Publisher's Summary

Remember those people that destroyed the economy and then cruised off on their yachts? Well guess what? Someone is killing them.

Dublin is in the middle of a heat wave, and tempers are running high. The Celtic Tiger is well and truly dead, activists have taken over the headquarters of a failed bank, the trial of three unscrupulous property developers teeters on the brink of collapse, and in the midst of all this, along comes a mysterious organisation hell-bent on exacting bloody vengeance in the name of the little guy. 

Paul Mulchrone doesn’t care about any of this; he has problems of his own. His newly established detective agency is about to be DOA. One of his partners won’t talk to him for very good reasons, and the other has seemingly disappeared off the face of the earth for no reason at all. Can he hold it together long enough to figure out what Bunny McGarry’s colourful past has to do with his present absence? 

When the law and justice no longer mean the same thing, on which side will you stand? 

The Day That Never Comes is the second book in Caimh McDonnell’s Dublin Trilogy, which melds fast-paced action with a distinctly Irish acerbic wit.

Loved Volume 2 even more than Volume 1

I loved listening to this story. All of the characters are so wonderfully written and the various voices the narrator used were just about perfect. The author has such an ability to put humor into the scenes and the dialogue while at the same time providing the action and drama of a great story. I have fallen in love with Paul, Bridgit, Phil, Bunny and Maggie (a German shepherd). I can hardly wait for the third volume to come out!

This one needed an editor

I started with the prequel to this series which I loved so bought all 3 of The Dublin Trilogy at once. Book 1 was again a great fun adventure but The Day That Never Came needed a good editor to keep the story moving. Long explainers did not add depth or color so much as filling space that didn’t need filling. Love Bunny & company so fingers are crossed that Book 3 gets the original snappy focus back.

Wonderful New Series

Run, don't walk to download and listen to The Dublin Trilogy. Spoiler - there are actually four books in this Trilogy - which you'll be thrilled about because three just isn't enough. I can't recommend these books enough and am anxiously awaiting Caimh's next book - Audible HURRY UP! Narrator is terrific too.

Great story, great voice actor

I loved this book. So far it's the only book I've enjoyed more in Audible than when reading. The voice acting is something really special.

Outstanding Follow up

The book is imho better than the first. Morgan’s performance is incredible and greatly enhances the story over standard print. All the various characters really come alive thanks to him. Caimh writes some really interesting and quirky characters. I look forward to the renaming books in the series being available in audio.

Excellent follow up to the first book

Having gone straight to the second book from the first it was great to find out that, if anything, it was better. Characters were fleshed out further and amongst the horrors there were laugh out loud moments.

The narration is very good but just like the first book there are some very obvious edits cut in with different volume and tone that interrupt the flow for the listener. This is not enough to ruin the experience but seems incongruous to the overall quality of story and performance hence the missing star.

I shall be moving straight on to the 3rd book with eager anticipation.

Bunny Saves the Day

This is a great series of books with Bunny McGarry the stand out character and everyone else supporting him. In this novel Bunny has gone missing. That's the only reason I've left a star off - because I wanted more Bunny. Paul and Phil are like the son and his mate from Mrs Brown's Boys - a couple of irritating jokers who need to get their act together to be taken seriously. Next I'm going straight to the prequel 'Angels in the Moonlight' because that's all Bunny and I think it will set me up nicely for 'Last Orders'.

Absolutely fantastic story with loveable and enjoyable characters. Bonnie a particular highlight! Have to say, the combination of dark twisted humour and modern mystery is incredibly satisfying to read and listen to. Performance is brilliant too. Great 2nd of the trilogy and now looking forward to lsitening to book no 3.

Indescribable in a truly Bunny way.

How can I begin to describe this book! There are seriously dark moments, seriously funny moments and seriously Bunny moments that leave you with aching ribs. Awesomely read by Morgan Jones who makes every character uniquely individual and brilliant witty writing by Caimh McDonnell. Now off to get my next fix of this highly addictive set of Bunny and the gang.
