Claire Heller Chapman, a Harvard Law School professor and a high-powered attorney, has just attained a national reputation for her work on several high-profile cases. Her second husband, Tom Chapman, is a successful money manager who adores Claire and her six-year-old daughter. They live in a beautiful house and lead a glamorous and happy life.

Then a random burglary turns their world upside down. A routine police investigation reveals that Tom is not who he says he is. He never attended the college he said he did. He once had a different name. He once was, Claire learns, a secret operative for the U.S. government. When he is suddenly arrested and put on trial for a crime he insists he didn't commit - an unspeakable atrocity carried out 13 years ago - she puts her reputation on the line to defend him. The case is tried in a top-secret court-martial, conducted by the Pentagon, in which all the evidence is classified, and the rules are unlike any Claire has ever known.

The audio includes an excerpt from Vanished, the first Nick Heller novel.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Les Edgerton | 2/11/2014

    " Haven't read a Finder novel yet that wasn't superb. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derk | 2/6/2014

    " A routine book with some good parts. My first book by this author. Maybe 3.5 stars for the good parts, which were mainly court room scenes. The plot was far fetched as many are, but it moved along at reasonable speed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lennox | 1/27/2014

    " Thriller! Dad got it for me without having read it himself when I was in the 5th grade. It had the word "fuck" in it. Thrilling, indeed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robbie | 1/21/2014

    " All of his books I've read are excellent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ropajo | 1/20/2014

    " fast read. good story. twist at end; figured was coming. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mailmanr5 | 1/17/2014

    " Actually read the 1998 hardcover. First read of a Finder novel. Plot premise pretty good- military court martial of a now civilian. Seems like the whole military has picked someone to cover up a massacre as a fall guy. His lawyer wife defends him. It was too easy to figure out the ending and was ultimately disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 1/15/2014

    " Second boook I have read by this author (Paranoia was the first). This one was a good fiction thriller. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven Farmer | 12/18/2013

    " This was made into an excellent movie with Morgan Freeman. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chelsea | 12/15/2013

    " Dreadful book, the characters were weak, the story was painful and unoriginal. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara Rutledge | 11/9/2013

    " I liked the book, but I loved the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Herzog | 9/4/2013

    " A very entertaining book based upon both military hijinks and a trial. The plot keeps you guessing as to the guilt or innocence of the husband with a twist on the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 3/20/2013

    " A nice story with some good twists but it ended a bit flat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jane O'keeffe | 2/3/2013

    " Decent plot but quite predictable - particularly the ending "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sanjay Gopal | 7/30/2012

    " First time reader of this author's books and it was a good one. Kept the suspense till the very end. Gives a little bit of insight into the world of military justice mixed with the murky world of politics in the US (although largely fiction, of course; or is it?). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neisha | 5/4/2012

    " This book was ok. I enjoyed the fine lens Finder directs towards military law. However, I found some parts of this book to be tiresome, and frankly a little redundant "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan Erhardt | 12/26/2011

    " I knew what would happen at the end about halfway through the book -- and some of the legal talk was pretty boring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christel | 12/23/2011

    " Brilliant:) Now I have to watch the movie again to see how it compares to the book;) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 4/30/2011

    " this is a mystery and i enjoy this author!! it has lots of twists and turns with a suprise ending... i recomend this book the characters are good and it holds or should hod your interest "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Les | 4/29/2011

    " Haven't read a Finder novel yet that wasn't superb. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 4/28/2011

    " If you like courtroom drama, you'll like this one. This book centers in a military courts-martial which perhaps enhances the story over a civilian case. Finder's stuff is good! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eric | 4/16/2011

    " I enjoyed the actual procedurals of the trial, but the characters seemed shallow, the writing was simplistic, and the ending didn't earn its twist. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chelsea | 4/4/2011

    " Dreadful book, the characters were weak, the story was painful and unoriginal. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Wendy | 4/3/2011

    " Meh . . . Predictable crime drama. And not a particularly entertaining one at that. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 3/26/2011

    " Excellent. One of Finder's best, second only to Paranoia. Thanks to unusual inclement weather Saturday last week, I zipped through about 2/3 of it in one day, riveted the whole time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindy | 3/12/2011

    " Second boook I have read by this author (Paranoia was the first). This one was a good fiction thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim | 1/27/2011

    " The ending seemed to happen too fast and didn't fit well with the rest of the book.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 11/23/2010

    " Good - didn't realize it was written in the late 90s. Didn't care for any of the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Imani | 7/20/2010

    " This book was an easy, quick read. It can easily be read in 1 day. I would recommend as a traveling book because it has short chapters,a easy plot, and just a few main characters and settings. The ending was a total disappointment, but once you read it; you'll see what I mean. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chuck | 5/7/2010

    " A high profile Boston attorney's husband is arrested and accused of
    a Mei Lai type massacre in El Salvador while he was int the army.
    Good story. I still don't particularly like Finder's writing style.
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steven | 3/2/2010

    " This was made into an excellent movie with Morgan Freeman. "

    " I knew what would happen at the end about halfway through the book -- and some of the legal talk was pretty boring. "
