The keys to the puzzle lie in the hands of Orient, the Finder, a young man wiht a gift for discovering lost objects. Backed up by a tough lady cop who's gotten further under his skin than he'd like to admit, Orient embarks on an odyssey through the darkest corners of the perilous urban labyrinth in order to save those he loves from destruction.
"Behind _Finder_'s crystal glitter of fairy dust and its hardboiled cop-show edge there are some very real people, with stories that mean something and lives that matter." -- Neil Gaiman, author of _Sandman_

This is a riveting book, and was the first (but not the last) Emma Bull book I'd read. Its urban magic setting is fascinating and realistic.

Very cool urban fantasy with a bit of mystery/detective flavor to it. I enjoyed it, but not as much as Emma Bull's novel, War for the Oaks - still, she does this genre very well, so much so that it seems perfectly natural for the Fae and humans to openly live side by side.
