This book is so much fun.
Ruddy McCann was an all star football player destined for greatness in the big leagues..then a bad thing happened and he ended up as a repo man and part time bouncer in his co-owner bar.
The man has some crap luck..between getting his arse kicked during a repo by a goose named Doris.


He starts hearing what at first he thinks is the stuffed bear in the bar's voice..........

As it turns out somehow a dead realtor named Alan has ended up in his head. Alan wants Ru...more

Funny characters and situations as repo man Ruddy McCann thinks he just might be going nuts when he’s suddenly hearing a voice in his head that no one else can hear. Eventually Alan tells him he was murdered and doesn’t know how he got in Ruddy’s body, but he can’t get out. Still, Ruddy would prefer to believe that the job has gotten to him instead of believing he’s possessed. Alan wants Ruddy to find the guys who killed him and bring them to justice. But just how does one explain all of this to...more

Thank you Shelf Awareness for my review copy.


W. Bruce Cameron garnered a following with his lively novels A Dog’s Purpose and A Dog’s Journey, and his latest novel, The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man, will appeal to those readers. Ruddy McCann, former Heisman Trophy winning football player, has settled back into his hometown as co-owner of The Black Bear bar and supplementing his income as a Repo man. McCann’s colorful boss Milt tells Ruddy he has the requisite “nerves of stupidity” to legally st...more

I received the ARC copy of this book from NetGalley to read and review. This is my 100% honest opinion.

Okay I know this is going to sound just plain wrong, but I saw this book and thought of it as a guys book. Not something I would normally pick up and read, but the story sounded interesting so I requested it.

I was not disappointed! This book had me smiling the whole way through it! It was funny, it wasn't out right obnoxious humor. Rather it was real and down to earth as if the character him...more

I was lucky enough to get an advance copy, have already read this one twice!

I truly hope there are more Ruddy McCann books in the works because this series could easily become a new addiction. This is a page-turning thriller with excitement, laughter and plot twists that will keep you guessing through every satisfying moment. As with all of W. Bruce Cameron's novels, the characters are funny, sincere and purely entertaining. As a huge fan of "A Dog's Purpose" I was really glad to see there was...more

I am a hardcore W. Bruce Cameron fan, I've read every book he's written I think, but (and I never would have said this could be true) I'm almost willing to say this one is my favorite!

This book is like no other, the whole idea that somebody who isn't crazy (or at least we think he isn't crazy) suddenly gets a voice in his head asking him to find his murderer, is just, so interesting and different that I couldn't wait to see what would happen.

So it's suspenseful, for sure, but then (and here's wh...more

Thank you to NetGalley and Forge Books for my Advanced Readers Copy of The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man by W. Bruce Cameron.

I LOVED this book. The writing was superb, the characters were memorable and the tone was quirky, innovative and laugh-out loud funny. I fully expect to see The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man on the big screen.
Ruddy McCann was on track for the good life. Popular and athletic, an NFL contract in his near future, life was smiling at him. Then an unfortunate event altered his...more

I picked up an advance reading copy at Book Expo in May after reading a glowing Publishers Weekly review,. The PW reviewer referred to this book as a slightly less zany Carl Hiaasen mystery, which is an apt description.

The repo man of the title is stuck in a vividly portrayed dead end small town in northern Michigan. He has a tragedy in his past, a glum sister who is running their parents' bar and a lazy but lovable dog. He also has a voice in his head who appears one day and introduces himself...more

Many thanks to NetGalley and Forge books for the ARC copy of The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man.

As a girl who grew up in Northern Michigan I was very intrigued by this book and its setting. I thought the premise was pretty unique and once I started reading I was hooked. I found the story humorous and intriguing at the same time, plus the added interest of being able to read about some of the places I have visited in my home state kept me turning the pages.

The story of the Ruddy McCann type hero...more

Ruddy was a star football player whose career was cut short. To make ends meet in the small town he grew up in he works as a repo man. Days flow by without much happening until one day Ruddy starts hearing a voice in his head. The voice of a man murdered 8 years ago. Can Ruddy solve the mystery before he goes crazy?

For fans of small town stories with quirky characters. Plenty of humor included with some nice noir touches. Comes out on October 28.

What do you get when you mix a former football star turned repo man, a lazy dog, the incredibly literal nephew of the repo man's boss, a best friend who's as naive as he is good looking, a restaurant called the Black Bear Bar, complete with--you guessed it--a bar and a stuffed black bear, a small but quirky Michigan town, and a voice in the repo man's head claiming to be a dead realtor named Alan who needs help finding his murderer? A delightfully entertaining novel not to be missed.
Lorie
I really enjoyed this book's colorful characters (some with their own minor subplots), and I enjoyed the overall mystery of the book. It wasn't really what I'd classify as a "nail-biter," but it had all of the right pieces to a) keep me wanting to read more and b) make a great movie. :-)
Gretchen
Very, very entertaining. The author seems to be a little Joe Hill and a little Harlan Coban. The story was unusual, intriguing, very funny and an enjoyable read. I shall be reading his other book now that I have been introduced to his style.
Cindy
Likable, funny characters made this a great mystery to read.

I’ve always loved dogs, which puts me in a unique category along with what, maybe two or three billion people?

What’s not to love about an animal who will sit in your living room all day long, waiting for you to get home, and even if you need to work late and then stop for a stress-relieving beverage on your way home, when you unlock that front door, is absolutely overjoyed to see you? How could yo...more
