Joseph Finder introduced Nick Heller, a "private spy" who finds out things powerful people want to keep hidden, to widespread acclaim from the critics and wild enthusiasm from the readers, in the New York Times bestselling novel Vanished. Now, in Buried Secrets, Nick Heller returns, finding himself in the middle of a life-or-death situation that's both high-profile and intensely personal. Nick has returned to his old home town of Boston to set up his own shop. There he's urgently summoned by an old family friend. Hedge fund titan Marshall Marcus desperately needs Nick's help. His teenaged daughter, Alexa, has just been kidnapped. Her abduction was clearly a sophisticated professional job, done with extraordinary precision. Alexa, whom Nick has known since she was young, is now buried alive, held prisoner in an underground crypt, a camera trained on her, her suffering streaming live over the internet. She's been left with a limited supply of food and water and, if her father doesn't meet the demands of her shadowy kidnappers, she'll die. And as Nick begins to probe, he discovers that all is not quite right with Marshall Marcus's business. He's being investigated by the FBI, he has a lot of shady investors, his fund is in danger and now he has a lot of powerful enemies who may have the motivation to go after Marcus's daughter. But to find out who's holding Alexa Marcus hostage, Nick has to find out why. Once he does, he uncovers an astonishing conspiracy that reaches far beyond anything he could have imagined. And if he's going to find Alexa in time, he will have to flush out and confront some of his deadliest opponents ever.

Buried Secrets is a suspense novel that takes place primarily in the trendy Buckhead area of modern-day Atlanta. The story centers around twenty-nine-year-old real estate broker Anne Houston as well as the dysfunctional Carmichael family, one of the most wealthy and powerful families in the United States. The Carmichael family is headed by billionaire airline owner Hugh Carmichael, who has acquired most of his wealth through illegal means and lives a very extravagant lifestyle. In contrast to the flashy Carmichaels, Anne Houston is a single mother of a one-year-old son, a woman who is struggling to escape her troubled past and make a fresh start in Atlanta. Not long after arriving in the city, her unlikely appearance at a social gathering at a Buckhead mansion sparks a romantic relationship between herself and Hugh Carmichael, who initially leads her to believe that he is single. Her resulting connection to the billionaire family causes her to become entangled in a web of lies and scandalous deceit involving multiple murders, two bizarre kidnappings, the glare of the national news media, and a mysterious secret that has been harbored for decades. In addition to this, Anne is also being stalked by a psychopathic maniac who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. With all of these obstacles threatening to bring destruction to Anne and her young son, she becomes friends with Rick Fowler, a detective for the Atlanta Police Department, who caringly helps protect and guide her through her seemingly endless maze of problems.

Do you have a secret? No? Think again... Using simple language for the everyday reader, Buried Secrets gives descriptive accounts from real people who have been depressed with who they are, and how they’ve changed their personality for the better using psychotherapy or ‘the talking cure’. Regardless of age, unwelcome feelings from early memories can return to haunt the present and cause distress, anxiety, mild depression and feelings of revenge. Section one recounts reconstructed stories that indicate how some older people have conquered this and improved their lifestyle, while section two tells of changes made by younger people for the better. The book states that cognitive, positive attributions are memorised and recalled - so why not negative ones? They can be negotiated with and worked through, either with or without support. One can learn that through grieving these feelings, forgiving and moving forward can enhance your life. Buried Secrets leads the way to a brighter future. As Savi says: “Many people and especially the young, undergo emotional suffering through not being able to sort out their problems without some support. Medication relieves anxiety and stress, but does not get to the root of the problem like ‘the talking cure’.”

From the Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist comes what Publishers Weekly called the “definitive study” of the grisly mass killings in Matamoros, Mexico. In the 1980’s, Adolfo Constanzo, devotee of Santería and powerful cult leader opened shop in Mexico City as a fortune-teller. He soon realized that there were greater profits in drug money than the occult, and as his status grew in the drug trade, so too did his legendary brutality. Kidnappings, torture, and murder were three weapons in his arsenal that he used to keep a vice grip on the drug trade. In Buried Secrets, Edward Humes explores the intersections of the drug trade and politics in a way that still resonates today, touching upon the religious elements that play into the iconic status of drug kingpins. This unflinching, unforgettable story is brought to vivid, terrifying life in “one of the best true-crime tales in recent time” (Publishers Weekly). “Chilling . . . A masterful job.” —The Washington Post “Terrific . . . A highly readable, authoritative account of a particularly gruesome chapter in border history.” —The Dallas Morning News “A chilling story of murder and religious mania.” —Library Journal
