Papa’s Shoes is an engaging and well-written novel loosely based on the true story of the author’s grandparents, Isidore, a shoemaker and his wife Mrytle Tasky, who left a tiny shtetl in Poland in the early 1900s to come to America in pursuit of a better life for their family...

The Upside To Murder has received
2014 Don Argo Award for fiction
[by the Space coast Writers Guild]
Marshall Frank has written many good books
but Upside takes the cake. From page one to the end I was
absorbed by the story...when not reading it I was
thinking about it. Few books can do that to me. The
characters are real and unforgettable. The story is
believable and the pace FAST, yet loaded with quality
descriptions of places and emotions. Two thumbs up and five stars
down. Read this book.

good pace and keeps you on your toes trying to fathom
the ending. It is hard to believe that this is a first
novel. I am anxiously awaiting the next book by this
author as I am sure a talent of the caliber will have a
lengthy history of novels. Thanks for an engrossing
