Product Description

Product Description

Miami, Gold Coast Australia, NOT Florida, is the back drop for this action packed, old style detective series, set in a modern fast paced world down under.

Roy Findley is a smart mouthed ex-cop turned Private Investigator, standing up for the little guy and taking a beating for his trouble.

He's a cross between Magnum P.I. and Starsky and Hutch. With his Elvis hair, stylish Hawaiian shirts, fast cars and a touch of romance, he's all class.

In this the first book in the Miami Series, Roy goes up against a local drug ring, a crooked land developer and half the cops in town.

About the Author

Born 1963 in Sydney Australia and now living on the Gold Coast in Queensland with my beautiful wife, five amazing kids and two very well behaved gold fish. Working in IT for longer than I can remember, I have had various attempts at writing over the years. Having written poetry in my teens and short stories for my own amusement and enjoyment, I started to take writing seriously over the last 8 - 10 years, with several individual books and two series currently underway. My first published book, MIAMI P.I. is the first in the MIAMI Series featuring Roy Findley, a Private Investigator working out of Miami on the Gold Coast. Roy is one of the good guys, out to help the underdog. My Guidance Series is an adventure SciFi, and will be my next release later in 2013. Mountain of Light will be the first book, and has been in the works for several years now. I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I do. ZOY

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read 10 May 2013

I really enjoyed this short detective story. Especially the surprise ending. Well done Mr Yates for a first effort. Keep up the good work. I will be looking for the 2nd Roy Findley.
5.0 out of 5 stars Roy Findley Detective book 1 23 Mar 2014

This is a very good first book by this author. Fast paced, solid characters, I really like Roy and Alice, good mystery suspense and a bit of humor. I will be reading the next book in this series, Miami D. O. A.
4.0 out of 5 stars Fast Paced Action 28 Dec 2013
By Avidreader18 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This relatively new author knows how to keep the pace moving. Miami PI is an entertaining fast read. The author obviously has first hand knowledge of the Australian Gold Coast as well as high powered cars. This story flows well from scene to scene with dashes of humour and wit. As a debut novel one can only hope that his additonal work be even better than the first, as he takes the time to build solid characters, panoramic backgrounds and realistic violent scenarios, bearing in mind the physical capabilities of his Private Investigator.
4.0 out of 5 stars Roy rocks! 22 Nov 2013
By Brett Kiellerop - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Miami P.I. is a fun detective mystery which takes you on a fast-paced romp through Australia's Gold Coast. The protagonist, Roy, is charming, the antagonist annoying (to Roy, not the reader), and the girl endearing. Roy's investigation introduces you to the type of colourful and quirky characters that the Gold Coast is known for.

Whilst it could use a bit of a once-over with a grammar checker, the over-use of commas is not distracting and, once finished, you put the book down having thoroughly enjoyed it.

This is definitely a fun, easy read. There are no dull spots, and you never feel bogged down in the narrative. I'm looking forward to the next in the series!
5.0 out of 5 stars A cracking good read 17 Oct 2013
By Michael Besnard - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hooks you in from the first chapter and doesn't let go until the end. Humorous and thrilling, Roy is the guy fighting for life and lime with helping the underdog. If I was an arachnid I'd give it 8 thumbs up. Alas I'll shave to settle for giving it just two ;) Do yourself a favour and read this, for Zane Yates first prose has left me wanting more, more! MORE!!
