Publisher's Summary

In the last two decades, Private Investigator Marilyn Greene has found more than 200 people - sometimes discovering in hours or minutes a person missing for years. In Finder, Greene shares her news-making triumphs, the joyous family reunions she's made possible, and the chilling cases of dead ends. Often called in when all efforts by law enforcement officials have failed, she has traveled the country to locate runaways, children abducted by parents and strangers, and suicide and homicide victims.
Hailed by Esquire as one of the "men and women under forty who are changing the face of America," Marilyn Greene's story is riveting true adventure. Here is the compelling account of how she uses her instincts and her experience to find "hopelessly lost" individuals; surprising techniques about how and where to look for missing persons; and the tools of her trade, from specially trained dogs to publicly available directories and maps. Finder is an invaluable resource on missing-person cases - and spellbinding listening.

A story about finding other people and yourself.

Would you consider the audio edition of Finder: The True Story of a Private Investigator to be better than the print version?

Have only listened to the Audio edition.

What did you like best about this story?

The journey of a woman finding success in a traditionally non-female profession.

Also it is not only a search for other people but for herself.

What does Sara K. Sheckells bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A good narrator keeps you involved in the story and helps your imagination.

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

A Private Dick in Stockings.

Any additional comments?

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

I loved this book

What made the experience of listening to Finder: The True Story of a Private Investigator the most enjoyable?

Hearing the stories of the people found. Even those who were returned to their families for burial. It is peace of mind for the family.

What did you like best about this story?

I appreciated the real life struggle Marilyn had trying to find a balance between her family and the calling she had to find the missing. Being torn like that is not easy.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Each time her sons decided they wanted to join Mom to search or even sit stakeout.

Any additional comments?

The fight against the world of men trying to keep women out is a fight I ran up against in my younger days, including going to the local police department to ask about a job. In my case I was told that the best I could hope for was a clerical job. I am glad Marilyn found her way into doing what she was meant to do with her life.

Great<br />

I really enjoyed this book, the stories of the lost and found and Marilyn's personal struggles.

It made me want to grab a computer and start looking for missing people myself.

I know this is Marilyn' s story, but I would live to hear Paul's story too.

I was given this book free and exchange for an honest review
