“Finder shows off his top-notch storytelling skills, moving with ease from high places to low in the nation's capital.”—Kirkus Reviews
“Finder really knows his way around a thriller, and his sensibilities about Washington, scandal, and the immediacy—and threat—of digital publishing and electronic surveillance seem chillingly plausible. This is an exciting, insightful thriller with finely sketched characters—in other words, a sure bet in public libraries.”—Booklist (starred review)
“[A] tight plot, sharp dialogue, and a cast of intriguing characters keep the story a cut above the genre pack.”—Publishers Weekly
“Finder (The Fixer) shows off his clever storytelling skills by packing action, politics, and modern detective techniques into a complicated plotline that leads to murder.”—Library Journal
“This is a dark tale of intrigue and underhanded politics…If you’re a Finder fan, this book will not disappoint you. If you’re not, you might become one after this read.”—Suspense Magazine
“Finder’s prose is lean, the pacing swift and agile, and the plot well worth gossiping about.”—Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Guilty Minds balances its thriller tenets with solid characters...razor-sharp dialogue, and a breathless plot that careens from one realistic twist to another.”—Mystery Scene Magazine
“The plot of Guilty Minds...is taut, rapid, and tensely recurving.”—Harvard Magazine
“Finder is one of the best contemporary thriller writers.”—Connecticut Post
Praise for Joseph Finder and The Fixer
“A master of the modern thriller.”—The Boston Globe
“There are many authors who take a reader 'slowly into that good night.' However, the real genius knows how to create the ultimate lead-in. They are the wordsmiths who can, in one page or one paragraph, grab the reader's attention and never let go....A true genius wordsmith, this is one author who has created solid suspense gold.”—Suspense Magazine
“Finder can make reading about someone walking across a room excruciatingly suspenseful....This is a thriller that is as much about redemption as it is about escape. A remarkable exciting read.”—Booklist (starred review)
“If you’re in the mood for tense, witty angst about closed-down career opportunities and dirty money cleansed by family redemption, The Fixer is the way to go.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Joseph Finder takes a familiar story and gives it a unique spin in his latest page-turner, The Fixer.”—Associated Press

Mr Finder's characters were believable and well filled out. All together he has put out a terrific book. I enjoyed every word of it.
Heller's tradecraft is on display throughout, while his physical skills also get a workout. Perhaps the only dings are the ease with which specialized equipment can be obtained and the megalomanical, paranoid mastermind who is just a bit too cocky. The involvement of digital features is well done and advances the plot without creating the impression that the whole affair could have been wrapped up while staying at a keyboard the whole time. The introduction of the "damaged" reporter also offers potential for future installments as both a romantic interest as well as a semi-partner if needed. Finder rarely disappoints and this one is well worth the time.

Perhaps most important, Guilty Minds is timely. It raises issues that should be at the forefront of our civic discussions: privacy, reputation, public expectations, scrutiny of the connected an powerful, what the propensity for gossip does to public discourse, etc. All this within the context of a thriller masterly told. So it's compelling on many levels.
I also admire and appreciate the meticulous research. It created a strong verisimilitude and helped give depth to the characters.
Though part of the Nick Heller series, it's stands on its own. What the reader needs to know about earlier books is woven seamlessly into the narrative.
The only issue I had with the book, unavoidable perhaps given the structure and plot, was that it felt like two stories, what I'll call the action thriller emerging from a detective narrative. The interlacing was skillful, and the two - I can't really call them different genres - I'll call them frameworks resolve at the close, after the action climax.
The first half is thought-provoking, the second half a roller coaster. Both are compelling. It's a great read in the genre and stands with the best of them.
I look forward to the next installment of the Haller series!

In this episode, Heller moves away from his regular Boston to Washington DC, to investigate when a Supreme Court Justice is threatened with an exposé from a scandal sheet, citing untruths about a dalliance with a call-girl. But when the hooker is found dead from a supposed suicide, the story begins to move in a totally different and deadly direction.
Strong characters, well written and all with the obligatory twist in the tail, what's not to like about Mr Finder's latest blockbuster? Not a lot it seems.
Well paced and very descriptive in its narrative. A true "page-turner" that flows and flows along with suspense and intelligence.
One of the very few occasions when I can say here that "all those 5 and 4 star reviews are true and are not FAKE REVIEWS!"
Thank you Mr. Finder.......please, keep 'em coming !!
