This book was a solid 3.5 stars for me

High Lie was a very fast paced mystery which I found to be a very easy read. Miami Jones is a retired pro baseball player turned private PI with a vast number of friends/sidekicks. The book starts out with Lucas, Miami's Australian kick ass friend/sometimes third partner who helps out on the PI jobs along with Miami's real partner Ron before leaving to go back to managing his Marina job; saving a little boy from being drowning by some real bad guys. I found this beginning a little hard to take because the violence was fine but for these guys to go to such extremes to kill a young child over such a small amount of money seemed a too much for me.

However, the book gets going really fast as I stated in the beginning. The book is told in first person from Miami's point of view, but it felt more that Miami was telling a story than Miami actually being a part of the story for me. I am very visual and like to picture everything going on in a book but I never got a clear picture of even what everyone looked like, only a vague impression idea. I also felt like the book jumped from one thing to another without really explaining how they got there but as I read on I felt that it was the author's style or writing and I got use to it.

This book is actually one a series but you don't need to start at the beginning unless you're a person that needs to read in order you will be just fine starting here.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the second Miami Jones mystery book I have read and I have another waiting. I just love the characters. 26 Oct. 2015
By Windu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Miami Jones is a smart and cunning private investigator. He gets himself into unbelievable risky spots but conquers them with ease.
She has a beautiful girlfriend who is a cop and gives him support as he endeavors to help his clients.
Her Ex husband is a DA so there are a few tense encounters with him.
Miami has a partner who is quite a character and a assistant who won't take anything from anybody.
The setting is South Florida where I live so I recognize all the places they go.
Highly recommended the books, light easy reading and you will find yourself laughing at some of the scenarios.

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's a terrific, fast-paced series of South Florida thrillers. 30 April 2015
By K. Mitnick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sometimes I just want to kick back with a fun read. Pretty often, that means a thriller with a Florida detective - most often a private one. There are a bunch of them to choose from. You can find some fun reads with quite a few good writers who fit the bill. Writers like the one I'm going to refer to here - A.J. Stewart. His creation Miami Jones, a former baseball player turned private investigator in South Florida, is the main character in a terrific series of books including "High Lie", a play on the words Jai Alai, the South Florida parimutuel-betting game with hard hitting, high flying Latino players.

This story is about 300 pages of fast moving action with Miami Jones interacting all over South Florida with Seminole Tribe gambling executives and the whole cast of hangers-on and lowlifes surrounding the gambling business. Good guys, bad guys, cops and pawn shop owners are among the long list of people Jones works with and against as he finds himself getting involved with some pretty tough players.

High-flying casino executives from all over the world who just want more and more of a piece of the Florida gambling pie will get Jones stuck in the middle of their greedy plans. And Miami Jones will find himself getting some help from an Aussie tough guy who's only too happy to be a part of the action.

This very fast-paced book will be right at home as you pop open another beer with a slice of lime and find yourself wishing your reading speed was faster so that you can enjoy the next action filled chapter. Lots of good looking men and women enjoying each other as the ugly bad guys try to take their share of the money flying around in the gambling venues where all the action takes place.

You'll find the whole series of Miami Jones books by A.J. Stewart thoroughly enjoyable as each subsequent volume fills the hours of reading time you make available for yourself. Have fun with these books. I sure do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Take a swing at south Florida's gambling scene 22 Feb. 2015
By Charles A. Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When PI Miami Jones’ friend Lucas fishes a kid out of the water after he’s been tossed there by two roughnecks from a local gambling establishment, things get nasty. Miami learns that the kid, Desi, a young Cuban, was trying to earn money to get his father from Cuba to Florida, but was cheated. He, Lucas, and his sometimes girlfriend, Danielle, who happens to be a deputy sheriff, are determined to make things right for Desi. In the process of doing so, Miami finds himself immersed in the world of gambling, as toughs from all over face off for a chunk of the gambling revenue in south Florida.
High Lie by A. J. Stewart is the third in the Miami Jones Florida series, featuring former baseball player turned private eye Miami Jones. I received a free copy of this book for review.
Stewart, who writes in a style reminiscent of Elmore Leonard, paints a vivid and accurate picture of the world of legal gambling, especially the pari-mutuel scene involving jai alai (pronounced ‘high-lie’), and what can happen when money and the greed for money trump public interest. A cast of believable characters inhabiting a world so realistic you can smell the sweat of the jai alai players and hear the raucous cry of the Everglades water fowl.
This is a great weekend read that shouldn’t be missed. Stewart gets better with each book.

5.0 out of 5 stars How High the Lie. 17 Feb. 2017

Miami, Ron, Danielle and Lucas make a great team facing the mob and casino bosses on Palm Beach. The story has pathos, drama and humour. Above all, it is told by a master story-teller who writes very well indeed. Definitely worth the read.
