Summary

When finding criminals is your business, it's easy to make a killing.

Finn Harding (Mr. Finn to his clients) specializes in finding people who don't want to be found. Stripped of his PI license, Finn begins working for the type of clientele who operate in the shadows, pay in cash, and don't care if he's licensed or not. As Finn becomes ensnared in a plot to take over a black-market information brokerage, he finds himself and his family straddling the thin line between life and death. With his own clients gunning for him, Finn must evade a psychopathic killer, special agents from the FBI's cybercrime unit, and a Detroit mob boss.

Finn is about to find out that working with criminals has its advantages. Staying alive isn't one of them.

Trace Conger delivers a sharp-edged and gritty tale of crime, murder, and family. It's a fast-paced crime thriller that holds nothing back.

Interesting story

There wasn't much to like about the main character, but I liked him anyway. I'm hooked on the series.

A Very Pleasant Surprise.

This was a very enjoyable listen. I was unaware of the author and tried this first book and was not disappointed. The narrative development was paced well, thorough, and the book was well balanced. By that I mean Mr. Conger took the reader through a solid conclusion, one not ending in a short paragraph followed by "The End."

I look forward to purchasing the remaining books in publication sequence and urge the author to continue the series. I especially am anxious to learn more of Arthur Finn's backstory.

Excellent Suspense Crime Thriller!

Well-written. This story makes you feel empathy for the main character, Mr. Finn, a "regular guy" doing his best.

great mystery

Would you consider the audio edition of The Shadow Broker to be better than the print version?

Love audiobooks except I wish they were rated like movies-R = strong language, strong violence. I hate swearing in audiobooks!!!!!!!!!!!!

What did you like best about this story?

It was a "page turner" keeping you guessing what is coming next.

Which scene was your favorite?

Where grandpa is hiding & waiting for the bad guys in the ex-wife's house and has blankets in the bed to look like people.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

For love of money...

Any additional comments?

How All the Trouble Began.

What did you love best about The Shadow Broker?

It was exciting and suspenseful. The main character is awesome. He is cool and level headed, goes out of his way not to kill people, but can hold his own in a very bad world.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, Finn's decisions to do illegal things make perfect sense at the time. Little by little he is pulled in over his head. His plan looked good. Who could know how wrong it would turn out? Can he keep his family safe and stay alive?

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite was definitely when Grandpa Albert disarms the jerk trying to kill his son and granddaughter. Done with old dude style and grit.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is an intense, edge of your seat crime drama. It is like a cross between "Magnum PI" and "Breaking Bad." I listened to the whole thing in three days and looked forward to each installment.

Any additional comments?

It is a relatively clean book. No gratuitous sex scenes. It has some graphic violence. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
