    I love how the murders can be so gory yet the author does it in such a way it isn t stomach turning The mystery twists and turns, and the beach setting just makes this so real like sunshine and thunder all at once Loving this series so much.

  4. John

    I liked the first two books, but by the middle of this one I was left wondering where it was headed After a couple of red herrings, the duo finally confront the villain in an exciting scene worth waiting for just Others have complained it was gruesome, but I didn t really think so Jeff Woodman s usual outstanding narration carried the story for me here, where I think I would ve definitely skimmed the print book wanting to get to the resolution.

    WHACK A MOLE is the third book in the John Ceepak Danny Boyle mystery series In this installment, Danny is now a full time officer with the Sea Haven Police Department, so he s carrying a gun But, fear not, he scored very well at the academy and knows how to handle himself with a firearm This new accessory to his uniform comes in handy when John and Danny have to find the killer who has buried the heads of his victims on the beach In the middle of winter, this might not have been such a problem, [...]

    Third in the John Ceepak series of novels, loosely labeled police procedurals I read the first two and very much enjoyed their humorous undertone This one is much, much darker with graphic descriptions of the dismembered victims of a Sea Haven serial killer who buried his victims twenty plus years ago and is now leaving parts of their bodies, polaroids, and religious hints around the island during the height of tourist season It sets a very different tone for the series.Narrated by Danny, the er [...]

    How does Sea Haven, NJ continue to have summer tourism For three years straight, the peaceful, quaint tourist town has been shaken by murders some pretty ghastly Sure, they ve got a police chief and a mayor dedicated to keeping the havoc and mayhem under wraps That s part of it And perhaps people looking to spend a week or two along the beach in Jersey aren t the most discriminating of people suddenly, I m thinking of a MTV series.Another factor, of course, has to be how the Sea Haven police dea [...]

    Seapack is at it again trying to hunt down a killer who may have been living in this costal tourist city for decades This addition to the series is a little gruesome and there is some profanity thrown in here and there Danny and Seapack have their hands full trying to get ahead of this killer and The Chief is not helping at all by assigning two other detectives that could not find their butt with both hands Seapack has requested that the FBI be called in but the Chief, as always, is trying to m [...]

    I couldn t put this book down once I started it two cops, one serial killer, and a Jersey seaside town Gotta Love it Actually bought it for the book title I like telling people I am reading Whack a Mole they all look at me with that weird squinty eyed perplexed look This is book 3 in a series of 5 I am definitely reading the others The book was humorous and gruesome and I wasn t sure who the killer was until the end I want to go to the boardwalk in Jersey real bad after reading this book And the [...]

    Great googlygrabenstein Must read from the Ceepak series Danny Boyle chronicles his days riding sidekick with John Ceepak as officers in the little seaside town of Sea Haven, NJ His hero worship of Ceepak is endearing Ceepak is the straightest arrow that ever flew, and a follower of the Book of Springsteen.After a very long time, a serial killer is back in action in little Sea Haven Ceepak and Danny are on the job, even before they realize how nasty a job it can be Life s a beach.kat

    A long dormant serial killer has suddenly decided to make an appearance at the height of tourist season in summer hot spot Sea Haven, New Jersey, and it s up to now officially a cop Danny Boyle and his partner John Ceepak to stop him This installment is a bit darker than the previous two books in this series, but Ceepak is still a Boy Scout and Danny is still cracking wise, keeping this a fun, easy read.

  13. Victoria

    OK, I m officially hooked on these John Ceepak mysteries Looked up Grabenstein s website and discovered a lot of interesting things He s also written kids books He was a stand up, improv comedian He co wrote the John Denver Christmas movie, A Christmas Gift He s written scripts for The Muppets He was an advertising copywriter And he ll be in Houston in a few weeks Cool Oh, yeah, and there are several in this series available That was the best info of all.

  14. Patty

    With Danny Boyle now a full time cop and still with his partner John Ceepak murder is guaranteed to occur again in this third chapter in the Jersey seaside mysteries Danny is growing up and developing as a man and Ceepak is starting to soften from his early rigid behavior They haven t changed drastically but you can see the character development in this third installment Highly recommended

  15. Sandi

    While not my favorite kind of plot, this was an entertaining audio I really like the characters, the setting on the Jersey shore is interesting, and the narration by Jeff Woodman is top notch.

  16. Craig

    These books keep getting better, though still a bit too jokey for my taste I m warming to the characters, though, and will keep reading.

  17. Jennifer

    I really enjoy Grabensteins books They are consistently entertaining, unlike some series that seem rushed at the end, as though there is a deadline to meet Fun quick reads.

  18. alex

    Really enjoyed this one as well, and I m looking forward to 3 Well written, very appealing characters, and enough scary plotting to make it exciting.

  19. Angie Boyter

    Not quite as good as the previous ones Not as much fun commentary and the crime is a bit nastier Eric W and Cathy Cole s reviews are spot on.

  20. Joseph Thomas

    Whack A Mole is the third book in the John Ceepak Mystery series This is one of the few series that you do not need to worry if you have not read the first two books in the series The same could probably be said for Mad Mouse book 2 So far each book is its own stand alone mystery which is resolved entirely in the novel This is a nice change of pace from many other series that I have read lately where even after three books into the series nothing major has been resolved.The story is set in the N [...]

    Good vs EvilWhack a Mole shows us the best and worst that mankind has to offer, and all that s in between Officers Ceepak and Boyle find themselves on the trail of a very cold case, and no one cares They work the mystery on their own time until their boss is forced to take notice Then all heck breaks loose.It s the first John Ceepak mystery I ve read, but I like the style There s enough humor to keep the depravity from overwhelming the reader, and plenty of characters to care about, as well as a [...]

  22. Rich

    I don t give 5 star ratings I think a book has to be near perfect or an established classic to deserve 5 stars Chris Grabenstein just captures me every time I love John Ceepak and Danny Boyle I am usually put off by novels written in present tense Chris makes it work I love Danny s narrator voice with his sarcastic wicked humor I will a little troubled at the fabricated passages from scripture, but was able to get over it in context of the novel This was a great airport read I polished it off in [...]

  23. Susanne

    Yet another amusing adventure in Sea Haven, NJ, where Officer Danny Boyle and his partner, John Ceepak continue to solve crimes and keep the island safe I listened to this on Audible, and once again the performance by Jeff Woodward was entertaining as was the story itself An easy escape, the ultimate beach read.

  24. Zachary

    WHACK A MOLEThis was a much darker mystery than that of what I was used to reading with Danny and Ceepak However, it was extremely well written, to the point that I was really surprised to find out who the killer was The author definitely takes you through a ride during this book Nice surprise at the end.

  25. Lisa Jameson

    These are easy, breezy summer mysteries with likeable characters and a few decent twists Some of the criminals are a little dark warned.

  26. Paul Jacques

    Ceepak and Danny continue to entertain and impress The dynamic between them is so authentic and heartfelt and has me sitting in my car, unable to turn off Audible I m starting to know my way around Sea Haven
