Mace Reid is a police consultant. He brings his trained dogs to sniff out the dead at crime scenes near Chicago. But one of his dogs, Vira, can also sniff out the murderer. In the first book of the series, The Finders, that worked out great. However, in The Keepers, the murderer is much more vicious than anything Reid has dealt with before. Even his friend, Chicago police officer Kippy, can’t deal with political corruption this deeply embedded in Chicago government. Reid and Vira feel like prey. Can they find their hunters before the hunters find them?
The Keepers is rousing and engaging cat-and-mouse tale. Plus, you will learn a lot about how dog’s noses work. Overall, it was an enjoyable mystery. 4 stars!
Thanks to Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
