Publisher's Summary

I was just waking up. I could hear 12 midnight being chimed in the distance. I was cold, wet, and coming down from the DTs. I looked up and could see the underneath of a wharf above me.
And that was just the beginning.
Jonas Watcher had no memory of how he got there. As he started climbing up the ladder to the wharf, he found he was tangled in some sort of net. Suddenly a large heavy object dropped onto him and he fell into the bay still snared by the net, which had also captured the object. Luckily, the weight of the object had tightened the net, so he was able to pull himself out of the water and climb up to the wharf.
After resting on the wharf, he examined the object and saw that it was a bag with latches. When he opened it, he found some things that propelled him into the middle of a mystery involving, well, you'll have to listen to the book to find out what.
It is San Francisco during the 1930s, and Jonas Watcher must solve The Case of the Running Bag if he wants to stay alive.

Oh, those fickle sisters, Fate.

While Mystery isn't my normal genre to read, I enjoyed The Case of the Running Bag. It was easy to imagine the scenes, and the narrator did a great job of giving each character a distinct voice. Mr. Poschman weaved the story seamlessly, and told it with tongue-in-cheek humor through the eyes of Jonas Watcher, a drunk that is thrown into a role that fits more with his past than anyone suspected. Oh, those fickle sisters, Fate. You never know what twist they'll throw at you next.

Humorous Noir Detective series

I enjoyed this book so much I listened to it twice. The Case of the Running Bag is a fast-paced, humorous noir yarn starring the affable Jonas Watcher. The plots twists and turns in unexpected ways and Jonas rolls with the punches with good humor. The narrator did an excellent job. I enjoyed his performance. He brought Jonas to life and kept me on the edge of my seat at times. I especially loved the interactions between Jonas and his witty secretary. What a fun story. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen! You won't regret it!
