Publisher's summary

When a young girl is kidnapped, street-smart but damaged ex-cop California "Cal" Corwin is engaged to find and rescue her before murder raises the stakes. As a straightforward case takes unexpected twists, Cal must quell a growing fear that an anguished mother may never see her child again. With a shadowy crime lord lurking behind every unexpected clue, Cal struggles to tie up loose ends before evil claims its next victim.

Loose Ends is the first book in the new P. I. mystery series from D. D. VanDyke, a pen name of veteran bestselling technothriller author David VanDyke. Set against the rich backdrop of the San Francisco Bay Area, the Cal Corwin novels brim with intrigue and fully fleshed characters from cops and criminals to hit men, family and unexpected allies.

great audiobook, pretty good story

Story isn't what makes this a great audiobook, it's the characters and San Francisco's seedier nightlife setting. A savvy, sexy first-person female PI who gambles, loves cars , has daddy issues and keeps a shotgun in the trunk of her car? I want to meet this babe! Terrific, throaty narration, very well recorded, lots of fun characters from seedy to lowlife to a self-styled prince charming Aryan Brotherhood drug lord creep. Needs to be longer, which might also fix the unfinished feel of the story complained about in some reviews. Overall, a solid B/B+ effort. I'd probably spend a credit on another if there were more in the series, just to hear Cal pillow talk about her car some more, LOL.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.

Not Bad

Though this book was egregiously slow in spots I really liked it. As for the the characters, they are really great; particularly the protagonist. Cali Corwin is tough, smart, ballsy and has more testosterone that most men. I also liked her mom, Sergei and the tech geek Mickey. I plan the next book in the series really soon.
