Summary

Remember those people that destroyed the economy and then cruised off on their yachts? Well guess what? Someone is killing them.

Dublin is in the middle of a heat wave, and tempers are running high. The Celtic Tiger is well and truly dead, activists have taken over the headquarters of a failed bank, the trial of three unscrupulous property developers teeters on the brink of collapse, and in the midst of all this, along comes a mysterious organisation hell-bent on exacting bloody vengeance in the name of the little guy. 

Paul Mulchrone doesn’t care about any of this; he has problems of his own. His newly established detective agency is about to be DOA. One of his partners won’t talk to him for very good reasons, and the other has seemingly disappeared off the face of the earth for no reason at all. Can he hold it together long enough to figure out what Bunny McGarry’s colourful past has to do with his present absence? 

When the law and justice no longer mean the same thing, on which side will you stand? 

The Day That Never Comes is the second book in Caimh McDonnell’s Dublin Trilogy, which melds fast-paced action with a distinctly Irish acerbic wit.

Great story, great voice actor

I loved this book. So far it's the only book I've enjoyed more in Audible than when reading. The voice acting is something really special.

Outstanding Follow up

The book is imho better than the first. Morgan’s performance is incredible and greatly enhances the story over standard print. All the various characters really come alive thanks to him. Caimh writes some really interesting and quirky characters. I look forward to the renaming books in the series being available in audio.

Excellent follow up to the first book

Having gone straight to the second book from the first it was great to find out that, if anything, it was better. Characters were fleshed out further and amongst the horrors there were laugh out loud moments.

The narration is very good but just like the first book there are some very obvious edits cut in with different volume and tone that interrupt the flow for the listener. This is not enough to ruin the experience but seems incongruous to the overall quality of story and performance hence the missing star.

I shall be moving straight on to the 3rd book with eager anticipation.

What a performance!

Caimh McDonnell has written another tightly plotted and humorous story set in Dublin. The locations are so well done that I expect to see Bunny McGarry bus tours.

Many times I laughed out loud. But the humour is not at the expense of the tension. Which builds through the story to a terrifying climax.

Morgan C. Jones is one of the best performers on Audible. I don't know why he is not better known. He certainly deserves to be on the basis of fantastic range of voices and emotions.

Why is Volume 3 not on Audible

This is a brilliant series and I have just finished the prequel but am dismayed to see that No 3 is not available. WHY WHY WHY???

Great story, great fun

This is actually better than the first in the series as it jumps straight into the action. Good solid thriller plot with sense of urgency and continues to be really funny series with interesting characters.

More please

Bliss. First book was wonderful and no. 2 has continued in the same vein. A wonderful array of characters superbly narrated. If you enjoy a caper and a chuckle then treat yourself.

Loved Volume 2 even more than Volume 1

I loved listening to this story. All of the characters are so wonderfully written and the various voices the narrator used were just about perfect. The author has such an ability to put humor into the scenes and the dialogue while at the same time providing the action and drama of a great story. I have fallen in love with Paul, Bridgit, Phil, Bunny and Maggie (a German shepherd). I can hardly wait for the third volume to come out!

Wonderful New Series

Run, don't walk to download and listen to The Dublin Trilogy. Spoiler - there are actually four books in this Trilogy - which you'll be thrilled about because three just isn't enough. I can't recommend these books enough and am anxiously awaiting Caimh's next book - Audible HURRY UP! Narrator is terrific too.
