Finder is an action-adventure space opera done right, filled with death-defying acts and sheer luck of our thieving protagonist. There’s never a dull moment as we cycle through fight scenes, devious plots, and the nearly impossible task of stealing and delivering the payload. It’s a fun time and I enjoyed going along for the ride.
Every piece of the puzzle fits together well. You’ve got the tough, confident repo man with a surprising past who has the know-how to get himself through a heist. You’ve got crime bosses vying for a piece of him as he threatens their hold on their small corner of space. You’ve got an impossible mission that just might work out. And there’s a mysterious alien race always on the periphery.
From the first moment, the action never stops. The plans continue to get more unbelievable, leaving you somewhat amazed this guy is still alive. He’s incredibly resourceful and luck is definitely on his side. The constant plot excitement is equally fueled by a strong story and great worldbuilding. I love a good action story, and this one keeps you going page after page.
Overall, Finder is the kind of space opera that fits the genre well. With a quirky protagonist, an interesting cast of supporting characters, and a universe filled with secrets and surprise, the book is a win-win.
