Thanks go out to John L., who recently posted this review on Bookbub of "Pat Ruger: For Hire":
I loved the quirky and fun banter...
"After reading and reviewing a later book in the Pat Ruger series by Jack Huber, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this first book and finding out how P A L detective agency and Pat Ruger came into being. I also enjoyed the quirky and fun banter between the main characters as they faced a myriad of cases with different clients all while searching for the solution to the major case, the missing person case that started the book. The characters are entertaining and slightly unpolished which makes them even more human to the reader. And, of course, with any private detective, there are women involved, and possibly one of them leading to a real romantic love interest. Looking forward to reading the next books in this series. This is a voluntary review of an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from Hidden Gems Books."
