Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Port City!
Private investigator Johnny Delarosa has seen it all. First as a cop, and now as a private eye. Cheating spouses, embezzlements, and insurance scams are routine. But he meets his match when the alluring, auburn-haired Claire Dixon walks into his bar/office and drops a $20,000 retainer in his lap. She wants the hard-drinking Johnny to find $2 million that was stolen from her mobster family 30 years earlier. But $2 million can be motivating. Old mobsters come out of witness protection to claim their share, and when bodies begin to pile up, and his sexy, enigmatic client disappears, Johnny is taken on the ride of his life; an Auburn Ride. With a wink and a nod to the hard-boiled private eyes of the pulp noir past, the gritty streets of Port City set the stage for author David Stever's first thriller in the Delarosa series.

I couldn't put it down, it brought so many emotions; fear, sadness, desires, love, hope, and devastation .... It is a little sick and twisted but again I couldn't stop kills me that I have to wait for the next book but can't wait!!!.

Loved This!

Against his better judgment, P.I. Johnny Delarosa takes on a beautiful auburn-haired woman as his client. Claire Dixon has hired him to find two million dollars that she feels is rightfully hers but is that her only agenda? Does the money even exist or is it simply an urban legend? Johnny will have a big payday if he can find it, assuming that he doesn't get killed first.

Wow, I just loved this! Johnny and his sidekicks are in for more than they bargained for when ex-mobsters get wind of the missing money. Action packed, sexy and humorous, this book was a modern take on the old detective stories. The great twist at the end was the finishing touch. Bill Lord as the narrator was perfect for this audiobook and gets two enthusiastic thumbs up. I really enjoyed Auburn Ride: A Johnny Delarosa Thriller and would recommend it.
