“Ferguson’s trademark wit abounds in this exuberant, entertaining and unconventional novel.”
—?SHARI LAPENA, New York Times bestselling author of Someone We Know
“Witty, exuberant. . . . Part thriller and part travelogue, this highly original novel offers punchy storytelling and vividly portrayed locales. Ferguson is bound to win new fans with this one.”
—?Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
“So much fun.?Filled with memorable characters and exotic locations, Will Ferguson's new book should be enjoyed by thriller fans, travel aficionados, and those that like a story where you have no idea where it's going to take you. It's an interesting and rewarding universe that Ferguson's mind occupies. I want a cottage there.”
—?DREW HAYDEN TAYLOR, author of Motorcycles & Sweetgrass
“Ferguson demonstrates the keen attention to place crucial to the travel writer’s trade: local lore and mores are explained in considerable depth, milieus are vividly depicted with an eye for the smallest of details. . . . While promising a thriller, Ferguson has instead delivered a powerful, if subdued, novel of thwarted dreams, loss and lingering pain, soul-deep conflicts, and the strong, often faltering drive for connection and redemption. The Finder is, finally, the best sort of con: one that pays off and leaves the victim—the reader—grateful for having been taken for a ride.”
