Rozzani is a tragic figure in one respect: A former cop, his wife was murdered by shadowy mob figures and his two children are hiding out in a witness protection program while he pursues a second career as a private investigator in Jacksonville, FL. He has made some good friends in the relatively short time he has lived and worked there including a police officer, a lawyer who would rather be surfing than arguing cases in a courtroom, and the owner of a well-known eatery. It's that restaurant owner who asks him for some help when one of his employees - a pretty young woman who was trying to get her life back together - is murdered and her body dumped in a park. The investigation will lead Rozzani to a place he does not want to be: A confrontation with organized crime figures but he takes the case anyway.
Massenzio writes in a crisp style; the dialogue in this book, for example, often reminded me of the paperback books featuring Sgt. Joe Friday of "Dragnet" fame that I read when I was much younger. His descriptions of people and places is offered up without a lot of flowery adjectives and the narrative is nicely paced. The plot is sufficiently intricate and there are a number of red herrings thrown into the mix so you are never quite sure until the end of the book who is responsible for the young woman's murder and why she was killed. As with many authors who write serials, Massenzio has borrowed a technique that is very common in television: He leaves his readers on edge waiting for his next installment because "Let Me Be Frank" ends with a cliffhanger.
All in all, a nice read with intriguing characters.
The trail leads them to New Orleans and two families once part of the crime scene there, though now legitimate. The murdered woman was part of one of them.
Someone was working hard to make it appear that the other family was responsible.
As Frank and Jonesy poked around, disturbing things from the past float up. Dodging bullets and murder attempts, they gradually figure the truth.
I' be become a big fan of Massenzio's work in the three Rozzani novels and short story.
