Publisher's Summary

Hank Hammond, ink hardly dry on his private investigator business cards, never anticipated that a chance encounter with a pair of suspicious characters and a mysterious crate would change his life forever. But it did, and nearly ended his life...also very much forever. And the deeper Hank gets into his investigation, the more the danger spreads until ultimately imperiling other innocent - and not so innocent - people, including his client, wealthy octogenarian Walter Tompkins, the client's favorite grandson Richard, and Hank's reluctant investigating partner, legal assistant Lori Reed. 

Navigating the varied neighborhoods of Kingston Beach, California, from hilltop country club to dumpster site, coastal marina to his own apartment, Hank unravels a series of crimes - past, current, and future - and with just the right combination of strength, skill, cunning, and luck, he might just be able to prevent the most virulent crime of them all.

Move Over, Paul Drake!

Modern noir, cell phones and pay phones both had their places. But this PI was gradually but genuinely appreciative of his secretary/sidekick's input. Perfectly narrated by Dan Gallagher, the story was entertaining and engaging with lots of references to '60s (and earlier) TV detectives. Delightful!

Reminiscent of Magnum PI

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were unique and endearing. I loved the "sass" in this book and the original storyline. I thought the narrator did a great job with this book. I was glad the mystery was solved and was surprised with who the villain was. This is a standalone book. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator in the future.

Amazing PI story

If you could sum up Double Take in three words, what would they be?

Hank is the epitome of a want to be magnum P.I. He tries very hard to help on old fragile man find his missing grandson while riding a high of a an accidental drug bust. The chemistry between Hank and Lori is wonderful I love her sass! This book was absolutely wonderful I just enough suspense and intrigue to keep you hooked but not so over the top that it too unbelievable. This book is well worth a credit!! I received this book for free for an honest review.
