Jimmy Veeder and Bobby Maves are back at it, two years after the events of Dove Season - they’re not exactly the luckiest guys in the Imperial Valley, but, hey, they win more fights than they lose.
Settled on his own farmland and living like a true family man after years of irresponsible fun, Jimmy’s got a straight life cut out for him. But he’s knocking years off that life thanks to fun-yet-dangerous Bobby’s booze-addled antics - especially now that Bobby is single, volatile as ever, and bored as hell.
When Bobby’s teenage daughter goes missing, he and Jimmy take off on a misadventure that starts out as merely unfortunate and escalates to downright calamitous. Bobby won’t hesitate to kick a hornets’ nest to get the girl to safety, but when the rescue mission goes riotously sideways, the duo’s grit - and loyalty to each other - is put to the test.

Loved it, despite not being my usual genre
Yes! The narration is excellent!
Jimmy puts his own sheets on the hotel bed. Bobby goes on a tirade about germs being innocuous, and claiming he needs e-coli in his food, for flavor.
Scott Merriman truly brings these characters to life. In fact, I listened to "Dove Season," which was narrated by a different person, and (meaning no disrespect to the other narrator) it just wasn't the same. Merriman owns Bobby's voice, especially.
Bobby! But it have to be a bar and grill. Anything fancier than that, and he'll get kicked out for lewd behavior before he's seated.
This isn't my typical genre, but it was available through Kindle Unlimited, so I gave it a try. To be sure, it's a relatively vulgar book, but it's always situation appropriate, and often it seemed to mock vulgarity, via vulgarity. Also, I'd love to hear "Dove Season" narrated by Merriman.
