“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
“An appealing hero plus slick suspense and wry smiles: what more could you want?” ―Lee Child, New York Times bestselling author
“A joy to read! At once, original, absorbing, hilarious, gripping and emotionally satisfying. A deftly written, small town family chronicle wrapped in a laugh out loud premise, wrapped even tighter in a page-turning thriller. I marveled at every page!” ―Andrew Gross, NYT Bestselling author of No Way Back and Everything to Lose on Midnight Plan of the Repo Man--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Top Customer Reviews
I like everything about this book. The cast of characters are unique and fully developed, just odd enough to make them interesting and believable. The complicated plot plays out in such a way that it's not the least bit difficult to understand. Just as an example, we hear another person talking to Ruddy inside his mind and don't know how it got there for quite sometime. Ruddy thinks maybe he's finally gone crazy and the reader is treated to a play by play of their dialogue that is hilarious.
I can recommend this book to anyone who likes to read a good story and has a sense of humor. If you've never read Bruce Cameron's books, do yourself a favor and start with this one. If you like dogs, A Dogs Purpose, A Dogs Journey or his most recent book The Dog Master are all excellent.
The voice - who is it? What does it want?
Turns out, the voice has a name - Alan, and he's not any happier about the situation than Ruddy. As he astutely observes, "I'm a man trapped in a man's body."
This, of course, turns out to be something akin to having Felix Unger and Oscar Madison try to inhabit the same brain, and translates into pages and pages of merriment for the reader.
There are a lot of things going on here. Ruddy's suddenly trying to solve a murder, while figuring out who's sending bad checks to his feeble-minded buddy AND dealing with his sister's new beau's shady credit card scheme. The author manages to keep all plates deftly spinning, so three cheers for that.
My favorite bits were the repos and even more, the attempted repos. As Ruddy puts it, being a repo man requires "nerves of stupidity", and that is well demonstrated here. One repo turns into a repeated gag which had one of THE BEST conclusions EVER. It also provided the BEST LAUGH I've had in ages!
Oh, yeah - there's also a lovable elderly dog (who doesn't die!)
Paws down, this is a winner.
