Summary

In Dick Scalps the Injuns, Richard Avery is sent to India to investigate the kidnapping of the US ambassador's daughter in New Delhi. He discovers that the White House and State Department are in an uproar over the subsequent kidnapping of Afghan President Karzai's eldest daughter who had been living on the ambassador's residential compound under an assumed name and attending the International School of Delhi. His search for the girls leads him from Delhi to the crematoria ghats in Banaras and the Taj Mahal. Okay, we admit Dick's not the most politically correct agent alive, and he sometimes bumbles and reminds us of what happens when you cross a certain French Inspector with a British Legume to produce an American Dick, but you have to admit that he's as cute as a pink Rottweiler when he's on the scent of a good case! Who says you can't teach an ole dog new tricks?

In Dick Scalps the Injuns, Mr.J.Scott Bennett Is the perfect incarnation of the slick talking, wise cracking, sardonic and cynical, egotistical Richard (Dick) Avery, as he gives voice to the character of the ex Diplomatic Security Service agent recalled for a special mission. And because Dick needs the money for life's essentials - cigarettes, booze and women - he takes on the job despite knowing that he's been given it only because no one else will touch it. And because he is expendible.
This fast paced, funny and very non politically correct story, told entirely in the first person from Dick Avery's point of view, is clever, silly and filled with wonderful word play. Throughout it all, Scott Bennett brings this, well, not very likable but certainly charismatic 'hero' fully to life, his narration satisfyingly interpreting both text and character, his intonation making the most of the action and the comic verbal asides. The story is a fun one, too, and I especially enjoyed a section where one of the Indian intelligence agents attatched to Avery's team is granted security access. Hilarious, and a nice insight into beaurocratic workings.

I was freely gifted with a copy of Dick Scalps the Injuns by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. It was such fun, I listened to it in one sitting, laughing out loud at times (a very rare occurrence). Good story, great narration: thank you so much. A definite recommendation to brighten up any dreary day as long as the listener remembers that Avery is not a P.C. person, so leave the personal perceptions behind, sit back and simply enjoy

So Politically Incorrect!

This is such a fun book although it is totally politically incorrect. The author did a great job with his descriptions of parts of India and the character development. I found the humor to be enjoyable and liked the naughty bits. J.Scott Bennett did a great performance as I expected he would. I have listened to this narrator previously and so like his delivery style and accents. My review is not a synopsis, but rather my opinion. I was provided with this review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This book is a standalone listen and a complete story (no cliffhanger ending).

This book is lots of fun!

This book was a lot of fun. I'm hoping the audio comes out for the other books in the series soon. This book is really funny, a little bit dirty, and lots of fun. This book will entertain from start to finish. J. Scott Bennett's narration was spot-on and very enjoyable to listen to. I think this is perfect for people who love action and adventure with a healthy dose of humor.
