Young Danny Boyle, the part-time summer cop "down the shore" in Sea Haven, New Jersey, gets taken on a wild ride when he and his longtime beach buddies become the unwitting targets of a madman's twisted scheme for revenge. Fortunately, John Ceepak, the cop with a soldier's unshakable code of honor, stays at Danny's side to help him negotiate the quick twists and turns that threaten to destroy his life, his friends, and everything about the world he loves.
Whipping from the boardwalk to the beach and back again, Mad Mouse keeps zigging and zagging at a breakneck pace, all the way to the surprising finish.

"With agile humor, neat plotting, unexpected sweetness, and an irresistible duo, Grabenstein offers a hip new form of cozy." (Booklist)
"Likable good guys, plausible bad guys, a sensible plot and a supple prose style that moves from breezy to poignant." (Kirkus Reviews)
This is great series. Quick, smart and very entertaining! Highly recommended if Agatha Christie is a little too HIGH BROW for you.
No. I don't listen to any books twice. There are to many I haven't heard to want to hear one twice.
Ceepak is by far my favorite character. Ceepak is the kind of cop I like. He is what you would want all cops to be like. The narrator really does a good job with him as he sounds I would imagine him to sound. In the end I just like his style.
I listened to the first and the series and found this one to be just as good. It was a good story with believable characters and I enjoyed it just as much as the first one.
Yes but I did not.
If you want a fast paced, interesting, funny cop mystery than give this series a try.
Narration was amazing as always. I love the different voices, Jeff Woodman makes you want to keep listening. This story wasn't as good as the first, wasn't as suspenseful or exciting. I found myself having to rewind because it didn't hold my attention. I will continue on with the series though. I love Danny and Ceepak and the narration alone is worth the listen.
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.
I really enjoyed it - I thought this one was different because it seemed the mystery was solved so early in the book but....of course, another twist! Graberstein never fails to entertain me and Woodman is a great reader!!!! Bought the next book in the series a few minutes ago!
I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.
This is the second book in the John Cepak series; they are just fun to listen too. I like thrillers and crime novels; this series is in the crime genre but its very light and more on the amusing side than a lot of dark grisly series.
The main character is technically John Cepak but everything is told from the very amusing viewpoint of his young police partner Danny Boyle.
This story did not disappoint and kept the sprit of the series going. This time Danny and his friends are the target of someone from his past.
Sadly the reason the person was after them resonates all too well with what so many young people face. It was done well in this story and you can truly understand why the perpetrator felt the way he did.
I Shoulda Readit
All the authors books are very similar
Anyone, although if he would develop a different voice and tone for Cepak he wouldn't be so bad. Cepak sounds robotic and Danny sounds like a woosh.
For me audio is better. I travel a lot.
I like Ceepack. He makes me laugh.
I enjoyed all off the books this series.
I very much enjoy the John Ceepak mysteries, and this one is no exception. But toward the end, this one started to drag. Could have ended this story about an hour earlier. The narrator is great though, and its worth a credit if you don't want to concentrate really hard. If you are only going to read one Ceepak mystery though, Rolling Thunder is the best.
Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
After reading James Patterson for years, we were looking for another author as a change of pace. Thank you Chris Grabenstein. We are really enjoying the John Ceepak Mysteries and the fantastic narration by Jeff Woodman.
They are like chocolate, can't wait to taste the filling in the next one!
Things get a little darker but the fun of seeing NJ seacoast thru narrator's eyes remains. Great in car listen, easy to follow and lots of smiles.
