Nick has returned to his old home town of Boston to set up his own shop. There, he’s urgently summoned by an old family friend. Hedge-fund titan Marshall Marcus desperately needs Nick’s help. His teenaged daughter, Alexa, has just been kidnapped. Her abduction was clearly a sophisticated professional job, done with extraordinary precision. Alexa, whom Nick has known since she was young, is now buried alive, held prisoner in an underground crypt, a camera trained on her, her suffering streaming live over the Internet. She’s been left with a limited supply of food and water and, if her father doesn’t meet the demands of her shadowy kidnappers, she’ll die.
As Nick begins to probe, he discovers that all is not quite right with Marshall Marcus’s business. He’s being investigated by the FBI, he has a lot of shady investors, his fund is in danger and now he has a lot of powerful enemies who may have the motivation to go after Marcus’s daughter. But to find out who’s holding Alexa Marcus hostage, Nick has to find out why. Once he does, he uncovers an astonishing conspiracy that reaches far beyond anything he could have imagined. And if he’s going to find Alexa in time, he will have to flush out and confront some of his deadliest opponents ever.

Entertaining and Riveting Listening
I've never read any of Joseph Finder's books and noticed on former reviews of other books some customers didn't like Holter Graham's narration. I thought the narration was excellent. It's difficult to narrate a book while making it dramatic and more than interesting, especially when you're a man with a deep voice portraying women characters. I personally liked the way the narrator handled the young, teenage voices (example teenage girl buried alive underground, trying to stay sane and alive) as well as dialects of various characters. I'm almost at the ending and am truly enjoying the audio book. This was an entertaining download for me that keeps my attention. Ooooh the plot thickens. I'm only chapters away from the ending.
