Sequel to: Guilty minds.
"Nick Heller, private spy, exposes secrets that powerful people would rather keep hidden. At the funeral of his good friend Sean, an army buddy who once saved Nick's life and had struggled with opioid addiction since returning wounded from war, a stranger approaches Nick with a job. The woman is a member of the Kimball family, whose immense fortune was built on opiates. Now she wants to become a whistleblower, exposing evidence that Kimball Pharmaceutical knew its biggest money-maker drug, Oxydone, was dangerously addictive and led directly to the overdoses and deaths of people like Sean. Nick agrees instantly, eager to avenge Sean's death, but he quickly finds himself entangled in the complicated family dynamics of the Kimball dynasty. The other Kimball siblings view Nick as the enemy, and at least one will do anything to keep him from exposing the patriarch's guilt. And Nick discovers he is not the only private investigator employed by a Kimball scion. His old lover Maggie has also been hired, reuniting the two after a conflict when they both worked at the Pentagon years ago. Nick and Maggie soon realize the sins of the Kimball patriarch are just the beginning. Beneath the surface are the barely concealed cabals and conspiracies: a twisting story of family intrigue and lethal corporate machinations.

*Starred Review* Finder is a master of the narrow escape. In his stand-alone thrillers, his protagonists are abruptly plunged from ordinary lives into mazes that other people have constructed; their survival depends on finding the way out. In his Nick Heller series (this is the fourth), the hero, a former Special Forces A-team leader in Iraq and Afghanistan and now a Boston private eye, actively seeks out mazes, escaping from one, only to fall into the next. At the center of this mystery is the opioid epidemic, especially its devastating effect on veterans. Heller's best friend from Special Forces has just died of an opioid overdose. The would-be whistleblower daughter of a pharma company scion seeks Heller out to discover hidden documents that prove the company knowingly profited from peddling addictive products. Heller, propelled by anguish over his friend's death, uses all of his Special Forces skills and his quirky assistant's techno wizardry to find the documents. The extended scenes of Heller breaking and entering into a mansion and, later, a corporation are exquisitely detailed. Finder's characterization of Heller gets more layered with every installment. The way Heller moves through the mystery, using social skills, street smarts, and technology to get in and out of trouble, is breathtaking. Excruciating suspense. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
