Publisher's Summary

Hauling cow carcasses through a freezing warehouse isn't Kevin Davenport's idea of summer fun. But it's not his first crappy job. And with tuition due and his widowed mom strapped for cash, he's in no position to turn down good pay. But there's more than meatpacking happening at Kosher World Meat Factory. And the truth isn't quite so – well - kosher. Turns out the business is a front for a criminal syndicate. While working at the corrupt meat factory, Kevin discovers who killed his father, and now all bets are off. Kevin finally has the chance to settle the score, and he'll tackle any job - club fighting, bookmaking, even drug dealing - to earn his revenge. But can he do it without becoming the very thing he's trying to destroy? Or, God forbid, flunking out of school? The Sopranos meets Animal House in this darkly comic coming-of-age novel about the price of vengeance - and the burden of truth.

Nonstop entertainment!

This book just seemed to fly by. I started listening and there was not a single dull moment. There is one scene in the beginning that was a little silly and you might want to quit right there , don't!
The publisher's summary gives a pretty bare bones outline to this book.
When Kevin Davenport was a 10 year old boy, he saw a car plow into his district attorney father and younger sister, the car kept going. Both died.
As he gets older he get a scholarship to a private school. He makes wealthy friends. One in particular helps him out later on with jobs so he can pay his way through college. While working at a kosher meat packing company he discovers the one man he was especially close, whose son is his best friend, is part of the mob. He's also the man responsible for his father's murder, it was not a hit and run after all.
Kevin decides to avenge his father and sister's murder and comes up with a complex but very entertaining plot.
The sarcasm overflows.
Some schemes may seem implausible but they are certainly entertaining.
If you have kindle unlimited this book is FREE!
Will Damron does an excellent job narrating.

You do not need to believe it to enjoy it!

The plot of Odd Jobs is wildly incredible and entertaining as it chronicles the life in the first person of Kevin Davenport for approximately 15 years from age 10 when his prosecutor dad and younger sister are murdered by a mob boss and his mom fall into deep depression. The novel is very fast moving and features characters that are so vivid they jump off the page. It's a story of vengeance and retribution while also being light and fun. Will Damron narrates.
