I was given a free copy of this and I am reviewing because of the free copy.
I felt the editing could have been better. Words were missing and a few misspelled words were found. Perhaps because it was an e-book, the editing wasn’t well done.
For me this was way too much like Myron Bolitar and Win. I also didn’t think things were very well defined in the book. Miami just ends up places and you wonder why he made the jump to there. Anyway, that is the way I was reading this. I see retribution for those guys in the book that needed it, like Win does for Myron.
We even had the mob in on this and that didn’t seem to be defined either. We were to assume this?
I am giving this book 3 out of 5 stars. I would have liked more originality. I did like the setting as I do live in Florida. Hopefully the next book will be better and not so much like Harlan Coben.
In short, if you like good detective stories, give this one a chance. Jones is a compelling, fully realized character, his supporting cast is interesting and believable, his wise-cracking is top-notch, the South Florida setting is a ripe one for story-telling and Stewart pulls off this first story in the series as if he has been writing this character for a long time. Great stuff.
A.J. Stewart has constructed a very enjoyable detective novel, based on some people's obsession with college football and a trophy awarded annually. He introduces readers to a hero/detective, Miami Jones who takes on a job of finding a Heisman Trophy stolen from a former footballer named B.J....The former footballer is a bully and a loudmouth. Miami Jones, seemingly like ALL current fictional detectives, is a bit of a smartmouth. (Is it defective or detective?) However Miami is not as endlessly smartass like many detectives. He's actually a pretty sympathetic guy who tried to make it in major league baseball, probably drinks a little too much, and treasures his woman (a Sheriff's deputy). Seems like a good guy, but like ALL fictional detectives, does have the darndest luck.
