Lowcountry Crime is published by Wolf Echo Press and is available here. Individual novellas are available on every ebook platform. I’ve read and enjoyed all three of the other stories. Here’s a rundown:
Trouble Like A Freight Train Coming,
The novella is set in Savannah several years prior to the inheritance of her Atlanta gun shop and her first encounter with security agent Trey Seaver, who ultimately becomes her partner in both romance and crime solving. For readers familiar with the rest of Tai’s adventures, this story is a chance to watch her develop her sleuthing chops. For those meeting Tai for the first time, welcome to her slightly reckless, somewhat hungover, not-quite-respectable world.
Polly: I’ve read a couple of the Tai/Trey books and loved them, so I thoroughly enjoyed this novella. Check out all of Tina’s books.
Blue Nude, by Jonathan M. Bryant introduces us to Brad Sharpe, who has problems. Not just the problems you would expect resulting from traumatic injury and a destructive divorce.
Polly: I found the descriptions of the area fascinating. I didn’t know any of it, and now I want to go exploring. Check out all of Jonathan’s books.
In Low Tide at Tybee, James M. Jackson
Polly: In Jim’s series, which I’ve also read, Seamus is a financial crime investigator, and that opens the door to some interesting stories. Check out all of Jim’s books.
And finally, The Last Heist by yours truly. Coincidentally, my last published novel, Kindle Scout winner, Indiscretion, takes place partly in Charleston, so I resurrected my diamond thief character, Paul Swan, and built the story around him. It takes place pre-Indiscretion while Paul is still active in his not-chosen-but-forced-upon-him profession. You have to read the novel to find out why, but I digress.
Paul Swan travels the world buying exotic automobiles for wealthy clients, but underneath his believable cover is a first-class, never-been-caught diamond thief. When he sees a picture in the Charleston newspaper of a magnificent diamond necklace on the wife of a visiting South American strongman, he can’t resist the temptation to steal it. Paul doesn’t anticipate what he finds in the hotel room’s safe besides the jewels. Now he has to figure out how to stop a political catastrophe without exposing himself as the thief who stole the diamonds, and he has three people complicating his effort: a sexy TV reporter angling for a story, a suspicious cop eager for an arrest, and a rogue mercenary bent on ending his life.

I hope you will enjoy a trip to the lowcountry. Consider the area for your next vacation.
