Publisher's Summary

From Amazon Number 1 best-selling author, David F. Berens. Back from his tour in Afghanistan, Troy Clint Bodean had everything he needed for some peace and quiet: a good fishing pole, a pickup truck, and a beach house on a small island in South Carolina. All was right with the world - until he found the hat. It was a straw cowboy hat with a peacock feather stuck in the band and it looked good on him, really good. That's when everyone started trying to kill him, and he had no idea why. Hold on to your hat! Suspenseful, gripping, and fast-paced, Hat Check - the first Troy Bodean Adventure - follows Troy trying desperately to stay alive and figure out why everyone is out to get him. Readers of Carl Hiaasen, Randy Wayne White, and Tim Dorsey will love the island feel and snappy humor of Hat Check.

Carl Hiaseen meets the Coen brothers

What made the experience of listening to Hat Check the most enjoyable?

Action driven story with a comedic edge. The narrator did a great job with the character voices, adding another dimension to the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hat Check?

Some of the exchanges between the two thugs had me equally laughing and horrified. Great, visceral imagery.

Which character – as performed by Theo Holland – was your favorite?

Hard to pick a favorite. The main character is sympathetic and engaging, carrying the story.

Some of the scenes with the two thugs are hilarious.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Very funny and action driven.

A wild, rollercoaster ride!

What a fun ride! Crazy characters brought into each others' orbits through crazier circumstances.
Mr. Berens crafted an interesting story with wonderful characters, & Theo Holland really brought them to life.
I simply loved Darren 'The Body' McGlashin, both as written & as voiced.

Fun, Rollicking Adventure Made Better by Narration

Hat Check is the first story in a Series featuring beach adventure Troy Beaudine. The book reminded me a lot of the film “it’s a mad mad mad mad world”.
