Review- The Body Keeper (Detective Jude Fontaine Mysteries #3)

The Body Keeper (Detective Jude Fontaine Mysteries #3)
By: Anne Fraiser
Release Date: June 4th, 2019
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Series: Detective Jude Fontaine Mysteries #3

The final part of this amazing trilogy is here and when I tell you that I could barely stop reading I mean that I took a day off work to finish it. I couldn’t resist the pull of this well-written, heart stopping finale.

When a boy’s frozen body is found in the ice of a Minneapolis lake Jude and Uriah join the hunt for the person responsible, only to discover more bodies in the same lake, some those of children missing for twenty years. Things keep getting weirder as a child is left in the middle of a blizzard on Jude’s doorstep and he doesn’t even know how he got there or his name. With two mysteries to solve time is passing by too fast and it may mean the end for many people.

Jude doesn’t disappoint in this novel, her wit, intelligence and determination are as strong as ever and I simply adore her. The same goes for Uriah who is definitely a favorite character of mine. As such I had a very hard time accepting that this was the final book in the trilogy and that we wouldn’t see Jude and Uriah anymore. Being attached to characters and the world they live in is hard but doing so in such a way that I was truly sad to finish this book is impressive given the shorter duration that is a trilogy.

Anne Fraiser continues to astound me with her writing skill, her ability to plot, hidden clues and surprising reveals. If you haven’t read any of the books in the trilogy I strongly suggest you go back to book number one, The Body Reader, and start there. With so much character growth, history and information you need all of it to appreciate what happens in this final installment.

About author

Brittney Soban

Brittney is a writer, reader and general lover of all things that end up printed on a page. With a few published poems and a lot of unpublished stories and novels she spends her days doing a nine to five job while wishing she was home working on the worlds she loves to create. As “punishment”, her and her brothers were banned from watching television for a week, leading to Brittney deciding that the free books at the library were better than TV and, in a very Matilda fashion, she took home loads of books every day and has never looked back. A reader of all types of literature, she will read practically anything put in front of her as long as something within it, no matter how small, sparks her interest. Give her high fantasy, science fiction, mystery, it doesn’t matter, but her love does lie within the fantasy and YA genres. A series junkie on top of everything else, she picks and chooses when to begin a series based on how many standalone books also await her attention in her to be read pile. Once she starts a series she will read every installment available back to back until she finishes a series or is forced to wait for the next publication. Called a book dragon by her boyfriend, the term is fitting as she owns more books than anything else and is quite sure her obituary will state she died under an avalanche of books. She truly wouldn’t have it any other way.
