    1. Reading Jeff Shelby is like spending a day on the beach with your best friend who you secretly think is way cooler than you'll ever be. Reviewing KILLER SWELL makes you want to turn a surfing phrase a hundred times more clever than any surfing phrase that has come before, but then you think, "Ah, I better avoid the temptation - don't want to sound too cheesy here." But then you're like, "Aw, man, I've already likened reading Jeff Shelby to spending a day on the beach with your best friend who yo [...]

    2. I had to start this one twice--combination of 1st person POV & a rocky first page or two--but once it took off, it really took off. On the down side, there's a tendency toward contrivance in order to move the plot along, but I also really enjoyed the dialogue and characters. I'll be looking for more by this author

    3. "We drove south on the five, past Lindbergh Field, the ancient El Cortez Hotel and Balboa Park, home to most of San Diego's cultural activities. We moved by the on-ramp to the Coronado Bridge and then through the industrial grounds of National City and Imperial Beach to the last U.S. exit in San Ysidro."Jeff Shelby's "Killer Swell" (2005) relies on prose like the fragment shown above in its attempts to convincingly situate the plot in San Diego. This beautiful city has been my home for the last [...]

    4. I’m always thrilled when I find a first novel, particularly one in a series, and this book was worth checking out. Its protagonist is Noah Braddock, a not-overly-ambitious private eye who lives in San Diego and loves to surf. Though he did hit the waves a couple of times, the surfing aspect had very little to do with the story, other than helping to define Noah’s character.Noah is shocked when the mother of his high school girlfriend shows up and asks him to find her. Noah and Kate Crier had [...]

    5. After predominantly reading big(ger) name authors, I decided to try something a little off the rez. This debut by Jeff Shelby was pretty good. It was another page from the Spenser book, with the protagonist (Noah Braddock) being an easy going private eye with a strange, tough as nails sidekick. The setting is San Diego, and Noah does his fair share of surfing. As a guy familiar with the beach and its lifestyle, Shelby nailed the surfing scenes and the general vibe of the coast. You can see what [...]

    6. Reading this book was a lot like watching one of those 80's cop shows. This could have been an episode of Simon & Simon or Vegas. It has it all, cool private detective main character, lovable sidekick, hot girlfriend, lost love, femme fatale, tough but fair policeman, drug dealers and lots of quirky characters. It's an easy read. Not a lot of mystery here. You'll have it figured out long before the final page but its still lots of fun.I loved those old 80's shows. I'll tune in again and look [...]

    7. I'm not entirely sure how I found this book but the author hooked me early on and built an enjoyable cast of characters that I'm anxious to learn more about in future books. The protagonist is a youngish PI who lives a few blocks from the beach (easy hook for me) in San Diego. He's a surfer as you might have guessed from the cover. I'm not, but I enjoyed the surfing bits. The mystery, built around a lost love from high school kept me interested. Noah's a cool guy and I want to read more.

    8. A welcome combination of place-based mystery and laid-back brain candy. A lot like reading a hot tub. I liked that the main character's personal life is a mess and he appears grudgingly incapable of fixing it then makes it worse. I love Carter, and there is serious bromance going on. Lots of great place descriptions, good pacing and a half dozen times I laughed out loud.

    9. First of the series I have read. The writing, plot , and characters were all adequately done. More a police procedural than a thriller There are are no glaring deficiencies. It was faithful to the genre. It is not particularly dark, and there is little here to offend The writing is not particularly witty. I would recommend this book to those with an interest in stories set in San Diego.

    10. Easy to read, flows well. Story about a poor boy rejected by a rich girl and her family. When she disappears, they hire him (now a PI) to find her. Story about very dysfunctional family, and how sometimes, we hang on to things that are not real.

    11. After having lived in San Diego and wishing I was still there this book took me back. For that reason it was a fun read for me as I have been to all those places. It was a little far fetched in some places but all in all a good read. I will read the following two books by this author.

    12. Loved the book - first time I read this author and will definitely read more from him. The character was likable and you wanted to know more about Noah and Carter. Thought the story line was engaging - couldn't put it down - great entertainment!

    13. by the title you would think this book may be wierd but I loved it and the sequel to it wicked break and wish another edition to this series would come out

    14. It was a fun read. A PI who is a surf bum. Pretty much says it all. Just an entertaining read. Language is a little rough but so are the characters.

    15. Murder, mystery, romance and humor are combined with a fun and fact filled tour of San Diego (along with a little TJ and LA)for a very good read! I'll look for more adventures of P.I Noah Braddock.

    16. This is the second book I've read written by Jeff Shelby. I love his style of writing. And? I have a crush on Noah. I'm looking forward to reading the next book.

    17. Excellent PI storyt book by this author! The characters were rich and the story compelling. A real page turnerexcellent writing for a detective novel. Such fun reading!
