"New York Timesbestselling author Joseph Finder delivers an exhilarating and timely thriller exploring how even the most powerful among us can be brought down by scandal, and how the lies we tell one another--and ourselves--can never truly stay buried. The chief justice of the Supreme Court is about to be defamed by a powerful gossip website called Slander Sheet, which specializes in dirt on celebs and politicians. Their top reporter has written an expose claiming that he had liaisons with an escort, a young woman willing to appear on video and tell the world her salacious yet convincing tale. But the chief justice is not without formidable allies, and his greatest supporter is determined to stop the story in its tracks. Nick Heller is a private spy--a private intelligence operative based in Boston, hired by lawyers, politicians, and even foreign governments. Known as both a maverick and a dedicated, high-powered investigator, he's called to Washington, DC, to help out in this delicate, potentially explosive situation. Nick has just forty-eight hours to prove the story about the chief justice is baseless. But when the call girl is found murdered, the case takes an unexpected and dangerous turn, and Nick resolves to find the true mastermind behind the Slander Sheet story before anyone else falls victim to the maelstrom of political scandal and ruined reputations predicated upon one carefully concealed secret"-- Provided by publisher.

There should be a new category called "fantasy thrillers" where the main character has these indispensable side kicks:
1. Assistant with CIA level hacking skills and state of the art tech tools
2. A civil servant who doesn't mind doing multiple illegal record searches
3. A kind-hearted mafia member who has encyclopedic knowlege of the bad guys
4. A highly placed government official who sings like a canary

All the protagonist has to do is guess what info these fairy godpeople can supply to him, use his unlimited credit cards and be charming.

Formulaic and predictable, don't bother.

A good plot with the usual twists. I've enjoyed other Finder's books more than this one. I would, however, recommend it to Finder fans.

Nick Heller is like "Jack Reacher Lite".

Finder keeps getting better and better, he appears to be that rare fiction author who keeps evolving. It opens with the main character meeting his client, a Vernon Jordan-like character, and the twists and turns keep coming. Very topical fiction!
