The Keepers by Jeffrey B. Burton

As they uncover treachery and corruption at the highest level, their discoveries do not bode well for them... nor for the Windy City itself.

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.

Mace has an amazing pack of dogs that can do a number of jobs for the community, the police, and they are just great to have along with him. When they are called to a police scene, while they aren't super popular with the department, not everyone is so biased against them either. You get to see strange things start to unravel...

Kippy Grimm is a diligent, honest, and hardworking officer. She wants justice, no matter who is involved. When she and Mace find themselves with a mystery on their hands, Kippy knows that she'll have to ensure everyone survives.

Their city is under attack and when those around them can't be trusted, Mace and Kippy, along with the dogs, know they can only survive if they trust each other. You'll be cheering them on, frustrated with the bad guys, and fall more and more in love with Mace's pack of furry friends.

I really enjoyed this mystery. It was somewhat predictable, but I didn't think it was annoyingly so. I can't wait for more from this group.
