Publisher's Summary

Infusing elements of dark reality into this richly detailed, comical series, Mcdonald's first volume, Flynn, delves deeper into the curious character first introduced in the best-selling Fletch series - Francis Xavier Flynn. 

Early one morning as Boston's only investigator is returning home from solving another peculiar case, he has the displeasure of witnessing a spectacularly horrible show outside his front door: a massive aircraft, carrying over one hundred souls, exploding in midair over the harbor. Almost immediately, the Human Surplus League takes credit for the heinous act of terrorism. But "Reluctant Flynn" isn't so easily convinced, unlike his partner and governmental counterparts. 

Now finding himself at the whim of the tedious and ill-mannered FBI agents as they follow bunk leads and question all the wrong suspects, he decides to do his own digging, employing family and encountering new friends and old acquaintances along the way. As the truth begins to trickle forth, Flynn finds himself staring down a much bigger - and much deadlier - problem.

Wow!

A fantastic narration of a great book. Even if you have had the entire Flynn series in paperback for years and reread them until you know the stories by heart, Donald Corren's narration makes getting the audible versions worth it. Super enjoyable portrayal of Flynn.

What a fun listen!!

I had no idea what I was getting into when I stumbled upon this listen but what a wonderful story!!! Flynn is fascinating, like seriously, just an incredible character. He's a detective, of sorts, and is easily the smartest person in the room. He witnesses a plane crash and the fun ensues. (I know that's a weird sentence but that's exactly what happened.) I loved the narrator. There is a twinkle in the eye of the Flynn character and the narrator delivered on that. The next book should be something special.

Enjoyable Read

Fun book with a lot of enjoyable twists, but I thought the story is a little too convoluted.

Flynn

There is too much blasphemy to enjoy the book. I will not be reading anymore of his books because of the blasphemy.
