Publisher's Summary

Mitch Paulson, a burnt out Detroit homicide detective, retires to a small, Northern Michigan resort town only to be reluctantly coaxed out of retirement by his brother, the local Chief of Police, to investigate the murder of a beautiful, young female lobbyist from Washington, DC, whose body is found in a building of an abandoned state mental hospital. In the course of his investigation, Mitch finds himself enmeshed in the most complex case of his career.

    "Great Dollar a Year Detective Story!"

    Overall this book was great! There were moments when my attention to the story was lost but not too long before it pulled me back in. This book does have the perfect amount of everything...murder, mystery, strong characters. Not sure if this is a series but I believe it could be. Narrator was perfect for the rolls of each character... I personally find it hard at times to get into a good audible book with male readers but I didn't have that problem here.

    "I'm sorry, but this book just didn't do it for me."

    I have read over 300 books on audible, so I can be a little hard to please. I found the narration in this book annoying the narrator over pronounced every word all the characters sounded the same I was just not impressed. A good story can always overcome a pot narrator but I had problems with the book as well. It just seemed to me like a novel that someone would write for a college project. Again, I'm sorry I really can be hard to Please I received this book at no cost by the narrator author or publisher for I honest review

    "The Dollar a Year Man"

    “This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”

    A very good murder mystery that features politics and the insurance industry. Traverse City police chief calls he's wealthy retired brother to return as a detective to help solve the crime. He follows the clues and finds more crimes. Quite an interesting tale that holds the listener to the end. I hope there will be more of these characters in the future.

    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed.

    "An okay mystery"
    Any additional comments?

    You can tell from my prior reviews that I love a mystery, especially when the narration is in good balance. There is something about this narrator that did not resonate with me. Don't get me wrong--the narrator was good. I'm not sure what was there, or was not there, but the timbre of his voice kept me from settling in and really getting into this story. I started and stopped this listen quite a few times.

    When I finally put whatever that narration issue was aside, I was rewarded with a rather decent mystery. I would have preferred if the main character was a bit more, well, main. There were so many other officials solving the mystery that his voice got lost sometimes. Still, the ending had a nice little twist.

    "Nice mystery"

    I received this audio book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review. I enjoyed the mystery very much. The characters were interesting but didn't take away from the story itself. David Dear did an good job with the characters. My only problem was David sometimes over emphasized words and I found this distracting. The farther I listened though the less it bugged me.

    "Straight Line Mystery"

    This was a good story, but I am one who enjoys a good plot twist or two along the way. The characters are interesting and developed enough to enjoy and follow. The plot revolves around a murder, and a pretty good detective coming out of retirement to jump on the case. ***Warning - potential spoiler here***. The story just seems to outline how the detective hounds the perpetrator until he has enough evidence to confront him. Kind of know what happened the whole time. End of story with no surprise. Narrator was ok, but would be much better if he did not over enunciate each word. Took away from the story a little. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.

    Story
    "Politics,intrigue and murder!"

    I really enjoyed the story about politics, greed and murder. Mitch is a young retired detective, who is approached by his brother, Mark, Traverse City Chief of Police to help with a murder investigation. Mitch agrees to help for $1 per year since he doesn't need income (Mitch is a lottery winner millionaire). Carol is a young lobbyist in Washington DC and gets involved in an affair with a Senator from Michigan. She is found murdered in TC when she comes to visit her parents. As the investigation progresses, there are a good number of suspects in the world of politics and greedy health ins companies.

    Narrator did a good job with the different voices but tends to enunciate too strongly.

    This book was given to me by the author/narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
