A missing girl. A ruthless killer. A rookie P.I.
Jake Abraham is a child of the 80s, brought up by Jim Rockford, Thomas Magnum and three beautiful girls who worked for a man named Charlie. He's loving his new job as a Private Investigator and already has his first client - a disgraced former police captain whose daughter has disappeared.
When the girl shows up dead, Jake is drawn into a dangerous world of organised crime, police corruption, infidelity and serial murder.
With a terrified city in the grip of a killer who's always one step ahead of the police, how can a raw young P.I. hope to make a difference?
The Shoulders of Giants is a fun, fast paced thriller in the mold of Raymond Chandler and Robert B. Parker.

This could be the start of a really good series
Yes. It's a quick read/listen. Good fast pace and can easily be listened to in a day.
I would probably compare this tithe Jude Hardin "Nicholas Colt" books. The main character in this is not quite so wreckless but still daring.
I thought Michael David Axtell did a good job with the whole book. No complaints.
I probably would have made this book a little longer and fleshed out the main character (Jake Abramson) a little more, provided more background etc. I think there was enough of a story here to do that. But... I do think this was a good book. Certainly contained enough mystery and suspense as well as a few antagonists making the reader guess right up to the final chapters "who done it".
I am hoping this writer will continue with this character, I think it could turn into a really good PI series.
