The Midnight Plan of the Repo Man - W. Bruce Cameron

Ruddy had great prospects in life as the college football star. Now however, he's a repo man collecting the cars from people who can't/won't pay for them. After an incident at work he wakes up to find a voice inside his head. The voice says he's Alan, he's been murdered and he wants Ruddy to find the people responsible for his death, so there can be justice. But is it real, or is it a case of the so called Repo Madness?


Set in some small American community, the book started weird. I didn't really know what to expect, but still it was completely different. Sounds strange, I understand that, but I don't know how to describe it better. When the story really starts (when Alan is a bit established and the search starts) it was actually quite interesting. Some - IMHO - important questions around Alan and his appearance in Ruddy's brain. Since the rest of this novel isn't anything fantasy-like I get the idea that this was not so important for the author. But I would have liked to see an explanation.


Also there were a bit too much coincidences for my liking. Ruddy walks into almost everyone he's always looking for. His past comes in handy sometimes as well and the whole business with Katie is a bit too much for me! But besides, it was an enjoyable novel, though I'm still not completely sure what I thought of it...
