The Lost by Jeffrey B. Burton

Nothing is as it appears to be... and the red herrings could be lethal.

The Lost is the next mystery from author Jeffrey B. Burton starring an extraordinary cadaver dog and her handler.

Glencoe, Illinois: A home invasion turned kidnapping at the mansion of billionaire financier Kenneth J. Druckman brings Mason “Mace” Reid and his cadaver dog, Vira, to this wealthy northern suburb of Chicago. Druckman was assaulted, left behind while his wife and young daughter were taken for ransom.

Brought to the scene by the FBI, Reid specializes in human remains detection, and Vira is the star of his pack of cadaver dogs he’s dubbed The Finders. After Vira finds the dead body of the mother, former supermodel Calley Kurtz, everyone is on high alert to find Druckman’s missing daughter before the five-year-old disappears forever. But the trail Vira finds on the property’s dense woodlands leads right back to Druckman himself.

With the help of Detective Kippy Gimm, Reid and Vira must race against the clock. Nothing is as it appears to be... and the red herrings could be lethal.

Avid Reader☆☆☆☆
M/F Mystery

Mason Reid, a.k.a. Mace, trains dogs for police purposes outside of Chicago. He is normally called in when someone needs a body found, as that's what his dogs are known for. When Kenneth J. Druckman is assaulted and his wife, former supermodel Calley Kurtz, and his daughter, Eleanor, are abducted, Mace and his trusty dog Vira are on the case.

You weave through the twisted woods of the Druckman estate, as well as the twisted mind of a cold blooded killer.

Twists and turns lead you through the police procedure of searching for Druckman's wife and daughter.

This book has you jump between characters – their thoughts, actions, and motivations. It's a fun way to read the mystery as you are just given snippets here and there.

Burton does a great job at winding through the minds of the characters and piecing together the mystery. While the mystery is not complex to figure out, Burton does a great job at keeping the reader wanting to turn the page and find the motivation behind everyone's actions.
