The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man

We rated this book:


What if you started hearing voices? Or rather, a single voice? And, what if that voice called himself Alan, and said he had been murdered and needed you to help him find justice? This is the premise of The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man, in which big-hearted, big-boned repo man, Ruddy McCann, finds himself miraculously channeling the dead. Or, just a single dead person.

The wacky premise works because the mystery stays lighthearted, adding a cast of cheeky characters to the creative plot. When Ruddy isn’t stealing back cars from their owners, he’s bouncing at his family’s bar, the Black Bear, where all the locals in his small Michigan town gravitate. The regulars there take the news of Ruddy’s repo madness much better than the local law enforcement. New knowledge in the local unsolved murder case brings Ruddy more unwanted attention than he expected.

The story often turns hilarious, thanks to Ruddy’s reluctant role as repo man-turned-sleuth. Bells and whistles aside, The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man is a fast-paced, well-plotted mystery.
