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.

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.
