It’s almost Labor Day, and the end of summer could mean the end of someone’s life in this exciting sequel to Chris Grabenstein’s TILT-A-WHIRL.
Young Danny Boyle, the part-time summer cop “down the shore” in Sea Haven, New Jersey, gets taken on a wild ride when he and his longtime beach buddies become the unwitting targets of a mad-man’s twisted scheme for revenge. Fortunately, John Ceepak, the cop with a soldier’s unshakeable code of honor, stays at Danny’s side to help him negotiate the quick twists and turns that threaten to destroy his life, his friends, and everything about the world he loves.
Whipping from the boardwalk to the beach and back again, MAD MOUSE, like TILT-A-WHIRL, keeps zigging and zagging at a breakneck pace, all the way to the surprising finish.
Kirkus named Mad Mouse one of the ten Best Mysteries of 2006!
