    "It just gets better!"

    I have now listened to five of the Ceepack Series, from the start. And I love how the characters develop and grow; using incredible story lines.

    Danny Boyle started off as a green as they come Summer Cop; now despite his own view of himself, he is an incredibly talented police officer. And funny, sweet, yet slowly becoming more apt at his job. learning from his partner Ceepack.

    As for Ceepack, wow. to start with he was simply his code; but as the novels go on, you start to see what made him the way he is. As well as shreds of a more human side.

    if you haven't listened to the others yet; Tilter-Whirl, Mad Mouse, Whack-A - Mole and Hell Hole. Then listen to them first; you will have the privilege of getting to know these beautifully created characters, their loved ones. And the place they call home.

    Mind Scrambler like all the other Ceepack Series not only addresses serious crimes in an aproachable and entertaining way. But also speaks for those suffering with PTSD after serving for their country.

    I bow my head to both Chris Grabenstein and Jeff Woodman for bringing to life such an elegant and elaborate story.

    Louisa Simpson.

    "Fun ride on the Mind Scrambler"

    I got into the John Ceepak series when I noticed it recommended as pick on Audible. I loved the Mad Mouse and just burned through the next three books in the series. I was looking forward to Mind Scrambler, anticipating the book would follow Ceepak's no good father to Ohio. Instead, we went to Atlantic City where Ceepak and Danny run into ex-girlfriend Katy. It is fun to follow the untwisting knot of relationships and motivations as they are revealed thread by thread. It is this understanding that Danny is beginning to understand. Danny is pressed to make decisions based on his assessments of the human beings. Danny's skill matures enough to enable him to bring John Ceepak from the edge of murdering someone himself.
    The Audible recording is narrated by Jeff Woodman who does an outstanding job. I highly recommend the audible version of the entire series.

    "Narrator is the star"

    The Cepak books are a little "one note" for my taste, but the plotting and local color are fun and for a light read they serve admirably.

    Jeff Woodman does a spectacular job of narration. He nails dialects (is he really from New Jersey?) and provides a wonderful variety of character voices which entertain all on their own in addition to doing their basic job of letting us know who is speaking at any given time. He captures the spirit of the book perfectly and enhances it as well.

    "story o.k. Narrator Excellent"

    The story was quite boring-I felt the author was just filling pages. I listened to the book while performing other duties just to finish. He also wasted many pages on explanations, not giving the listener or reader any mindset. This is the first time reading this series and am not inclined to buy any more. Very disappointed.

    "Good Mystery with light humor"
    What about Jeff Woodman’s performance did you like?

    I believe he has the character spot on. Reminds me some of Parker's Spencer. Love that series.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    At first was thrown by the humor and thought might be for younger listeners. Glad I stuck with it. Went back and downloaded all the other books in the series. I'm a fan.

    "Another great listen!"

    I have listened to all the Ceepak books since they first came out and this one didn't disappoint. I love how both Ceepak and Danny's characters continue to develop. And Jeff Woodman is awesome as usual!

    "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.

    "Entertaining"

    Enjoyed the humor in this one. Good characters, interesting story. I kind of felt this was more of a Danny Boyle mystery than a John Ceepak tale, but that's really not a good or bad thing. I found the book similar in style and mood to other crime novels set in his region of the country, I was somewhat reminded of William Lashner's "Marked Man". Interesting... one reviewer complained about the author's "political sniping" If there was any of this going on, it was mild (and somewhat refreshing) and there were very few instances of it anyway. I can always enjoy a little poke at the right. If the author was truly political, he's have crucified Donald Trump. I'll read more by this author as long as the same narrator does the reading.
