Publisher's Summary

You don't lead a life full of action and close scrapes without making a few enemies. This is the hard lesson ex-boxer and retired fixer Shelby Alexander learns when he travels to his boyhood town in northern Michigan to "settle down". 

As it happens, the bad guys have other ideas.   

This explosive four-book collection is a roller-coaster ride filled with drama, innuendos, twists and turns, secrets, and betrayal, and a bombshell ending that will leave you spinning. 

Throughout this pulse-pounding series, Shelby faces enemies both old and new, relying on the skills he's learned over the years to stay alive and bring his own brand of vigilante justice to the bad guys. 

Full of blazing action, close calls, and memorable characters, the Shelby Alexander series is one you'll want to listen to, again and again.

Shelby Alexander Thriller Series Books 1-4

This box set is really good value, introduces you to the series, enjoyed the series and definitely want to read/listen to more. As you got to know the characters, you enjoyed the stories more. The narration was good.

Four Great Action Stories

Shelby Alexander is a former pro boxer, retired fixer and all-round tough guy who, along with his ex-Detroit sidekick Mac just can't seem to stay out of trouble of the dangerous and often deadly kind.
All four books are set in the small Michigan town of Serenity where Alexander has retired to fish and hunt and live out his sunset years, but Serenity isn't quite a suitable location for a guy like Shelby to settle and he isn't the kind of guy who can see injustice and not respond ... particularly when that injustice is aimed at people he knows and loves, so these stories are full of fisticuffs and gun play and just the kind of mayhem you'll love if you're a fan of vigilante justice of the ordinary hero type.
This collection gives you the first 4 stories in the series and house of listening enjoyment.

Engaging and funny, excellent interpretation

I was pleasantly surprised by the audiobook version of the Shelby Alexander stories, a couple of which I had already read as e-books. The excellent performance of the narrator highlights the positive traits of the books. The personality of Shelby Alexander, the protagonist, emerges in full, revealing a smart, spirited, generous, and wise individual. The dialogues are witty and often hilarious, especially where the interactions between Shelby and his best friend Mac are concerned. The casts of characters are rich and diverse so that each book is unique, and listening to all the four stories in a row is very enjoyable. I loved listening to this audiobook, and I look forward to reading or listening to more of Shelby Alexander's adventures soon.

Good Series & Narration

Serenity Stalked
Killer comes into Shelby’s area, and targets him. You don’t mess with Shelby or his girlfriend. A lot of blood and adventure to be able to clear himself. Given ARC audio also for my voluntary review review and my honest opinion
The narration is good by Theo Holland.
Serenity..Avenged
Shelby finds his ex wife has gotten mixed into trouble. Then with his daughter Leslie ready to deliver the grandchild. He is good at fixing, he would rather be with his daughter. Adventure and laughs await
Given ARC audio also for my voluntary review and my honest opinion Narration by Theo Holland is superb.
Serenity.Submerged
Not a favorite with the torture and cussing. Otherwise good plot, and action and murder and mystery to figure out. Narration by Theo Holland is good and bring the story to life. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

Narrator was meh...

The story line was entertaining, but the narrator sounded like a 5th grader doing a book report.

2 out of 4 isn't bad

My wife and I were ready to give this series a solid 4 star after the first 2 stories, but were glad we waited.
FYI we received this as a free promo so this is an unbiased opinion.

The first two books were good, even with the scenes better suited to the stage such as the dying cops monologue about leaving him behind. (VERY theatrical) We also wondered why the main character, and ex-pro boxer didn't know any dirty tricks. He kept complaining about arthritis but didn't use poor-man's brass-knuckles (a roll of coins)

The third story lost us. Aside from the problems with the daughter's pregnancy where the amount of blood the author described would've meant a miscarriage. (If it was only spotting, the child could have survived.) The description of the bad guy was better suited to a serial killer or drug dealer and the ex-wife came off as an entitled twat. We skipped to story 4 when my wife started rooting for the bad guy and demanding the ex's head.

As for story 4, it was just as disappointing, and I fell asleep.
