Product description

Product Description

The prequel to the USA Today Bestselling Series . . . the perfect place to start the Miami Jones adventures


Still Waters Run . . . Deadly

Sailing the Caribbean is every yacht owner's dream. Azure waters, golden sunshine and warm winds greet sailors in every port. But that dream is shattered when one boat returns from a race without its captain. The story is that the skipper fell overboard, but the clues point to something much more sinister and one of the crew is arrested. And that crew member happens to be a friend of Miami Jones.

Miami and his mentor Lenny Cox turn their sights on the rest of the crew, and run up against a prosecutor looking to prove himself in the job, a crew with more secrets than J. Edgar Hoover, and an ex-wife waiting for the insurance payday of a lifetime.

This sea adventure sees Miami venture from Palm Beach to the Florida Keys, in a sailing mystery where suspects shift like the winds.

By Jeff - Published on Amazon.com

A.J. Stewart has written another very enjoyable book that I can safely recommend to my mother and any of my friends who enjoy mysteries. Without resorting to gratuitous sex, violence or cliches, he's written a mystery that makes you think, laugh, cringe and probably cry.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Like it, I love it, I want some more of it... 10 October 2015
By Linda Thinks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am total fan of A.J. Stewart and his Miami Jones series. I love the characters, the settings and all the surprises along the way. My complaint is that I am guaranteed a sleepless night every time I download the books to my kindle.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crash Tack - What a Read! 20 October 2015
By TCertain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you have never read A.J. Steward, you will enjoy his writing. It is light reading and usually error-free for the most part.
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).
5.0 out of 5 stars Love Miami Jones 3 November 2015
By Windu - Published on Amazon.com

This is the third Miami Jones novel that I have read. All have been very exciting and have a lot of twists and turns. Miami is a very skilled and resourceful private detective. He is very true to his friends and associates.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ranks with the best Florida crime authors! 9 March 2016
By Michael Morgan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am always searching for the next great Florida crime series, and after a few setbacks, I have found it! Miami Jones has all the required elements, and none of the unbelievable aspects that I find in many stories out there. Jones is real, he makes mistakes, and we get to be inside his head through it all. There is just enough cynicism in his world view to make it interesting, without making him too hard boiled. The characters are not one dimensional, and I love how a little more is revealed about many of the secondary players in each novel, as well as the developing relationship between Miami and Danielle.

Only complaint is I discovered him too soon, so there were not enough books yet!
