5.0 out of 5 stars This time... it's personal. 13 Aug 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the second in the line of Atticus Kodiak novels by fantastic writer Greg Rucka. In his first book (KEEPER) I found it hard to put it down, with this book, to stop reading took an act of God or nature.
Rucka grabs your attention strait away with square jawed bodyguard Atticus Kodiak saving the life of his former lovers daughter, 15 year old Erika Wyatt, when he is working as a bouncer in a fettish club.
From that point on the book starts on a rollercoster of thrill, drama, and action as Atticas go's up against professional mercenerys, who will stop at nouthing to get to Erika.
This is book take the saying 'breathtaking' litraly and sets your heart racing and the pages turning. Truly one of the greatest thillers I have ever read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gritty, With Heart 7 Sep 2002
By Eric Wilson - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Rucka does certain things masterfully. His dialogue crackles with realism and intensity; his characters breathe down your back, they're so alive; and the emotions he conveys are rich without being melodramatic. Atticus Kodiak, his protaganist, moves in a circle of foul-mouthed, partying friends, yet maintains a style all his own in the midst of the muck about him.
Here, again, Atticus Kodiak is at work as a bodyguard, this time watching over the daughter of his former lover. Erika's all grown up now--or thinks she is--and isn't always hip to the idea of his guardianship. What's truly eating young Erika, though, is the power struggle between her despicable parents. She takes out her frustrations on those sent to protect her, but finds a friend in Kodiak's off-and-on romantic interest, Bridgett. With trained assassins opposing Kodiak's team, the odds seem stacked against him, but he manages to come through...not without some physical and emotional scars along the way.
If you're a fan of G-rated mysteries (in the Mrs. Pollifax vein), steer clear of Kodiak. If you like your mysteries tough and gritty, with a bit of heart (think Dashiell Hammett after the sexual revolution), then give this series a shot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better then Keeper 5 May 2000
By Matthew Wang - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought this second adventure of Atticus was even better then the first. Although there are some implausible events, I felt it was an entertaining read with an air of tension. Atticus seems cut from the down on the luck hero rather then the invicible superman cloth that arises too often these days. If you can't see the movies one night and are in the mood for an action detective type flick definitely pick this up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bodyguard that cares-a delighful read 19 May 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Professional bodyguard Atticus Kodiak lost his best friend during his last assignment. The
incident leaves him extremely wary to be entrusted guarding the life of another human being.
Working as a bouncer in a New York S&M club, he is horrified to recognize fifteen year old
Erika, the daughter of the couple he once guarded when he still served with the Marines.
Although he had an affair with her mother, Atticus always thought of Erika as his little sister. Even
without having seen her in four years, his protective instincts surface. He quickly hustles her out of
the club and back to his apartment. When he awakens in the morning, she is long gone.
....When he goes to her father's house to see if she went back home, he finds a very angry old man
dying of AIDS, whose lone joy in life is scoring off his ex-wife. Both of them use Erika as the
battleground and given his history with the family, Atticus is shocked when his ex-boss hires him
to watch over Erika. Apparently, she is the bait between two sets of British trained agents. One
works for Erika's mother. The other works for her father. Atticus becomes caught up in a
maelstrom of slush funds, rogue agents, and multiple deceptions as he seeks to protect his young
charge from becoming killed, or perhaps even worse.
......Greg Rucka's breezy style of writing makes for a fast-paced, exciting story line filled with fully
developed three dimensional characters that readers will easily care about, especially Atticus.
The audience's involvement with the characters turns FINDER into a wonderful reading
experience that is easy to start, but impossible to put down until it is finished. The main
protagonist is a complex anti-hero, who is still learning about himself and his environment. It is
easy to feel sympathetic towards him especially when he becomes his own worst enemy by
allowing emotions such as love and trust get in the way of his job. It will be fascinating to see how
Atticus grows and changes in subsequent tales.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Finder" delivers action with intelligence and heart 25 Jun 1997
By A Customer - Published on
"Finder" is the follow-up to Greg Rucka's highly praised debut "Keeper." Rucka's hard boiled hero is Atticus Kodiak, ex-military bodyguard and detective who now has his own freelance personal security service. The end of the last book left Kodiak physically and emotionally battered, and this book opens with him working below his potential as a bouncer at a club catering to the New York S&M scene. He is pulled out of his slump when he encounters the daughter of a colonel for whom he had provided security while at the Pentagon, Erica Wyatt. After this chance encounter, he is thrust into the role of her protector. Once he is forced into this role, his personal life, past and present, violently collides with his duty to protect his client and his need to find the truth behind the lies that everyone is telling. Rucka shows again that he has mastered two very important skills in the page-turning genre: he writes interesting, well-drawn, and complex characters, and he knows how to write a chapter, that when it ends, compels you to read the next one. Once "Finder" gets going, just as with "Keeper," you won't want to get off until you get through the entire wild ride. I dropped everything to mentally sprint through the last 60 pages alongside the hero. I highly recommend this book and its predecessor, and I truly look forward to the next one

5.0 out of 5 stars Spoilers? 12 May 2008
By J. E. Terryberry - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
So I'm about 1/2 way through Keeper (the previous novel) and I decided to order Finder since I'm enjoying the Kodiak character. Unfortunately the Amazon review of the book gives away the (an?) ending to Keeper in the first sentence. I guess it's expected but annoying nonetheless.
