Jin-Li, a beautiful and secretive Chinese woman who becomes involved in a plot to steal valuable information from corporations in New York City, is forced to go on the run when her complicity is discovered by powerful New Yorkers who stand to lose a fortune, while her secretive former lover, Ray Grant, races against time to find her before her enemies do.

McMillan Palgrave
There's no doubt about it: Colin Harrison is a master storyteller. Critics and readers love his gripping, dark books. It's hard not to get sucked into his world. Entertainment Weekly calls him the "class act of the urban thriller," Michiko Kakutani of The New York Times lauds him as "a master of mood and atmosphere," and Publishers Weekly crows that Harrison writes "like an angel."
Now the author of The Havana Room, Afterburn, and Manhattan Nocturne raises the stakes with an electrifying new thriller, The Finder. Harrison spins the story of a young, beautiful, secretive Chinese woman, Jin-Li, who gets involved in a brilliant scheme to steal valuable information from corporations in New York City. When the plan is discovered by powerful New Yorkers who stand to lose enormous sums of money, Jin-Li goes on the run. Meanwhile, her former lover, Ray Grant, a man who was out of the country for years but has recently returned, is caught up in the search for her. Ray has not been forthcoming to Jin-Li about why he left New York or what he was doing overseas, but his training and strengths will be put to the ultimate test against those who are unmerciful in their desire to regain a fortune lost. Ray is going to have to find Jin-Li, and he is going to have to find her fast.


Blackwell North Amer
When a beautiful young Chinese woman living in New York City named Jin Li agrees to take a car ride with two illegal Mexican women to Brooklyn late one night, little does she know that in minutes she will be running for her life.
Why is Jin Li running for her life? Because the young woman is not exactly who she claims to be - and knows things she should not. The people desperately interested in her fate soon include a profane and aggressive hedge-fund billionaire; a sadistic goon who likes to spike people's drinks with concoctions of his own devising; an outsized woman of capacious desires who owns a Brooklyn check-cashing operation; a talented, high-powered Manhattan executive with a very expensive problem he needs to hide; a ruthless criminal speculator in the Chinese stock markets; a brilliant NYPD detective lying on his deathbed; and, above all, Jin Li's ex-boyfriend Ray, a quiet man with disturbing scars and a past he won't discuss.
