For anyone who has read any of the earlier Miami Jones books, this fills a bit of this missing backstory. Miami returns to his former home town to help out his former coach who has been duped out of his retirement savings, and in true Miami fashion, he's the man to save the day. As always, it isn't just Miami himself who is saving the day, it's the great array of characters who contribute their bit.
This was a slightly darker Miami Jones story but handled really well. There is still some of the trademark humour, but it is muted to match the story being told and it is delivered perfectly. What I find really enjoyable is that AJ Stewart has very adeptly shown the growth in Miami from one book to the next. There is still the same character, but as with real life, he has learnt from his past and that shapes who he is and who he is becoming.
As with other Miami Jones books, the worst part is realising that you have to wait for the next installment. If only there were three or four per year.
