Publisher's Summary

Alex Dunn owned one of the most valuable collections of hobo nickels in the world, and it appears somebody killed him for it. Now Roy Ballard and Mia Madison are hired by the insurance company to track the collection down, which means they might reveal the identity of the killer in the course of their investigation. But the more they dig, the more suspects they uncover, including Dunn's children, his ex-wife, and a buxom masseuse who takes a hands-off approach to the services she offers.

    "Great Texas Story"

    l love Ben Rehder stories about Texas characters. Roy Ballard is one of my favorites and is a charming reluctant hero. His description of the locale in Austin is so realistic I can visualize the buildings. I am looking forward to the next book.

    I am a husband/dad/granddad who loves books. My reviews are my subjective opinions. My hope is they will help others make buying decisions.

    Story
    "It's mostly about hobo nickels!"

    It is also about a murder. The real strengths of If I Had a Nickel by Ben Rehder are the vivid characters and the offbeat story. This is Book 3 in the Ray Ballard series. Ballard and his partner Mia Madison are supposedly PI's, but they are not licensed. The story is set in Austin Texas. The duo are hired by an insurance company to find out what happened to one of the most valuable collections of hobo nickels in the world after the old man who owned them died. There is no shortage of potential thieves. It is a fun story which I enjoyed. Johnny Peppers narrates very well.

    "no thanks"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    no clue


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Johnny Peppers?

    narrator was ok


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from If I Had a Nickel?

    chapter one begins with a big boobed prostitute smacking men with her breasts - that was enough of this book for me


    Any additional comments?

    I won't read any more of this author. A good mystery is a fun thing, but I don't enjoy raunchy.
