After repo man Ruddy McCann begins hearing the voice of Alan Lottner, the father of Ruddy's crush, in his head, Alan tasks Ruddy with finding his murderers.

McMillan Palgrave

From W. Bruce Cameron, the author of the New York Times and USA Today bestselling novel A Dog's Purpose, which is now a major motion picture!

"The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man introduces my favorite kind of flawed cynical protagonist in Ruddy McCann, former football star, now Repo Man in a small town full of memorable weirdos. It's suspenseful, action-packed, romantic, and above all, truly funny. I loved it."—Nelson DeMille, New York Times bestselling author


Ruddy McCann, former college football star, has experienced a seismic drop in popularity; he is now Kalkaska, Michigan's full-time repo man and part-time bar bouncer. His best friend is his low-energy Basset hound Jake, with whom he shares a simple life of stealing cars.

Simple, that is, until Ruddy starts hearing a voice in his head.

The voice introduces himself as Alan Lottner, a dead realtor. Ruddy isn't sure if Alan is real, or if he's losing his mind. To complicate matters, it turns out Katie, the girl he's fallen for, is Alan's daughter.

When Alan demands Ruddy find his murderers, Ruddy decides a voice in your head seeking vengeance is best ignored. When Alan also demands he clean up his act, and apartment, Ruddy tells him to back off, but where can a voice in your head go?

With a sweet romance, a murder mystery, a lazy but loyal dog and a town full of cabin-fevered characters you can't help but love, New York Times bestselling novelist W. Bruce Cameron's The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man is yet another laugh-out-loud, keep-you-up-late, irresistible read.

Interesting characters in a small town in Michigan. Got involved with some sketchy events.
Will be looking for the next books to see how this continues develop.

I had forgotten about reading this book until I saw the follow up on our New Fiction Shelves last week. Thoroughly engaging read that left me wanting more. Happily, there is another title to this series now! If you enjoy a little absurdist comedy, this book will be well worth your time.

A cozy mystery that will leave you wanting more! Follow Ruddy as he tries to come to terms with the new voice in his head, the ghost of a dead Realtor. Even if you don't like "paranormal," you will find Cameron does a nice job of keeping the book realistic.

This was an easy read without having to think a lot. Hey, there are times when that's perfect. Funny, especially Kermit and the trash dumpster. You quickly learn Kermit will misinterpret whatever is said to him, or directions given - usually with a laughable outcome.
