NEW: The Upside to Murder (Audiobook) by Marshall Frank |


The Upside To Murder

” Marshall Frank has proved himself a master at suspense with a novel that weaves a twisted crime story around our most basic human instincts, emotions, and needs. Thumbs up.”

—Bahia Abrams, author, The Other Half Of My Soul

“Marshall Frank knows murder for its complexity and surprises. Only a veteran homicide detective can communicate this fast paced tale to the reader.”

           — Dr. Roger E. Mittleman, Chief Medical Examiner, Florida District 19

“Frank has penned a gripping story filled with real people dealing with real dilemmas of life: separation, pain, loss and grief. The reactions of his characters to these dilemmas drive a story that unfolds quickly with many a twist and turn. This book is hard to put down.”

           — John J. Spiegel, Miami Attorney, Former Homicide Detective

a thriller that could only be written by a man with an intimate knowledge of detective work; who also happens to be a master of the English language. Demonstrating the author’s attention to detail, each carefully crafted scene—and for that matter, every phrase, paragraph, and page—adds to our understanding of the unfolding drama; as we become more invested in the characters, and increasingly curious regarding the outcome of the story, with each succeeding sentence.
