"Another winner." (Booklist)
This was an unexpected "win" for me. It's very funny; not in the fall-off-your-chair Evanovich way but more like Rocky and Bullwinkle. The main characters, albeit tongue in cheek, are quite likable. In spite of being silly, the plot is engaging and well-paced. I had fun.
AUDIO: Excellent reader, perfect to play the protagonist, and does well with the other characters, too.
I am a huge fan of Carl Hiassen and had heard or read that this author was similar. I went ahead and purchased all three books in the series and managed to listen to them all but with great difficulty. Plot is similar in all. Foul language is overdone. All in all, very juvenile. I consider these books a "Hardy Boys - X-rated"
love the Ceepak series. Danny is a great funny man to Ceepaks seriousness. I love the twists and turns. The supporting cast is annoying, but I guess they need to be.
The narrator really does make the book and makes me want more. thank you all
The characters are all interesting and well voiced by the narrator. Jeff Woodman really sounds like I would picture Danny Boyle. His different voices and characterizations really bring the other characters to life as well. These are characters I came to care about and made me want to keep reading with the next book in the series.
The plot moves along at a good pace and keeps you guessing. I thought I had it figured out, but I didn't.
I would definitely recommend this entire series.
An avid reader who works too much to actually read in the traditional manner she now consumes audiobooks at her job, driving, and running.
The murder mystery in this third installment is more complicated than the other two books. There's definitely a Norman Bates feel to this killer. There's also more character development for Ceepak which is great see. Once again, fun, indulgent, and left me feeling good after listening to it.

-frustrated sigh- Mr. Chris Grabenstein has done it again. Left me feeling guilty for laughing through out this horrid serial killer crime mystery. And I was completely wrong, I thought I figured out who the nutcase killer was in this! Boy was I wrong!!!
Ceepak and Danny are at it again. They stumble upon a serial killer, must solve the puzzle while dealing with worthless help, a Mayor and Chief of Police, desperate to keep the killings secret, and my growing voice crush for Danny Boyle. -giggles-
Jeff Woodman narration is amazing and fun as usual! I just get a real kick listening to all the different Jersey accents he can do!
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
As with many detective stories the subject matter is a bit harsh. However, it's told in a light hearted way. Ceepak is a bit too perfect, gotta wonder if he'll ever crack.
I finished books 1 & 2 and bought 3 & 4 during a sale. The John Ceepak Series is light reading with just enough mystery to keep my interest. The well drawn characters and narrator make the books so readable/listenable--the two main characters' voices sound as if they are coming from two different readers. I will definitely keep listening to this series!
