Excellent new Teresa Burrell series....

Mason's missing is everything you would expect from a Teresa Burrell book. This book introduces Tuper. He's a PI who basically works for peanuts. He only wants to be paid what his clients can afford.
A child is kidnapped from his school and his mother hires Tuper. She tells him that she is divorced and suspects her ex husband. Tuper can find no marriage certificate, no birth certificate, nothing on this man with the name he uses. Then the ex is murdered. So he begins looking into the mother and ditto, nothing on her either. No birth certificate for the child (Mason). Who are these people ?
Tuper begins an investigation that is so convoluted. He hires a computer hack with secrets of her own, but with absolute dedication. She's also very chatty and adds levity as this tendency for incessant talking ( even to herself) drives him crazy. Tuper also hires JP periodically, he's from the Advocate series (which I recommend that entire series).
As the story continues no one is who they appear but connections between characters are made. This is a great mystery with a very surprising ending.
Narration by John Bell was very good.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

A new series from Teresa Burrell

I am a huge fan of the 8 novel The Advocate series by Teresa Burrell and I hope she will continue it. Mason's Missing is the first novel in her A Tuper Mystery series. The setting is rural Montana in the winter. Tuper is a private detective who picks the cases that interest him and is paid whatever the client can afford. He works with his hacker friend Lena. Five year old Mason is missing and his mother is frantic. There are frequent plot twists that change the perception of the case for Tuper and the listener.

One can never go wrong is selecting a Teresa Burrell novel. Mason's Missing is a suspense mystery while her The Advocate series are legal thrillers dealing mostly with abused children in the legal system. Burrell's most recent 4 books have been narrated by John Bell who does an outstanding job.

Terrific new detective series set in Montana

Would you listen to Mason's Missing again? Why?

Fun for me to read a mystery set in Montana with diversions in Southern California. A series about kidnapped kids interests me and finding this one was gold. Loved the legal details and the chase.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Loved the relationship between an old school rural man and a young urban hacker and how perfect it works in this case. Loved Jerome and JP. My favorite part was the aftermath of the storm and Tuper having to continue the search on horseback.

What does John Bell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

the narrator is fabulous with the voices. He sounds just like Sam Elliott for Tuper!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I savored it over several sessions. I love to listen to books while walking, and this book made me itch to walk more!

Any additional comments?

I recommend Mason’s Missing for anyone who enjoys fast paced mysteries with loads of details of Montana, a wonderful detective to follow in Tuper and a multi-layered story with diverse characters, the search process, and loads of action. I’ll definitely be buying the next Tuper book.
