Publisher's Summary

A woman dies in his arms...a drug dealer offers him $10,000...a gunman is determined to kill him. And then everything went to hell.

Shelby Alexander is an aging ex-boxer and retired fixer whose activities often flirted with the wrong side of the law. Looking for a little peace and a slower pace of life, he moved to Serenity, the small Michigan town where he grew up. But trouble follows men like Shelby, and he finds himself embroiled in an underworld of drugs and violence that may prove to be his undoing.

It seemed so simple: 10 grand to ask a few questions. He should have known money complicates everything, especially when the infamous Ellis family is involved, and when a small army of downstate dealers and a shadowy gunman all turn their sights on him, Shelby decides things have gone far enough. And he won't let the law stand in his way.

The first book in the new Shelby Alexander Thriller series, Serenity is an action-packed audiobook with a lovingly rendered cast, witty dialogue, and a main character who doesn't know when to quit.

    "Nice surprise"
    Any additional comments?

    A good little mystery, action-packed and with enough surprises to keep me on edge.
    The main character, Shelby Alexander, is suitably flawed and no longer entirely young but is an interesting guy who is likable and by no means a superman who handles everything perfectly. He is divorced with a 30-year old daughter who he was estranged from as a result from of a somewhat messy divorce from her mother. The relationship with the daughter is still not perfect, but it is getting better. He has a girlfriend who is 30 years his junior, that too causes complications. Not easy for a 60-year old former boxer with arthritis and other issues.
    But all in all, it made for a good story and I'm fairly certain I will be picking up the next volume in this series.

    it was an interesting if unmemoriable story. The ending.... just stopped, no finishing wrap up of the story.

    Story
    "A bit cliche but still good."

    Shelby is a retired divorced gentleman involved with a much younger woman. I really disliked his daughter. She was far too whiny but I liked Shelby OK. He finds himself involved in a mystery.

    There is a good bit of suspense in the story, enough to keep me entertained. The author builds character and the relationships of those characters. The pace is steady, building as the plot comes to finality.

    One of my favorite characters is Shelby's girlfriend. Loved her! I could see this being a very successful series based on the characters alone!

    "Surprises and laughter "

    I personally am not a huge fan of audible because I am picky with the voice. Once I geared into that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Suspense, surprises and I busted out laughing in various parts. Totally entertaining.

    "Great old school mystery novel"

    Old school mystery novel featuring a retired boxer. I like the hard-boiled, noir aspects, mixed with it being set in a rural setting, which brings a different twist.

    Good character development, which draws you into the story.

    Theo Holland does a very good job of bringing the story to life. His voice fits the main character perfectly.

    "Great!"
    Any additional comments?

    Serenity is my kind of book: short, brisk, and just a flat-out enjoyable read. Shelby Alexander is an ex-cop (amongst other things) who has retired to the small town of Serenity, Michigan. It doesn’t take long for trouble to rear its ugly head, and Shelby finds himself knee-deep in criminals, corrupt lawman, and murder. The story moves at a quick pace and doesn’t bog itself down in unnecessary detail or backstory. If I have one small criticism, it’s that Shelby’s girlfriend didn’t seem to add anything to the story, but there’s a good chance she’ll have a larger role in the books to come. A solid 4 stars!

    "Stilted"

    The narration of this story was choppy and stilted, as if the narrator were reading every word independently. The story had too many adjectives making it long and tiresome. I don't know why I continued to listen to the very end.

    "I had to struggle to finish..."

    I had to struggle to finish listening to this book. The narrator just was so monotone and it was hard to keep track of who was who because the lack of varition in his voice. Maybe it was just me. but I found it hard to listen to. The story was really good I think with a different narrator it probably could have been excellent.
