I don't know if I would read another J. R. Rain book.
I'd need to know that I wasn't going to be ambushed by a twist in the plot that described such horrible animal abuse as was in this book.
I"m not sure
I would cut the entire part about the dog abuse. When I first discovered J. R. Rain's books I read everything here on Audible as quickly as I could. I loved them. Then when Hail Mary came out I bought it and started listening to it. I was so upset by the portrayal of dog abuse that I could not listen to any more of it. I am an animal lover and am very concerned with their protection. But, when I listen to books it is for enjoyment. I am disappointed in Mr. Rain for this book. I don't know if I can trust him so I could read any more of his books.
It's in the top 75%. It's a tongue in cheek comedy/mystery.
It kept me entertained. Something is always happening around Jim as he plods along.
I listed to other Jim Knighthorse stories and enjoyed them all, this one included.
Ex-jock takes on the bad guys and wins one for the animals.
Thank you to the other reviewers for the warning. I enjoyed the easy reading of the first two books. This one I could not finish due to the subject matter. I work in Huntington Beach, frequent the dog beach, and love animals. I made it to chapter 18 and had to stop reading. The subject matter about the animals bothered me too much to continue. Therefore, out of fairness to the author, I rated the book as I did with the two prior in the series. I wanted to only rate the reader, but I was not allowed to do so.
If you're an animal lover this one might be hard to hear. It goes into uncomfortable descriptions of animal cruelty. To offset the shark fin case he also goes on the hunt for a flasher. In between those cases he continues to look for his mother's murderer. It's a short book but there's a lot packed into it with a surprise ending. And, of course, his ego is heard from a lot.
