Read Sample

Frank served in the U.S. Army from 1986-91 in Military Intelligence as a Czechoslovak linguist. In 1993, he became a police officer. During his career, he worked as a patrol officer, corporal, and detective. In 2002, he became a sergeant and entered into leadership roles. He was fortunate enough to command patrol officers, investigators, K-9 officers (and their dogs!), and the SWAT team. Frank retired from law enforcement in 2013 as a captain. Since then, he has taught law enforcement subject matter at community college, university, and as an independent consultant. He also teaches a series of writing workshops.

Frank began writing seriously at about thirteen. In 1995, he started the first draft of “Under A Raging Moon,” which would become the first book in the River City series of crime fiction.

Since then, Frank has completed a number of novels set in River City, a fictional version of Spokane, Washington. The River City series is published in paperback by Gray Dog Press and currently sits at four volumes. Other Frank Zafiro books are also set in River City, including mysteries such as “Waist Deep” and “Lovely, Dark, and Deep”, starring Stefan Kopriva, and “Some Degree of Murder”, written with Colin Conway. Other novels are set in Spokane proper, such as “The Last Horseman” and “At Their Own Game”, or elsewhere, such as the Chicago setting for “Blood on Blood”, written with Jim Wilsky.

Frank has been rated the #1 author for police procedurals on Amazon, and remains one of the top ranked authors in that Amazon category. Frank’s books are available in all formats — paperback, ebook, and audio book.

In addition to novels, dozens of Franks’ short stories have been published in magazines (print or online) and numerous anthologies.

Frank also write mainstream fiction under his real name, Frank Scalise, including his hockey novel “All That Counts” (Gray Dog Press,February 2010) and a children’s series about Sam the Hockey Player, which began with the middle grade title “The Hardest Hit.”

Frank resides near Spokane, Washington, with his wife and son. He is an avid hockey fan, reader, movie lover, and a tortured guitarist.
