Publisher's Summary

“I didn’t do it!” is something cops hear all the time. But when the plea comes from a close friend who’s fallen on hard times, it’s tougher to ignore, especially for young Officer Danny Boyle. It’s the start of another action-packed summer for the wisecracking Boyle and straight-arrow cop (now chief of detectives) John Ceepak down the Jersey Shore as they do their best to help Danny’s friend, a young nurse who claims she has been falsely accused of aggravated assault by a prestigious Sea Haven doctor.

Ceepak’s unshakable code of honor is tested when he trusts that the nurse is telling the truth. It’s stretched to the limit when one of the nurse’s home health care patients turns up dead. Now Ceepak and Danny must answer the hard and horrible question: "Did we just help a friend get away with murder?" Get ready for another fun and fast-paced listen from Anthony and Agatha award-winner Chris Grabenstein.

    "Dull, dull and dull"

    I was excited to try this new series based on the many positive reviews. I was extremely disappointed. Eight chapters in and absolutely nothing has happened; no character development, no plot no reason to continue listening.

    Story
    "Pure Enjoyment"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    LOVE this series and can't get enough. I find myself laughing out loud. Grabenstein is terrific and Woodman is a brilliant narrator. Don't EVER get a different narrator for this series. I've recommended this series to others and they've all become fans as well.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Free Fall?

    The ending was memorable, in that I didn't want it to end. This book is too much fun -- I wanted it to keep going.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Jeff Woodman is an absolutely OUTSTANDING narrator. I've purchased other books simply because he narrates them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Didn't want to put this book down and didn't want it to end.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next Ceepak/Boyle book!

    "Another entertaining Grabenstein!"
    If you could sum up Free Fall in three words, what would they be?

    entertaining page turner


    What did you like best about this story?

    Again Chris Grabenstein wrote a very sunderful Story with his cool characters and a nice Story! Especially nice since I know the Free Fall myself - have been in last year and now look at it a bit different :-)


    What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He again managed to bring the characters ALife in such a cool manner that one can see them right in front of ones eyes! Reading the book would be good too but he makes it like a movie in your mind!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Sometimes I just had to love (therefore nothing to read in class or a quiet Environment :-)


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the next one will come out soon and be as good as the first eight ones!!!

    "FREE FALL"
    Where does Free Fall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    That's a hard question, because I have looked at these books as more as a comic relief; than anything else.


    What other book might you compare Free Fall to and why?

    I really couldn't say, because I wasn't thinking along those lines. I was actually enjoying myself, and finding myself smiling a lot. 😁


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, in the previous books in this series. He did a great job as Ceepak's dad!!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did!! 😊


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent end to a great series!!! I'm hoping to get an email saying there is a new book coming out! I'M NOT SURE, I THINK THEY SAY THIS SERIES IS FOR YOUNG ADULTS, HOWEVER, I READ IT ANYWAY FOR FUN. I'M SO GLAD I DID! THE SETTING IS AT THE JERSEY SHORE, THE CHARACTERS ARE HILARIOUS, AND THE PLOTS REVOLVE AROUND THE RIDES ON THE BOARDWALK, I.E. FUN HOUSE, FREE FALL. QUICK EASY, FUN BOOKS THAT WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH AND SMILE, AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A TEENAGER EITHER!!! 😁👙🐷⚓💰🏊🎰🎲😀

    "Not very exciting"

    This book wasn't 'bad', but it wasn't that exciting. Also, the voice the narrator used for Ceepak was weird and annoying.

    "Good clean story . Really enjoyed the narrator."

    Good storyline nice to hear something clean without all the foul language . The narrator did a great job with each character so you knew who each one was.

    Love to walk and listen. Commute and listen. I typically enjoy well developed characters mixed with a good mystery.

    "Fun. Easy read. TV type mystery"
    If you could sum up Free Fall in three words, what would they be?

    Fun. Well paced. Not to serious.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Free Fall?

    Listening to Ceepak.


    Any additional comments?

    Generally speaking I love a good mystery. I enjoy complex mysteries. This wasn't really complex, but it was just enough. Don't take this to serious and enjoy it for what it is which is small town detective work with enjoyable characters.
