John Ceepak and Danny Boyle return with the hunt for a long-dormant serial killer who might be ready to strike again. An innocent discovery on the beach in Sea Haven pits Ceepak against a killer with a code just as rigid as his own. When the killer targets his next victim, the consequences becomes dire for Ceepak and Boyle. This is a game they must win.

"Another winner." (Booklist)
I like mysteries of all types from the serious to the comic. I found Chris Grabenstein by accident on Audible and have enjoyed all three in the series. Whack a Mole was the best so far with a pretty good mystery that took a while to figure out and a fun set of characters. The humor mixed in with the story is enjoyable and at times very funny. Though I enjoyed the story a good deal my favorite part is the narration by Jeff Woodman who did all the Grabenstein book. He definitely is one of my favorite narrators and his portrayal of the characters is very good, and the I think he has Danny and Ceepak down to perfection. I recommend the whole series and this book in particular. I am looking forward to listening to Hell Hole.

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.
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"
I am a audio book geek! I get on my bike and I can listen to a good thriller for hours. I like a great hero that can kick butt for the right reasons.
I have listened to three books in a row. I love the series, I love the characters , and the narrator really makes this enjoyable.
Love my family...along with guitars, road bikes, cameras, and a good book!
I love that this series doesn't take itself too seriously. Great writing excellent narration. A win-win!!

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.
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.
The narrator really does make the book and makes me want more. thank you all
