Harry Bridger helps people run from their enemies. But when he arranges for Angela Linehan and her son to disappear abroad from her violent husband in London, little does he know that his life will depend on finding her again.

It’s a job that reawakens Harry’s past and brings him back into contact with his ex-wife Bethany. Fate has given him a second chance to redeem himself in her eyes.

But Angela’s disappearance puts Harry and Bethany in terrible danger. He risks losing everything unless he can find where Angela is hiding in Central America. The clock is ticking and his finely honed tracking skills no longer apply. Chance and luck will decide everything.

This was a good mystery/thriller. I think fans of Lee Child's Jack Reacher series will enjoy this book. I enjoyed how not everyone is as they seem in this book, like an onion, this book has characters with layers and a character we see as likable, may not be quite as likable after all.

Harry is a little bit of a mess but he is a likable mess. He knows some shady characters and uses his skills to find Angela on such a tight deadline. This is a stand alone book but I could see it as becoming part of a series. I liked that although, I had my detective hat on, I did not see the ending coming.

A great read, thoroughly enjoyed it. The story ran along at great pace with good, believable characters. I couldn't put it down and hope this is the start of a series about Harry Bridger.

There are books that bore me, books that capture my attention and I enjoy reading, and occasionally I come across a book that draws me in so deeply that I can think of little else, and if I could, I would quit working just so I could have enough time to finish it. This book is from the latter category. Quite often when a plot is in the edge-of-your seat moments, I will remind myself that it is just a book and of course the main character will be fine. With this book important people are dropping like flies and I wasn't so sure it was all going to be ok in the long run. That thought had me on the edge of my seat--waiting to find out the outcome. (And I'm not going to tell you how it ends either! Read the book and find out!) I highly recommend this one if you like twisting, exciting plots.

by NetGalley reviewer

The hits just keep on coming (often literally) in Claver’s auspicious British crime thriller… it’s an engaging read that manages some surprises amid all the familiar genre tropes. The scenes of physical menace, in particular, are all the more effective in Claver’s elliptical style… A novel about a finder that’s a real find.
