This short story introduces former college football star turned repo man Ruddy McCann, star of W. Bruce Cameron’s new novel The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man, and tells how Ruddy met his best friend Jake, a lazy but lovable basset hound, during a repo gone wrong. Full of laugh-out-loud humor and thrilling adventure, "The Midnight Dog of the Repo Man" is a page-turning, delightful short story by the author of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling A Dog’s Purpose, A Dog’s Journey, and The Dogs of Christmas that shows us that unconditional love is just a tail wag away and can happen upon us when we least expect it.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
This one hour story of the repo man getting his dog is cute, but insubstantial. Narration is excellent.
Dept Q, Harry Hole... where are you?
Well, if you can call it a series. This is a short story sequel of the incredible book, The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man. That novel is one of the funniest and clever novels on Audible.
George K Wilson is the perfect narrator for this story. He has the gift of timing, with a flair for capturing the irony within the story.
This story is as fun as the novel, only it left me panting for more. Soon!
This was a fun easy going listen. I loved the relationship between the Ruddy and Alan. Even though the cast is vast, its easy to keep up with who is who and just as easy to become invested those characters. George K. Wilson ROCKS! Seriously one of the absolute best. He gives distinction and life to every single character, be they old, young, male or female ....or a dog. I laughed out loud more than once and found myself sitting in the driveway just to finish a part. I hope Bruce Cameron writes 20 more Repo Man books!
I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.
This was just an introduction to Jake and it has made me want to read a whole book about him. My main problem was that it wasn't long enough. The writing was good and the other characters in the story were well fleshed out. You really did root for the good guy and the good dog, and against the bad guy.
Say something about yourself!
This book seems to be the first draft of something that could develop into a real book, but unfortunately, the writer didn't put the effort into finishing it.
It wouldn't matter who reads it if the book is bad.
This writer and I will go our separate ways.
