"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"-- Provided by publisher.

To the cops on the scene, what happened was clear. Home invaders occupied the country home of a big-deal financier. They beat him up, kidnapped the man's wife and young daughter, and hauled away all the valuables they could carry. The police figure their job is to wait for a ransom demand. Enter Vira, a retriever who sizes up the scene and sets the cops on the trail of the real villains. Vira (pronounced VYE-ra) is a cadaver dog, the jewel in the gang of four-legged corpse-finders schooled in their trade by Chicago trainer Mace Reed. This is the duo's third appearance, after a couple of exceptional thrillers (The Finders, 2020, and The Keepers, 2021) in which Burton appears to be having such a good time that the reader can't resist the invitation to join him. As Vira knows, there's more to the story of this home invasion than there appears to be, and Burton displays a too-rare knack for keeping the heat on while moving a complex story to its finale, all the while injecting welcome jolts of humor.
