St. Nicholas Salvage & Wrecking

Dana Haynes

Book - 2019

Michael Patrick Finnigan was a New York City cop and a US Marshal who figured out that following the rules doesn't always get the job done. Katalin Fiero Dahar was a soldier, spy, and assassin for Spain, who figured out that breaking the rules doesn't always get the job done. Together, they created St. Nicholas Salvage & Wrecking, a largely illegal bounty hunting operation based in Cyprus and working throughout Europe. Operating under the radar for the presiding judge of the Intern...ational Criminal Court, they track down the worst of the world's worst. Someone is kidnapping Middle Eastern refugee children as they flee war-torn countries and selling them into prostitution around the world. Finnigan and Fiero get the assignment to track them down and save the refugees. But when they discover that the perpetrators are a Serbian mobster-with patronage at the highest levels of the United Nations-and a battalion of the Kosovo military, the partners reach out to their friends to find justice, including a corrupt banker, a cadre of mercenaries, and a crew of professional thieves. The battle to stop the mass kidnappings ranges from Belgrade and Zagreb, to the Loire Valley and Milan, and to the plains of Kosovo. As Finnigan and Fiero close in, the conspirators realize that the judge of the ICC is the real threat and plan an assassination. Now the partners have to save their patron and the kidnapped refugees from a rogue military force with nothing left to lose.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

This clever, fast-paced thriller from Haynes (Gun Metal Heart) introduces a decidedly odd crime-fighting couple—Michael Finnigan, a tough former U.S. marshal, and Katalin Fiero Dahar, a lethal ex-spy, who operate an illegal international bounty hunting enterprise based in Cyprus. They're in hot pursuit of a child trafficking ring working out of the former Serbian province of Kosovo and responsible for abducting Muslim refugee children and selling them to pedophiles and brothels throughout Europe. Against Fiero's bloodthirsty desire to annihilate the traffickers, Finnigan insists that they deliver justice, not vengeance. Together Finnigan and Fiero and their helpers try to foil a scheme whose tentacles reach into the highest levels of European governments. Haynes effectively interweaves the unusual working relationship between his cop and spook with copious descriptions of military hardware and ops details. Distinctive supporting characters include crooked police, well-connected baddies, and a spunky young reporter who infiltrates a refugee caravan. Readers will look forward to the further adventures of Finnigan and Fiero. Agent: Janet Reid, FinePrint Literary Management. (Mar.) Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly.
