Publisher's Summary

Buck Reilly wants only three things out of life: A plane to fly, a treasure to find, and a beautiful woman to rescue. He’ll get his chance at all three in the first of John H. Cunningham’s thriller series, Red Right Return. Set against the stunning scenery and freaky fabulousness of the Florida Keys, Cunningham joins the ranks of Carl Hiaasen, Randy Wayne White, and Papa himself in a rich new series for thrill seekers everywhere. 

But Buck Reilly’s no ordinary hero. A product of his times and ours, too, he’s laying low and trying to fly under the radar in the aftermath of economic catastrophe. Back in his bad old days on Wall Street, Buck ran e-Antiquity, plundering the world’s treasures, (and a few of his investors’ pockets) for some pretty handsome profit. He wasn’t a bad guy back then, he just didn’t know any better. But life turned ugly when the market crashed, the company cratered, and the FBI investigated the bankruptcy. When his marriage ended and his parents were killed in a car crash, Buck found out for certain that business wasn’t just business anymore.

These days, Buck’s a lot like the rest of us - trying to make ends meet and hoping for better times. He operates Last Resort Charter and Salvage, flying a 1946 amphibious Grumman Widgeon, hunting for sunken treasure and taking on an occasional passenger, no questions asked. But when he faces down the dark forces of Santero priests, the underbelly of the Havana underworld and a pissed-off FBI agent, Buck has nothing but ingenuity, guts and his ancient flying boat to save his skin, and the lives he put in peril.

Buck Reilly’s fall from grace, and comeback

Buck Reilly went from successful business owner, to laying low, looking for his next paycheck. This book has so much going on and so many players, that you just never know what is going to happen next. I can’t wait for the next one.

Narrator needs to be changed

I listened to this audio book after listening to Graceless. The section of Graceless written by John Cunningham was narrated by Nick Sullivan who did an amazing job. Kyle Tait did such a poor job of narration I could not complete this audio book. I will go to the library and check out books 2 through 7. John Cunningham, if you are reading this review, please hire Nick Sullivan to do the rest of your books. I look forward to listening to your book 8, narrated by Nick Sullivan!

A fun listen

I was recently introduced to John H. Cunningham's work and his character, Buck Reilly, in 'Graceless', which was written by four different authors. Buck sounded like an interesting character, so I had to check him out! This was definitely a fun listen. Great narration by Kyle Tait! I'd love to listen to more of this series!

Narrator

narrator was boring and lacked excitment. The story line is exciting but a better more energetic reading would have assisted the story.

Great Story, it has potential

I loved the story, but I did not find the narrator funny. He droned on and on with no tone change. The accents were ok. I listen at night when I go to bed, usually I have to force myself to turn it off. I just couldn't stay awake, I set the timer and end up missing the whole hour. Also I just didn't see humor.

Narration is clipped and sounds robotic.

Story is good and I would continue with series but the narration is tough to listen too. It sounds clipped and robotic.

Disappointed in the narration

Seemed like a good story with a likable protagonist, but I couldn't finish it because of the robotic narration. I returned the book for that reason. The narrator has a good speaking voice as to enunciation and tone, but his delivery was very choppy, i.e., phrases delivered in a robotic and rhythmic manner, consisting of only a few words per phrase before abruptly pausing between each phrase instead reading in a more natural, flowing manner. I felt that he also also read in a monotone with little expression. His narration style was so distracting that I really couldn't enjoy the book.
