Review of The Shadow Broker by Trace Conger.

Review of The Shadow Broker by Trace Conger.

by John Andersen for Julie’s Book Reviews

"Finn Harding (Mr. Finn to his clients) specializes in finding people who don’t want to be found.
Stripped of his PI license, he begins working for the type of clientele who operate in the
shadows, pay in cash, and don’t care if he’s licensed or not.
As Finn becomes ensnared in a plot to take over a black market information brokerage, he finds
himself and his family straddling the thin line between life and death. With his own clients
gunning for him, Finn must evade a psychopathic killer, special agents from the FBI’s
cybercrime unit, and a Detroit mob boss. He’s about to find out that working with criminals has
its advantages. Staying alive isn’t one of them."

This was a thoroughly enjoyable novel to read. From the first page it grabbed your attention and
never let go, even through the many twists and turns the main character was put through, and
which the author masterfully pulled together in the closing chapters. Mr. Conger is obviously
very familiar with the workings of the Internet, but is able to explain it to his readers in layman’s
terms, and incorporate it into an unusual, but intriguing tale of greed and corruption. I feel that,
with a little more character development and a clearer explanation in a few spots, it would have
rated higher than the three and a half stars I am giving it. I do look forward to Mr. Conger’s next
novel with great anticipation.

3 1/2 stars
