The Charlie Crawford Palm Beach Mystery Series Publisher's Summary
This audiobook collection includes three novels, Palm Beach Nasty, Palm Beach Poison, and Palm Beach Deadly, featuring the cynically charming and dashing homicide cop Charlie Crawford as he pursues dangerous criminals and colorful characters.
Palm Beach Nasty
Burned out by high-profile murders in New York and his love life splashed all over Page Six, homicide cop Charlie Crawford heads south and signs on with the Palm Beach police department. After months of petty crimes, he's first on the scene to find a man hanging from a banyan tree.
The prime suspects are a hedge fund billionaire with a thing for young girls and a bartender with a sketchy past and a 10-out-of-10 creep factor. Right in the middle of it all is Crawford's girlfriend: a beautiful, conniving gallery owner ready to do whatever it takes to move up a bracket or two. Add to the mix a sultry real estate broker who knows where all the bodies are buried, a gorgeous forensic cop often one step ahead of Crawford, and a Mutt-and-Jeff combo of stone-cold killers.... You've got Palm Beach Nasty.
"Taut and efficient, it's a pleasure to watch craftsmen at work, and that describes the author as well as the cops." (Booklist)
"An entertaining and amusing ride." (Kirkus Reviews)
"Turner's Palm Beach is a blend of desperate criminals, social climbers, merciless billionaires, and surprising heroes." (Publishers Weekly)
Palm Beach Poison
Vasily Zinoviev is the last man on earth you want to say no to. Just ask the "working girl" who suffered a horrible death while skinny-dipping in a pool, one night. Or the president of the prestigious Poinciana Club who’s sorry he ever laid eyes on the ruthless Russian.
Living in a $20 million oceanfront mansion with a harem of mistresses, Vasily and his brother are more than a handful for Palm Beach homicide detective Charlie Crawford. But throw in a vengeful ex-wife, a vicious hit man, and a mysterious tycoon even more diabolical than the Russians, and you have Palm Beach Poison, proclaimed by Kirkus Reviews as a “relentlessly diverting mystery” and “briskly paced fun”.
Palm Beach Deadly
As a talk show host, Knight Mulcahy makes $40 million a year insulting people...until the night he’s found with skivvies around his ankles and a bullet in his heart.
Enter Palm Beach's finest homicide cop Charlie Crawford and Mort Ott, who proceed to go in circles as the suspect list ramps up to double digits. Sin, scandal, murder.... If you’re familiar with Palm Beach Nasty and Palm Beach Poison, you know the drill!
"Deadly delivers an entertaining and amusing ride. Readers who enjoyed the previous two installments will welcome the return of Charlie Crawford, still cynically charming and dashing." (Kirkus Reviews)
