Guilty Minds by Joseph Finder


26892023

Guilty Minds is the third book in Joseph Finder’s Nick Heller series.   Please check my archives if you are interested in reading my reviews of books one and two.

Investigator Nick Heller has had some harrowing cases so far and he comes into the ring fighting on each new case.  His clients are usually very rich and powerful and if there’s one thing Nick has known since childhood, it’s that the rich and powerful usually have secrets.  Nick might be a little paranoid but he’s pretty sure there’s always a lie at the bottom of each case he takes on, and once he uncovers that lie, that’s when he’s really onto something.

Nick agrees to return to Washington D.C. to meet with a mysterious client who won’t reveal his identity or any details until Nick meets him in person.  His client is revealed to be Gideon Parnell, senior counsel at Shays Abbot.  Gideon is the ultimate Washington insider and power broker with friends in high places.  His dear friend, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, is about to have a gossip rag publish a scurrilous story involving the judge’s relationship with an escort.  Parnell wants Nick to derail this explosive story before it gains momentum.  But when the call girl is killed and political scandal is certain, Nick once again begins to search for the truth behind the lies he’s been fed.

Nick Heller continues to be a strong, many-faceted and likeable lead character.  The books in this series are real page-turners; escapist thrillers that touch on contemporary topics and investigative techniques.  Joseph Finder’s writing is excellent and he keeps the energy level high.

I want to thank the publisher (PENGUIN GROUP Dutton) for providing me with the ARC through NetGalley for an honest review.
