Quirky, funny worthwile suspense novel

Bateman has a talent for writing and describing odd, fun characters in his stories. The situations are comical even though there is danger lurking in the shadows, and Bateman pulls off the story and makes it work. I like his stories and have enjoyed the two books in this series. The main character is an odd duck an one wonders what Colin Bateman must be like in real life to be able to describe him so well - but the stories are fun and the dialog moves along and is well written. This book is a good time and worth a read.

I smiled and laughed a lot

I found this the funniest book I have listened to in a long time and also the one I have enjoyed the most. The plot was improbable as was the main character. The narrator was very good. A dog in the plot always improves a book. I would strongly recommend this book.

Mystery Man's Back

First off, this was a great title, and secondly we finally meet the dreaded mother. It's no wonder he's the shell of a man he is, the mother is AWFUL (in a great, Thank God she's not my maw way!).

A new assignment involving You Tube, kidnapping and a stuffed Jack Russell interferes with love and parenthood. A good listen.
