The John Ceepak Jersey Shore mysteries, by Chris Grabenstein

The John Ceepak mysteries show us the seedy side of the Jersey Shore, which is refreshing for those who might be leery of all the nostalgia and warm fuzzies that come with books set in classic American amusement parks.

The first book in the series, Tilt-a-Whirl, is everything you’d want from a mystery: a billionaire, a kidnapping, and plenty of Bruce Springsteen references.
