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.

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.

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”.

Gaaallllleeee

You just have to read this book. It's like riding a roller coaster, just chugging along slowing going up to the top of the first hill and than -----WoW just one hill and valley after another. At times I couldn't help myself and suddenly a giggle and a laugh would escape my mouth at something that shouldn't have been funny but it was.

a straw cowboy hat

Great story within a story. I enjoyed reading this story about Troy and the troubles he gets tangled into and yet each story seems to work itself out. Read this mystery novel to find what Troy has gotten himself into now.

Hat Trouble…

I really enjoyed this audiobook… The hero of the story Troy Clint Bodean is an ex-soldier just looking for a quiet life on the beach and then he finds a new hat. I’m not going to say anything else about the storyline except I’m sure you will really enjoy Troy and like me you will be looking forward to his next adventure. Theo Holland’s narration is great which is a real plus.
