Trace Conger: The Shadow Broker

shadow broker Trace Conger Murder in Common suspense thriller corruption murder

Caffeinated probing:

Dark resolve

 

Finn Harding wonders when exactly he crossed the line. It’s as ambiguous to the reader as to him but it’s a line which he straddles and a line which he leaps-over as circumstances necessitate. This is in keeping with a PI who has lost his license but continues to accept shady commissions’ off-book.

 

Bishop runs an Internet site trading in black market information and is being blackmailed by a hacker. Finding people is Finn’s forte and Bishop hires him to unearth the culprit. Happy with his success Bishop offers Finn additional work which is where, not unexpectedly, the trouble escalates.

Finn moves deeper into corruption knowing his acts puts him in an untenable position. He operates with two minds, aware of his folly but unable to stop himself. As the book moves forward Finn calculates his odds of survival – they’re low.

Why and how is this character so likeable? Conger wrote him that way and it revolves around Finn’s love for his family. A great debut novel that was a finalist for the 2015 Shamus Award for Best Indie P.I. Novel.

      Hello! So nice to meet another CriFi blogger. Great review for Trace’s Shadow Broker he’ll appreciate it. I haven’t had a chance to read his 2nd book Scar Tissue yet but am sure it will be enjoyable.
