In Chris Grabenstein's Tilt a Whirl, the first book in the John Ceepak Mystery series, we were introduced to a dynamite team of John Ceepak and Danny Boyle. When Ceepak joined the Sea Haven police department after his tour of duty in Iraq, he was teamed up with his partner, 24-year-old Danny Boyle, his part-time summer cop, who doesn't carry a gun, to work on their first mind-boggling case. A billionaire real estate tycoon was found murdered on the tilt-a-whirl, when he received job offer from his buddy to forget about the horrors of war. It was up to the two of them to find the murderer and why, when Ceepak was the lead for the investigation. When they worked on this case together, it pushed Ceepak's deep sense of humor to the limits as they uncovered twists and turns to discover the truth in every direction.
This was a great introduction to the John Ceepak mystery series. We've gotten to know how Ceepak got the job and partnered with Danny on this shocking murder case. I cared about them from when they first met. I loved the Sea Haven scenic fictional town set on the Jersey shore with vast lovely settings for the location. This has tons of humor and plenty of suspense to keep you reading every page. Great drama, good non-stop action, intrigue, suspense and lots of mystery.
