Keeperby Greg Rucka
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"Rucka's prose is clean and visual, his characterizations and dialogue are economical and his storytelling scoots along at a fast clip." Publishers Weekly
"An impressive debut....Keeper is one to hang on to." People
"Rucka's novel is hardly great literature, but it is an engrossing read..." Booklist
"Crisper, tighter and tougher....A keeper as a novel!" San Francisco Chronicle
"Riveting....Keeper is full of surprises." Houston Chronicle
"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
"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
"Keeper pulls at the heart-strings and brings tears to the eyes....A remarkable first novel." The Orlando Sentinel
"Keeper is no ordinary thriller....Remarkable." The Denver Post
