Author A.J. Stewart and his protagonist, Miami Jones, are rapidly rising in the ranks of my preferred Florida-based author/leading character combinations, which includes the likes of Tim Dorsey/Serge Storms, Randy Wayne White/Doc Ford, and Carl Hiaasen/Skink (Governor Tyree). MJ has his own unique personality and quirks, and brings a different perspective/way of thinking to the crime mystery dynamic table. I haven't really read the books in any order that makes sense, and I'm sorry that I have been skipping around, because I think the character development is interesting enough that it should be followed chronologically. Somehow I am going to find a way to correct that, but my best advice to new readers is that when giving Stewart's Miami Jones series a chance, do yourself a favor and start at the beginning.
Looking forward to more Miami Jones adventures, as I remain grateful for the suggestion to give this series a try.
He does have a love interest Danielle who looks after him. She is a police officer which comes in handy when he needs help.
Miami lives in South Florida which is where I reside so the stories are even better for me for I know all the places he goes
I highly recommend A.J.Stewart's books. They are interesting and his characters are entertaining. You will find yourself laughing at some of Miami Jones thoughts to himself.
I am going to download his next bok.

This time around, we learn more about Ron and Danielle and more about sports, education, politics and the underworld. There's a fine line between pride and intelligence and Offside Trap deftly shows how pride can obliterate that line. Without being judgmental, Stewart tells a story the reader can relate to ... when does pride overtake smart? what is really important to you? when do you cross your own lines?
Stewart is a talented writer; he moves this story along and leaves the reader teetoring on the edge ... do I put the book down and get some sleep or do I keep going on to find out what happens next? It takes a deft hand and a good dialogue to keep a reader so in tune with a fictional character who has suddenly morphed into one of your newest friends. Stewart better not put down his pen ... I want more of Miami Jones!
