Ocean City Lowdown, described by one reviewer as "Hiaasen meets Bubbles Yablonsky." The book introduces Eastern Shore Maryland reporter Jamie August, who has a talent for unearthing more than her editor wants and a weakness for Ravens jerseys and sparkly underwear. She is assigned to cover the grand opening of a big new housing development in Ocean City. But instead of writing about wrap-around porches and rattan furnishings, she uncovers kickbacks and payoffs, blackmail and murder. Jamie's tenacity, smarts, and sheer recklessness—plus some smokin’ striptease dance moves—can get her out of some tight spots, but are they enough to save her from a psychopathic arsonist and two generations of corrupt real estate tycoons?


I’m married.” He said it earnestly, like he was telling me he had cancer.

Son of a bitch. How had I not seen this coming? I dropped my eyes to the table.

“Hey, but don’t worry about it, it’s not a problem. She’s in Boca Raton for the winter.”

I could taste the fried food coming back up my throat. I didn’t trust myself to speak. My hands shook as I pulled the press kit out from under the wreckage of the appetizer platter. I shoved everything randomly in my bag, including a few stray French fries. I grabbed my coat and slid out of the booth.

“What are you doing?” He looked more annoyed than concerned. “Okay, come on. There’s a snowstorm outside. I can take you home.”

I kept walking and bumped into our waitress, who gave me a withering look as she attempted to rebalance the huge tray of food on her shoulder. “Girl, you better watch it,” she hissed. Without breaking stride, I flipped her the bird, then used the finger to give a little push to the underside of the tray. The whole thing came crashing down, a waterfall of chili, mashed potatoes, gravy, and fries all
over her shiny blond hair.
