Publisher's Summary

It's almost Labor Day, and the end of summer could mean the end of someone's life in this exciting sequel to Chris Grabenstein's Tilt-a-Whirl.

Young Danny Boyle, the part-time summer cop "down the shore" in Sea Haven, New Jersey, gets taken on a wild ride when he and his longtime beach buddies become the unwitting targets of a madman's twisted scheme for revenge. Fortunately, John Ceepak, the cop with a soldier's unshakable code of honor, stays at Danny's side to help him negotiate the quick twists and turns that threaten to destroy his life, his friends, and everything about the world he loves.

Whipping from the boardwalk to the beach and back again, Mad Mouse keeps zigging and zagging at a breakneck pace, all the way to the surprising finish.

Don't miss other adventures featuring Sea Haven's finest, including the first book in the series, Tilt-a-Whirl, and the third, Whack-a-Mole.

LOVE ME SOME CEEPAK AND DANNY!!

This is my second Ceepak and Danny book. I really like the way you get to know the characters in the story. It is very easy to follow. I love mysteries and I was pleasantly surprised with this one. The narrator did such a good job with the voices. I always knew who was speaking. Well worth a credit!

Great listen with a heartwarming hero

This is the 2nd John Ceepak mystery and it's even better than the first as the reader gets to know Ceepak and his sidekick Danny Boyle better. It's nice to have a main character like John Ceepak who really is a "hero" in the traditional sense and not a deeply flawed mess as so many fictional detectives seem to be. The first person narrative of Danny Boyle adds a flavor of small town innocence to the story and the narrator does an excellent job with the voices of the various characters. I'm glad to have discovered this series and just bought Book #3!

MAD MOUSE

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, the characters are hilarious, and the plot was interesting. I liked the way the author integrated Danny's past into the plot, and the 🐷🐷🐷🐷's well what can I say?

What did you like best about this story?

The characters of course! This is a light hearted funny read. If you're looking for anything else it's not here. It's a nice reprieve from all of the serious stuff I usually read. ( my choice of course )πŸ‘™πŸ°πŸ’°πŸ”πŸ˜€

What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

As I have said previously in the review of the first book of this series. He actually gives you an idea of what Danny and Ceepak look like. Plus he's great with the other characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend that you read this series in sequence. You get to know the characters more and more each book. As for the author,"Don't ever change this narrator, he's perfect!" πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€ FUN, EASY READ!

Love these guys!

Mad Mouse is even better than Tilt a Whirl, which was pretty derned good!

While the mysteries seem light-hearted, they're packed with twists, turns, great deduction and character.

Jeff Woodman is one of the finest narrators in the field. His voices are flawless and convincing, even in this story with many characters, most of them women!

Give this series a listen. As for me, I'm off to download Whack a Mole!

I want some scrapple

Raised in New Jersey, I now live in Arizona. These books bring back happy childhood memories of going down the shore with the family. Salt water taffy, miniature golf, fresh seafood. These books are great reading for when I want some light reading, engaging but not overly complex. A good book to take to the beach.
