Glen Barber isn't the only person in the small town of Milford with things on his mind. The recession has been bad for his construction business, especially after a mysterious fire destroys one of his buildings. But everyone else in Milford seems to have problems too, as the financial pressures begin to pinch. Glen's troubles, however, are about to escalate to a whole new level.

Story had developed well but towards the end it was like how many more times will this guy arrive just in the knock if tone and how many ordeals can he find himself in in one day.

After the screen of a run-down drive-in movie theater collapses and kills four people, the daughter of one of the victims asks private investigator Cal Weaver to look into a recent break-in at her father's house. Cal discovers a hidden basement room where it's clear that salacious activities have taken place - as well as evidence of missing DVDs. But his investigation soon becomes more complicated when he realises the DVDs may contain something even more shocking.

Enjoyable listen to the initial book in the series. Characters further developed with good plot line and now enjoying the voices for each character. Building to a good finale.

Really wrecked the series by changing the narrator. After listening to the first 2 books in quick succession- I couldn't finish this one due to the annoying change of characters voices. And the girls voices were just plain pathetic. Will try one if his earlier stand alone books.
