With tainted meat the weapon and corporate greed the motive, THE KNOWLAND RETRIBUTION is an extremely topical suspense-revenge thriller. Walter Sherman, aka The Locator, is a tracker who honed his skills in Vietnam. The colorful cast of characters includes Sherman's two friends--a bartender with a mysterious past and an old black man who smokes likes a chimney; a feisty young woman who writes obituaries for the NY × a Southern lawyer who has lost everything and has only one things to live f∨ and a group of Wall Street investment bankers who make a deadly decision. The action takes the reader from a tiny Caribbean bar on the island of St. John to the editorial boardroom of the NT Times, from the gleaming skyline of Atlanta to the isolation of northern New Mexico, from Adirondack hideouts to Manhattan suits to Mississippi backwoods.

Excellent writing and plot development. Readers need to ignore any ties to the TV series which I also liked but they are two different birds only sharing concept. Ambivalent ending indeed not all Hollywood happy and perhaps like life-why do we so need happy endings?

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed "The Finder", but this engrossing well-written novel could've been the basis of a much better show if they hadn't tried to turn Walter's quirks into a comedy. This book was really incredible, but needs to be appreciated on it's own, not as "the basis of..." status.

Tedious. Did not finish.

I picked up this book after watching the pilot of the TV show (a special episode of Bones called "the Finder"). This is not at all like it. It reads more like a John Grisham novel. Once I got over the shock, I was pleasantly surprised. The story was engrossing, taught, and well-told. The book features complex storytelling through a variety of viewpoints, and didn't really sell the "Locator" subtitle.
I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to Kathy Reichs fans looking for something similar.

Very good character development. Sadly an ambivalent ending. Otherwise, a great read.
