that follows a supernatural thread in a logical progression, and the plot in this book which is so off the charts wacky that for me it detracted from the whole. This is the only book I have read by Gary Braunbeck; I hope that in his other books he uses the same skill in describing his characters but reins in his imagination a bit.
There are lots of twists and turns in this book which kept it exciting,
Gary Braunbeck is a very talented writer.
You really got to know the characters and their life,
was so easy to get stuck into their world.
This book is deffently a must read,
You will not be disappointed
I am looking forward to read more of Gary Braunbecks books.

'Keepers' is so much more than the blurb on the back cover, it has a haunting 'coming of age' tale so poignantly detailed that I forgot I was reading a horror book. But nothing makes charm more vivid than the red-rimmed eyes of an unseen menace creeping up behind you.
Gil Stewart is an ordinary man, running his own business of 'novelties and collectibles' stores, and caring for his institutionalized Down's Syndrome nephew, Carson, one week a month. Until one day his normal life is shattered, first by witnessing a bizarre death on the highway, then by a mangy dog crawling under his house to die, and lastly a phone call from the institution telling him Carson is missing.
It's time to Gil to remember his past, to piece together the fragments of his memories in order to discover the secret of the Keepers, and why the Magritte-Man killed on the highway warned him of them. Gil must remember his parents, and the unbreakable bond he formed with Beth, his girl of the past, long missing and presumed dead. He must remember his kindnesses, to animals and elderly and all those who are invisible to the rest of the world. Before the Keepers come.
Anyone who has read Braunbeck will not be surprised by the talent in his writing, but if this is your first Braunbeck book, then get ready for an emotional roller coaster that will leave you gasping for air and unable to put the book down until you are finished. I can't recommend this book highly enough, definitely a 10-Star keeper. Enjoy!
