I Believe!

Great story and narration!

Alfred is back and he is determined to prevent fiscal evildoers from escaping the long arm of the law! A shady UFO tourist trap seems to be shirking taxes, and Alfred will not stand for it! During his investigation he stumbles across and Alien abduction!?

This was a great continuation of the series. You will love it if you enjoyed the first on.

I am looking forward to the next book in the series!

Fun story, weird pace

The story is fun, with good characterizations, but the narration is oddly slow, with an unusually long pause between every single sentence.

I don't know what I expected, but this went above what I thought. It's still funny, and yes he has flaws, but it's for sure an enjoyable story. Thank you!

An Amazing Follow Up in the Series

I enjoyed this more than the first book and I really thought the first was amazing. The funny parts I’m the book made me laugh out loud. Especially the part when Alfred goes to the buffet and his friend eat the ribs. The book had funny setups and humor that mad it great. The Narrator also did and excellent job again and made it come alive for me. The rest of the series is now on my wish list.

Holy Sugar Cookies!

This series continues its fun romp as a satirical forray of science fiction, the perpetually annoying by the book g man and fantasy. There's something so awesome about this collection of characters and misadventures.

UFOs & Unpaid Taxes

Alfred Favero is no superhero, or is he? When a routine tax audit puts him in the situation of witnessing an alien abduction (it’s not what you think...), he knows what he needs to do, even if that means losing everything.

I enjoyed this fun story by Rachel Ford. Her main character is by no means perfect... he has his flaws, and I think that’s why I like him so much. He’s just an ordinary guy that finds himself in extraordinary situations.

The narration by John Carter Aimone was well done and enjoyable to listen to.

The truth is out there

Our hero is really good at his job, but sometimes mysteries are not meant to be discovered. This is one of those cases.

This is book two of the series. There are some references to the previous story, but overall it stands up just fine on its own, so feel free to start here. However, if you enjoy this one as much as I did, you will want to go back and read/listen to book one anyway.

This is a light science fiction novel with a heavy dose of dry humor. After all, what would you expect when the hero is a taxman who doesn't get why everyone dislikes tax collectors? The story is very well written and easy to read, but the plot has plenty of twists and turns that keep the reader guessing. The characters are also fantastic, really well developed with personalities that bring the story to life. Overall, a fun read that had be addicted from the start.

I should also mention that the narrator did a great job. The narration was clear, easy to follow and provided just the right hint of character emotions to support the story.

Highly recommended.

Not Your Typical Tax Auditor

If you enjoyed the first book in this series, you’re going to love this one. The new and improved, but still endearingly flawed, Alfred Favero, has set his sights on another tax cheat—a UFO-themed shop and museum called Landing Site Earth. They peddle trinkets to gullible Americans who believe that aliens regularly visit the planet and Alfred is certain they are underreporting their income to Uncle Sam. Unfortunately for Alfred, that is not the only thing they are underreporting as our favorite taxman discovers when he catches the owner of the shop with a genuine alien. Discovering this fact causes Alfred to run headlong into a black operation within the US government and forces him to take stock of himself and decide if he wants to be the kind of man who turns his back on an alien in trouble or the kind who puts it all on the line to rescue an intelligent being from the clutches of his government.

While all of this is happening, Alfred remains clueless regarding most human interactions and as a result he has accidentally pushed Nancy into the arms of Josh, the ex-marine from the first novel who desperately wants to be Nancy’s boyfriend. Josh is self-confident, physically fit, and comfortable with women—all things that Alfred is not. His situation is not helped by Alfred’s need to go on the run with Lee, the remarkably likeable alien. This is both the most enjoyable part of the novel and the one with most obvious weaknesses. Alfred spends a lot of money while he seeks to keep Lee out of government hands, but there is no mention of how he pays for everything. In today’s society, most of us do not have a lot of cash on hand and I would have appreciated it if the author could have make some passing explanation as to why Alfred has endless supplies of cash. After all, using his debit or credit card would have brought the government down on him in a moment. Still, it’s a small complaint—especially when compared to the delight of watching Lee discover America and hilariously give Alfred advise on how to win the heart of Nancy.

Narrator John Carter Aimone stepped up his game in this novel. The long pauses between sentences are much diminished and the tendency to be overly dramatic toned down a bit. He also has created a truly wonderful voice for the alien, Lee, catching all of the creatures wonder and pleasure at everything around him.

In summation, this is an utterly delightful book which leaves me eagerly looking forward to the next novel in the series.

I received this book for free from Audiobook Boom in exchange for an honest review.

Another great sci fi adventure

This second book is as good as the first and made me laugh almost as much.
Alfred the time travelling tax man rescues an alien and shows them the human world.
I fell in love with both Nancy and Alfred in the first book and was delighted their friendship continued in this book. I closely associate with Nancy and feel both her and Alfred’s characters have been captured very well and very consistently across these stories.
I really hope there will be more stories to come in this series as I thoroughly enjoyed them.

Alfred is in Over His Head Again

Oh how I loved this - Alfred is such a straight-up guy, how can anyone believe he is lying, he never lies and he just cannot understand how anyone could believe he did so, of course, he has to prove he wasn't lying and off he goes into an even more of an adventure than the one he was accused of lying about.

He is just such a straight guy, what you see is what you get but oh I love him, he is as straight as a ruler, straighter in fact but he is such an innocent, he sees things and assumes its bad, he doesn't have much faith in the niceness of humanity, being a tax man and dealing with tax cheats has not given him much chance to do so.

Nancy of course appears but she is dating someone else - poor Alfred.

Is he going to come out of this alive or will he end up in prison, locked away in a deep hole never to see daylight again - read and see.............

Like book one there are twists you don't see coming and it just makes the book so readable.

I was given this book free and asked if I would write an honest review and as I adore the book, its like book one, an easy review to write, to easy to give spoilers...........go buy the book. Unless you are looking for books that cross every T and dot every i and want your sci-fi without imagination, you will love this book and the first one.

I do not know the author or have anything to do with audible or any publisher just an audible member who loves books that take her out of her normal life and take her into the world of the book.
