About the Book
Burned out New York homicide cop, Charlie Crawford, goes south to take it slow and ends up in steamy Palm Beach, Florida. But after six months of pink and green collar crime, he’s bored out of his mind, desperate for a face-down stiff with a little rigor setting in. Palm Beach has plenty of glitz, glam and hedonism, but murder– not one in the last ten years.
Finally one Halloween night, Crawford is first on scene and finds a twenty year old male swinging from a stately banyan tree. That sets in motion colliding plots involving a billionaire with a thing for young girls, a far-reaching art scam with Crawford’s girlfriend playing a starring role and a ruthless hustler passing himself off as the long lost son of one of the richest men in town. Add to the mix, a sultry real estate broker who knows where all the bodies are buried, a gorgeous forensic cop usually one step ahead of Crawford, a Mutt and Jeff combo of stone cold killers and you’ve got Palm Beach Nasty.
Fast-paced, funny, slightly off-kilter and everything you ever wanted to know about the most scandalous town in America and its larger-than-life citizens.
Praise for Palm Beach Nasty
“…[a] taut, efficient procedural.…Charlie and his colleagues are a funny, agreeable bunch, and the villains are suitably villainous. It’s a pleasure to watch craftsmen at work, and that describes the author as well as his cops.”—Booklist
“. . . an engaging mystery that will keep readers turning the pages. Readers get a look into the lifestyles of the rich and famous and how crime works when those involved have millions to protect or lose.”—Booksie’s Book Blog
