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!

Terrific book - Pay attention to the dates

After thoroughly enjoying A Man with One of Those Faces, I jumped right into the second volume of The Dublin Trilogy and was not disappointed. The plot and characters are very engaging and fun. However, I did get a little confused because I wasn't paying attention to the dates of certain sections. (My bad.) If you enjoyed the first book in the trilogy, you have just as much fun with the sequel.

A very enjoyable read. Bunny is the best.

1st quarter is slow and confusing, figuring who's who. After that, it's awesome tothe end.

Love this author!

Got sucked into ‘The Stranger Times’, and then quickly found it’s only his most recent book. The Dublin trilogy so far is amazing. I love the humor, the wider world views smuggled into prosaic sentences, peeks of Sir Terry. All of it! Give it a shot if you’re on the fence-you won’t b disappointed!

Needed More Bunny!

A very enjoyable audio book, and the performance was great. However, I'm missing Bunny in the last two books.
It needs more cowbell, or in this case Bunny.

Another fun ride

This series is such a delight. I just know I’m gonna plow right through all of them. They do stand alone, but it’s best to start at the beginning for full enjoyment.

Love this author and reader

This is my second book from this author and reader pairing. The story is fun and the reader does a superb job of bringing it to life. I laughed so much. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes detective type stories and a good laugh.

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'.

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 again…

…from Messrs McDonnell and Jones. These first two of six in The Dublin Trilogy (not a typo) are clever and entertaining, well worth listening to. Morgan Jones’ narration adds to the entertainment value no end. Roll on the next in the series.

Great book with the perfect narrator

It’s not often that a great book is graced with the perfect narrator. This book is that rare beast and is therefore a fantastic listen. Another reviewer commented that you could forget the plot and listen for the characters and dialogue alone - true, but the plots are good too.

Only two books in and looking forward to the rest of the series.

Brilliant, dark in places but laugh out loud funny.

Been hooked on the books since the summer. Working my way through The Dublin and McGarry Stateside series on audible - this is one of my favourites, darker than some. Caimh McDonnell has created an alternate universe, rather like the late lamented Terry Pratchett, where while bad stuff still happens, the really bad guys satisfyingly tend to get their comeuppance, at the hands of the most unlikely of avenging angels, an overweight, heavy-drinking, hurley-mad, wonky-eyed man from Cork and a cast of other, equally loveable misfits. I don’t think I’ve ever “read” so many books by an author solely in audiobook form, but Morgan C Jones narration is so brilliant, it definitely adds a dimension to the ultra-sharp writing. For the non-Irish who wouldn’t have known a Cork accent if it bit them on the bum, Bunny’s delivery, as voiced in the audiobooks, really brings the lines to life. No longer need to cast around for something to spend my audible credits on - I’m hoping Mr McDonnell’s impressive rate of quality writing (the man is a machine) and audio book conversion can keep up. Check out his website if you enjoy this - there’s a newsletter, free short stories in audio and written form and a couple of great podcasts. Keep me going between my monthly Bunny fix. I know I could buy an extra credit but I’m trying to eke them out, will be slight bereft when I finish the series - never mind I can start on the C K McDonnell Stranger Times books. Satisfying, funny and strangely comforting reads for our uncertain times.

Terrible voice acting. Brilliant story.

The character voices are awful. Thankfully the story is good enough to help you ignore it. Initially the accents were so bad I nearly stopped listening but I ended up laughing at them - kind of becoming so bad it was funny. The story was compelling and fun. I read the first in the series…. I’ll definitely read the next one.
