The sequel to Don't Ever Get Old, which garnered four-starred reviews, a movie deal with a major Hollywood producer, and an Edgar Award nomination for Best First Novel
Twentysomething Daniel Friedman's debut hit novel, Don't Ever Get Old, was a huge critical and word-of-mouth success. Now his unforgettable protagonist BuckSchatz is back, and once again this 88-year-old retired Memphis cop refuses to go gently into that good night. Having sustained injuries in Don't Ever Get Old, Buck is living at a retirement home with his wife, and he's downright miserable being treated like the elderly person he is. But soon, Elijah, a man from his past, pays Buck a visit. Elijah offers Buck a tidy sum to do him a favor, and Buck is eager to close the book on a series of robberies that he could never solve. But things soon go downhill - way downhill.
Written in Buck's signature voice and featuring a mystery that will knock your socks off, Don't Ever Look Back is another home run by an author with a long and star-studded career ahead of him.

What a great book. Another adventure for Buck. I missed the involvement of his grandson. Tequila is in this one but not as much. I love the banter and especially the techie talk between them. Again the Jewish culture subtlety in spot on-not too much just the right amount and easily understood. And again so many laugh out loud moments-I know people were looking at funny, seemingly laughing at nothing.
Again to the author: Buck could not have been quiet for 30 + years since retiring, no way. You better write a couple of prequels for us!
The Buck Schatz books by Daniel Friedman are two of my all-time favorites on Audible. Great character, really funny, interesting plot and setting. I hope he writes more.
