Grabenstein won the Anthony Award for “Best First Mystery” in 2006 for his debut TILT A WHIRL—the first in a series of John Ceepak stories to be set “Down the Shore” in a New Jersey tourist town called Sea Haven.
The second book, MAD MOUSE, was called one of the “Ten Best Mysteries of 2006” by Kirkus, the American book review journal. WHACK A MOLE came out to great critical acclaim in 2007. The New York Daily News called the fourth Ceepak book, HELL HOLE, a “must-read.” The fifth book in the series MIND SCRAMBLER was published by St. Martin’s Minotaur in 2009. ROLLING THUNDER, available in 2010, rounds out the first Ceepak six pack.
