One of the better books in the series. Ceepak seemed to be secondary to Danny here, with the focus on Danny's feelings and observations, even though Danny's been Watson to his Holmes all along. I will say that after this one Sea Haven seems like a real danger magnet! For those who listen to the audio versions, one thing struck me as rather odd, if not a bit grating. It seems the woman from the state cops whom they had been working with retired, soi now there's a new guy instead.
I skipped Hell H One of the better books in the series. I skipped Hell Hole , so perhaps the guy's very heavy Boston accent which is well done was explained there, but here it came out of the blue, so I kept thinking Jeff Woodman was messing up a New Jersey accent such that there are , but he's done others fairly well before.

Danny, who narrates the books, is a local boy who more or less drifted into police work. Under Ceepak's expert tutelage, Danny is becoming a better detective and a better man with every book in the series. One thing that sets this series ap After a summer of audiobooks and a busy fall, I'm beginning to catch up on my reading and to get up to date on some of my favorite fictional characters. One thing that sets this series apart from most of the police procedurals I read is Danny's status as a hometown cop.
Quite often, the victims, suspects, and perpetrators, as well as many of the witnesses, are people Danny went to high school with or their parents or siblings. This makes for a completely different police-citizen relationship than one might find in, say, a Michael Connelly book. Danny's hometown status also means that he has something to contribute when he and outsider Ceepak are investigating a crime, which keeps their relationship from being just another "great detective and bumbling sidekick.
But suspicions soon arise: was the death really a heart attack? Highly recommended. Mar 08, Michelle rated it it was ok Shelves: 3-stars-or-less , read-in , part-of-a-series.
This installment kind of got off to a rough start for me, and never really got my attention. The wife of a wealthy local businessman dies when she has a heart attack while on the maiden trip around the track of the roller coaster her husband had built, and Officer Danny Boyle and his partner Officer John Ceepak immediately begin discussing foul play. The fact that the woman was an overweight smoker with a bad heart and was absolutely terrified of riding the roller coaster to begin with is never This installment kind of got off to a rough start for me, and never really got my attention.
The fact that the woman was an overweight smoker with a bad heart and was absolutely terrified of riding the roller coaster to begin with is never factored in, which was a stretch for me. There's a reason why every roller coaster in the world has health warnings and disclaimers posted everywhere for those considering riding them!!!
The story then ventures off to include the death of a local hottie waitress involved in a Playboy mansion-esque Gentlemen's Sex Club that seemed to involve way too many local dignitaries not to attract the attention of any local scandal-sniffing media hounds.
Overall, this plot was a little too scattered to actually be convincing, and is my least favorite in the series so far. May 16, Lesley rated it it was amazing. Thanks Chris Grabenstein I really am glad the boys were back on the job at the Jersey Shore, Danny is funnier than ever and Ceepak is getting so lovable I listened to the audio version and I love the narrator, expecially doing the hip-hop slang of Sean, maybe my favorite side character in this book.
This one is a winner!!! I really enjoyed this book.oaomonolit.ru/includes/arsenal/3031-come-recuperare.php
The guys were back on the Jersey Shore where they belonged battling out out their crimes, no matter how crazy they might be! Ceepak is his natural "robotic, I cannot tell a lie" self," while Danny is still learning and looking up to his mentor. As usual I have a habit of not really telling what the book is about for fear of spoilers. I feel you can find that info on reviews on Amazon, etc.
John Ceepak Mysteries
I just give my opinion if I liked it. It was a fun read that had me laughing in certain areas. I feel if you're going to read books like these, you can't take them seriously. I'm on his 7th book in this series. I intend to finish all 8. I really enjoy the characters, and it's a refreshing change from the serious novels I usually read! I will probably check out other books in the Ceepak series. Oct 07, Angela Verdenius rated it it was amazing.
I actually finished this back in September but haven't done the updates! Just love how this mystery unravelled. I kind of guessed the killer, but then I wasn't sure, then it looped around and - what can I say?
