Publisher's Summary

This short story introduces former college football star turned repo man Ruddy McCann, star of W. Bruce Cameron’s new novel The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man, and tells how Ruddy met his best friend Jake, a lazy but lovable basset hound, during a repo gone wrong. Full of laugh-out-loud humor and thrilling adventure, "The Midnight Dog of the Repo Man" is a page-turning, delightful short story by the author of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling A Dog’s Purpose, A Dog’s Journey, and The Dogs of Christmas that shows us that unconditional love is just a tail wag away and can happen upon us when we least expect it.

I crave for more in this wonderful series...

Well, if you can call it a series. This is a short story sequel of the incredible book, The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man. That novel is one of the funniest and clever novels on Audible.

George K Wilson is the perfect narrator for this story. He has the gift of timing, with a flair for capturing the irony within the story.

This story is as fun as the novel, only it left me panting for more. Soon!

Cute short story!

This one hour story of the repo man getting his dog is cute, but insubstantial. Narration is excellent.

I really enjoyed this book!

Any additional comments?

This was a fun easy going listen. I loved the relationship between the Ruddy and Alan. Even though the cast is vast, its easy to keep up with who is who and just as easy to become invested those characters. George K. Wilson ROCKS! Seriously one of the absolute best. He gives distinction and life to every single character, be they old, young, male or female ....or a dog. I laughed out loud more than once and found myself sitting in the driveway just to finish a part. I hope Bruce Cameron writes 20 more Repo Man books!

A delightful intro to The Repo Man series

What did you love best about The Midnight Dog of the Repo Man?

Cute, left me wanting more. Fabulous narration. A quick introduction to the series. I think I've found a hidden treasure.

Who was your favorite character and why?

You just can't pick one. I loved them all, with their quirks and humor.

Have you listened to any of George K. Wilson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No. This was my first, but definitely not my last.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Delightful, curiois, odd and just plain fun!

Any additional comments?

I started the first two chapters of "The Midnight P,an of the Repo Man" first, then found this intro to the series. From what I listened to in the second book, I had to buy this one for a little over $1. I look forward to continuing "Midnight Plan ..."

Repo man and the dog.

I enjoyed this short story. The dog stole my heart and I doubt that I am the only one that it happened to.

This makes me want to read more about Jake

This was just an introduction to Jake and it has made me want to read a whole book about him. My main problem was that it wasn't long enough. The writing was good and the other characters in the story were well fleshed out. You really did root for the good guy and the good dog, and against the bad guy.
