Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Joseph Finder delivers an exhilarating and timely thriller exploring how even the most powerful among us can be brought down by scandal and how the lies we tell one another - and ourselves - can never truly stay buried.
The chief justice of the Supreme Court is about to be defamed by a powerful gossip website called Slander Sheet, which specializes in dirt on celebs and politicians. Their top reporter has written an exposé claiming that the chief justice had liaisons with an escort, a young woman willing to appear on video and tell the world her salacious yet convincing tale. But the chief justice is not without formidable allies, and his greatest supporter is determined to stop the story in its tracks.
Nick Heller is a private spy - a private intelligence operative based in Boston, hired by lawyers, politicians, and even foreign governments. Known as both a maverick and a dedicated, high-powered investigator, he's called to Washington, DC, to help out in this delicate, potentially explosive situation.
Nick has just 48 hours to prove the story about the chief justice is baseless. But when the call girl is found murdered, the case takes an unexpected and dangerous turn, and Nick resolves to find the true mastermind behind the Slander Sheet story before anyone else falls victim to the maelstrom of political scandal and ruined reputations predicated upon one carefully concealed secret.

Beyond stupid!

What disappointed you about Guilty Minds?

Plausibility is one thing, gratuitous fiction is a crime.
It is difficult to write a novel. Writing one of substance is quite another.
This thing is a waste of time, unless you think cartoons are literature.
Add the nasal, teenage quality of the narration, and you are up to your knees in the morass of a mistake.

An Unmemorable Page Turner

Another fun page turner by Finder. This book is a typical thriller with shallow, unmemorable, and unbelievable characters. The action scenes are fun to read but suffer from unrealistic logistical problems (UPS trucks available from nowhere, magical escapes, cops that let you leave multiple violent scenes without asking obvious questions...why is there a dead woman in your tub? What was your role in her kidnapping? Why didn't you call the police? How'd you get the dynamite?, Why is your partner on the no fly list?, and on, and on, etc). I always read Joseph Finder books because they are a fun escape, but they are usually not memorable. I don't expect to learn anything new or experience any new angles of human experience
