About this author

I’m a Boston boy, born and bred in Beantown. As a child of the much maligned 60s, I was pro-active in many of the news-making events of the day (Free Bobby Seal, the Chicago Seven, the March on Washington). For ten years I played bass guitar and sang for a rock 'n' roll band while playing solo on the folk coffeehouse circuit and can still do a good Dylan imitation.

After graduation from University of Massachusetts at Amherst, I headed for an extended tour of South America. I spelunked in Bolivia, fished in Patagonia, tromped through the jungles of the Amazon and Orinoco river basins and climbed the eighteen thousand foot Sierra Nevada de Cocuy in Colombia.

most publishers and literary agents would agree that when it comes to selling books, an author who makes an effort to build up a profile and make themselves known is much easier to promote than a shrinking violet. There's a lot of noise out there and if you want to be heard, then you need to be prepared to shout.

Palm Beach Confidential (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated Jul 31, 2010 07:39AM
Description: "Palm Beach is like Roman Polanski’s Chinatown," Maxie Roberts heard. "You may think you know what’s going on, but, I guarantee, you don't." Maxie Roberts, the hero of Robert Mykle’s intricate, mystery novel, Palm Beach Confidential, is a Palm Beach gallery owner who has just come from a murder scene. Not only has his wealthy socialite client been brutally murdered in the boudoir of her Palm Beach mansion, Maxie suspects the paintings he was hired to appraise are forgeries. When he discovers the forgeries were substituted for the real paintings, he is determined to find the forger and the originals and the murderer. Unfortunately, Maxie’s questionable past is as tainted as many of his wealthy clients fortunes. "Don’t ask don’t tell," as a universal disclaimer, is alive and well in Palm Beach. Maxie finds himself drawn into a high-profile murder that threatens not only his fortune but his life. However, his obsessive detective work may cost him everything, including the chance to take his relationship with attorney Kathy Kramer to the next level. Palm Beach Confidential weaves an intricate, twisted plot that plays out in a thrilling roller coaster climax. Mr. Mykle has deftly slid Maxie Roberts. as a hip and sightly subversive art dealer with a libido in overdrive. into the Palm Beach sleuth niche vacated by Lawrence Sander’s private detective, Archy McNally. Mr. Mykle is obviously no stranger to the ritzy and wealthy domain of Palm Beach, as well as its guarded secrets and back alleys.
