Mason's missing is everything you would expect from a Teresa Burrell book. This book introduces Tuper. He's a PI who basically works for peanuts. He only wants to be paid what his clients can afford.
A child is kidnapped from his school and his mother hires Tuper. She tells him that she is divorced and suspects her ex husband. Tuper can find no marriage certificate, no birth certificate, nothing on this man with the name he uses. Then the ex is murdered. So he begins looking into the mother and ditto, nothing on her either. No birth certificate for the child (Mason). Who are these people ?
Tuper begins an investigation that is so convoluted. He hires a computer hack with secrets of her own, but with absolute dedication. She's also very chatty and adds levity as this tendency for incessant talking ( even to herself) drives him crazy. Tuper also hires JP periodically, he's from the Advocate series (which I recommend that entire series).
As the story continues no one is who they appear but connections between characters are made. This is a great mystery with a very surprising ending.
Narration by John Bell was very good.

I am a huge fan of the 8 novel The Advocate series by Teresa Burrell and I hope she will continue it. Mason's Missing is the first novel in her A Tuper Mystery series. The setting is rural Montana in the winter. Tuper is a private detective who picks the cases that interest him and is paid whatever the client can afford. He works with his hacker friend Lena. Five year old Mason is missing and his mother is frantic. There are frequent plot twists that change the perception of the case for Tuper and the listener.
One can never go wrong is selecting a Teresa Burrell novel. Mason's Missing is a suspense mystery while her The Advocate series are legal thrillers dealing mostly with abused children in the legal system. Burrell's most recent 4 books have been narrated by John Bell who does an outstanding job.
