Secondhand Smoke (Jake Brand PI 2) is now available as an audiobook! Over 7 hours of danger, twists, turns and smart alec repartee are now available to vastly improve some of the more hum drum parts of your life. (Ok, well some people actually like working out but even so, a rollicking good story with thrills, laughs and a touch of romance is going to level up a workout from “like” to “love” right?)
Secondhand Smoke by M. Louis, narrated by Colin Iago McCarthy
Audible / Amazon / iTunes
Set on the espresso stained streets of Portland, a simple missing person case is just the beginning of a trail of danger & intrigue.
In the midst of peril, Private Detective Jake Brand still finds time to annoy his yoga instructor, and fall for the woman with more secrets than answers.
“…endlessly entertaining in any situation, especially the perilous kind.” -Kirkus

We are totally pumped about the first review of the audiobook version of Angel’s Devil from AudiobookReviewer.com!
4 stars! Yay!
“M. Louis does an excellent job of making Jake likable by adding in Jake’s devil and angel side-kicks. . . .
The story flows well, keeping the listeners on their toes. Fast paced but not rushed, Louis reveals just enough keeping the action riveting. Masterful story-teller, Louis keeps the listener on the edge of his seat.
Colin Iago McCarthy is a wonderful narrator, keeping the action and emotions steady and peaking when it is. . . . ”
