Finder's Fee: A Review

Rich and powerful, Judith Find has it all until she gets a phone call. The mysterious voice tells her the world will know the past she has kept hidden unless she helps rescue a kidnapped boy. Determined to keep her secret, she teams up with Luke, who was also threatened. Together they must find the boy before their past is revealed, ruining their future.

This is the first book I've read by Alton Gansky, and I enjoyed it. Judith and Luke are flawed but likeable characters, and the plot moves at a brisk pace, moving from one dramatic event to another as the two race across the country to find a little boy. The author does a great job of keeping the reader surprised at what happens next.

I also like the side story of fertility treatments and a possible repercussion of toying with genetics. Gansky played with the what ifs of genetic tampering, and a little more into that part of the story would have been interesting.

After reading this book, I plan to check out others by this author.
