Sometimes those who can’t be found just might not be lost…

Finders, Inc. co-founders Hank Johnson and Bim Mayer have spent the past two decades successfully solving mysteries and—almost miraculously, thanks to Bim's special skills—finding missing people in and around the remote mountain town of Boone, North Carolina.

Until now.

Their most recent case deals with an outbreak of missing elderly people, all of whom used to teach at nearby Appalachian State University. With the help of teammates Juan and Marly Hernandez, along with Shelby Jamiston, a sharp new private investigator Hank just hired, they soon learn that the absent old folks all have something else in common. They’re all connected to a shady character with deep, dark ties to both Bim and Hank.

The events of those chaotic three days in late winter will test the friendship of the two men as they—and all the other members of the “Finder Team”—risk their lives to solve this mystery and find a group of people who just might not want to be found.

The first book in an all-new mystery series with hints of the paranormal!
If that introduction doesn't get your attention then I don't know what will. This book promises some action, interesting characters and, of course, mystery solving and Jasper comes through on all counts. 

I really enjoy characters that are outside the norm. When you have a whole group of misfits it is even better. While Bim and Hanky J are quite the pair of oddballs themselves, I really enjoyed the supporting cast as well. The Finders Team was well balanced with complementing personality types who all specialize in their own skills,

The rural mountain area that this story takes place comes to life with the muddy roads and hole in the wall diners and bars. Even though I'm not familiar with that part of the country I didn't have a problem getting absorbed into the scenery.

While I enjoyed this read, it didn't really stick with me. There wasn't anything I particularly disliked about the story but I didn't love it either. I'd recommend this book for readers who enjoy the hints of paranormal and some fun filled characters.

FTC Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion.
