Blurb: Mischief, thou art afoot.
Special Agent Ryan “Mac” McGuinness is having a rough week. Not only is he on a new diet, but he’s also been tasked with keeping Henry Page-the world’s most irritating witness-alive. Which is tough when Mac’s a breath away from killing the Shakespeare-quoting, ethically challenged, egg-obsessed Henry himself. Unless killing isn’t really what Mac wants to do to him.
Con man Henry Page prefers to keep his distance from the law . . . though he wouldn’t mind getting a little closer to uptight, handsome Agent McGuinness. As the sole witness to a mob hit, Henry’s a valuable asset to the FBI. But he’s got his own agenda, and it doesn’t involve testifying.
When evidence surfaces of a mole in the FBI office, Mac and Henry are forced to go into hiding. Holed up in a fishing cabin, they’re surprised to discover that their feelings run more than skin deep. But as the mob closes in, Henry has to make his escape. And Mac has to decide how far he’s willing to go to keep Henry by his side.
Review – Book: Jen Reviewed the book here.
And I agree with her assessment, this is a funny, unique book full of wit and great characters.
Review – Audio Book: Nick J. Russo is the PERFECT choice of narrators for this book. He’s got a naturally gritty tone that really suits this PI book with a tongue in cheek feel. Nick is always easy to listen to and he does a nice job differentiating all the different voices – including the ladies. 🙂 Henry and Mac’s voices are perfect and exactly as I’d imagined.
I highly recommend this book and the audiobook, and I look forward to the next in the series!
