Publisher's Summary

"Got a gun?"

With those words, David Allen Crockett, a retired police officer who simply wanted to be left alone, finds his seclusion shattered by his friend, therapist Ruby LaCost. At Ruby's request, Crockett agrees to teach one of her clients, Rachael Moore, how to defend herself with a handgun.

During the course of those lessons, Crockett and Rachael begin an intimate relationship. When Rachael is found dead from an apparent suicide, Crockett is devastated and tries to slink back into his self-imposed seclusion. But things get complicated when Crockett is contacted by Rachael's aunt, who believes the suicide was staged and claims she has the name of the murderer. Together, Crockett and Ruby begin an investigation that leads them into a world of treachery, deceit, and death.

    "Improbable"

    A story that every middle school boy would love. A lot of sexual innuendo, the hero who can turn a lesbian straight and just happens to have a billionaire friend who loves doling out cash.
    Added bonus is occasional tutorials that any adult needs not hear.
    I did enjoy the first hour or so! :)
    I do love this author tho, he would do better sticking to his cowboy stories....

    Story
    "One of the Most Gifted Contemporary Writers"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    For sure. Both the writing and the performance/narration are excellent--very entertaining.


    What other book might you compare Fear of the Father: Call Me Crockett to and why?

    If you like Robert B Parker books you will like this one.


    What does David R. Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    One of the best book narrators in the business--a veteran performer. Listen to a sample.


    Any additional comments?

    A great crime novel with fast paced action and unpredictable turns and characters. The Crockett character has unique and effective ways of doing his work. Really interesting characters and situations.

    Highly recommended!

    "Very good books series. I like books by Robert B P"
    What made the experience of listening to Fear of the Father: Call Me Crockett the most enjoyable?

    I like books by Robert B Parker, Tom Clancy, and many more. But I have found David R Lewis and I am hooked. I like the audible books and David narrates his own books. He gives the characters in the books more personality than any other books I have bought on audible. Try some for yourself and you will love it too. His voices for the characters good. Thank you David for the great books you have given us.

    "Much better than what I thought"

    As a fan of Lewis's books, I really didn't know how this might be. But his writing and reading of the story were both great. I loved all the Trail series, but .this one came up to the same standards I thought it would be.

    "Average"

    Set in Kansas City with a medically retired pilice detective and his rherapist and , a murder with all rhe time, money and helpful contacts one could wish in a c4im7nal invesrigation. I enjoyed the banter though it seems to take the place of detection. I liked it well enoigh to look for more in the series.
