    "Mystery can still be fun"

    This was an unexpected "win" for me. It's very funny; not in the fall-off-your-chair Evanovich way but more like Rocky and Bullwinkle. The main characters, albeit tongue in cheek, are quite likable. In spite of being silly, the plot is engaging and well-paced. I had fun.

    AUDIO: Excellent reader, perfect to play the protagonist, and does well with the other characters, too.

    "Disappointing"

    I am a huge fan of Carl Hiassen and had heard or read that this author was similar. I went ahead and purchased all three books in the series and managed to listen to them all but with great difficulty. Plot is similar in all. Foul language is overdone. All in all, very juvenile. I consider these books a "Hardy Boys - X-rated"

    "Wack me fan!"

    I loved this book. It was a light funny detective novel. Without reiterating the reviews, which are on point, these are funny characters. John Ceepak and Danny Boyle are the most unlikely matched characters. This is the third in the series, so I cannot comment much about the development of the characters. Initially I was bored with them working on an unsolved cast from 10 years in the past. It was John Ceepak and Danny Boyle that kept me interested and enjoying the story. Since I want to find out more about their relationship, I will start the series from the beginning.

    "Good Twists"

    Interesting plot with good twists. Author could use some training on nautical terminology (front of boat vs. the bow)

    "great book"

    love the Ceepak series. Danny is a great funny man to Ceepaks seriousness. I love the twists and turns. The supporting cast is annoying, but I guess they need to be.

    "I definitely recommend this series!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are all interesting and well voiced by the narrator. Jeff Woodman really sounds like I would picture Danny Boyle. His different voices and characterizations really bring the other characters to life as well. These are characters I came to care about and made me want to keep reading with the next book in the series.

    The plot moves along at a good pace and keeps you guessing. I thought I had it figured out, but I didn't.

    I would definitely recommend this entire series.

    "Fun in the Sun with Murder on the Beach"

    The murder mystery in this third installment is more complicated than the other two books. There's definitely a Norman Bates feel to this killer. There's also more character development for Ceepak which is great see. Once again, fun, indulgent, and left me feeling good after listening to it.
