Ocean City Cover-up: A Jamie August Novel
"Kash takes readers on a rocket ride from Maryland’s Eastern Shore, to Baltimore’s eclectic Hampden area, to a luxurious penthouse in Dubai, outwitting Russian mobsters, crooked cops, a superstar rapper, and even the girl’s own parents in this high-spirited, slyly humorous page-turner."--Marcia Talley, Agatha and Anthony award-winning author of Daughter of Ashes and thirteen previous Hannah Ives mysteries
"Kim Kash has crafted a solid mystery with plenty of twists, whip-smart dialogue, and a sprinkle of romance. Ocean City Cover-up kept me awake into the wee hours, flipping pages and collecting clues with Jamie.”--LynDee Walker, Agatha Award-nominated author of Devil in the Deadline
Euro-trash collides with American gangsta in Maryland’s gleefully cheesy beach resort. Reporter Jamie August befriends a spoiled heiress who is being pursued by Russian mobsters—and a chart-topping rap star. Meanwhile, a raging crime spree is keeping Jamie busy—and so is a hot new boyfriend and a strict jogging and frozen custard fitness plan. Action careens from OC to Dubai, from the wild shores of Assateague to a wild-west campground. Will Jamie survive to debut her fringed leopard-print bikini?

Ocean City Lowdown: A Jamie August Novel
"Jamie is a smart, sexy and unforgettable heroine I'd love to be my guide to the real Ocean City, Maryland--no matter what the season. Ocean City Lowdown is a wonderful, original debut mystery filled with delightful characters that is bound to appeal to fans of Janet Evanovich." -Sujata Massey, Macavity and Agatha Award-winning author of the Rei Shimura Series and The Sleeping Dictionary
Ocean City Lowdown 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, Maryland. 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?
Get it right here.
