Publisher's Summary

Hobbs is a professional thief who takes on a heist even though the money doesn't match the risk...but the woman behind the job does. It's a bad play that blows his world apart.
This novella is a prequel to The Soak, a searing crime novel that introduces an exhilarating new voice in noir fiction that's as sharp, cruel, and relentless as the story's unforgettable hero.

Short and to the point

This was a fairly quick listen, and for those new to the lead character (like me), it didn't take long to suss out his nature and the situation he was in.

This reads more like an old noir story, with the dame falling for the bad guy instead of the private eye.

There isn't much else to say without spoiling things, but I enjoyed the main character, the female interest and even a couple of the bit players. Not knowing the world this story is written in, I can't get too much of a grasp on some of the others, but I'd be interested in hearing more.

I was provided this story, for free, in exchange for my unbiased review

A Good Introduction To The Soak

The Lucky Dime was a good noir prequil to The Soak. It was very well done but I want to hear more. This story I think is giving the listener a little back story about Hobbs. It was almost like an introduction. I'm curious as to where the author Patrick E. McLean goes with the novel.

I liked that he narrated his own book. He did an excellent job. He has a nice voice with good voice inflections. I can see why he read his own book. Hopefully The Soak will be available soon.
