The creativity of the author was nice and fun. I liked the twist of how the story turns out. And Jack Daniels is a fun character. I personally was not a fan of the narration. I think it took away for the story. The voice is very monotone and even tough its a short I found it hard to stay focused. Of course we all have different taste in what we like so listen to the sample and judge for yourself.
I am really enjoying the writing style of John Holt. This is another wonderful short mystery! It was a little hard to get used to Joe Voegler' narration, but once I did it was OK.
I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!

This is one of those audiobooks where the melding of narrator and text is so seamless that it feels like the actual character is sitting across a bar table telling the listener his story. So well written, Jack Daniels, private detective, is alive, a bit careworn perhaps, but solid and real. He mostly investigates possible infidelities, 'spying' to garner evidence for a client's divorce. But he's also a bit of a reluctant good Samaritan, with a penchant for a pretty face. So when he sees a young woman in distress, he steps in to help.
Told as a somewhat self depreciating monologue, which at times slightly rambles off into other directions only to be pulled back again to the main story, all expertly performed by a soft spoken, world weary Joe Voegler, this short (under two hours) book nevertheless captures everything, time, place and, of course, Jack Daniels himself. No great peaks of excitement but instead emerges a simple tale of murder and deception which holds the listener throughout.
I had requested this book and was very.fortunate in being freely gifted a complementary copy by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you so much. It is a little gem and recommended to anyone who enjoys good detective Noire stories, with full characterisation at the forefront, complimented by a superb narration.
