This is in the wrong category. I cannot believe I finished this book. The characters have no depth. The narrator is about 14. Just a huge waste of time.
Not a one held any interest for me.
Tell us about yourself!
The variation in this episode is that Ceepak and Boyle are on the trail of a serial murderer. The undisguised clues are spread over the beach and in local shops. The locals don't want anything to disturb the tourists, but Ceepak's code makes him proceed with the investigation.
Again, Jeff Woodman does an excellent narration.
Somehow Grabenstein and Woodman make the gruesome topic of murder into a fun listen.

This whole series (so far) has been wonderful. It has some fun characters (stereotypical Jersey folks too), in a great setting, the beach, and keeps me guessing on who done it until the end.
From the start the author puts out an easy suspect but then starts to sprinkle in more to make it interesting, then when you think you’ve figured it out it’s time for one last turn. “Wack A Mole” is a well written ride for the mystery lover who likes to laugh!
Jeff Woodman does a great job from the accents to Danny's sense of humor to the dry no nonsense Ceepak. Close your eyes and you can almost taste the curley fries..
Whack A Mole by Chris Grabenstein is another in the John CeePak series. This is my fourth novel in that series in which the author tells a suspenseful tale that keeps you guessing until the end whodunnit? However, as in the other novels the reader's real pleasure comes from the quirky relationship between Danny Boyle, a newly minted cop and his hero, mentor, and idol John Ceepak. CeePak and Boyle are partners on the Sea Haven Police force, who are constantly finding murder mysteries to solve in their peaceful New Jersey seaside town with it's town natives and thousands of tourists as suspects. The author has a talent for making the reader/listener an intimate observer to all that happens. The author accomplishes this by using the second person as his primary voice and making his narrator so human.
Another great well written story, didn't like the depressing murders
Absolutely, loved the first couple of books in the series, and I'll hope Grabenstein isn't escalating.
Tilt-A-Whirl and Mad Mouse. Performance always great
OK, these books are not exactly works of great art, but something about them is fun and entertaining all the same. I really like the narration....
I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.
I really thought I had figured this one out but once again, the twists caught me off guard. I really love the characters and the setting. I am going to buy the next one right now!
Yes...It is a quick fun listen.
I have read the complete series...hope more will be coming in the future
