British Author Ken McCoy is a man of many talents. After 25 years as a builder, he turned to writing thrillers. LOSER is his fourth "Mad" Sam Carew novel, and he narrates it as well—very credibly. Sam is called upon to find the killer of a lawyer who was bludgeoned to death with a golf club. One of the victim's golf buddies is arrested for the murder. No Carew novel is without its subplots, and in this one there's an attack on Sam and an issue about the safekeeping of a Dutch Master painting. McCoy's heavy British accent, which he sometimes gives a rough sound, is perfect for many of the characters. He's got his voices down pat, and his tempo is that of an experienced narrator.
