I have never read Anne Frasier before, and after reading this, in what appears to be the final part of her Detective Jude Fontaine trilogy, set in Minneapolis, Minnesota, I can understand why the

final part of her Detective Jude Fontaine trilogy, set in Minneapolis, Minnesota, I can understand why the author has such a huge and loyal group of readers The writing is so good, and so atmospheric, her rich descriptions of the endless snow, bitterly icy winds, and frozen winters experienced the residents made me feel as if I was right there, in the deadly wintery conditions Jude is a woman with a heartbreaking history of being abducted and tortured, cursed with a father that was nothing short of the worst of horror nightmares, it is unsurprising that she finds it hard to trust and shies away from any human contact Her strongest relationship is with her cop partner, Detective Uriah Ashby, the two have a relationship that displays their deep understanding of each other, with their ability to communicate with each other that so often needs no words Jude is gifted with the quality of being an empath, she can tune into the heart of what is going on within a person, and often the dead too.The frozen body of a child is found beneath the ice of a Minnesota lake, and so the most disturbing of investigations opens for Jude and Uriah that take in events from over 20 years ago as it turns out there arebodies of young boys, all with similar features of being blond and blue eyed An older woman abandons a vulnerable 4 year old boy in desperately freezing conditions on Jude s doorstep The boy appears to have no name other than boy, is filthy, obviously neglected, with marks on his body that hint at terrible abuse, and clearly has no experience of socialising with others at all Despite all this, he is a cute and remarkably sweet child that pulls on Jude s heart strings Weather conditions prohibit any quick intervention by Child Protection Services, forcing Jude to connect with the child, and Elliot in her apartment building helps to look after him In a story of the misery and darkness of child human trafficking, Jude finds Uriah has been keeping secrets from her, and there are connections from the dark deeds of the past and the entry of the young boy in her life, which puts her and him in danger as she tries to ensure his safety.This introduction to this series can be read reasonably well as a standalone as Frasier provides enough information of previous events and characters Frasier s complex characterisation of Jude, burdened with a past that would be sufficient to break anyone, is done with remarkable skill, and this extends to other people that inhabit this brilliant piece of disturbing and unsettling crime fiction, such as Uriah and Elliot I loved reading this so much for so many reasons, such as the atmospheric setting and challenging weather conditions, and for Jude and the others who felt so real to me throughout The award winning Frasier has certainly made an indelible impression on me with this book, and in the overcrowded crime fiction genre, that is saying something Many thanks to Thomas and Mercer for an ARC Gripping

The Body KeeperDetective Jude Fontaine Mysteries, Book 3By Anne FrasierNarrated by Emily Sutton SmithThis was pretty good except it was about child traffic ring A rough subject The author is great about setting the scene and making the reader listener feel like you are there Lots of suspense, and great world building Terrific narration.

first hand growth, acceptance and trust as Detective Jude Fontaine is put to the test I was completely pulled into the story as Jude fought to find justice for these lost souls and devoured this in a single evening.There are triggers so be warned It was hard knowing what these children experienced emotionally, physically and sexually The story isn t graphic, and we aren t present when stronger elements of abuse occur but it broke my heart nonetheless and Fraiser painted a clear enough picture Child Trafficking is a relevant issues and Fraiser tackled it well.I am hoping we seecases with

series While the crimes themselves and the resulting plots were highly imaginative and required the reader to suspend reality a bit, the character development and their interactions with each other did not In fact, they were completely realistic, as the author took her time in revealing them and their growth over the series and contrasted nicely with the fast pace and gruesome nature of the crimes.Both Jude and Uriah have suffered tragedies Jude, especially, has physically survived the unimaginable Her mental survival is a bitquestionable and reading about her struggle to cope and find peace in her new reality was fascinating to read The Body Keeper brings them both out the other side and while each is irrevocably changed, we are also given hope for their happiness and some sense of normalcy for them both.Closing this book was like saying goodbye to beloved friends, so bitter sweet I m ecstatic that I stumbled upon this series and met these characters but knowing this is the last of their story, makes me a bit sad {Download} ê The Body Keeper á The Thriller Award winning series continues as Detective Jude Fontaine finds a decades old connection to missing children that will
