Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a heartbeat, a crowded auditorium or a city street can become a kill zone, where life and death are separated by a split second. For Atticus Kodiak, professional bodyguard, the object is to keep people alive, and there is no margin for error. Now Kodiak faces his toughest challenge: to protect a woman and her daughter from a killer with a fanatical agenda of his own...

Tense, taut, and as brutally real as this morning's headlines, Keeper marks the debut of a talented young writer of tough, unflinching prose — and the beginning of an electrifying new series.

Review:

"Rucka's prose is clean and visual, his characterizations and dialogue are economical and his storytelling scoots along at a fast clip." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"An impressive debut....Keeper is one to hang on to." People

Review:

"Rucka's novel is hardly great literature, but it is an engrossing read..." Booklist

Review:

"Crisper, tighter and tougher....A keeper as a novel!" San Francisco Chronicle

Review:

"Riveting....Keeper is full of surprises." Houston Chronicle

Review:

"There's too much feeling here for a purely commercial effort, and too many concessions to suspense for a thoughtful statement about abortion. Powerful, but uneven." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"First novelist Rucka delivers a story as timely as today's headlines....This is a tense and exciting novel filled with some odd characters." Library Journal

Review:

"Keeper pulls at the heart-strings and brings tears to the eyes....A remarkable first novel." The Orlando Sentinel

Review:

"Keeper is no ordinary thriller....Remarkable." The Denver Post
