Publisher's Summary

This short story introduces former college football star turned repo man Ruddy McCann, star of W. Bruce Cameron’s new novel The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man, and tells how Ruddy met his best friend Jake, a lazy but lovable basset hound, during a repo gone wrong. Full of laugh-out-loud humor and thrilling adventure, "The Midnight Dog of the Repo Man" is an enthralling, delightful short story by the author of the New York Times and USA Today best-selling A Dog’s Purpose, A Dog’s Journey, and The Dogs of Christmas that shows us that unconditional love is just a tail wag away and can happen upon us when we least expect it.

Cute short story!

This one hour story of the repo man getting his dog is cute, but insubstantial. Narration is excellent.

I crave for more in this wonderful series...

Well, if you can call it a series. This is a short story sequel of the incredible book, The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man. That novel is one of the funniest and clever novels on Audible.

George K Wilson is the perfect narrator for this story. He has the gift of timing, with a flair for capturing the irony within the story.

This story is as fun as the novel, only it left me panting for more. Soon!

I really enjoyed this book!

Any additional comments?

This was a fun easy going listen. I loved the relationship between the Ruddy and Alan. Even though the cast is vast, its easy to keep up with who is who and just as easy to become invested those characters. George K. Wilson ROCKS! Seriously one of the absolute best. He gives distinction and life to every single character, be they old, young, male or female ....or a dog. I laughed out loud more than once and found myself sitting in the driveway just to finish a part. I hope Bruce Cameron writes 20 more Repo Man books!

Good, but very short story

Just as I was getting into the story, it was over. I was expecting more for my money.

An Explanation.

Really didn't care for the story. Didn't understand the point of the story. This could have been included the original novel.

Great series.

I listened to the Midnight Plan of the Repo man and loved it. Book 2 was also good, but not as good as the first. It has been a few years since I listened to the Midnight Plan of the Repo Man, and I saw this short story and decided to give it a try. Now I remember why I liked these books so much. This is one of the best short stories I have read or listened to. I wish there were more books to the series.

Fun Short Prequel

How Ruddy got the dog. This short prequel to The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man and its ongoing series introduces Ruddy McCann and his job as a repo man and bar bouncer in the Michigan Northwoods, and shows us how his basset hound Jake came into his life. Of course there has to be a dog, this being Bruce Cameron, author of A Dog's Purpose. Succinct, to the point, and fun.

One of the best

in the genre! Love the characters and wonderful twisty mystery wrapped in subtle humor! So well read! I have re-read the first 3 in this series multiple times and can't wait for the next!! The MC's and whole town is a delight and I haven't called the ending yet:) Well worth the credit ... I check for new installments every month.

well worth the price

Cameron's other two (with more to come I dearly hope) books in this series are fantastic. And I was asking myself, so where did this fabulous hound dog come from? Here's the very nice story of just that.
I especially enjoyed book two which I just finished. Book two, Repo Madness, is read by a superior (IMHO) narrator. I prefer the plot and pace of it too. I do think you can read Repo Madness without reading the first in the series. You wouldn't be confused at all but you'd be missing out on a few things. similarly with this short piece.

I love this series

I have read all 3 Repo Man books. They are great. I hope there will be another one. I like the characters, the family. The stories are interesting, and I like the concept of Ruddy's fiance's father inhabiting his head. Nicely written.
