To Don: WRITE ON!
Frankly My Dear is the fourth entry in Don Massenzio’s Detective series featuring Private Investigator, Frank Rozzani, and his partner Clifford “Jonesy” Jones. This is my first foray into the adventures of Frank and Jonesy and overall I must say I enjoyed it. The main characters are solid and believable and reading how they work together and live their lives was interesting and fun for me.
As I said, though this is the fourth book in the series, it was my first therefore some things which did bother me could perhaps just be my lack of knowledge in the series or the author’s writing style. For instance, we begin with a short prologue from a key character’s POV which is not seen again. It seems to exist only to show their plight though we do meet them throughout the story. Again this could be a style the author uses I’m unfamiliar with however it doesn’t affect the story either way it just felt out of place to me.
Another is the first two chapters felt a bit slowed by the wealth of back story and other details. The back story info was there for readers like me which is fine, but I did find myself wanting to hurry through some of it along with the very detailed routes taken and food enjoyed. It is not wrong by any means; I just felt the pacing was slowed by it.
From about chapter three on though I was hooked and the pacing was perfect, and kept me hanging onto the events taking place and rising dangers. The great twists and turns throughout were very satisfying however the ending was a bit lacking for me. No spoilers here. The final resolution doesn’t ruin the book for me but I was hoping for more. That said I look forward to picking up the previous three installments! I’d rate Frankly My Dear a solid 3.5 stars out of 5 but as I can’t I always default to the next one up. Still a fun read!
Even though 4th, the most recent, in this series, it does well as a stand alone.
This time around, their newest client is a man accused of domestic abuse. He swears that it is HE who is the victim of a psychopathic ex-girlfriend. She's already cost him his job working for an insurance company. He's had to resort to doing yard work to make ends meet.
It seems the ex-girlfriend is now charging that he beat her up and is out for more revenge.
Once again, Frank and Jonesy place themselves in harm's way as they investigate. And what they find is a game changer ... why did the girlfriend legally change her name? And is she really as dangerous as the client says ... or is he trying for a cover-up to keep himself out of jail?
This is a well-written novel, full of suspense. The author has done a very good job is exploring domestic violence when it happens to men. The characters are finely drawn and conversations are realistic.
My thanks to the author who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
The combination of Frank Rozzani and his longtime friend, Jonesy are always a good read. As they start up their own business together and their lives settle down a bit, it’s nice to read some positive things happen for a change. But for how long? Their “new” first client has gotten himself in a continual mess. Will Rozzani and Jonesy be able to save their clients bacon without cooking their own? Will they solve more than one case?
Enjoy the ride!
