A love story worthy of an old movie...with a new twist.
Artie needs a hero, a man like those he's always revered in Golden Age films. His drug-dealing jerk of a roommate got him arrested, and since his savior isn't likely to sweep in and save the day, Artie calls a bail bondsman.
August has always imagined himself a hero from a black-and-white movie, but he's never found a man willing to let him play that role - at least not until he gets the call from Artie.
Both of their dreams might come true, but not before August must use his skills as a bounty hunter as well as a bondsman. Artie is on the run for his life, and August must protect him and help him clear his name. Only then can they both finally get their man.

Sweet and fun
Sweet fun story about an old fashioned guy who just wants a partner who will love and look after him who meets his Mr right in the most unusual of circumstances. That’s what you get with August and Artie. It’s a bit of a farce and quite unlikely but when you just need something to raise a smile this did it for me. I thought the Black Bear ranch, featuring towards the end of the story, was familiar. If you’re wondering about the story of Neil and Cole the black bear ranch it can be found in Do You Trust Me. Unfortunately not available in an audiobook. As always Kenneth Obi provides a strong narration. He gives August the strong Hollywood Hero vibe and Artie the innocence that pulls it all together so well.

This was a fun "farce" as Arty seems to get himself into more trouble every time he tries to make it better. August is such a calm presence in a sea of crazy. This was a fun book to listen and I this story has all the great elements of a great comedy.
