Being a cop on the Jersey Shore has its ups and downs in a series that's "far more than a beach-book romp. Taut and satisfying crime fiction" (Booklist). A prominent citizen suffers a heart attack on the 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 isn't long before there are suspicious hints of foul play-especially after the corpse of a stunning young beach beauty is discovered. Fortunately for mystery lovers, the straight-arrow cop John Ceepak and his wisecracking young partner Danny Boyle are on the case, a detective/sidekick duo critics have compared to Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin.
