Throughout his early years, Frank Hickey worked the Harlem streets as a private eye. He lived for months undercover in the Cajun bayous of Louisiana, hunting a killer.

His adventures have taken him around the world. Living outdoors or in crude huts, he learned local languages and culture.

Carrying the gold shield of a Detective-Investigator/Police Officer, he served in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office on an international serial killer case. Using the Sicilian language, he also went undercover against the New York Mafia.
As a corporal in the Savannah, Georgia Police Department, he learned about
the South.

Later, as an LAPD officer, he initiated one-person foot patrols in high-crime areas amid gang wars and drive-by shootings.

37 years of crime adventures from the jungles of Thailand to southern swamps to the streets of New York form his life.

Besides his Max Royster series, Frank also co-wrote Spy, the Movie starring Vincent Pastore [The Sopranos.]


“I bought this book right away. I liked it. You’ve got to laugh. You’ve got to have a sense of humor about these things.” Julie Hackworth-McIntyre, the Mayor of Barstow, California, talking about Can Showbizzers Crush Crime?

When the Whistle Blows, Everyone Goes

Remember me?

Max Royster, ex-cop bounced from the NYPD for mental disease, overweight, divorced and broke.

A Manhattan tycoon frets about his beautiful daughter.

She is cavorting somewhere near Palm Springs, California.

He pays me to find her.

This simple job turns into a hairball.

She leads me astray.

Someone kills her boyfriend.

The U.S. Park Rangers blame me for it and lock me up in a federal prison.

Me being me, I try to stay cheery by organizing swing dances between male inmates.

An inmate hate group tries to rape and kill me.

Other inmates protect me for kicks.

Some enjoy the dances. Anything beats prison routine.

The warden and the guards suspect me of spying on them for the FBI.

Things look grim for our hero.

Can I swing-dance and laugh my way out of lock-down to find the real killer among the Beautiful People in Palm Springs?

Everyone wants to see what happens next.

You will, too.
