Listener Opinions

    " Not quite as good as Barry Eisler's but still a very good read! Good action scenes, but again, not as detailed as Eisler. Excellent character development. "

    " A good solid book, by the same guy who writes the Queen and Country comics i'm so fond of. i like the comics better, but this is quality too. Sort of like a chicken & vegetables meal -- hearty & filling, but not so exciting that you're looking forward to the next time it gets served. "

    " Read while traveling & I wished there was more when I finished it - will definitely be buying more in this series. It has been awhile since a book seriously surprised me & this did. "

    " Interesting concept. Kept me interested throughout. Kinda of sad at some of the outcome. "

    " Rucka's first work, Keeper begins the Atticus Kodiak series of novels. In this story, Atticus is protecting an abortion doctor named Felice Romero and her family from a right wing organization named the Sword of the Silent (SOS). A must read if you like Rucka or want to read Kodiak as Keeper lays the ground work for the entire series. "

    " I first read this five, six, maybe seven years ago. Most of the plot details had leaked away from my memory over the years, so I came to the book fresh enough to be able to enjoy the twists and turns of Rucka's story. Fortunate, because Keeper is pretty barebones as far as character goes. Which is not to say it's superficial and plot-centric, far from it. Rucka's sure, unflinching perspective on the psychological traumas visited upon women and men in violent professions is one of his main strengths as a writer. On the evidence of this debut, it was present from day one - keeping his roughly sketched protagonists from sliding into to-thin-to-sympathise-with status, delivering mesmerising mental aftershocks to keep things interesting between the amazing action set pieces. I've long held one such sequence in Rucka's Private Wars to be the most exhilarating thing I've ever read, but the central, stomach-punchingly tragic action scene in Keeper delivers at (almost) the same level. Which is to say: devastating, pulse-pounding, forcing you to ratchet up the reading speed to where you somehow don't register reading the words anymore, they just blur before your eyes, into movement, panic, blood. As mentioned, Rucka's deft hand with the aftereffects of violence and the very human reactions of his characters prevents this from coming across as a shallow procedural. Still, seeing this early version of his style makes it obvious how much better he got (quickly!) at depicting depth and nuance in his characters, without ditching the clipped, efficient prose of his debut. "

    " Great intro to a great series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rae H | 11/11/2013

    " This book was amazing. I was more familiar with Rucka's comic book work so when I found his novel work at the library, I was curious. To me, his style is engaging and personal, and the ending is not your traditional happy ending which, while sad, left me happily angry and wanting more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard | 11/10/2013

    " My first Rucka read and I was hooked. This is the best bodyguard series around. My second Rucka read was Smoker..and then I was addicted... "

    " rereading the series for what feels like the 902343th time, and finally documenting all books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 7/20/2012

    " Very fast paced and full of action. This series is riveting. I little strong on language but the story kept me wanting to read further despite that. The characters are strong and relate well with each other building a team which knows their job and will do nothing else until it is done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joey Cruz | 5/7/2012

    " The first of many home runs about the character Atticus Kodiak. One of the best characters and book series around. "

    " Hard, good. Bodyguard protects abortion doctor. Unpredictable enough. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bryon Smith | 1/24/2012

    " it was okay. i like rucka and i liked atticus so i read the rest of the series. i'm glad i stuck with it. i liked the series more and more as went goes on. book two was far better and by book three i was really digging it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C. Ryan | 12/22/2011

    " A decent read but very abrupt ending. Look forward to reading more in this series. But Atticus Kodiak? Come on! What a name. Makes me want to name one of my characters Wolf Sharkstooth and not second-guess myself. "
