A tomcat, a psychopath, and a psychic walk into the desert to rescue the men they love.... Can everybody make it out with their skin intact?
PI Jackson Rivers and Defense Attorney Ellery Cramer have barely recovered from last November, when stopping a serial killer nearly destroyed Jackson in both body and spirit. But their previous investigation poked a new danger with a stick, forcing Jackson and Ellery to leave town, so they can meet the snake in its den.
Jackson Rivers grew up with the mean streets as a classroom, and he learned a long time ago not to give a damn about his own life. But he gets a whole new education when the enemy takes Ellery. The man who pulled his shattered pieces from darkness and stitched them back together again is in trouble, and Jackson’s only chance to save him rests in the hands of fragile allies he barely knows.
It’s going to take a little bit of luck to get these Few Good Fish out alive!

Action packed thriller/romance.
A Few Good Fish is the third audiobook in the Fish Out of Water series by Amy Lane. It continues on from the previous novels in the series which should really be listened to in order. Amy Lane does smoothly include relevant snippets of events from the previous novels to make sure new listeners aren’t confused, however these stories are so riveting and well written that it would do this one an injustice to listen to it as a stand-alone.
Ellery Cramer is criminal defence attorney in one of the top law firms in Sacramento. On the advice of his high flying, slightly controlling, corporate lawyer mother he is forging a career that will pay very well and set him up for life. Coming from a happy, well-to-do, family Ellery has never had to deal with life’s harsher realities. Some of his clients and a very special co-worker have, however, introduced Ellery to a whole other, much darker, world. In the period since he first formed a relationship with Jackson, the firm’s P.I., Ellery’s life has been a constant struggle to keep him, and their relationship, safe. Falling in Love was easy, surviving to enjoy their future together, not so much.
With a drug addicted mother and an absent father Jackson Rivers barely survived his childhood or his first career as a police officer. Life as a P.I. at a top tier law firm should be a piece of cake, but with the new job comes new enemies, some of whom haunt him from his past, and surviving adulthood is looking just as dicey.
In A Few Good Fish we find Jackson and Ellery recovering from a run in with a particularly evil and suspiciously well trained serial killer. A new threat in the form of a psychopathic naval officer, with secrets he’ll kill to keep, has emerged and the rest and recreation these incredible young men deserve is looking more and more like a pipe dream. This time it’s not just Jackson under the gun and it will take the help of some very unlikely characters, and all of their family and friends, if Ellery and Jackson are to make it out alive.
Amy Lane has written some of my favourite novels in the MM genre. This incredibly fast paced riveting edge of your seat thriller is among her best. I adore the MC’s and the extraordinary cast of characters surrounding them. Ellery’s mother is intelligent, witty, feisty and fabulous and a particular favourite of mine, but the loyalty and fierceness of Jackson’s made family is a joy to observe as well. Amy Lane is masterful at writing novels with fully fleshed out characters and A Few Good Fish is no exception.
Greg Tremblay is one of my favourite narrators. He is a voice actor at the very top of his game and in A Few Good Fish he gifts the listener with an impeccable performance that completely immerses you in the story. Greg’s voice characterisations; male, female, young, old, accents, personality, emotions; the works; are so pitch perfect that you’ll completely forget that there isn’t a large brilliantly cast group of actors performing. When you disappear into the world he creates it’s like living inside the lives of the characters. As a listener the real world just fell away, which is exactly what I want from an audiobook.
The combination of Amy Lane’s storytelling and Greg Tremblay’s performance made for a sublime listening experience.
