Publisher's Summary

According to the police report, the attractive, blue-eyed blonde had been shot to death in her apartment at around 7:30 p.m.
Then how was it possible that nearly 50 people saw her dining and dancing at a nearby club over three hours later?
Set in the late 1980s, the third Brett Cornell novel finds the studly private detective surrounded by the usual bevy of beautiful women, as well as a few seedy characters who foolishly decide to butt heads with the supreme unscrupulous bastard himself.
But Brett's road to victory isn't easy, especially when he receives a frantic call for help, which leads to his being severely beaten right outside his office building and, later, being held and threatened at gunpoint.
Soon, bullets start flying, fists start flying - and even a sledgehammer is used - in one of the most violent cases of his career, before Brett finally wins!

Funniest Brett Cornell Mystery Yet!

I've listened to the whole Brett Cornell series and this is definitely my favorite one so far! Travis Henry Carter is back with amazing narration and Daniel D'Aguanno truly write a hilarious and great story! I just love Bretts mannerisms and how he only thinks of himself all the time. Great addition to the series and I can't wait to read another one!

I was given this Audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.

Main character!

Brett was a bit of a... prick? Haha, I enjoyed the plot of the story, and it flowed very well. The narrator was excellent, really brought the characters alive, I couldn’t see anyone else playing Brett other than him! I read these out of order, currently going through the first one now! Can’t wait to see if I missed anything in the first book and what the future brings for Brett.


I revived a free copy of this book for an honest review.

The Garden of Egypt.

Work is slow for Birchwood P.I. Brett Cornell. Could be because of the reputation of blue eyed, blonde moustachioed self styled Adonis' reputation as an unscrupulous bastard, a reputation he was proud to embrace. So when a call comes through to his office from a woman introducing herself as Paula Marshall, as if he should know the name, asking for help and saying that they were trying to kill her before the line went dead, he decides it really was not his problem. Until, that is, two wanna-be heavies stop him on the street and beat him up - a message, they tell him, from Mr.Walter Marshall. No one does that to Brett Cornell. Time to track down this Marshall person, presumably the husband of his telephone caller.

Brett is 36, rude, lewd and uncouth and totally full of himself, self congratulatory and constantly misquoting pieces of home philosophy.. He is the epitome of the perfect non-pc man. But still he seems to charm the ladies into his enthusiastic arms and bed. He even has a (sometimes) live-in girlfriend, Ginger, to whom he is totally faithful, well, apart from three or four (or is that 34? - he's a private eye, not a mathematician) times over the past month or so. He's not someone the reader would ever want to meet in life - but in a book? He's a hoot!

Brett Always Wins is the third book following his antics, each stand alone, an, for this reader, the best so far. Written in the first person, Brett is brilliantly portrayed by narrator Travis Henry Carter, who captures all the nuances of his jubilant, comic character with accent, intonation, pacing and expression. Additionally, every other protagonist is given their own appropriate and distinctive voicings, both male and female. An excellent performance throughout which enhances for the listener the fun and humour of this outrageous neanderthal of a man.

My warmest thanks to the rights holder from whom I received a freely gifted complimentary copy of this book, at my request, via F.A.F.Y. Certainly not a book I would recommend to anyone easily shocked. But for pig headed exuberance, self satisfied humour and racy, out of order comments, plus very colourful characters all wrapped up in a nice, simple little mystery, this book should not be missed. But if you do, to quote Brett himself, "It's not my problem.
