SPOTLIGHT ON: Frank Ruffolo, author extraordinaire


If you like Sam Spade-type detective stories, you would love what Frank has to offer. A man of many writing talents, he’s cooked a couple of doozies in his latest book. I was privileged to be able to read them before their launch, and I WANT MORE! Luckily for me, and his growing crowd of devoted fans, he’s working on more even now.

OK, Ok, I hear you, and I’m about to step off and let Frank take over. Let’s see what the book’s about and all that jazz.


Frank Ruffolo



Beautiful women are dying in Fort Lauderdale from the bite of a black mamba, the deadliest snake in Africa. Then, during the feast of Saturnalia, a serial killer targets prostitutes during a cold winter in New York City.


Join Detective Jack Stenhouse, a seasoned professional with the fort Lauderdale P.D., as he cruises the hot asphalt in his ‘68 Hemi Road Runner. Follow Jack with his girlfriend Didi, a woman with a name to match her attributes, as he moves to the Big Apple and joins the First Precinct as the new recruit on duty.

Learn how the Shadow of Death accompanies Jack like an albatross around his neck. Find out if the Saturnalian Affect will cloud his judgement.


Now, enter the mysterious world of Jack Stenhouse. If you dare…


Love me a good detective story. And these two have more twists and turns than a mountain road on steroids. There’s no way of knowing whodunit until the end.

Let’s learn a bit more about our author of the day, shall we?

~~~~~~~~AUTHOR BIO~~~~~~~~~~

My name is Frank A. Ruffolo and I am a storyteller. I am married to my bride of 40 years and have two grown children and one grandson. I started writing in 2006 while I was still employed in the private sector as a Purchasing manager. I literally woke up one morning with an idea in my head that I thought would make a great movie. I have been listening to the voices ever since.

I am a multi-genre author in mystery crime fiction, sci-fi and action adventure.  My first two novels were self-published.: Gabriel’s Chalice, a sci fi thriller, and The Trihedral of Chaos, an action love story. The Jack Stenhouse Mysteries is my first with a legacy publisher, Linkville Press. I am currently editing a sequel to Gabriel’s Chalice, titled Tres Archangelis, and actively writing two more.

One is a sequel to my current murder mystery, titled Blue Falcon. Here Jack Stenhouse is recruited into a federal task force investigating the murder of several key witnesses scheduled to testify before Congress against a corrupt president. Jack follows the trail of blood to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

The other takes place over 1300 years in the future on a colonized and terraformed Mars, where the population there is being exterminated and eaten by an unknown beast of evil.  I am also researching and outlining two more story-lines.

I am very active on twitter and facebook and interact with friends and fans on a daily basis. You can access links to my books on my website, . You can catch me on twitter @ruffoloauthor. I have two sites on facebook. My author page is and my regular site is


Look for Frank’s Stenhouse book to be launched in the very near future!
