Publisher's Summary

Theres more fireworks down the Jersey shore in Chris Grabenstein's sixth fast-paced John Ceepak mystery, Rolling Thunder.
A prominent citizen suffers a heart attack on opening day of a brand new boardwalk roller coaster in the seedy seaside resort town Sea Haven, New Jersey. Initially ruled a tragic accident, it isnt long before there are suspicious hints of foul play, especially after another dead body is discovered: a stunning young beach beauty.
Fortunately for mystery lovers, the straight-arrow cop John Ceepak and his wise-cracking young partner Danny Boyle are on the case, a detective/sidekick duo critics have compared to Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin.

"Full of unpredictable twists and turns. There's plenty of fizz in the chemistry between the two protagonists to keep the novel and the reader spinning." (Boston Globe)

Very Enjoyable First Audible Book

Picked this out of a list of legal thrillers for my first audible book. I enjoyed the combination of humor and mystery very much. I did not have to concentrate too much on the characters to keep everything straight, so its a good book for a drive in traffic. Very good narration.

Family Dysfunction on the Jersey Shore

A great story about the corruption of money and power and the complications of family. The story climaxes with a surprise ending that is as dramatic as any story in the series. The continued progression of Danny, from immature kid to solid adult cop seems complete.
this story features the O'Malley family. Along with a few other middle-aged men the patriarch of the family is one of the movers and shakers of Seahaven. Their casual use of young women with little going for them but their youth and their bodies is at the center of the story.
The O'Malley family are owners of an amusement park and a miniature golf course; this family is one hot mess. They share all the family warmth and loyalty of scorpions in a fish bowl. Four sons at four different corners of the family and cultural spectrum and a daughter with huge mental and psychological issues; all of whom despise at least one of their parents. this is the family that despite their affluence, no one would want to be a part of.
As always officers Ceepak and Boyle are there at the end save the day. Danny's continued growth is subtly altering the relationship between the two officers. They are growing closer to being real peers. Ceepak is still the driving force of the partnership; but Danny Boyle is becoming more of a real partner in the team. As usual, this is another five star selection. Ceepak and Boyle deliver once again. this is a five star listen.

Chris Grabenstein and Jeff Woodman do it again!

I would love to spend the day in Chris Grabenstein's head, and get to see how ge creates such vivid and true to life characters , locations and situations.

As out there as some of his stories seem. They fit patterns of certain kinds of killers, and are completely true to form.

I cannot get enough of this series! !

Louisa Simpson.
