Theres more fireworks down the Jersey shore in Chris Grabenstein's sixth fast-paced John Ceepak mystery, Rolling Thunder.
A prominent citizen suffers a heart attack on opening day of a brand new boardwalk roller coaster in the seedy seaside resort town Sea Haven, New Jersey. Initially ruled a tragic accident, it isnt long before there are suspicious hints of foul play, especially after another dead body is discovered: a stunning young beach beauty.
Fortunately for mystery lovers, the straight-arrow cop John Ceepak and his wise-cracking young partner Danny Boyle are on the case, a detective/sidekick duo critics have compared to Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin.
Crack another case with John Ceepak.

"Full of unpredictable twists and turns. There's plenty of fizz in the chemistry between the two protagonists to keep the novel and the reader spinning." (Boston Globe)
Great book as usual. Woodman's narration makes the audio perfect. I really enjoyed the characters and the pacing and Ceepak never gets old. Might want to listen to these books in order as some characters are from previous books. It is NOT necessary to enjoy it but it makes it a little more fun.
Daily commuter relying on Audible to keep awake. I need excitement! If something crazy doesn't happen in the first 20 mins I'm done!
I love the charactors and the plots. Very simple, easy to follow and I like the moral John with his side kick Danny. I also like the setting in a beach town that has tourist seasons and otherwise a quiet small town atmosphere.
Definately. If you like murder mystery but do not like all the gore of some of the crime stories out there. These stories would be appropriate for even a younger audiance (teens) who like mysteries.
This narrator is AWSOME! So many voices, he is easy to follow when he changes charactors - a lot of diversity without any fake sounding (cartoon-like) voices.
Picked this out of a list of legal thrillers for my first audible book. I enjoyed the combination of humor and mystery very much. I did not have to concentrate too much on the characters to keep everything straight, so its a good book for a drive in traffic. Very good narration.
Having become a fan of Danny and Cepak, I couldn't wait for this new one to be released. I wasn't disappointed! I find myself laughing out loud while listening. The narrator is exceptional and helps increase the enjoyment of this book. Sheer fun. Can't wait for the next one.
You never really knew who the bad person was.. Like Danny, I kept changing my mind until the very least moment.
Absolutely. It was from one unexpected plot to another even less expected.
don't have a favorite it was...to quote Ceepak "all good".
Say something about myself! I'm 66 with poor vision and HANDICAPPED,I save all my actual reading for my bible. My pleasure is at AUDIBLE!
THEY are so different yet they compliment each other. There is a touch of humor and then there is the Sr. Ceepak who makes me so angry I want to........well anyway it is a good book! It's the second one I have read and I will read more. The problem is that because of audible.com, I have found many favorite authors & it takes me awhile to make my rounds to get back to the beginning of my list. Believe me Chris G. is on my list.
A prominent woman dies on Sea Haven's new wooden roller coaster, but was there a crime? Danny and Ceepak are on the trail when an entirely new crisis shocks the town, threatening the investigators, their friends, and the rapidly-approaching tourist season. "Rolling Thunder," the sixth John Ceepak Mystery from Chris Grabenstein, won't disappoint loyal fans or new readers. As always, Jeff Woodman's narration pulls the characters off the written page and into your headphones. There's plenty of mystery, suspense, and the usual humor, with an ending that will keep you turning pages until it concludes. And...is there someone new in Danny's life? Stay tuned!
C.G.books are never a waste of time or credit. Well writen and uniquly narrared with humor. I always look forward to his books.
I have always loved to read, and now I really enjoy listening to my books as well!!
I love the way all the books in the John Ceepak series are named for the amusement park attractions in Sea Haven, New Jersey. It's one example of the very clever writing of these books. I have not given the author, Chris Grabenstein, enough credit in past reviews.
I enjoyed this book as much as I have the previous installments. This story took us back to Sea Haven, with more mysterious crimes for Ceepak and Danny Boyle to solve. Is was as humorous as always, keeping it light and entertaining. And the narrator does a wonderful job bringing the story to life.
This is a series I highly recommend--I don't think it will disappoint anyone looking for an entertaining 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.
Another great book by Grabenstein, but this one...I actually figured out before the end! I was so proud of myself because I can NEVER figure out the culprit in his books! I love the characters in these books!
