    "Really Weak"

    Weak story, ridiculous dialogue, juvenile plot. I stopped listening not quite half way through, and I stopped caring LONG ago. Will never read this author again. I would give it zero stars if that were an option. Mr. Grabenstein should take up a worthwhile profession that doesn't involve writing.

    "Good Story, Great Narration"

    This is an interesting quick listen, as are all of the Ceepak novels. The narrator, Jeff Woodman is a real star! It is worth the listen as Woodman is one of those guys who could read the phonebook and keep you interested.

    "Grabenstein is wonderful"

    Grabenstein writes comic crime capers, a genre that late beloved Donald Westlake perfected in the Dortmunder novels. Grabenstein is a worthy heir, whose books get better and better. .

    The narrator, Jeff Woodman, gets all the voices just right, which makes this series a wonderful read.

    Start with the first one and work through to the most recent. You will see how skillfully Grabenstein matures the characters. The narrator does a wonderful job showing these changes in the voices as well.

    "Amateur"

    I bought this book because I heard it was supposed to be similar to Hiaasen. It's not even close. There are funny parts but there aren't enough of them to really make this a humorous tale. Ceepak is a weak substitute for Sergeant Joe Friday. It's all been done before, only better.

    On top of that, the reader, like Dick Hill, makes the characters sound like morons.

    I did finish the book. It was an easy light read.

    "More Gruesome Ceepak/Boyle Mystery"

    The story was very good on this third Ceepak/Boyle novel, but very gruesome. I noticed in this mystery about a serial killer who keeps souvenirs that not everything tracked completely and several items in the story seemed unfinished, but it was still fun. Looking forward to reading more Grabenstein. The narration by Jeff Woodman is excellent.

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

    "maybe if you are under 30.."

    you will like this book. I found the dialogue and characters youngish for my taste. I just could not get into it.
