Publisher's Summary

Robbery, arson, murder, and the one night stand that just won't end.
With 11 missing women to find and six high-profile burglary cases to solve, the last thing Detective Nathan McNamara needs in his life is one more complication. And that's exactly what his recent one-night stand is becoming - complicated. With his heinous lieutenant breathing down his neck for answers and his accidental girlfriend dropping hints for a commitment, Nathan is realizing that his career and his bachelor status are both on the line.
When the burglary cases suddenly escalate to homicide, Nathan must put everything else aside to stop the killer. But this is easier said than done when the blonde from the bar repeatedly shows up at his doorstep and enlists his own mother against him. Now he's more convinced than ever that his job hangs in the balance and that the Surgeon General's warning on the whiskey bottle should include something about women.

This Prequel will have you rushing out for more.

Where does The Detective rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Because it's a novella, it's a quick listen, so it's easy to listen to more than once.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Even though Nathan's mom had a small role, the scene with her voice mails was my favorite. It made me laugh out loud because I'm sure I sound like that on my son's phone.

What does Carson Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Not really a fair question since I didn't read the book, but I loved the vulnerability he brought to the character of Nathan. He's not sure of his feelings, but morally he understands what's right. Nathan wasn't cocky, but more the kind of man I'd like to know.

Any additional comments?

A great way to understand the motivations of Nathan in The Soul Summoner. Please hurry and put the rest of this series on Audible.
