Miami Jones is forced to use his unrefined, but rapidly improving, investigative skills to try to prove his friend and partner, Ron, is not guilty of murdering a yacht owner during a regatta. That murder investigation uncovers a smuggling scheme and other murders that threaten Miami's life and the lives of his partners.
I normally prefer action and dialogue over descriptive narrative in mysteries. A. J. Stewart's descriptions of the people and scenery of south Florida is refreshing and new and makes me pause to think about what he's said. However, this isn't a book of poetry. There is plenty of action and very good dialogue.
My usual disclaimer is I reserve five stars for something that has won, or might win, a Pulitzer. However, the four stars I give Crash Tack means I highly I highly recommend it.
One of the things I enjoy is the way the characters behave in ways that you would not expect yet make sense. This book is not without some technical errors, but I admit it does not take away from enjoyment for me cause I just get too caught up in everything going on.
It is very satisfying to finally be there with Miami as so many of the events happen...the ones that shape his life and are referred back to in the other books ( that take place later in his life). I know that is unclear, but have no idea how to fix it. What I'm trying to say is that I've read all his other books, they take place later in his life and refer back to the events that actually take place in Crash Tack. Now, finally, I know the whole story. YAY!
On that note, I end. Just read it.
My review of Crash Tack:
Ok, my first thought is - everything in this book involves my old stomping grounds. Namely the Florida coast from Jupiter to Ft. Lauderdale and west to, well the other coast really.
So everytime a town or the name of a road comes up, I am saying to myself, I know where that is!
This makes this book a little more realistic to me, but probably not to anyone else who has never been to Florida. But regardless of this fact, it was a typical Miami Jones adventure. Like all my reviews, I refuse to give away any of the adventures throughout the book.
I will say that it was a great light read and had all of Miami Jones characters in it again, but sadly one of the characters will die (not telling which one).
There is a start of a budding romance in this one. She is a sheriff officer so they can be of help to each other. I would say she is the aggressor but Miami doesn't see to mind at all.
I live in South Florida and can relate to all the places he travels. I really enjoy that.
I am going to download another.
Only complaint is I discovered him too soon, so there were not enough books yet!
