I can't tell the readers or author how important this series of books have become to me. I am nearly a senior citizen (74 years old) who recently became a widow after 35 years of being more than happily married. Now I am struggling to find out just who I really am & to try & go forth in life. Reading at least 4 of these books so far they have spoken to me on more than a literary way. John Ceepak & his side kick Danny & all those who deal with them are teaching me something I should have known & followed in Kindergarten. The stories themselves are simple & enjoyable, life like & challenging when I ask myself "Could I do that?" Could I be like J. Ceepak with his code of honor? I had to give that a lot of thought. It is so easy to skip over. Be aware readers, I am 74 yrs old so this is a serious & meaningful question for me. And by the way it is in the ten commandments. Say what? But I am not going there per se. I did realize the "code" was very meaningful to me although I knew it also take compassion, patience & courage. So here is the rub….. what does it take to follow the example of the author Chris Grabenstein's description of being someone 'who does not lie, does not steal or does not cheat,' & more importantly does not tolerate those who do! I know I know what a Pandora's box this can become. & I can see the wall of resistance coming down like Niagara falls. And I agree it isn't for everyone, but I also know life can be much simpler, less stressful & so much less dramatic by taking this code seriously. So as I continue to read this entertaining & enticing series I have decided I am going try to try & do just this. Wish me luck in a world where none of this code is taken very seriously.
Two authors made this book a complete disaster. I wouldn’t even call it a book since the story line was missing throughoutl. Ridiculous unbelievable story lines running into each other ad nauseam. Too many characters adding nothing but confusion & people getting murdered to for no real reasons. Main character can’t stop self-.It is going back for sure.destructing over & over (tiring & boring ) book too long.. Narration was over the top loud & brash with a sprinkle of pure nasty. I can’t even figure out how this book ever got published. Even the little girl turned out to be a loud mouthy little brat. The villain? Oh don’t even ask! In my opinion this book could never be rewriten even with a gallon of strong glue. I kid you not. And if I could I would not have even given them a one star rating. It will be going back for sure.
I really enjoyed the memoir of Martin Short. His SNL performances gave my family many fun filled nights & it was interesting to know more about his real life. My 50 year old son goes around imitating him all the time. Thanks much Martin it was a good read
I really enjoyed this book. It certainly kept my interest throughour & was extremely hard to second guess. The narration was great too. If there was a book I really needed when sleep evaded me it was this one. Yes
This book was captivating all the way to the end. In fact it felt like 4 books in one. The subject matter was very interesting & the narrator (Dick Hill) was excellent as usual. All in all I enjoyed it very much & would recommend it to others. It was my kind of book.
Kept me fascinated from beginning to end. I really hate to see these kinds of books end. Narration great too. Highly recommend.
Bith if these writer are very good, but together they SMOKE. It has been a long time when reading a book that i yearned to look up words in the dictionary, which in this book was aplenty. Bne chilling suspense was preasant too & as always subject matter was thoroughly researched. Thanks guys
Fabulous story line. interesting, exciting. With every turn a new plot, yet all connected in the end. A definate thriller

She nailed the part as narrator from beginning to end
The Charity Ball
How Sophie was always one step ahead of everyone.
I loved the language & words never heard in todays society. The men actually had something to say.
She brought the character alive in a very neat way.
Oh yea, I laughed everytime Sophie got the upper hand which was always.
