Marcus Wade was a man who wasn't easily intimidated - that is, until he had reason to believe someone was trying to kill him. Upon talking the matter over with his wife Sybil, he decided to hire someone who would not only protect him, but who would also scare off any potential murderers. Enter private detective Brett Cornell, who jumps at the chance to push his weight around on the man's behalf, but is even more anxious to get it on with the lovely Sybil Wade, as well as her younger and even more voluptuous sister Nora - for starters!

Brett finally has some competition in the unscrupulous bastard category and I love it! Just like in the other Brett books, the private detective uses his humor and unique charm to help solve a mystery. I don't want to give anything away but what I love about these books are that they are really funny but also really good mysteries that makes you think!

Travis Henry Carter is superb as Brett Cornell and I always get a kick out of him! This is one you won't want to miss!

The beautiful and alluring Tammy Rankin and her brother Andy were positively grief-stricken when their well-to-do father died of a fatal heart attack. In fact, their grief was intensified when they realized that their young stepmother stood to inherit his vast fortune; that is, unless they could somehow suggest foul play and pin a murder rap on the woman. They obviously needed to enlist the services of someone who was totally devoid of any amount of scruples whatsoever.

As usual, the unscrupulous bastard, in David D'Aguannos Brett Cornell series, doesn't fail to deliver! Lots of funny moments and an overall great mystery novel! The narration was great like always. I don't think I'll ever get tired of having Travis Henry Carter narrate Brett. he does such an amazing job and makes me laugh the whole way through the book!

Epik thought he’d found what he was looking for: magic, adventure, and friendship. He’d saved an entire kingdom. But at what cost? Without his mentor, learning magic seems an impossible feat. And becoming a knight is proving...different than he ever expected. A new enemy rises, and the city is under attack once more. The ten years of peace and prosperity promised to Dune All-En was over almost before it began.

I really enjoyed the 2nd book in the Epik Fantasy series. It had a lot of light-hearted and fun moments and I really enjoyed the characters in this one. I liked this one better than the first book because the characters are already established and we can jump into the action a lot quicker. The narrator was also much better this time than the last book.

This was a short but really good listen. In only 45 minutes Michael Bussa throws in a bunch of twist and turns to keep his audience guessing. I enjoyed this story a lot and loved all the subtle twists. This will definitely be a story I will give another listen to in the future!

The narration was good as well, no complaints!

This had to be my favorite Brett Cornell Mysteries book so far! This story is a little darker than the previous books but the humor and wit from David D'Aguanno is still there!

I loved everything about this book. It was funny, it had plenty of mystery and we got to see another side of Brett that I think the listener will really enjoy.

The narration is perfect and I just love listening to Brett! I hope this is the start to a deeper side of Brett because I really enjoyed the darker tones of the story as well as more emotions coming from Brett. Great story, great narrating, great overall!

"Gary N. and Helen W. Trank of 66 Colstone Boulevard take great pleasure in announcing the recent nuptials of their daughter Pamela Ann, and Brett Cornell...." The above words appeared in the local newspaper, and thousands of women throughout the city immediately went into mourning! Well, not exactly. But private detective and self-proclaimed unscrupulous bastard Brett Cornell nearly went into cardiac arrest when, shortly thereafter, he received a personal home visit from Homicide Lieutenant James Wilson.

The unscrupulous bastard is back in Wedding Bells for Brett! As always, David D'Aguanno has such a clever and funny writing style that you just want to continue listening.

Travis Henry Carter's narration is spot on and just makes Brett sound so believable. I just love these stories and can't get enough of them!

I know Bretts antics aren't for everyone but if you're open minded when you listen you'll really hear some funny and great stories! I can't wait to listen to the next one!

Villains Pride is the 2nd book in the Shadow Master series and it's just as good as the first one! I love the humor in it and how the author breaks the fourth wall! I enjoyed the different premise to this book as well! Last book was set in a fantasy universe and this one was set in a comic book universe. It really helped keep the story fresh and interesting!

Jeffrey Kafer does another wonderful job with his narrating. He just puts on such a wonderful performance and keeps me interested the whole way through!
