Publisher's Summary

Remember those people that destroyed the economy and then cruised off on their yachts? Well guess what? Someone is killing them.

Dublin is in the middle of a heat wave, and tempers are running high. The Celtic Tiger is well and truly dead, activists have taken over the headquarters of a failed bank, the trial of three unscrupulous property developers teeters on the brink of collapse, and in the midst of all this, along comes a mysterious organisation hell-bent on exacting bloody vengeance in the name of the little guy. 

Paul Mulchrone doesn’t care about any of this; he has problems of his own. His newly established detective agency is about to be DOA. One of his partners won’t talk to him for very good reasons, and the other has seemingly disappeared off the face of the earth for no reason at all. Can he hold it together long enough to figure out what Bunny McGarry’s colourful past has to do with his present absence? 

When the law and justice no longer mean the same thing, on which side will you stand? 

The Day That Never Comes is the second book in Caimh McDonnell’s Dublin Trilogy, which melds fast-paced action with a distinctly Irish acerbic wit.

Loved Volume 2 even more than Volume 1

I loved listening to this story. All of the characters are so wonderfully written and the various voices the narrator used were just about perfect. The author has such an ability to put humor into the scenes and the dialogue while at the same time providing the action and drama of a great story. I have fallen in love with Paul, Bridgit, Phil, Bunny and Maggie (a German shepherd). I can hardly wait for the third volume to come out!

This one needed an editor

I started with the prequel to this series which I loved so bought all 3 of The Dublin Trilogy at once. Book 1 was again a great fun adventure but The Day That Never Came needed a good editor to keep the story moving. Long explainers did not add depth or color so much as filling space that didn’t need filling. Love Bunny & company so fingers are crossed that Book 3 gets the original snappy focus back.

Wonderful New Series

Run, don't walk to download and listen to The Dublin Trilogy. Spoiler - there are actually four books in this Trilogy - which you'll be thrilled about because three just isn't enough. I can't recommend these books enough and am anxiously awaiting Caimh's next book - Audible HURRY UP! Narrator is terrific too.

Great story, great voice actor

I loved this book. So far it's the only book I've enjoyed more in Audible than when reading. The voice acting is something really special.

Outstanding Follow up

The book is imho better than the first. Morgan’s performance is incredible and greatly enhances the story over standard print. All the various characters really come alive thanks to him. Caimh writes some really interesting and quirky characters. I look forward to the renaming books in the series being available in audio.

Excellent follow up to the first book

Having gone straight to the second book from the first it was great to find out that, if anything, it was better. Characters were fleshed out further and amongst the horrors there were laugh out loud moments. The narration is very good but just like the first book there are some very obvious edits cut in with different volume and tone that interrupt the flow for the listener. This is not enough to ruin the experience but seems incongruous to the overall quality of story and performance hence the missing star. I shall be moving straight on to the 3rd book with eager anticipation.

More mad-cap adventures

The 2nd in the Dublin Trilogy series starring Bunny, Paul and Brigit. Carrying on where the first left off, with adventures, mishaps, mystery, murder and some other great characters this was a great next book in the series. With some funny moments, some sad bits and a few moments to make you gulp. To try and keep their dream alive of a private detective agency, Paul accepts a case. What starts then is a story of greed and corruption which spirals out of control. But Paul is on his own, with Brigit not speaking to him and Bunny missing. How will he manage? With new partner Maggie beside his side, the escapades just keep happening. A great 2nd book in the series, looking forward to listening to the 3rd.

Fab

This is the 2nd in the series & does not disappoint. It’s a bit more serious than the 1st one, bunny though. Honestly I crack up every time he arrives! The back story is a tough one and really gritty. The one liners will keep you laughing. The narrator is spot on or **** hot. Fab

Great story, love the accent

I was thrilled this was narrated with an Irish accent, and don’t worry it’s very mild so you’ll have no bother understanding it. Totally made the book for me

A treat from start to finish.

I adore this series. The characters are wonderful and the narration is just extraordinary. I actually preferred this storyline to it's predecessor, A Man With One of Those Faces), as the relationships have developed and you start to root for them. Bunny McGarry is possibly my favourite fictional character ever, even in his darkest moments he is snort out loud funny. Brilliant book, start the series immediately- you won't regret it!

Comedy and Thriller

Paul Mulchrone, Brigit, Bunny, and new partner Maggie (a dog) these hard drinkers and I mean hard have got themselves a detective agency, this author is clever with words and full of Irish wit, is it a comedy or thriller? well it's both hard to believe but it kept me gripped as well as a few laughs along the way Bunny goes missing so the gang gets to work looking for him, now as Bunny is missing the author has to take you back for the reason as to why or how Bunny goes missing this is McDonnell's second book of three and the characters are lovely full of the Irish blarney, charming and they must be proud to be Irish, take a listen to The Dublin Trilogy although there are four books if you count the prequel you will not be disappointed best to listen to in order so I have just one more to go.

I love this narrator!!

Morgan C Jones could read me the phone book and I would enjoy it! Having enjoyed the prequel and book one in this series, I went straight on to book 2, the prequel is still my favourite, but maybe because I listened to that first, but enjoyed this book almost as much. The narrator brings this story to life for me, and does the voices exceptionally well. This book had me laughing at times, partly the comedic writing, but also the delivery of the narrator.
