I bought this book because I heard it was supposed to be similar to Hiaasen. It's not even close. There are funny parts but there aren't enough of them to really make this a humorous tale. Ceepak is a weak substitute for Sergeant Joe Friday. It's all been done before, only better.
On top of that, the reader, like Dick Hill, makes the characters sound like morons.
I did finish the book. It was an easy light read.
The story was very good on this third Ceepak/Boyle novel, but very gruesome. I noticed in this mystery about a serial killer who keeps souvenirs that not everything tracked completely and several items in the story seemed unfinished, but it was still fun. Looking forward to reading more Grabenstein. The narration by Jeff Woodman is excellent.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
We have enjoyed all of the books and are always looking forward to the next one!
This is the series my wife and I listen to while traveling. A fun mystery, reminds me of lawrence Saunders Archie Books.
It really makes you think about how far people will take things. Excellent Job again Chris and Jeff keep it coming!!! You will have 2 listen 2 this for yourself.... start at the beginning of the series and work your way down! I did. excellent choice ten four!!
Didn't know what to expect, but after this listen, I went out and found his other three books in the series and have read them all. AND, I'm waiting for the next one to arrive. I really enjoyed the tone of the book, the characters, the plot and the setting. I had absolutely no expectations going in, and was thoroughly delighted. HEY CHRIS! GET BUSY ON THE NEXT ONE (or several)!!!!!
This series is easy to listen to and thoroughly enjoyable. The plot lines and characters are well developed and even though it's not too serious, it keeps you interested.
I found the story unremarkable, rather contrived and almost as over the top as the narration. The characters seemed as implausible as cartoon characters in a very contrived plot that was as ludicrous as it was boring. While this is not the worst I have read or listened to is is certainly close and I would have to be indefinably hospitalized to subject myself to another of these books.
