    "Very Good Read"

    Took a break from the Ceepak stories for a while and then went back and read this one. It was very well written, with a little less humor than most. This story has a lot of twists and turns, and the reader is outstanding. Well worth a credit.

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    "Typically Good...but"

    Another good Ceepak and Boyle mystery...however, this one was a little irrirating as the author had to get political and slam the previous administration and conservatives in a couple of not so obscure references. Grabenstein should stick to writing and keep the political agenda out of the book...especially when a man with the integrity of our hero, John Ceepak, would cringe at such stupid statements.

    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    "Darker than others in the series"

    I thought it was an excellent installment in the series. Yes, it was a different environment, and the underlying crimes are disgusting, but that's probably what I liked about it - it was much darker and grittier and more bad stuff happens than in the Sea Haven based stories.

    There were points where I wanted to smack some of the characters for being so frustrating and annoying and full-of-lies. Ceepak and Danny do make it through, but if it wasn't for the fact that they are essential to the series and you know they must prevail so they have to figure it out eventually, you might be worried that the bad guys will get away with their crimes.

    The narration was excellent.

    "Good entertainment if..."

    Really enjoyed his first book in this series and was delighted this one was a sale item. The narrator is great and provides a lot of humor while narrating the running commentary going on in the main character's head - definitely something we can all relate to! Would have given higher marks if I didn't have to suffer through the author's political sniping...just entertain me!

    "Boyle is growing up"
    Any additional comments?

    The characters of Boyle and Ceepak develop over the course of this series. In the first book, Boyle is young and inexperienced. You can really see Boyle growing up and getting a bit of an edge in this one. The mystery in Mind Scrambler is very intense or at least it was for me. It's good when a book draws you in and gets you involved and invested with it.
