Summary

Dorothy Graham is dead, which is inconvenient, not least for her. Luckily, she has planned for this eventuality. Now, if any of the truly dreadful people she is related to want to get their hands on her money, they’re going to have to do so via a fiendish difficult and frankly bizarre competition of Dorothy’s devising. After all, just because you’re dead, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a last laugh at the expense of people who made your life miserable.

Paul Mulchrone, to his unending credit, is neither related to Dorothy or happy that she is dead; What he is however is a contestant in this competition whether he likes it or not, which he definitely doesn’t. He and his off-again on-again girlfriend, the formidable Brigit, are supposed to be running MCM Investigations, a detective agency. Instead, they have to go into battle against Dorothy’s bloodsucking relatives. As if that wasn’t enough, they get hired by the aforementioned dead woman to find out who killed her.

DI Jimmy Stewart is enjoying his retirement - in the sense that he definitely isn’t. He is bored out of his mind. When the offer comes to get back into the crime solving business, it is too good to turn down. But when he finds himself teamed up with the nephew of a man he threw in prison, and a flatulent dog, he starts to think that taking up lawn bowls wouldn't be such a bad idea after all.

The Final Game is a stand-alone crime novel perfect for listeners new to Caimh McDonnell’s blackly comic take on his hometown, as featured in the international best-selling Dublin Trilogy books. His previous works have been optioned for TV and nominated for awards, which they somehow keep managing not to win.

Great story …. But

Terry Trainer is starting to sound like Bunny, think again there’s only one Bunny and it’s certainly not that idiot. Otherwise great story and Dorothy Rocks 🪨 the game was both awful and hysterical .

Caimh and Morgan do it again!

I really enjoy all Caimhs books but this for me was the funniest. One chapter had me laughing so much I had to keep rewinding it because I missed what was being said!
I was a little worried at first that there was no Bunny in it, but it didn't matter. Great story, brilliant narration.

Just when you think it cannot get better…

These books just go from strength to strength.
I love them. The characters- well how can you not love them.
I’d like more time to read a book but audio books fit my lifestyle so much better. Cannot wait for the latest Bunny McGarry to be available via audio too.

Thank you

Well in these dire days it has been pure joy to listen to another instalment of MCM investigations. There were several proper laugh out load moments. Please please let there be more.

One of the best

What should be a 'nothing filler' is - if you've read the rest of the Bunnyverse - is literally one of the best. It kind of answers the questions. Such fun!

Farewell Dorothy

A fitting farewell to the "mucking" legend that was Dorothy. Another corker from Caimh McDonnell

Absolutely brilliant

The story is great. The characters, I love them. The narrator is just right. I’ve listen to them all now and can’t wait for more.

Great listen!

I love Caimh McDonnell’s books and this was no exception .It is a stand alone book but also wraps up Paul Mulchrone’s story which started in “The Man with one of those Faces” in the Dublin Trilogy . This book was funny and beautifully narrated by Morgan C Jones, who’s regional Irish accents were spot for on . If you are looking for something to cheer you up during lockdown this is it ! a funny crime caper .
