Publisher's Summary

Lee Baylor runs a failing garage in a dying southern Virginia town and when old friend - but present-day con - Randy Watson shows up with a plan to make some quick cash, Lee's got to take it.

Randy's idea? Steal a one-of-a-kind, vintage Harley from millionaire movie star Jason Ford, who likes to act the hotshot biker at the annual Sweetwater motorcycle rally with his knockout starlet girlfriend Becky Winters.

The only hitch is that Jason's got money problems of his own, and when hillbilly gangster Baby Boy gets involved, there's going to be hell to pay when they all try stealing Sweetwater.

Outlandish and fun suspense thriller

The publisher's summary tells plenty about the story, but it does not do justice to the humor mixed in with the suspense. Stealing Sweetwater is a fun listen. Narration is superb.

Kinda cheesy

I write very few reviews but I felt like I needed to add my $.02 to this one.
This is a good book if you just want a relaxing story that doesn't have a lot of depth to the characters or storyline. It's well written and easy to follow but the story is, like my title says...cheesy.
The ending felt rushed. Almost as if the author got bored of writing the story and slapped together a few ideas. Almost gave it a whimsical Disney romance ending.
That's just the way I see it. No offense to the author. I'm not a writer and I appreciate people that do write.
Perhaps I'll read (or listen) to a few other books by Mathew Iden. Just to get a more rounded take.

Mixed feelings

There is humor here though it is of a black nature for the most part. I have mixed feelings about the tone of the story -- for the most part I really enjoyed it. Yet it comes with a certain callousness that didn't quite achieve tongue-in-cheek cleverness for me. Still worth a good listen!
