When successful Atlanta lawyer Leonard Martin loses his family--wife, daughter and grandchildren--to a vicious strain of e.coli, he wins a six-million-dollar settlement and promptly disappears. Three years later, Martin begins gunning down those connected to Knowland, the meat-packing company responsible, one by one, from line workers to high-powered investment bankers. Vietnam vet Walter Sherman, aka the Locator, is the very expensive independent contractor those high-powered bankers hire to find the killer.

Excellent writing and plot development. Readers need to ignore any ties to the TV series which I also liked but they are two different birds only sharing concept. Ambivalent ending indeed not all Hollywood happy and perhaps like life-why do we so need happy endings?

I loved the TV series, "The Finder". I'm looking forward to reading the books the series is based on.

Aaargh! What a disappointment! Where the TV series had whimsy & humor, this book is very much a guy thing. No appeal to me at all. Unless you like testosterone-filled adventures & sexism, avoid this.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed "The Finder", but this engrossing well-written novel could've been the basis of a much better show if they hadn't tried to turn Walter's quirks into a comedy. This book was really incredible, but needs to be appreciated on it's own, not as "the basis of..." status.

Tedious. Did not finish.

I picked up this book after watching the pilot of the TV show (a special episode of Bones called "the Finder"). This is not at all like it. It reads more like a John Grisham novel. Once I got over the shock, I was pleasantly surprised. The story was engrossing, taught, and well-told. The book features complex storytelling through a variety of viewpoints, and didn't really sell the "Locator" subtitle.
I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to Kathy Reichs fans looking for something similar.

Very good character development. Sadly an ambivalent ending. Otherwise, a great read.
