Was it suicide, or was Tom Sattler murdered? If so, by whom and why? The search for answers plunges Harry into a far-reaching investigation that involves murder, corruption, organized crime, and duplicity. As always, there’s a twist in the tail. ----- My take.... My second outing with Blair Howard and his PI, Harry Starke after previously reading the series opener, the somewhat imaginatively titled - Harry Starke. Here we have a suspicious death of a former friend and the subsequent fall-out, including Starke's investigation which involves him working with his on/off girlgriend, Kate - a cop - and his own team. Further deaths occur, with the possible motives including money and family reasons. The intial victim, Tom Sattler is a financial trader in a partnership with three others and responsible for millions of dollars of investor's money. The fund is underperforming and the partners are under pressure. One of the investors is laundering mob money. Either shortly before or after the death, an insider with access to account details has ghosted the account funds, all $350m into the ether i.e. an untraceable account somewhere else. I quite enjoyed it without ever feeling stunned or amazed by events. It was interesting insofar as there were several possible suspects for the nefarious goings on and several reasons why. I was curious to find out what happened without really feeling invested in the outcome. Along the way Harry and Kate kind of resume their relationship. Harry, also manages to get horizontal and dirty dance with another beautiful woman - a press journalist with an interest in events. On occasions Harry gets to show how tough he is. Here it's standing up to the mobster and his goons One thing does kind of strike me as slightly improbable, but maybe I'm being picky. Starke runs an office and has employees. Presumably he has overheads and bills and his staff would like to get paid? In the two books I've read, him and his team to a greater or lesser extent devote hours to investigating stuff without ever doing any paid work, to the best of my recollections. Oh yeah, I forgot. It's fiction and you make stuff up and you suspend disbelief and buy into whatever the author is trying to sell you, if you wanna have a good time. Silly me. The paid work is the stuff that Harry does inbetween times and that Howard doesn't put in his books. Blair Howard's writing style is smooth, with no real awkwardness to it. There a flow to the story and its kind of easy listening. There's nothing standout that makes you go wow and rewind though for another listen. I think an Audible format is perfect for me to devour these books as they aren't overly complex or convoluted. I might enjoy them less if I was accessing them via the printed page. Maybe listening to a book while working is a bit of a win/win situation. Blair Howard has written over a dozen Harry Starke books and I have most of them in my Audible library, so I'll continue to listen for a few more yet. 3 from 5 Read - (listened to) January, 2021 Published - 2015 Page count - 282 (8 hrs 23 mins) Source - Audible purchase Format - Audible http://col2910.blogspot.com/2021/02/b...

    I bought these first 3 books in a bundle on my kindle. The first book was okay as a quick read murder mystery. This second book is the same. However, I began disliking Harry Starke in the second book. He's apparently a young soul who has not evolved himself beyond his current state, which is more like a teenager. He has not gotten beyond seeing only appearances in people rather than seeing who they really are. He especially judges women according to how beautiful they are, or not.

His description of one woman, in particular, really turned me off. These books are full of descriptions of clothing and how far up the knee the skirt is cut or the name brand of Harry's shoes. I find this disgusting. Harry Starke is not a man I would like. He reminded me of Donald Trump in his attitude toward women. I stuck it out and read all three of these as pure entertainment and just because I really hate quitting something I've started, if I can help myself. However, I will not be purchasing any more of this author's books.

    This was a solid 3.5 stars raised to a 4. Stark and Kate investigate the apparent suicide of a financial advisor that is later determined to be a murder by the coroner. It is a procedural and is really well done. The ending was somewhat unexpected for reasons that will be obvious to the reader. The distractions that led to a lower star rating (I am a fan) were his Stone Barringtonish escapades with the three women in his life. Telling more of the plot would lead to spoilers.

    For book 2 of the Harry Starke series, Harry is back to his old tricks...so speak, alongside his ever loyal buddy and long-time on-again, off-again girlfriend Kate Gazzara, one of several smoking-hot women who can't seem to resist his mysterious charms. Harry is an ex-cop who owns his own PI agency, has a dry sense of humor, and very expensive tastes in food, booze and clothes.

Harry is an ex-cop who owns his own PI agency, has a dry sense of humor, and very expensive tastes in food, booze and clothes. He is also, apparently, like catnip to the many women in his world--including Kate (although she is the one who does the best job resisting him for the most part), Amanda the red-headed bombshell local TV reporter, Linda the sexually open-minded Senator, and even Jessica, an rich widow with a penchant for exhibitionism and who is a person of interest in the mystery at hand. I've compared Harry to another favorite in the series thriller world--Jack Reacher, Lee Child's ex (or not, depending on which book you grab first) MP, whose adventures are all fairly widespread, geographically speaking. Both Jack and Harry are ladies' men but the thing that makes the Starke series more appealing to me is that, while Harry's background seems to keep lurching up and biting him on the butt, at least relationship-wise, he stays in one place (Chattanooga, Tennessee) and lives his life, running his PI business. I've said before that I prefer my novels, no matter the genre, to contain characters of three-dimensions with rich casts of supporting types who further the story and the main character's evolution. You get that with this second novel. The mystery--a fairly straight-forward murder disguised as suicide--has a bad-guy banker's financial motive, served up with side of hidden dirty family secret and the mob--a theme that will repeat itself (since I read these books out of order and already know what happens in book 3, Hill House). There is a pleasantly realistic build-up to the big reveal, the bad guys are caught, and then Harry resumes messing up his love life. Each of the first 2 books are completely stand alone and contain no cliffhangers so you could read one and move along, but Harry is such an enigma--a seemingly simple dude with some extraordinary skills being a bad ass, who can't sort out which end is up when it comes to the many women in his life and that makes this series deliciously compelling.

    Was free.... Whole book is about who killed his friend and who has the money. Harry Starke says he is expensive but for this three weeks of work how did he get paid? Only thing he has in his mind is sex. Looks like only investigations his firm is doing is this job, nothing else. Daily meetings with his stuff includes a TV reporter and homicide investigator. And yes he goes to bed with both of them.

    Book 1: I got this book as part of the first 3 books and then bought the audible version. I started reading and got hooked on Harry’s totally laid back attitude about his job and his long time relationship with Lt. Kate Gazarra. I enjoyed the text version but not so much the audible version. The narrator is probably excellent at his job and he does a fair southern accent but it grates on me and I find myself getting irritated at his narration.

I enjoyed the text version but not so much the audible version. The narrator is probably excellent at his job and he does a fair southern accent but it grates on me and I find myself getting irritated at his narration. It is me and I apologize because the story is excellent. Harry is a PI in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and is tight with Lt. Kate Gazarra, both on the job and after hours. They have been ‘friends with benefits for ten years’ and it has worked. But, then Harry happens to be on the bridge when a beautiful young woman jumps off right in front of him. So close that he grabs her hands and she just lets her coat slide off. The reason for her apparent suicide haunts him and he wants to find out why she was so terrified that she jumped. The story is about a wealthy congressman who has set up an organization to attract the wealthy of Chattanooga and Washington, DC, so he can blackmail them and become stronger in his political seat. Like all good PI stories, there are beautiful women, lots of corrupt men (could be women but in this case it is men) and Harry and Kate, the good guys saving the day. I like the casual way the author writes his stories and will keep reading his books. Book 2: Two for the Money. After not liking the narrator, Tom Landon, I find that he grew on me and I find him doing a good job. Book 2 is about a suicide or is it murder of Tom Sattler, head of a hedge fund, who is also an acquaintance of Starke’s from his younger days. There are many suspects as to who stole the money and who killed the Sattler but none of them seem fit. Could the two things be unrelated? Detective Kate Gazarra and Starke join forces to find the answers. It is a fast story and lots of red herrings appear including a truly bad guy who has his money stolen but claims he has nothing to do with Sattler’s death. Blair Howard writes a good novel, maybe a little heavy on the swear words but it is a detective story after all. Book 3 is up next.

    If you can accept that all these "stunning" women are throwing themselves at Harry, and that Harry likes to bully the creeps and criminals, then you'll probably like this well-paced who-done-it. It's a rather formulaic mystery with a surprising, but satisfying end. Tom Lennon delivers another excellent performance in this second audiobook of the series.

    Harry has another adventure as his relationship with Kate has cooled and he gets involved with the TV journalist he has hated. This is one of those stories where you can never figure out who is the perp, and there is a good reason for that. The author is a little light on descriptions, but the characters are all very realistic and the action is handled well without becoming gory. This book is good entertainment without being too demanding.

    Good stories; Immature main character Depicting admiration for a male character who treats women like trash went out 50 years ago and it is surprising to find it in a contemporary novel. The mystery stories are well done and minor male personalities are well presented. The Harry Starke character is so emotionally immature, he has no business with a firearms license. I will not continue reading the series.

    Another great Harry Starke book Blair Howard has done it again, another great book with lots of twists and turns. Harry Starke is a PI who works with his old police partner, Kate Gazzara. He is drawn into a murder investigation when an old friend calls him in a panic and he finds him dead. Family, girlfriend, investment partners and investors are all suspects. There is a lot of stolen money and few clues. I really enjoyed trying to figure it out.

    A phone call from an old acquaintance leads Harry to unravel a mystery involving murder, child abuse and an embezzling scam involving big money in this Harry Starke PI story. This is the second story in a great series but it works just as well as a stand alone. I love the character of Harry Starke. He's the kind of hard boiled, smart mouthed, womanizing PI that would have gotten along well with the great P.I.s of pulp fiction. A great read.

    Good While this was a good mystery,it also moved slowly at times . Overall this was a decent mystery with some sexiness thrown in to make it interesting. There are also times when you not only smile but you laugh out loud.The hero of the story is definitely the star and you are going to be drawn to him. There are going to be times when you see that the writer has fleshed this character and you like him. Overall you are going to like this story.

    98-2019. Breezy mystery with Harry Starke and his friends. I’m a little weary that all of the women in Harry’s life are goddesses of some sort, and ready to roll with him James Bond style at all times. But, the mystery was very good, and bad guys get caught in the end. Some mayhem. Some gunplay. Not a bad way to spend a day or two flying through it.

    Great second book in this series Harry Starke is an interesting and entertaining protagonist. His adventures are well-constructed and cohesive. The entire series is a wonderful mix of locales and characters. This book is engrossing and leaves you wanting the next mystery in Tennessee. I highly recommend this author.

    Two For the Money is an entertaining murder mystery with a complicated protagonist detective and quite a few twists and turns. This is the second book on the series that I’ve read, and they are both good books. I don’t think Mr Starke and I would get along in real life though- honestly he seems like a real jerk.
