This is book number 1 in the Ruddy McCann series.
This madcap romp through the not-so-scenic parts of Northern Michigan (a very beautiful and scenic part of the country for the most part) kept me laughing until the very end. W. Bruce Cameron does for our neck of the woods what Carl Hiaasen does for FL. If you live here, or you visit here, you must read this book! With luck it will be the first of many Ruddy McCann novels.— Jill
“This madcap romp through the not-so-scenic parts of northern Michigan -- a very beautiful and scenic part of the country for the most part -- will keep you laughing until the very last page. Let us hope that there are more Ruddy McCann adventures on the way as Cameron, the bestselling author of A Dog's Purpose and A Dog's Journey, could well become the 'Carl Hiaasen of the North'.”

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.
