The Finder by Colin Harrison

The Finder finds Ray Grant, a New York firefighter injured on 9/11, coming back home to take of his dying father. His ex-lover is Jin Li, a pretty young Chinese woman who runs an office-cleaning business. In fact, she uses that as a cover to steal financial documents from companies and sends them to her brother's criminal business back in Shanghai who make a fortune off this inside information. This information sends the stock price of a company called Good Pharma into a tailspin. The investors of the company, who are suddenly losing a lot of money instead of making a huge profit, are willing to go at any length to find Jin Li. Her only hope to be rescued falls to Ray Grant. Colin Harrison's novel has received positive reviews with the New York Times saying, "A lot of the developments in The Finder are completely preposterous, if you stop to think about them. But Harrison keeps his foot so firmly on the gas that he rarely gives the reader a chance to notice such problems. In doing so he succeeds in giving us a chilling, high-speed roller coaster of a ride that doubles as a sardonic sightseeing tour of the seamier side of New York City."
