Publisher's Summary

The name's Daniels, Jack Daniels - just like the whiskey you know. I'm a private detective. And I can't help butting my nose into other people's business. It's what I do. You get used to it. It becomes a way of life almost. After a while it comes natural to you, automatic, like breathing, or eating, although not quite as enjoyable. It's a habit that I just can't break. I just can't help it.
But sometimes it can lead you into trouble....

Good short story but bad narration

This was my first John Holt's book. This was a good story. The Private Detective, Jack Daniels, has a good sense of humor and his investigation was interesting. This was a short and fast pace story. Unfortunately, the narration wasn't easy to listen and the narrator's voice was much older than the Jack Daniels's 38 year old. Fortunately, I always read/listen and this was very helpful this time. In fact, I think it was better to only read this story. Hopefully, the narrator for the books 2 and 3 isn't the same. I'll definitely read and listen the next books in the Series. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Narration Hurts

The narration on this book was very difficult for me to listen to and took away so much from the book. I would have preferred reading this book compared to listening to it with Joe Voegler. The premise of Jack Daniels (name like the whiskey) finding a woman collapsed and covered in blood and not seeking police help seemed off. Yes he has lots of questions and is inquisitive being a PI, but who takes a stranger into their home under those circumstances. His questions are not fully answered, and yet the story has some great twists. I would listen to more books by this author, but unfortunately stay away from the narrator.

An enjoyable way to spend an evening

I downloaded this book on the recommendation of a dear friend a fiction crime writer.
Jack Daniels is a great character with a sense of fair play, an attitude that the fairer sex are to be protected, and an honest approach to life.
I did struggle sometimes with the heavy accent of Joe Vorgler who narrates this book, he has an almost wheezy voice and lisp.

Didn't your mother ever warn 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.
