Offside Trap by AJ Stewart

READ THE BLURB


A university president with delusions of grandeur. A property developer with mob ties. A crooked politician fast-tracking projects for cash. Just another day in South Florida.
When Miami Jones is hired by an old college friend to investigate the drug overdose of a star student-athlete, he is thrust into the dark intersection of academia, politics and the Miami drug world, where he finds himself fighting to not just solve the crime, but to save those he loves most.
If you love Florida mysteries, Florida fiction or just crazy men's adventure novels, you'll love South Florida's new favorite detective in Offside Trap.

MY REVIEW

Offside Trap is a story about a private investigator Miami Jones who is called in by an old friend to investigate a drug overdose incident at their university. As Miami Jones carries out his investigation, he gets caught up in a situation that jeopardizes his and his loved ones lives.

The writing was good and the characters were well developed. The story line was OK though the pacing was a little slow initially, and I didn't get hooked until I was at least half-way into the book. The other half kept me reading and wanting more because of the twists to the story.

Overall, this was a good read, and I would recommend it to anyone who's looking forward to reading a good detective story. 


4/5 stars
