Franky Dast Mysteries

      2018 Best PI Hardcover Shamus Award Nominee

              2018 Reader’s Choice Award Nominee | Salt Lake City Library System

An “engrossing series launch.” “Readers will want to see more of the complex Dast, who's both fragile and strong, cynical and naive.”

                              – Publishers Weekly                         

“This gorgeously crafted, shudderingly dark novel blends the genres of psychological thriller and murder mystery.” “Masterfully setting in motion his main character’s goals and the array of blocking forces, the author carefully orchestrates the larger and smaller revelations, the successes and failures along Franky’s path, into a thundering coda of suspense.”

                             Naples Florida Weekly

          “Like your noir pitch-black? So does Wiley.”


     Monument Road “will likely launch the writer to new heights.”

                             Library Journal

           “This Florida-based tale is a must for fans of noir.”

                             Bolo Books

“Franky is a haunted, flawed character but the writer develops and fleshes out his character so that the reader has great empathy for him.” “The writer does not shy away from the darkest, most depraved actions that some human beings commit and he allows his characters to fail and make mistakes and to find their way back to redemption.”

                             Breakaway Reviewers (UK)

Monument Road by Michael Wiley is a riveting mystery.” “This first installment in the Franky Dast Mystery series is sure to be a hit with fans of the genre.”
