Summary

I’m rather used to the crazy cases, because let’s face it, most cops can handle the run-of-the-mill with their eyes closed. I’m only called in when the situation is weird or they need to solve the case fast. 

This case is a little of both. 

Someone’s attacking women as they get off of work, hitting them in the back of the head. What started as a case of battery has steadily built up to homicide. With three murders, six victims, and no leads, the Clarksville PD is desperate to catch the assailant. But there’s no real leads for us to follow, either, and for once my eyes can’t really help. 

A madman running around attacking women is bad enough, but the police are demanding answers we can’t give them, and they’re not taking no for an answer. It’s pushing us all past our limits, and frankly, I don’t know what’s going to break first: the case or Donovan’s patience.

Good story

A well written story with and interesting  concept.  The characters are likeable and the narration is good but I preferred the previous narrator.

I love this series

its hard to find a psy-cop type book i love, but I did with this one. I bought the first one right before Kenneth Obi passed away and it took me 4 months to be able to listen to him (I'd been listening to a kenneth obi narration when I actually got the news he'd passed away.) Lloyd is a good narrator, new to me because of this series, I'll be looking out for him again. the only reason I haven't given 5 full stars (wanted to put 4.5 stars) is that i listened to book 1 and 2 back to back. if Lloyd narrated both 1 and 2 I would have no problems. the story is fab! I am looking forward to more in audible from this series.

Better than book 1...

When I read the first book in this series I loved it but that usually meant higher expectations for the following books. In this case, the expectations were well placed, the second book is even better!!! Interesting new characters, (and the base for another story, I hope), great reaffirmation of Donovan and Jon as couple all in a storyline full of action. After loving so much the book, the cherry on top is to have the opportunity to reread It again and again hearing it in the amazing narration of Mr Thomas, who made an outstanding job with the voice acting and the management of all the characters. I can't wait for the audiobook of book 3. Loved it!!

Crazy good and a lot of fun!

A few months ago I listened to the first book in this series and I fell head over heels for these characters and the world AJ Sherwood created and couldn’t wait to spend more time in it. I was soo happy when this book was released. Again, the title of the book is quirky – and kind of fitting to Jon in a way, and it definitely fits the case. And while it is a new case I still urge you to start from book one to really get to know the world and characters to get to know them and their backstory, and some subtle – and not so subtle hints. Jon and Donovan have come far, and still have ways to go. They are a great match for each other, and while it at times can feel very one sided it’s clear that they both are what the other needs. Their relationship doesn’t get much page time in this book, it kind of took a backseat to the case. I feel the story as a whole wasn’t as strong as book one. Parts of it were resolved too quickly and easily and I wished they were more fleshed out. But you know what? I had a great time anyway! So… elephant in the room…. This book has, due to tragic circumstances a different narrator from the first book. Lloyd Thomas is a new narrator for me and also to the field it seems. This is usually a bit of a gamble, and starting in the middle of a series will never be easy – especially considering the large shoes he had to fill. This gamble though, paid off – big time. You can’t tell he only has a few books in his repertoire. He narrates with a surety of someone well versed in the field and he hits so many of my high points; he differentiates between characters, has great pacing, adds that little extra with sound effects for phone calls, he also narrates with passion and really connects with the characters and makes the listeners connect with them as well. The book is narrated from both Jon and Donovan’s POV and I really loved how Thomas did that. Most narrators narrate a book in their regular voice, only modifying it for dialogues to keep track of who says what. That’s not the case here. Everything told from Donovan’s POV is told in Donovan’s deeper voice, descriptions, monologues and what not. I find that I really enjoyed it. It’s something simple that so clearly shows us who the listener is following, connecting us to the characters and the story that much more. With this book Thomas clearly shows what he’s capable off and I can’t wait to listen to more of his productions in the future, because I hope there will be many more. A copy of this book was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review for Loev Bytes.

Great second in this series

Good story with surprise ending. Really appreciated this narrator; he did an excellent job and Jon’s depiction is one of a truly adult man. Well worth it.

I like Jon and Donovan so much

I love these characters and I love the story. I have mixed feelings about the narrator but I found it hard nor to compare him to Kenneth Obi who narrated the first book. I miss the deep rumble that Kenneth did for Donovan. This narrator gives the same voice to every character. It’s hard sometimes to tell Jon and Donovan apart, and while I can say that this narrator did a much more natural sounding southern accent than Kenneth did, not all the characters are meant to have southern accents. I do very much like the way this narrator changes the voice when the voice is being heard through the phone.

love this book so much!

granted, this is not my favorite from the "jon's mysteries" series, but i still love it more than a good chunk of other books. good mystery, good romance, and gotta love jon and don for a multitude of reasons. narration was pretty good, not great. i didnt like that he phased in and out of accents so randomly. his voice reminded me of an old noir heavy smoking detective. still, the read was pretty good overall and i wouldnt hesitate to listen to this again.

Jon does it again!

I love this series about, psychics, finding friends, falling in love and catching the bad guys 💕 I will say that although the story is awesome, Lloyd Thomas does not due justice to it. The first book was read by Kenneth Obi. His voices and characters are far superior, so this was a bit disappointing from a listening perspective. Still a well written story overall.

Why the change?

I regreted the change of the narrator, took me a while to get used to the new guy. He didn't change his voice as much, so it was sometimes hard to discern who's who. The story was great, though, so no way I was putting this book away (though I've already read it and knew what was coming).

love this series

I truly enjoyed this second installment, this series is most enjoyable! Not only do I love Jon & Donovan, but the secondary characters are fun as well. I very much enjoyed the narration of this audio, the voices were perfect for each character and very distinctive. Looking forward to further takes from this duo.

Another Crazy Case

Another quirky mystery for Jon and Donovan to solve! I love these guys so much. They are so good together. Having already read the three books in this series so far, I have enjoyed hearing them come to life with the narration. Lloyd Thomas does a good job and puts just the right amount of TN Southern into these guys without going over the top. (I would know being a Middle TN girl myself. ) Very well done and a good follow up. Can't wait to hear the third one!!!!
