“Another thrilling Max Royster adventure. The author has not only
brought his personal experiences into play but channeled the Jack
London and Richard Tregaskis school of storytelling. His best yet!
Keep ‘em coming.” —Terence V. Hayes (Author of Blessed Are The
Peacemakers and forthcoming The Candy Store)
“Frank Hickey’s stories remind you of Elmore Leonard, Denis
Johnson, Pete Dexter or any other great storyteller writing about the
underbelly of society. His characters and plots are unique; Frank’s
life experience bleeds through onto the page. He’s authentic as hell!”
—Andy Rosenzweig (Former Chief Investigator,
Manhattan District Attorney’s Office)
“Once again, Max Royster has ventured outside the comfort zone of
his Upper East Side ‘Playpen.’ This time he finds himself amidst
ethnic unrest in paradise. Racing to rescue the daughter he never
knew he had. His only weapons are his insights into peoples’ minds
and hearts, and the one love that never lets him down – dancing.
This could be his best Max Royster yet. —Dr. Robert Tarwacki, PhD.
(Assistant Professor, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY)
“Max is now established on with the Guadalcanal – doing archeological
research, setting up a dancing/karate school AND a cave distillery to
provide employment economic for the locals. Just drinking, kicking
and, of course, DANCING THE MAX…Until he reconnects with his
estranged daughter.” —Daniel Eliseuson (US Marine [33 years
Active and Reserve])
