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.

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.

Excellent again as always in this series. very upset about I've of the deaths in particular but good story, lots of twists and turns. I've come to love Danny and Ceepak now. Not sure what I'll do when I get to the end of the series! They kind of feel like family!
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.
Another wonderful chapter in this fun series. The narration by Jeff Woodman is as always excellent.
This series is a wonderful 'summer' read and I mean that in a very positive way. With so many detective/crime series, being so dark and heavy this series comes across as light and refreshing.
This story revolves more around Danny, following the murder of his close friend. As always great Springsteen quotes are used throughout the book. Highly recommended series.
