The Finn Files: The First Three Mr. Finn Cases - ASIN B081VLY8VN

When finding criminals is your business, it’s easy to make a killing. 

This collection contains the first three books in The Finn Files series by the award-winning author Trace Conger. 

Finn Harding (Mr. Finn to his clients) specializes in finding people who don’t want to be found. Stripped of his P.I. license, Finn 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.

Finn takes on challenging cases and soon finds out that while working with criminals has its advantages, staying alive isn’t one of them. Trace Conger delivers sharp-edged and gritty tales of crime, murder, and family. These are fast-paced crime thrillers that hold nothing back.

The Finn Files include:

1. The Shadow Broker (WINNER of a Shamus Award for Best Indie P.I. Novel)

2. Scar Tissue

3. The Prison Guard’s Son

“Dark, twisted, and remarkably clever. Trace Conger is establishing himself as one of the most original voices in crime fiction.” – Gregory Petersen, author of Open Mike. 

“The Mr. Finn series breathes new life into the P.I. genre…These are some of the most fully realized characters I’ve encountered in a long time, and this is one of the best detective series I’ve ever read.” – Gumshoes, Gats and Gams 

“Conger’s writing is direct. It moves clearly and quickly, perfect for thrillers… With Finn, Conger has created a distinctive and most likely enduring main character…” – Ronald Tierney, author of the Deets Shanahan Mysteries.

Joshua has been a thief all his life. The biggest score he’s ever seen just fell into his lap. There are stacks of cash in a backroom practically waiting for the right crew to grab them. The planning and preparation have been painstaking, but years in the game have brought Joshua to this moment . . . and he’s ready!

So why is there a knot in his stomach whenever Joshua wakes up in the morning? Maybe it’s because the job breaks every rule that has kept him safe all these years.

The girl who’s making him wonder if there’s something more to life than just the next score.

Only two weeks to get everything set. When the big night comes, bullets fly and friends become enemies. This job is going to end in a test of all Joshua’s skills, and a reckoning with all his demons.

The Hit

A mysterious hitman opens fire on a Tel Aviv café and opens a Pandora’s box.

It is a warm and sunny day when gunfire destroys the peace of lunchtime diners at a trendy café in central Tel Aviv. The shots, fired by a mysterious biker, hit several people, and two of them die on the spot: Kobi Ozri, a former criminal and police informer, and a young woman, a local office worker. Kobi’s handler, Hadas Levinger, is immediately brought in to solve the double murder. As she mourns Kobi’s death and confronts a public storm about the powerlessness of the police in their battle against the underworld, Hadas sets out on a journey full of startling twists and turns, until she exposes the surprising truth – all the while facing shattering revelations in her personal life.
