This was a short, fast pace and funny story. Jack Daniels stroke again with this new investigation. This was the third novella in the Jack Daniels P.I. Series. I like the author's black humour. The narration was great.
Fun, quick listen. I liked the Film Noir style set in the present day. The narrator had a perfect dry, deadpan style for the private detective telling the story.
Having recently listened to the audiobook of The Candy Man, John Holt's first Jack Daniels ( "like the whiskey") novella, this reader was hungry for more. This is book three - there does not appear to be a book 2. Like the first in the series, this is the slightly rambling recollection, told in first person conversation mode, of Daniels himself, talking about a recent case when he was hired, by a beautiful woman, of course, to get the dirty on her very wealthy, shipping magnate husband to use as evidence in a lucrative divorce. Except, as it turns out, he wasn't.
Short, but very densely packed with character and atmosphere, the narrator has an even more important role to play than in many books, this reader was initially disappointed that a different voice would this time become Jack Daniels as Joe Voegler in book one had been superb. But Peter Borys did it well, very well. The perfect voice for a noire P.I., his smooth talking voice hit just the right pace and intonation.
This book is one for anyone looking for a well written and performed, quick but satisfying story and for all who enjoy the shady world of the P.I. Recommended.
