Publisher's Summary

Ruddy McCann is back in Repo Madness - the laugh-out-loud, thrilling adventure from best-selling author W. Bruce Cameron!
Ruddy McCann, former college football star, now Kalkaska, Michigan, repo man, is finally getting his life back on track. He has a beautiful fiancée, Katie Lottner; a somewhat stable job stealing cars; and a lazy, lovable basset hound.
With his job suddenly in jeopardy, his fiancée wanting a break, and a new court-ordered psychiatrist insisting he take his medication or violate the terms of his probation, Ruddy finds himself missing the one thing he thought he would be happy to be rid of - the voice of Alan Lottner, dead realtor and Ruddy's future father-in-law. When a woman tells Ruddy that the tragedy that defines his life may in fact be a lie, Ruddy starts to investigate the disappearances of women in the area and soon discovers that his own redemption may be within reach.
Alan's voice returns, and Ruddy and Alan work together to bring down a corrupt banker, win back Katie's love, and stop a serial killer before he can strike again.

Sophomore Slump

Well, this happens sometimes when the first book of a series is a home run; the second disappoints. Repo Madness was like being stuck in the car with two bickering teenagers on a long road trip. The humorous relationship between Alan and Ruddy evaporated and that was half the fun of the first book. Instead, I wondered why the writer bothered to bring Alan back at all. Just so Ruddy would have someone to tell to shut up? Somewhere, the genre changed from paranormal cozy, which is noted for its humor, to psychological thriller and it didn't work. Disappointing.

I LOVED the first book...but not this one

What disappointed you about Repo Madness?

The narrator!


Has Repo Madness turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I would still give Ruddy and Alan another read if a 4th installment was released depending on who the narrated the new book.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of R. C. Bray?

Not a fan. It was read so different than the first two books. Bray read the charters in a way that made them very harsh, losing all of the comedy of the first two installments.


Any additional comments?

I don't know what went wrong. Maybe it was the fault of the narrator. I wish that he had listened for even a second of the The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man get some clue about how Alan was read in the first book. But maybe it was the author. This book reads like badly written fan fiction. Its as if someone wrote the first book and was awesome but then someone COMPLETELY different wrote this one, and in doing so, lost the whole essence of the two main characters. I just don't get it. The whole relationship between Alan and Ruddy is not just different in this book, its almost the complete opposite. I really loved The Midnight Plan and I very much enjoyed The Midnight Dog, its such a shame this one went of the rails.

I dare say that should W. Bruce Cameron write anymore in the story of Ruddy I will still have to give it a listen. Unless they record it with this R. C. Bray. Bring back George K. Wilson and I am all in. I really do like the story and I really do enjoy the characters. Well I enjoy the characters from the first two installments anyway.
