Finder's Fee by Alton Gansky

3 1/2 Stars

Judith Find and Luke Becker are an unlikely couple. Strangers thrown together by a master manipulator, threatening to reveal their ugly secrets they have managed to keep hidden for twenty years. To prevent such revelations, Judith, the high profile interior designer and Luke, a introverted yet successful stockbroker, begin their search for a unique eight year old, Abel Palek, whose very life is in the balance should Judith and Luke fail.

Alton Gansky, a prolific writer, creates a thought-provoking suspenseful novel addressing the topical issues of infertility and genetic engineering. Judith and Luke are interesting, multi-dimensional characters and Gansky uses them to illustrate that greed and desperation when one is young and ambitious can result in unwise decisions with longstanding consequences. The story is well told and the tension is maintained throughout the story. I was somewhat distracted by some believability issues however fans of Gansky's work will, no doubt, be happy to overlook. Finder's Fee is the first book I have read by Alton Gansky and I would be happy to seek out his back list for more of his offerings!

Finder's Fee releases in May, 2007, published by Zondervan.
