The SHADOW BROKER – Trace Conger

Cyber Crime does not mean cyber punishment.

Shadow BrokerWhen finding criminals is your business, it’s easy to make a killing.

Finn Harding 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 work 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 ruthless Detroit gangboss.

TraceConger2A good introductory blurb to a great gritty read.

This is an original plot and a story that races along at a great pace. Trace Conger spins a thoroughly readable tense tale of an almost too clever for his own good man on very thin ice.

Finn Harding moves rapidly from tough person tracker to murderer with not too much of a guilty conscience. Rationalise that with the excuse that his victims are all criminals; mostly keen to dispose of him in the first place.

His beloved ex-wife and daughter make him vulnerable. Finn thinks his elderly father is also in that category, but the old man surprises him.

The author’s characters ease into being through their actions and dialogue, more than by physical descriptions, although the latter are often fruity and humorous.

The paperback copy got caught up in the New South Africa postal pothole, but the Kindle edition got through for this honest review. Enjoy! I am looking forward to the next in this series…
