    Great read.. OK, let me start by saying I almost didn’t get this book because of the name. Usually if a book has the word “nasty” in it nine out of ten times it’s an erotic book, or porn. But I decided to go with it since it was called a Charlie Crawford Mystery. I admit I was confused for a while, wondering why Nick was even part of this book since he didn’t have a thing to do with the dead guy, Darryl Bill, or any bad guy. But then later on he was mixed into the story and I was no longer confus Great read.. OK, let me start by saying I almost didn’t get this book because of the name.

I admit I was confused for a while, wondering why Nick was even part of this book since he didn’t have a thing to do with the dead guy, Darryl Bill, or any bad guy. But then later on he was mixed into the story and I was no longer confused, I was excited to see what would happen next to all the players. The bad guy, Jaynes, was some kind of idiot. He was a Billionaire and too stupid not to kill someone? Unbelievable!! And the other two were only interested in killing to make a name for themselves. Oh, and there was Nick, too. He just thought way too much of himself. I did like the main players, though: Charlie, Dominica, Ott and Misty. The boss was somewhat of an idiot. BUT I loved Alcie. He was an awesome character. There was no sex in this book, (so it wasn’t “Nasty,”) and the F-bomb was used 65 times. The word “said” was used 885 times in this 288 page book, that’s a lot. But other words were used enough for it not to be quite so annoying. As to the narration: Hmmm…I liked him a lot then I didn’t like him at all. His men’s voices were simply fabulous but his women’s weren’t worth a damn. Fortunately, there weren’t’ that many women in the book. I would definitely listen to him again.

    A fun read. More than just a police detective story. This one is full of secondary characters that really enhance the story. Con men, killers, old society women looking for love. It has it all. Enjoyable.

    Skip it! This book was boring until about three fourths of the way. Then it picked up and had a nice ending. The thing that really ruined it was all the f bombs. One is too many but this was ridiculous. I think that is the only word Ott knew. Can't somebody write a book without profanity? Skip it! This book was boring until about three fourths of the way.

    A fun & light read Having just finishing a autobiography, was looking for some lighter fare. This really fit the bill, was able to raise a few chuckles.

    Exciting I was gripped through out. Glad the bad guy got his comeuppance. Plenty of twists and turns with both past history and what is happening now to the lead of the book. Looking forward to reading book 2.

    This was much better than expected. There seems to be a glut of less than stellar mysteries set in Florida and, in particular, the Keys. But NASTY rose above. No trashy sunbathing nymphs or beer-slugging bar beach goers. It had good plots - not just one - and good characters. Not cardboard cutouts, I expect them to develop and I look forward to reading the next in the series.

    The two cops who comprise the entire homicide division of the Palm Beach Police Department are both refugees from other venues: Charlie Crawford, a 36-year-old former “hero cop” from New York City, 6’ 2” and 180, and Mort Ott, described as a 51-year old homicide cop who looks 10 years older, 5’ 7” and 230 pounds, who for 23 years had been with the Cleveland P.D. Couldn’t be more different from each other, though they make for perfect partners, and work together like cogs in a well-oiled wheel. Ch The two cops who comprise the entire homicide division of the Palm Beach Police Department are both refugees from other venues: Charlie Crawford, a 36-year-old former “hero cop” from New York City, 6’ 2” and 180, and Mort Ott, described as a 51-year old homicide cop who looks 10 years older, 5’ 7” and 230 pounds, who for 23 years had been with the Cleveland P.D. Couldn’t be more different from each other, though they make for perfect partners, and work together like cogs in a well-oiled wheel. Charlie is used to the hustle and bustle, not to say murder and mayhem, of New York, where he solved at least a couple of very newsworthy cases, and he finds the change a bit boring: “Palm Beach probably had fewer than twenty homicides in its entire recorded history”. As the book opens, however, he “finally (!) had himself a murder,” when he is called to the scene of a 19-year-old young man, pictured on the book cover showing just his legs from the knees down, dressed in black jeans and sneakers, which we soon find is his dead body, hanging from a banyan tree. And very soon after, there is another homicide, which has Charlie thinking “Two murders in a week in Palm Beach, after having gone fifteen years homicide-free,” but “I’ve never had two cases with so few suspects . . . ever.” We are told quite a lot about the rich and famous who live in Palm Beach, “one of the richest towns in America,” and a glimpse of how they got that way Twenty-six-year-old Todd Tropez (born “Gonczik” and raised in Mineola, Long Island, a suburb of NYC, and now calling himself Nick Greenleaf) is a charming bartender with much higher aspirations. Those aspirations form the basis for much of the terrific plot. Though there is, obviously, violence in these pages, they contain a wonderful core of humor, and very well-drawn characters, including a few complex females about whom the reader is ambivalent. Although it took me much longer than it should have liked to pick up this first book by Tom Turner, it was perfect timing – couldn’t have asked for a better late Summer “beach read” which I finished in a little over 24 hours! Happily, I have the sequel, Palm Beach Poison, to look forward to, as well as his most recent novel, Killing Time in Charleston – I have no doubt they will be as thoroughly enjoyable as Palm Beach Nasty, which is highly recommended.

    Fun and easy to read, somewhat predictable, but still entertaining... I enjoyed the flow of the story, the knowledge of location made the story seem more compelling and believable. (I would like to see more descriptive sex... of course) I thought the author, Tom Turner, kind of wrapped up the loose ends rather quickly. Seemed like he had a great story but didn't finish with a great ending. I will read the next book in the series (It starts with snakes)!

When 16 year-old hooker 'Misty's' pimp brother Darryl turns up very publicly dead hanging from a banyan tree, Crawford and Ott are soon hot on the trail of the killer. Using Misty's older 'half-sister' Jennifer - newbie officer Dominica, undercover - as bait in a blackmail sting operation puts both girls in danger from the stop-at-nothing paedophile, while Crawford and Ott keep a close ear on the bug Dominica uses to incriminate the villain and his thugs. Meanwhile, wanna-be master-crook 'Nick Greenleaf', a young man who changes his name like the seasons to avoid detection, implements his latest sting, in concert with Crawford's 'ex', art-dealer (and part-time hooker), Lil, by assuming the identity of Avery, dying millionaire Spence Roberts' long-absent grandson. Once established he starts selling off some of his 'Grandfather's' Old Masters paintings through Lil's gallery, before it becomes necessary to adapt his plan as circumstances change. This excellent police procedural moves along at a cracking pace, with engaging characters in the three detectives and a wealth of luxury scenarios, compared and contrasted skillfully with the seamy underbelly of the paradise world of the rich and famous - I loved it and you will too...tell all your friends and get your copy today!

    Charlie Crawford retired from the NYPD at 36 and left New York because he was tired of the daily mayhem. He moved to the sunshine state, Florida, to Palm Beach, to be exact. He was ready to live the good life, but, much to his chagrin, he soon realized that the good life was a boring life. He soon discovered that he missed the madness and mayhem. He wanted to get back in the action and hired on with the Palm Beach PD.

He moved to the sunshine state, Florida, to Palm Beach, to be exact. He was ready to live the good life, but, much to his chagrin, he soon realized that the good life was a boring life. He soon discovered that he missed the madness and mayhem. He wanted to get back in the action and hired on with the Palm Beach PD. Compared to police work in the Big Apple, police work in Palm Springs was pretty routine and pretty boring too…at least it was until a jogger discovered a body hanging from a tree. Palm Springs hadn’t had a murder in years, but it wasn’t long after that first dead body was discovered that another one was discovered. Charlie was back in his element. As Charlie and his partner, Detective Ott, investigates the murders they find themselves butting heads with one of Palm Springs riches, most powerful men, who makes it his goal in life to destroy Charlie before he can get enough proof to arrest him for the murder. The murderer is also a pedophile, and when one of his victims steps to be a witness against him, he hires two heavy hitters to take her and her “Big Sister” out. Let’s just say that things didn’t go according to plan and Charlie takes him down, but you’re going to read this brilliant book for yourself to see how that came about. I will not say anymore about that and spoil the book for you.

    I mainly read this because I used to live in West Palm Beach and know Palm Beach pretty well. It's always nice to be familiar with the setting of a book, see what local stuff gets mentioned and how they try to change or disguise some locations. Overall, not a bad book, a basic detective story set in the world of the rich and famous. The book uses one of the devices I hate in TV & books, that police detectives "transfer" from one department to another and keep their status as detectives.

The book uses one of the devices I hate in TV & books, that police detectives "transfer" from one department to another and keep their status as detectives. In real life, if you move from one PD to another, you start over as a uniformed officer and work your way up. If departments brought in outsiders to fill detective and other specialized slots, there would be no reason for their uniformed officers to have any motivation. Generally, the only time someone can keep their rank/position is in the higher command positions. A new chief will sometimes bring in people they know from their old department or other departments and have them be a deputy chief, assistant chief, etc. Those few command positions are generally not covered by civil service, so they can appoint people. All in all, I'd probably read another book in this series, if I got it cheap and had nothing else to read at the time.

    I do not endorse addiction to anything. But with Thom Turner’s Palm Beach series, all eight of them, I say buy all of them immediately. Each of these fine, comical, highly entertaining procedurals are outstanding and memorable. Once you meet Charlie, Mort, and the rest of the well-delineated characters, you will do what I did and hope wildly for more Palm Beach novels.

I do have good news – I understand that another book is on the way and perhaps even a new series. Stand by, but first, buy all of the Palm Beach books.

    ANOTHER AWESOME READ!! As I was Born and raised in Palm Beach County, I know, most of the locations in these books!! I also, worked for many years, as a Bartender there. These stories, remind me of stories, I heard, from friends, who were Deputies for PBSO. Crawford and Ott are on the lookout for the people responsible for the hanging death of a boy. Who was found, hanging from a Banyan tree. In the hunt for the murderer, they also find out, that stolen paintings are involved. A fast paced read!!

    Fun, fast reading Charlie Crawford is a Palm Beach homicide detective. He moved there after attracting too much attention in New York. A young man is found hanging from a tree in a local park and he and his partner are assigned the case. Their investigation leads them to local billionaires, art dealers, a CSI who really wants to be a cop, hired help and assorted other miscreants. It is fun reading and very visually written. It’s a great way to spend a weekend.

    Good Read I gave this first in a series a four because the author hit all the requisites...well-developed, likeable characters, concise writing, good plot and a few twists. I didn't give it a five because it's not exactly Hemingway. The book held my attention, but I couldn't say it kept me up reading into the wee hours. I was good enough that I will read more in the series. Good proofreading and editing!

    Palm Beach Nasty is the first book in Tom Turner’s series featuring police detective Charlie Crawford. I’d read Palm Beach Bedlam (book 8) previously, so I was interested in seeing how the series opened. Palm Beach Nasty did not disappoint. It was a fun read and effectively develops the key characters and overall ambiance of the series. So if you like straight-ahead, fast-paced thrillers with a Florida vibe, you might want to give this series a look.

    On The Make After living for two years in Palm Beach County, it was time to revisit the area. Most of the places mentioned were new to me, but the flavor lingered. An exciting read with an interesting cast of characters. The antagonists were evil and the protagonists properly heroic and all were well drawn and fascinating. Certainly a series to be read!

I admit some of it was preposterous that it was easy to run a scam on the truly wealthy but this is fiction and kept me entertained. I had no idea I would like this book so much...

    Mainly a book about Two detectives in a mystery of many different things! Forgery, murder, stealing, mysteries. The lead characters are well-conceived but the villains are cardboard. This imbalance--which extends to the dialogue coming out of the characters' mouths--reduces readers' enjoyment. I'll try another Charlie Crawford book, though.

    Not too bad, but suffered in comparison to the Titus South book Miami Burn that I just finished reading. Life is short; probably won't continue with this series.

    Intriguing mystery This is an interesting mystery set in Palm Beach with a villain very much like Jeffery Epstein. The police detectives are interesting, this has to be the start of a series. I thought the characters and observations on the rich in Palm Beach were interesting and look forward to more.
