Publisher's Summary

The fourth novel in the next great detective series.

Grady Huff, a wealthy and insufferable pain in the neck, killed his cleaning lady and confessed to the crime. No jury in the world could find him innocent and no amount of money can convince Mackenzie August to work for his defense. That is, until Veronica Summer's fiancé arrives in Roanoke and joins the prosecution... 

Darren Robbins has more on his mind than just convicting Grady - he's come to collect Veronica. And he's come to settle things with Mackenzie, a reckoning that will certainly spill violence into the streets.

Listen to Aces Full today, the fourth book in your favorite mystery series.

The book was spot on.

I have become a huge fan of this series of books. This is no exception. It is everything I have come to expect. I can't wait for the next in the series to be released.

Great

I love Mackenzie August! The story is entertaining. It kept my attention the entire story. Plenty of action with some sarcastic humor. Scott Ellis did a fantastic job with the narration.

Read the earlier books first.

The entire time I listened to this book, I kept thinking how anyone who had not listened to the earlier books will be so lost. Mackenzie August has a circle of friends, some enemies, a love interest, and a child that you need to know the prior history of before you can fully appreciate what happens in this listen. If you didn't know Kicks, Mac's son, was a two year old, the conversations Mac has with him won't resonate (since Kicks sounds like a middle schooler in Mac's head.) And Marcus. Marcus played a huge part in how all the crazy gets resolved but who he is and what relationship Mac has with Marcus' kid is never explained. I liked the story but I knew the story. Seriously, don't start with this book.

Mackenzie August is such a smart a$$

I got some good laughs listening to this book. Mackenzie is such a smart ass that he made me laugh out loud a couple times. Alan Lee obviously has a great sense of humor! Don't get me wrong, the subject matter of this book is serious but Mackenzie is so calm and joking at inappropriate times it catches me off guard. I love that! I listened to book one and then book 4 without having 2 and 3. I felt like I missed a few things between the two books but not to the point that I was lost. This would have been fine to listen to even if I hadn't had any of the previous books. The story was good and held my attention all the way through, building up to a good ending. Scott Ellis was excellent. He gave an impressive performance with all the different voices for the various characters. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Great listen for a classic genre

Loved this listen. Great old fashion classic but with more humour. The characters are enjoyable. The story is interesting and keeps you listening. Love the ending. Need to listen to more.

Humorous and quirky

This mystery is just as humorous and quirky as the previous books in this series -- maybe a little too quirky. It requires a bit more suspension of disbelief. The characters are great, though, and Scott Ellis has really made these characters his. His performance is outstanding.

Note: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

" Guys like me..."

Private detective Mackenzie August navigates his way through drug dealers and sex workers, plus their gang bosses, with humour and panache well beyond this mere mortal's imagination, and is hired to save an offensive, oafish rich bore from the death penalty for a murder to which he has readily admitted. Written in the first person throughout, Mackenzie is moralistic in his own way, funny, conceited, slick talking and very capable, surrounded by colourful characters, swooned over by women, especially one, admired or hated by men on both sides of the law, and extremely good at what he does. He even has Pex, the child with whom he can bounce imaginary conversations and feelings.

Why has it taken me so long to discover Alan Lee? The author has, through this book, shot right to the top of my just read detective writers. And in Scott Ellis, Mackenzie has the perfect voice as narrator: always smooth, a pleasure to listen to, with fine intonation, individual and appropriate voicings and pace perfect. Mr.Ellis becomes August, the PI in an excellent performance.The

I was so very fortunate in being freely gifted with a complimentary copy of Aces Full, the 4th in the Mackenzie August series, by the rights holder at my request. Thank you so much. I loved it and am now looking to embark on a catch up of the earlier books in the series. For anyone who enjoys the whole private detective genre, especially those with great writing, witty dialogue, excellent and compelling scenarios, fabulous characters who, nevertheless seem to ring true and, in audio, superb narration - look no further. This is the book for you.

Mac is always the joker!

Mackenzie August, wisecracking PI and self-professed hunk, gives and takes more beatings as he investigates a fatal shooting where the killer has confessed. He also wants to help the glamorous Veronica Summers extricate herself from her fiancé - not for personal reasons, of course! These really are fun books, I love Mac’s enlightened approach, his use of big words to annoy the baddies, his conversations with his toddler, and his care and concern for those around him. 🎧 Scott Ellis deftly manages the humour and thesaurus required to narrate these novels - he multiplies the fun factor.
