Daniel McEvoy has a problem. Well, really, he has several, but for this Irish ex-pat bouncer at a seedy, small-time casino, the fact that his girlfriend was just murdered in the parking lot is uppermost in his mind. That is until lots of people around him start dying, and not of natural causes. Suddenly, Daniel’s got half the New Jersey mob, dirty cops, and his man-crazy upstairs neighbor after him, and he still doesn't know what's going on.

John's Irish accent and spot-on inflections made this hero bigger than life! The author takes the reader/listener on a roller coaster ride with interesting characters, especially the one in the hero's head.

Major Holly Barker, the army brat daughter of a master sergeant, has been forced into early retirement at the age of 37 as the result of a scandalous sexual harassment case. With the help of her dad, she makes the move to civilian life, becoming deputy chief of police in Orchid Beach, Florida. But below the surface of this sleepy, well-to-do coastal island town lies a web of evil and deceit that escalates when a colleague and another associate are brutally gunned down.

This was a very enjoyable "listen". The characters were interesting and quirky, the plot was fast moving. The only thing that would improve this story would be an "unabridged" version to fill in the gaps and give greater depth to the characters. Monk's reading was terrific! Brava!!
