Sometimes those who can't be found just might not be lost....
As the co-founders of Finders, Inc., Hank Johnson and Bim Mayer 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.
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)!

The Finder Team, Book One
Nice concept, well narrated
While I like the idea behind the whole series and it's fairly well written, the plotting was a little obvious and the pacing way too slow toward the end. Well before that time I'd guessed the ending and was waiting for the narration to catch up with what most listeners would find obvious. I'd give the second book in the series a shot to see if the author continues with pacing problems before recommending this to a friend.
"Finally!" As I said above, the pacing should have been much quicker in the last quarter of the book. That's not to say the narration should have been quicker, just that it was too drawn out writing-wise.
The narrator's voice was nice and deep, sure and steady...though I would have liked a bit more variety between characters.
I'd only want to hear a sequel if the author can tie up the mystery quicker in the end.
