    I love the character, Miami Jones. I have read the whole series and I’ve never been disappointed. This one didn’t disappoint either. It’s a light-hearted story of PI, Miami Jones, hired to find out who’s threatening the #1 draft pick of the WNBA. Miami’s private life is always interesting. I recommend.

    Miami needs no introduction. He is hired to basically be a body guard for a young basketball player. She is being pressed to sign a WNBA contract and the hangers on are coming out of the woodwork. None of them seem to know that, even top professional women players don't get a pittance compared to their male counter parts. If you know Miami, you know that nothing is as easy as it looks. Her parents are being threatened if she doesn't sign the contract, and most of the people that are supposed to Miami needs no introduction.

Miami has very little time to separate the wheat from the weeds. Another totally enjoyable Miami Jones adventure!

    This was another great Miami Jones novel from A.J. Stewart. Miami is hired by Detective Ronzoni to watch over a young gal who’s selected in the draft for the WNBA and is getting threats. In this one, Miami has lots of possibilities as to who’s behind them. In the end, he cleverly figures it out, does a little soul searching himself, along with helping guide a few of the young people. You even see another side to Ronzoni. Who knew? As always, I did enjoy Miami, his dry wit, and his ever evolving This was another great Miami Jones novel from A.J. Stewart.

    Basic Miami Jones novel from Stewart. There are several trails in the mystery, most of them false but they leave the reader something to contemplate while enjoying the plot. Stewart also has Jones moralizing with several of the characters involved, including himself. As with most of Stewart's MJ novels, this one is a stand alone (other than the relationship with Danielle) and doesn't require reading the previous 10.

    Good book I like these books. They are interesting and entertaining. The character development is very good. The stories are different from the normal ones, making the books very enjoyable. I hope there are more to come in this series.

    Another great book. I love the series. I did miss more interaction with the other regulars. I look forward to Act 2. Can we get lucas back into things since he will be closer to MJ and D. Utalize the office manager in this expansion of the business.

    A life lesson and a story all in one. I have enjoyed the Miami Jones series for awhile now, but this may be my favorite one yet. A life lesson and a story. What could be better?
