Publisher's Summary

Jeffrey B. Burton's The Keepers is the next installment of the Mace Reid K-9 series, featuring golden retriever cadaver dog Vira and her handler, Mason Reid.

Mason “Mace” Reid lives on the outskirts of Chicago and specializes in human-remains detection - that is, he trains dogs to hunt for dead bodies. He calls his pack of cadaver dogs The Finders, and his prize pupil is a golden retriever named Vira.

When Mace Reid and Vira are called in to search Washington Park at three o'clock in the morning, what they find has them running for their very lives. The trail of murder and mayhem Mace and CPD Officer Kippy Gimm have been following leads them to uncover treachery and corruption at the highest level, and their discoveries do not bode well for them...nor for the Windy City itself.

The Keepers is an exciting, fast-paced mystery filled with courageous dogs you'll want to root for.

Bad language & too many characters

First let me say I love these books! The first one was much more enjoyable because the plot was more clear and the character development was better. This one had a sub-plot with tough gangster types using vulgar language (every other word beginning with F) and it made me cringe. It seriously detracted from my enjoyment of the book. Please take note Mr. Burton and omit from your next book!

Holy Cow!!!!!

A swirling conflagration of baddies. At one point I was sure that Kippy and Mace would be able to extricate themselves from the thick and ugly web they have been wrapped up in. Ah ye of little faith keep reading. The "girls" do not come out fully unscathed BUT still Mace's wonderful, faithful and steadfast protectors.

Really Enjoying This Series

As the headline says... I'm really enjoying this series. For me, the narration takes this up a notch or two. Story is really good. The narration is excellent & a great pairing.

Not quite as good as "Finders," but close.

First of all, Jeffery B. Burton is a master story teller. I was waiting for "Keepers" to be released and I wasn't the least bit disappointed. I'll be watching closely for the third in the Mace Reid series to be published, and am disappointed to know that it will be a year's wait. I may have been a little disappointed that it wasn't about a serial killer this time, and that we knew the murder(s) pretty early on. Perhaps that it really wasn't a mystery as much as a thriller. Please remember that 4 stars means "It's Great." because this book was great, just a little different than the first one. Love the dogs and the authors portrayal of the dogs., love the characters. Love the narrator. It's an all around win for me.

Pretty Good

The Keepers is a pretty good cozy mystery with engaging characters and an entertaining plot. The pace is a bit slow but it's worth it to stick to the end.
