The author painted a picture that was easy to see, and step right into, as if I were inside a detective movie. Superbly written tale of mystery and intrigue interlaced with humor, and southern flavor. Frank Rozzani and his colorful friends and colleagues use their wits, and anything else they can commandeer to discover what has happened to missing teen. The novel is peppered with an assortment of possible villains and helpers. The trick is to figure out who, is who, and why. There's a vet, a beautiful lab/border collie mix, a couple of cops....(think good cop - bad cop), a few lawyers, (the good, the bad, and the super smart, savvy surfer dude. Preachers, nurses, thugs, and Big Sam. And all of this takes place in and around Jacksonville, Florida. This was a front to back read for me. The author was able to draw me in from the beginning, and easily kept me enthralled until the extremely satisfying conclusion. My only complaint was the words, "The End" I hated to leave Frank Rozzani PI and his friends Luckily there are more "Frank Rozzani Detective novels, and I planned to read the rest.

Definitely if Don Massenzio writes more books! I read a lot of detective novels and especially enjoy the ones that are in series, with characters you come to know and love and root for. Frankly Speaking introduces us to such characters. Already want to know more about them and share their adventures. I have read authors from A to Z on bestseller lists and I enjoyed this book as much as any of the ones I've been collecting for over ten years. If you are looking for a good, fun, fast paced story with interesting characters, READ This book! You will not be disappointed! Many thanks for sharing your unique gift, Mr. Massenzio.
