The Finder

  • Book

In the brutally effective first chapter of The Finder, two Mexican women are locked in their car and asphyxiated with sewage piped through the sunroof. From there, Colin Harrison spins a fast-paced NYC crime novel that incorporates a crabby billionaire financier with prostate problems, a sadistic Italian thug, conniving Chinese businessmen, the Mexican Mafia, a philosophically minded physician, and the titular hero, a former firefighter who just wants to track down his girlfriend, who’s gotten caught up in the mess.
