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 listen.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

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
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, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“A storyline that would be a car wreck in the hands of a less-talented writer turns out to be a delightfully entertaining road trip thanks to the deft touch of Cameron…This spirited novel, a rollicking mystery and sweet romance rolled into one, is the perfect vehicle for a wild joy ride.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“This offbeat and engaging mystery from humor writer Cameron introduces Ruddy McCann, a repo man in Kalkaska, Michigan, who’s also a bouncer and bartender…Ruddy gets involved in an awkward romance, crosses paths with some greedy bad guys, and puts his life at risk. Readers will look forward to more of Ruddy’s good-hearted efforts to protect those he loves in the promised sequel.” Publishers Weekly
“A highly engaging and funny novel that is reminiscent of the early works of Carl Hiaasen and Christopher Moore. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in Ruddy’s misadventures that readers may well finish the novel and only then realize that they’ve read it in one sitting.” Library Journal
“George K. Wilson’s narration enhances Cameron’s unique mystery…Wilson’s characterizations maintain each man’s distinct sound, never losing listeners during dialogue between the two. He also performs other characters—the daft stud, Ruddy’s dowdy sister, and the horny old man—with equal insight. Subtly capturing Ruddy’s character and the atmosphere of his backwoods town, Wilson intensifies the story’s humor and reserves his dramatic tone for the rare action scenes. The overall outcome is pure entertainment. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
