    Easy read Crawford and his partner Ott are in sync. They're on the trail of a killer that's leaving dead women posed like paintings. The killer is smart, and determined not to get caught.

But in this case it didn't matter. This is a fun, police procedural series set in Palm Beach Florida. Our hero is a New York cop who left the Big Apple for the the warmth of south Florida where he gets a job with Palm Beach PD. In this book he and his partner Ott, another snowbird from Cleveland, are dealing with a strange set of murders where the dead are posed like famous paintings. It is a complex and interesting case and the victims are real estate agents which is the main business of Palm Beach. So why only 4 stars? (view spoiler)[ The main suspect was paroled from prison. This means he would be under the control and care of the Probation officer who he would need to check in with. further it would be illegal for him to possess a gun OR Ammo. So when someone tells them he has a gun he uses to shoot at squirrels they could have immediately had grounds for arrest. In Florida (and I know this from watching Live PD) a parolee has to keep the state up to date on his address so once he moved the Probation department could have issued a warrant. while the cops keep going to the prison he was paroled from they never go to the probation department. Also the realtors keep complaining to the police that they feel unsafe and want protection but do nothing to protect themselves. I am not talking arming themselves I am talking common sense stuff like no going to a house alone, keeping someone apprised of their locations, using a live app to 'broadcast' their locations (hide spoiler)]

    I won the e-book "Palm Beach Predator" by Tom Turner through a Goodreads contest. This was the first of the Palm Beach books I have read, and I thought it very enjoyable. The two primary characters, Crawford and Ott, detectives in the PBPD were interesting characters, their dialog often funny. The colorful setting of Palm Beach, Florida, with its expensive homes and flashy lifestyle was far different from the usual "mean streets" of most cop/ Private Eye thrillers.

The colorful setting of Palm Beach, Florida, with its expensive homes and flashy lifestyle was far different from the usual "mean streets" of most cop/ Private Eye thrillers. But people do murders even in three-million dollar homes. The author , Tom Turner, not only gave the reader interesting characters, but also a good plot, one which he kept moving. Crawford and Ott went through all the usual paces of an investigation, with some time aside for personal connections and some cop banter to lighten the grim search for a multiple killer who posed his victims like subjects in famous paintings. An ingenious plot device, and one which led to his capture. "Palm Beach Predator" is the sixth of the series and good enough to put the books on my wish list. Give them a try, I am sure you will enjoy them. There was nothing offensive in the book.

    If a thrilling whodunit is your delight, this book (as the others are) is for you. Although I encourage you to pick up all of these books, this book does just fine as a standalone. No spoilers, however, you need to know that the characters and stories are so well developed, you will have no problem just diving right in where ever you elect to start! So, why not here? Charlie Crawford is the main character and completely likable as the homicide cop on the case.

    (2 1/2). This was better than I anticipated. Nothing extraordinary, just a rock solid, detective based mystery with a good protagonist (Charlie Crawford), a reasonable story and a couple of minor twists and turns. Peeling back the layers and poor Charlie trying to keep up is the key to it all. A needed decision between two very desirable women keeps him well distracted as he tries to get to the bottom of this series of mudders.

    One of the best police detective mysteries I have ever read. It was a pleasure not to see police detectives depicted as bumbling idiots who don't care who they charge just to get an arrest. It was a great book and I loved Charlie and Ott - they were real and acted real. My only disappointment was that Cotton was taken alive, giving him another chance to put on his "gentle soul" act and, in any way, secure his freedom and resume his killing spree.

    I found this tale to be mildly entertaining and the characters were entertaining enough to keep me reading. While I am curious as to who Charlie ultimately ends up with in future books, Dominica or Rose - it was not enough to make me want to read the previous books in the series, nor purchase the next one. To be honest, I've always wondered how it is that there has not been a lot of this kind of crime in big cities - targeting realtors - kind of scary actually.

    Decent police procedural, but I got a bit tired of some of the characters & characterizations. Crawford & Ott are transplants from big cities to Palm Beach/West Palm Beach. Crawford dates a realtor who has a lot more money and standing than he does. Somebody is killing realtors and Crawford & Ott have a lot of suspects. There's a lot of dancing around, discussion of food, and gossipy characterizations of stereotypes. Decent police procedural, but I got a bit tired of some of the characters & characterizations.

    #5 in cookie-cutter style Well, Crawford and Ott do it again. And again. A good story about 2 transplanted big city cops in ritzy Palm Beach solving murders among the rich and not-so-famous. Turner's fifth book in the series has that cookie-cutter feel: 2 murders, multiple suspects, greedy and lustful rich people who make their own rules. #5 in cookie-cutter style Well, Crawford and Ott do it again.

    Boring and predictable this book follows two transplanted Mutt & Jeff detectives as they try to solve a series of perplexiong homicides. Someone is targeting female real estate agents and posnig their naked bodies in scenes replicating artisitic masterpieces. Despite a few mildly humourous moments the writing is flat.The charactrers are cardboard and the book lacks suspense.

    Good murder mystery. Two cops trying to figure out who is murdering, then posing, female real estate agents. Good story includes dirtbags, other cops, real estate agents, chief of police, state prison prisoners and wardens, etc etc. This one moves along at a good pace. And our lead detective needs to decide who he loves the most. Enjoy it.

    Sleeper slooowwww! No real action or drama. Very predictable with characters that are forgettable. I also hate that he uses "GD" throughout the book. While I am definitely no prude when it comes to cursing, the use of this particular word is very offensive to me.....too many other words you could use instead of the Lord's name in vain. Just my honest opinion! Sleeper slooowwww! No real action or drama. Very predictable with characters that are forgettable. I also hate that he uses "GD" throughout the book.

    Superior Writing If you enjoy reading a good book on a sunny beach or beside a fireplace in the middle of winter, this author is the right choice. A well thought out plot, engaging dialog between two detectives, and the draw of two lovely ladies all make for a good read.

    Fast-paced detective story Palm Beach is a great place for crimes of every flavor. Murder is to be expected and Crawford and his partner Ott are on the case. The pressure comes from high end Realtors who demand results before their business suffers.

    Easy Read with a little Fun Attractive story line. As story progress, the writing style and the character development are getting a little boring, pretentious, predictive, not creative. Don’t like a male Stephanie Plums.

    A good story This is a good story with not a lot of action. More of a procedural story than an action and adventure that I was looking for. Some interesting characters and overall a good story.

    Too rich for me. Ultra rich people combined with murder. Hard defective work plus some luck brought the suspect list down until the very end. Not what the detectives were thinking.

    A good page turner There were so many possible perpetrators in the story that you really had to pay attention as the tale unfolded. You found out about the clues at the same pace as the police so I felt involved. I will read more from this author

    Finally, a crime scene with a clue And Charlie Crawford continues his wining and dining womanizing ways with the willing lasses - maybe. This one ends on a romantic cliff-hanger, but not a criminal one.
