“Is this Joseph Finder’s best thriller yet?  It gets my vote. So many twists and shocks. It kept me reading all night.”
—R.L. Stine

The new novel from the New York Times bestselling author and “master of the modern thriller,” about a father who is forced to make a choice with unspeakable consequences…

JOSEPH FINDER is the New York Times bestselling author of ten previous novels, includingVanished and Buried Secrets. Finder’s international bestseller Killer Instinct won the International Thriller Writer’s Thriller Award for Best Novel of 2006. Other bestselling titles include Paranoia and High Crimes, which both became major motion pictures. He lives in Boston.


When single father Danny Goodman suddenly finds himself unable to afford the private school his teenage daughter adores, he has no one to turn to for financial support.

In what seems like a stroke of brilliant luck, Danny meets Thomas Galvin, the father of his daughter’s new best friend, who also happens to be one of the wealthiest men in Boston. Galvin is aware of Danny’s situation and out of the blue offers a $50,000 loan to help Danny cover his daughter’s tuition. Uncomfortable but desperate, Danny takes the money, promising to pay Galvin back.

What transpires is something Danny never imagined. The moment the money is wired into his account, the DEA comes knocking on his door. Danny’s impossible choice: an indictment for accepting drug money that he can’t afford to fight in court, or an unthinkably treacherous undercover assignment helping the government get close to his new family friend.

As Danny begins to lie to everyone in his life, including those he loves most in the world, he must decide once and for all who the real enemy is or risk losing everything—and everyone—that matters to him.

  1. I have all of his novels, and want to get his new novel. He is such a talented author, one of my favourites.

  2. Aloha, Joe! I was wondering if while writing your last two books, Buried Secrets and Suspicion, visualizing yourself as a parent of your own child had any part in developing the stories and the intensity of the stories?

  3. Hi Joseph, Enjoyed watching your BTLiveChat this afternoon, and for answering my questions. I have all your books and would love to read Suspicion. Great to hear you are a dog-lover and have a golden retriever. We have 2 Labs…full time job. Anyways thanks for the chat and keep on writing.


  4. I had all intentions of watching Joe Finder yesterday and had submitted a comment/question but had to go to the hospital unexpectedly, so I missed the online chat. I had hoped to see it online today but it doesn’t appear that it is available. Could you let me know how I can watch and listen to it??

    Thank you.
