Summary

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.

Critic reviews

"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)

Best. Narrator. Ever.

I love these stories but they are augmented beyond belief by the amazing performance of the narrator.

Chris Grabenstein and Jeff Woodman do it again!

I would love to spend the day in Chris Grabenstein's head, and get to see how ge creates such vivid and true to life characters , locations and situations.

As out there as some of his stories seem. They fit patterns of certain kinds of killers, and are completely true to form.

I cannot get enough of this series! !

It has been several years since I listened to...

It has been several years since I listened to a novel in this cop series. As usual the real star of audiobooks in the John Ceepak series is narrator Jeff Woodman. For those not familiar with this series it is set in a coastal beach resort town in New Jersey. The books are written in the first person of young police officer Danny Boyle who grew up in the town. John Ceepak is a more senior officer from Ohio who was a military hero. Ceepak is literally incapable of lying or doing anything dishonest or illegal. The novels tend to be humorous although thin one is not. Chris Grabenstein is a very talented author with a flair for the unlikely and the outrageous. He makes the listening fun especially when paired with narrator Jeff Woodman. It is an offbeat and usually light and humorous police series.

Very Enjoyable First Audible Book

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.
