Summary

This is the nine-book series of comedy-mysteries featuring the tough and crass "unscrupulous bastard" himself - a rude, wise-cracking private detective who happens to be a hugely successful ladies' man, thanks largely to what he immodestly refers to as his "Adonis-like features". 

In a series of tales involving murder, blackmail, and other assorted acts of violence and deceit, Brett learns the hard way that there's a steep price to be paid for being such an unscrupulous bastard - and listeners may very well feel that he gets exactly what he deserves, and more! 

Not recommended for the politically-correct crowd.

The original Unscrupulous Bastard.


This book is a fantastic bargain: all 9 of the Brett Cornell mysteries brought together in one cover, each designed to delight and appall.
In case you haven't yet met Brett Cornell, he is the sort of PI anyone would have to be desperate to employ since he doesn't believe in working for his retainer. Instead he spends his time mostly drinking Heiniken, gambling and indulging his fantasies about his sexual prowess and a hoped for retirement with loads of money by the age of 40. He is a rude, egotistical, sarcastic, Marlborough smoking, lager swilling, spitting,. aggressive, loud mouthed, chauvinistic blonde mustachioed sleazeball. But he certainly does seem to appeal to the ladies (even when they loath him). He's the larger than life, almost comic hero that the reader can love to hate.. As Brett himself would say, "It's great bein' me, ain't it?"

Told from the point of view of Brett himself, the antics of this self absorbed, egotistical, crude, insensitive, narsasistic brute of a man may not be politically correct but sure is very funny. And he is perfectly captured in the narration of Travis Henry Carter as he reads with understanding and emotion and with great intonation and pauses. His voicing of the other characters is also superb, especially those of the several women in the tale: he has a full cast seemingly at his disposal. A remarkable performance.

Good stories, great character, the biggest mystery, though, is how did he live to be 36?
This is not a book for the easily offended: Brett really is a disgusting example of manhood. But for sometimes laugh out loud antics of this sex crazed moustachioed 'hero', these books cannot be beaten

Not for me

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Too much testosterone flying about in these books for me. Male chauvinism at its finest don’t read if you get offended by women being treated as sex objects 😂

Bring some fun into your life.

In this entire series some Audio books are more entertaining then others but they all are fun and will entertain most listeners.


The main character is an old fashioned Testosterone blazing Macho Man who will bring giggles to any listener who enjoys writing that is witty and in harmless fun.

The Narrator is wonderful in capturing the main character and often seems the main character.

Concluding, You get great value in having the whole series with one credit..... this is a Series that will give you hours
of entertainment.




This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Brett Cornell, Unscrupulous? YES!

Definitely not for the politically-correct crowd. Brett Cornell IS a self-described unscrupulous bastard so if you're easily offended, these might not be your cup of tea. The writing by David D'Aguanno is brought to life by the very talented Travis Carter. The writing and narration set the stage for this "place" and "time" where Brett Cornell's world can exist with sarcasm, dry wit and salacious "endeavors".

Think Andrew Dice Clay as an entertainment This review is for the whole series.

Once you accept vulgar as a form of entertainment, you’ll get a big kick from this series.
Both the Author, David D’Aguanno, and the Narrator, Travis Henry Carter, did an amazing job with character development and Travis Henry Carter’s many voices makes it all too easy to forget it’s the same person reading all the characters. Both are very talented. May you have continued success to you both in the future.

I would hope they would consider working together on a different story line, appropriate for Children supporting ideals and skills for single parent children.

Thank you everyone for the hours of entertainment you have provided me.

AWESOME SERIES, BRETT FREAKING ROCKS!

I'm very sarcastic by nature LOL, so I am in love with this series! In some ways, I think more like a guy than like a girl, and I love sarcastic humor.
THESE BOOKS ARE AWESOME! Just about a guy named Brett....

I've read most of them now, I have a couple more to finish and will update my review if needed.
They're all funny, edgy, gritty, great fun stories.

Love the writing, love the narration, if you want a fun, edgy series, this is the one!
I'm not offended, and this series is highly recommended!
Most definitely, check this out. You'll be glad you did.

Fantastic deal!

Without question, my favorite mystery series. Expertly written, beautifully performed, and funny as hell. But be informed--not politically correct, so party-poopers need not apply. Otherwise, you'll love Brett!

made for Audio

this series was made for audio. Travis Henry Carter brings life into Brett's character with an amazing performance. David D'Aguanno created the best anti-hero I've ever read, and the reader simply cannot help but fall in love with this unscrupulous bastard.

Not for the stiff hearted

These books are not for the stiff hearted. You MUST have a sense of humor to get into these books.

Now with that being said these books are hilarious. Brett Cornell is a scrupulous bastard. He is gross, mean, sexist, and a pompous jerk. The things that happen to him he mostly deserves. It is really neat to see him grow through the books. I don’t like giving to much away but Ginger changes him. I hope that you enjoy these as much as I did. Let loose and have fun with these books. I can’t wait till the 10 book is written!

Lewd, repugnant, vulgar... oh, and awful

There is nothing redeemable in this mess. Badly written? Check. Prepubescent? Check. The author and publisher lack shame. Remember “shame”? Among other things, an inability to feel personal debasement is considered a piece of a sociopath’s mental luggage. One wonders if David D’Aguanno’s personality might be easily diagnosed by anyone who’s psychological training went no farther than a quick read of any one issue of “Psychology Today.” Halfway into the first book in this collection I wondered if this crud’s publisher was known for producing “The Art of Spitting Fat, Gooey, Lugies”. If I’m right, then this series is a deep leap down. The story and narrative has no bottom. The Brent Cornell Mysteries, will make a teenage cretin feel scummy.

Travis Henry Carter apparently had few alternative offers and some publishing pimp put him out onto the book-reading street to narrate execrable eliminations like this. I hope it hasn’t closed off his ability to ever get a decent job. His application for honorable work though will always carry the stench of what he read here.

I’m returning this.
