Free Fall: A John Ceepak Mystery, Book 8 | [Chris Grabenstein]

Free Fall: A John Ceepak Mystery, Book 8

“I didn’t do it!” is something cops hear all the time. But when the plea comes from a close friend who’s fallen on hard times, it’s tougher to ignore, especially for young Officer Danny Boyle. It’s the start of another action-packed summer for the wisecracking Boyle and straight-arrow cop (now chief of detectives) John Ceepak down the Jersey Shore as they do their best to help Danny’s friend, a young nurse who claims she has been falsely accused of aggravated assault by a prestigious Sea Haven doctor.

Publisher's Summary

“I didn’t do it!” is something cops hear all the time. But when the plea comes from a close friend who’s fallen on hard times, it’s tougher to ignore, especially for young Officer Danny Boyle. It’s the start of another action-packed summer for the wisecracking Boyle and straight-arrow cop (now chief of detectives) John Ceepak down the Jersey Shore as they do their best to help Danny’s friend, a young nurse who claims she has been falsely accused of aggravated assault by a prestigious Sea Haven doctor.

Ceepak’s unshakable code of honor is tested when he trusts that the nurse is telling the truth. It’s stretched to the limit when one of the nurse’s home health care patients turns up dead. Now Ceepak and Danny must answer the hard and horrible question: "Did we just help a friend get away with murder?" Get ready for another fun and fast-paced listen from Anthony and Agatha award-winner Chris Grabenstein.

    "Pure Enjoyment"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    LOVE this series and can't get enough. I find myself laughing out loud. Grabenstein is terrific and Woodman is a brilliant narrator. Don't EVER get a different narrator for this series. I've recommended this series to others and they've all become fans as well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Free Fall?

    The ending was memorable, in that I didn't want it to end. This book is too much fun -- I wanted it to keep going.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Jeff Woodman is an absolutely OUTSTANDING narrator. I've purchased other books simply because he narrates them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Didn't want to put this book down and didn't want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next Ceepak/Boyle book!

    Story
    "Another entertaining Grabenstein!"
    If you could sum up Free Fall in three words, what would they be?

    entertaining page turner


    What did you like best about this story?

    Again Chris Grabenstein wrote a very sunderful Story with his cool characters and a nice Story! Especially nice since I know the Free Fall myself - have been in last year and now look at it a bit different :-)


    What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He again managed to bring the characters ALife in such a cool manner that one can see them right in front of ones eyes! Reading the book would be good too but he makes it like a movie in your mind!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Sometimes I just had to love (therefore nothing to read in class or a quiet Environment :-)


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the next one will come out soon and be as good as the first eight ones!!!

    Any additional comments?

    What I loved about this story:

    Danny and Ceepak as a team being funny as ever.

    A classic who dun it vibe.

    Clues to the murderer are left around the story like little crumbs helping you deduce whose the likely suspect.

    Ceepak making a funny. (Actually I can't remember if it was this story or from Rolling Thunder...hehehe)

    A very well written mystery with some fun laughs and some fun characters.

    💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 Jeff Woodman 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖


    What I didn't love about this story:

    The dumb Mayor and Chief of Police.

    The disrespect towards Danny close to the end.

    Ceepak not letting his annoying old man die previously.

    Christine! Great she has an oath, but what good is it if you allow people to walk all over you! When your lawyer has threaten not to represent you because you won't tell him why people are trying to destroy your life because you care so much about them, but they hate the very essence of you, something is seriously loose in your brain!!!! Jeeze she was ridiculously pathetic!!! Damsel in distress all the way. I hate damsels in distress who do not even try to help themselves!!!!

    Katie didn't miraculously come back from the dead to be with Danny again. (What? She's the only chic I could I stand in this series so far for Danny. Leila was ok, at least she had a backbone but....we know how that turned out).

    Danny's attraction to hot chic's seemed leacherous in this story. In previous stories his description of hot chic's were funny. I was completely turned off by them in this story.
    Mainly because I'm not attracted to chic's sooo...

    No book 9 to make everything that went wrong in this story better. -frustrated sigh-

    I like happy endings and realism that is realistic rather than gritty.

    "Beloved character mature thru series!"

    So, there's this crime, and these police officers try to solve it.

    This one was almost a cozy, except for the places where it wasn't.

    I love these characters--I'd gladly listen to them solve the mystery of who ate the last cookie.

    And I really love that Danny, Ceepak, et al grow and change from year to year and book to book. So much more relatable than characters that stay perpetually 28 across 20+ books (ahem, Stephanie Plum).

    "I consider this a "lite" murder mystery"

    This was my first book of this series. I found it to be less detailed than the other books I have been reading lately and , I missed the intricacies needed to make a real good story.

    "not great"

    I was fooled by the overall rating on this book. It doesn't belong in the same stratosphere as the really good 4-star reads (Child, Coben, Johnson). The dialogue is wooden, and the writing is just plain hard to swallow.

    "Easy listening, great narrator"

    A great, easy-to-read detective story with likable main characters. Also a nice move to see the story from the main Ceepak's colleague's view. And Jeff Woodman does a superb job narrating the story. He really bring the characters to life. My only regret was that I started with book 8, now I have to work myself backwards in time :)

    I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.

    "My favorite one of the Ceepak Series!"

    A great book! I have really enjoyed the entire series, and this book, was my favorite. Of course, it is currently the last book and I am hoping there is a book 9 coming soon!
