Home Archives Bio Subscribe Contact. Subscribe in a reader. I can't wait to read one of Joseph Finder's full novels and get the full story of our hero, Nick Heller. The only reason I gave it a 3. I felt as though I planned an extravagant wedding and got left at the altar Side Note: If this author intended to entice new readers with this free short story.. Mission Accomplished!! Feb 02, Matt rated it liked it. A quick lunchtime read to help make some sense of the character that is Nick Heller. Finder admits he did not know many of the attributes about the main character of his series until he put pen to paper.
Was it a must read to understand things? No, not in the least. Was it worth reading? Sure, over your soup and sandwich on a slow work day or while you slurp your oatmeal before doing the crossword puzzle on the weekend. Heller is known for his knee-jerk reaction to things and this sho A quick lunchtime read to help make some sense of the character that is Nick Heller. Heller is known for his knee-jerk reaction to things and this short tale tells it like it is.
A kidnap retrieval that goes along an unexpected path, Finder shows us the leadership that Nick Heller is known to show. Still, just as the story was getting good, it ends. Decent, I suppose, but nothing that bridges the required gaps I was missing in enjoying Finder's work. Jun 12, Emma rated it really liked it Shelves: audio.
Daring escapes and thrilling rescue missions are not my theme of choice so I'm trying to judge this short story objectively. The main fault most reviewers seem to find with this story is the very sudden ending. But I will be contrary as ever and say that I rather expect and respect that in a short story.

How else should such a short work keep you thinking on it long after you've finished? I think it was quite clear what our main character was going to do and having read about that part of the st Daring escapes and thrilling rescue missions are not my theme of choice so I'm trying to judge this short story objectively. I think it was quite clear what our main character was going to do and having read about that part of the story would have made it not a short one. All in all, a quick, fun read listen if not really the genre for me.

I did not like the end and wanted more. I am glad I read the other Nick Heller stories first before this one. I hope people to not read this first and think it is an indication of Finder's stories. Please read the other books first before making up your mind!!
I would definitely recommend Vanished and Buried Secrets, just not this short story. I give it 3 stars and that is being generous, but I love the I love Joseph Finder and his Nick Heller stories, but this short story fell flat. I give it 3 stars and that is being generous, but I love the Nick Heller stories, and I liked this story until the end. It would have been better as a whole book. This was a little teaser short story to get the reader to want to read the full novels featuring this character, and it kind of worked. I'm interested but not enough to purchase it, but if I find it on a swap site I'll take it.
This is a short.. I like the premise of the story and was really into it when suddenly I guess you could call it ended.. I felt this story has potential to be a great novel, with lots of twists. But the book felt unfinished and actually turned me away from another stories by Joseph Finder.
May 29, Mike rated it it was ok. It's bad, really. Oh, and I didn't tell you I fixed it because I'm part of a short story that probably should have had more thought put into the plot. Jan 06, Sharon rated it really liked it Shelves: read-in Another good short story that caught me off guard when it ended Nick Heller is the man but in my opinion, Joseph Finder is a little wordy. This story was about girl who was kidnapped and Nick Heller was hired to save her but things are never as they appear I recommend.
Loved it. Seeing as how plan A did not work out the way he wanted Nick Heller has resorted to Plan B in this short story.
I think Mr. Finder has left it up to the imagination of the reader to figure out what Plan B is, I think I know. I liked how this story moved along and I hope Nick works more with Benito, very good working relationship between the two. Jun 10, Angela rated it really liked it. This was an audible freebie which I really enjoyed. I liked the surprise ending and I think I will probably be checking out some of the other works by this author.
Feb 03, John rated it really liked it. My actual rating would be closer to 3.
The story moved well without a lot of back ground details as a short story should. I will read more Nick Heller books in this story. Jan 07, Larry Page rated it really liked it Shelves: kindle. A suspenseful short story by Joseph Finder.
A real page turner that gets your attention from page one to it's surprise abrupt ending. Finder could have continued this one chapter story into a longer novel and hopefully, perhaps some day he will. I realize this is supposed to be a short story. Even the language that used is Bahasa Indonesian.
I had an urge to get to know this person. One day I introduced him to Javanese pentatonics pieces. Beberapa kali kami berkarya bersama dan lagu-lagu bernada Jawa mulai terdengar di albumnya.
Crime Fiction Dossier: Read This Book: "Plan B" by Joseph Finder
Karya ini membawaku sering memijak tanah Eropa. Tanah yang kutunjuk saat aku melontarkan mimpiku ke angkasa di depan para sahabatku.
mostfitarabins.cf Negara Jerman kujajaki beberapa kali. Budaya peradaban tua Eropa kuperhatikan dan amati. Kuunduh informasi dan pelajaran hidup, berkaca kepada cermin yang sama sekali berbeda dengan apa yang kulihat biasanya. This work brought me to step on the land of Europe. The land that I pointed when I threw my dream into the sky, witnessed by my best friends. I visited my aunt in Germany. I observed the European civilization, downloading information and a lot of lessons about life. I gazed upon a completely different mirror than I usually gaze into. Kuhabiskan bertahun-tahun berada di Spanyol hingga mempelajari bahasanya.
Kerinduan mendalam akan Jawa di antara kehancuran ekologi semakin kurasa. Lalu kuketahui bahwa di dunia barat ada sebuah teori jaman bernama Anthropocene. Jaman di mana manusialah yang mempengaruhi perubahan iklim dan lelehnya glasier di kutub utara serta selatan. Yang bisa membantu manusianya untuk bertahan dan mulai membuat perubahan, adalah kembali kepada kearifan lokal.
Kucari lagi Jawaku, mendekati ari-ariku yang ditanam di bumi Malang. The deep longing of Jawa in between the collapsing ecology got much stronger than ever. The word anthropocene started to get introduced into my daily dictionary.
