Retired Miami police detective to speak in Sylva

Written by 

Author Marshall Frank will give a talk at the public library in Sylva at 7 p.m. on July 12 based on his books and experiences as a police officer.

Frank’s most recent book, a thriller entitled The Upside to Murder, follows a respected Miami physician as he tries to protect his daughter, the victim of a horribly violent crime, and has to relive it as the case moves to trial. 

Much of Frank’s writing is inspired by his 30 years as a police officer, including his years as a homicide detective in Miami-Dade County. His previous books are both novels and non-fiction, including a memoir entitled From Violins to Violence, which chronicles his early life as the stepson of a Miami Beach mobster and his training as a musician and dancer before he became a law enforcement officer.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
