ordinary kidnapping - and it's not even clear what they want. She's been abducted by professionals and buried alive in an underground casket. A video camera is streaming her desperate pleas live over the internet. With only a limited supply of food and water, her time is quickly running out. A close friend of the family, Nick is more determined than ever to catch the perpetrators. But when Marshall is arrested for fraud, Nick uncovers some powerful enemies and a conspiracy that reaches up to the very highest levels of government. Faced with opponents well-protected by wealth and position, Nick must play a dangerous game if he hopes to flush out those responsible before Alexa is buried for good...
'This is edge-of-the-seat, pulse-racing storytelling with a whiplash finish'
