The Finders by Jeffrey B. Burton


Jeffrey B. Burton's The Finders marks the beginning of a fast-paced new mystery series featuring a heroic golden retriever cadaver dog named Vira and her handler, Mason Reid.

Mason "Mace" Reid lives on the outskirts of Chicago and specializes in human remains detection. He trains dogs to hunt for the dead. Reid’s coming off a taxing year—mourning the death of a beloved springer spaniel as well as the dissolution of his marriage. He adopts a rescue dog with a mysterious past—a golden retriever named Vira. And when Reid begins training Vira as a cadaver dog, he comes to realize just how special the newest addition to his family truly is…

Suddenly, Reid and his prize pupil find themselves hurled into a taxing murder case, which will push them to their very limits. Paired with determined Chicago Police Officer Kippy Gimm, Mace must put all his trust in Vira's abilities to thwart a serial killer who has now set his sights on Mace himself.

Avid Reader☆☆☆☆
M/F Mystery Murder Thriller

Kippy Gimm is a very good police officer. She knows how to do her job well and when she finds a puppy that should have perished, she knows that this dog is special.

Mason, aka Mace, is a great dog trainer. He has cadaver dogs and drug sniffing dogs, does obedience classes, and is just a good guy. When he meets Vira for the first time, he knows that she is going to be an amazing dog. While he had a slow run in his love life for a while, when he meets Kippy, his ability to flirt is on display and it made me laugh. He was so awkward.

There is a serial killer around Chicago, and it'll be up to Mace, Vira, and Kippy to figure out who it is. This is a fast-paced story where you are seeing it from different perspectives. I really liked that you read from different views. It helped to build suspense. I am very happy that this was as fast paced as it was, because the actual characters were somewhat flat for me. I found Officer Gimm's first name very distracting and the first time I read it, it made me laugh and go back to make sure I was reading her name correctly. Overall, this was entertaining and a quick read. I can't wait to see what Vira does next!
