Good novella!

This was a short, fast pace and funny story. Jack Daniels stroke again with this new investigation. This was the third novella in the Jack Daniels P.I. Series. I like the author's black humour. The narration was great.

old fashion detective story

Again John Holt writes another good old fashion detective story. Trouble in mine brings to live detective Jack Daniels. I really like his character. A short story with good characters and a good story line.

There is no corse Language in it, or sex scenes. Although there is some violence it does not go into great details.

Narrator Peter Borys does a good job tell the story. The story is told in the first person. Borys gives each character alive with their own individual voices.

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher free of charge for a honest, unbiased review.

Good Short Story

This is a nice, short private investigator story, a nice narration. The story was a good one, but a tad predictable.

Great Gum Shoe!

I wasn't sure how I would like the slower paced gum shoe Private Eye but I have discovered that I love him. I tend to read higher octane fast paced books but Jack Daniels has found a place in my heart as a great storylines with a slower enjoyable pace that sets it apart. Kind of like a smooth Bourbon!

This is the first time I have heard a story narrated by Peter Borys and he has done an awesome job with Jack! I think John Holt had a trial and error while he found the right fit for Jack and Peter has stepped up to the plate and hit a homer.

I have loved it!! A great smooth story to change up your pace with plenty of intrigue to keep you hooked.

Not Just Whodunit but Who Is It?

So his client offers him a substantial payoff to dig a little dirt on her husband. He provides but she stiffs him. (He's never heard of a retainer?) Shrugging his shoulders he opens the paper to find her picture--attached to another name. Plus she's a corpse. Our P.I. is firmly molded in the noir conceit and plays his hard-boiled game to the . . . interesting . . . conclusion. I listened to narrator Peter Borys who gave a nice edge to the vocalizations.

Entertaining

Fun, quick listen. I liked the Film Noir style set in the present day. The narrator had a perfect dry, deadpan style for the private detective telling the story.

Book 3

This is the third of the Jack Daniels Novellas this is as good if not better than the first two. This continues with a link to the first two books, bringing more puzzles to be solved. I really enjoyed this series.

Where is my complete ending ?

As usual John Holt writing is beautiful but this book disappointed me a little because its ending was not completed like it does on the other books of his beautiful books.
Performance by Peter Borys is as good as usually.

Recommended !!!

Ace

Jack solves another mystery, really liked this book just as much as the first two. Starts off in this with a rough start but he is able to proves his worth in the end. I hope there will be more stories with Jack in the future.

An entertaining read

Book 3 in the series and another well written story. Although only a novella it had enough depth to keep it interesting and the characters were believable. It certainly kept me entertained while stuck in a huge traffic jam in the middle of Birmingham, UK. Probably saved my sanity too.

I received a free copy of this audiobook either from the author or a promotion or giveaway and am voluntarily writing an honest and unbiased review.

Great PI series

Betrayal, cheating spouses, fake identity what a mystery to unravel and Jack Daniels does it all. I love the character of Jack Daniels who is witty and pretty darn smart. John Holt is a fantastic storyteller and writes well. His characters are interesting and he has just the right amount of detail to make the story imaginable but not boring. Thanks, John for gifting me this free review copy.

Another fantastic murder mystery!

A case of surveillance turns into a case of murder.... but who was the girl? Another fantastic murder mystery brought to us by John Holt! Daniels learns a lesson and tries to figure out who killed his client and even more strangely who his client was. I had a fantastic time trying to put all the clues together myself! The story was well written with Peter Borys bringing life to yet another fantastic tale of murder and betrayal! Definately a book I would reccomend!
