Symptomless Crash using Newtonsoft in PCL

I recently moved a project I am working on over to a JSON document based backend. Serialization on the backend works just fine, all data objects are uploaded successfully, but on download, when I attempt to deserialize using Newtonsoft's JsonConvert.DeserializeObject, my app crashes with no exception or indication that anything is going awry. I am currently building Profile 78 on an android device where the crash is occurring.

    Have you tried running the Android Device Monitor while debugging to see if it provides more details on what is causing the crash?

    I actually solved my problem - I was accidentally trying to create a memorystream from a null byte[], but because I was using a delegate, it seems there was no exception thrown.

    What was the answer ? I have a Xamarin PCL object and every Newtonsoft function I try blows up. I do not see the solution posted
