Publisher's Summary

When finding criminals is your business, it's easy to make a killing.
Finn Harding (Mr. Finn to his clients) 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 operate 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 Detroit mob boss.
Finn is about to find out that working with criminals has its advantages. Staying alive isn't one of them.
Trace Conger delivers a sharp-edged and gritty tale of crime, murder, and family. It's a fast-paced crime thriller that holds nothing back.

How All the Trouble Began.

What did you love best about The Shadow Broker?

It was exciting and suspenseful. The main character is awesome. He is cool and level headed, goes out of his way not to kill people, but can hold his own in a very bad world.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, Finn's decisions to do illegal things make perfect sense at the time. Little by little he is pulled in over his head. His plan looked good. Who could know how wrong it would turn out? Can he keep his family safe and stay alive?

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite was definitely when Grandpa Albert disarms the jerk trying to kill his son and granddaughter. Done with old dude style and grit.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is an intense, edge of your seat crime drama. It is like a cross between "Magnum PI" and "Breaking Bad." I listened to the whole thing in three days and looked forward to each installment.

Any additional comments?

It is a relatively clean book. No gratuitous sex scenes. It has some graphic violence. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

- pixledust "Because tales should be told."

Fast paced. Lots of action.

Where does The Shadow Broker rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I love listening to audiobooks, as I spend a lot of time commuting to work. This book was a very fast "listen" and it was hard to stop when I arrived at work. It's a fast paced story with a lot of action and humor.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot was very interesting. The author does a good job of keeping the action moving. There aren't any "slow points" in the audiobook. The chapters are short, which creates an action-packed experience that jumps from action to action.

What does Kyle Tait bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I was not familiar with the narrator's work prior to listening to this audiobook. I thought he did a great job, and will look for other titles that he has narrated.

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

Since it's a crime novel, I can't say that anything "move me," but I'd say the interactions between Finn (the protagonist) and his father, Albert, where especially enjoyable. They seems to have a complicated relationship, but one that is fun to watch unfold. The subtle humor throughout the audiobook was a nice contrast to some of the more violent and crime-orientated scenes.

Any additional comments?

To me, this audiobook reads like an action movie. There wasn't a single point where I lost interest. I wanted to keep listening to see what happens next. Just when you're ready to stop at the end of a chapter, something happened that makes you want to keep listening. I really enjoyed listening and hope the hear more from this author in the future.
