Scientist Turns to Detective Fiction Writing

A scientist-turned-novelist pens a thriller that should remind readers of DC/Vertigo’s Jonny Double and the 2003 action comedy film Hollywood Homicide.


Detective fiction has never been this fun, entertaining, and humorous. Maux’s swear words add to the story’s appeal and the character’s charisma.

After a prolific career in science, Philip Emma turns to fiction writing. He clearly impresses mystery thriller fans with his detective story titled “Mickey Maux Muddles a Murder (And Solves Adler’s Problem)” (Xlibris, 2017).
While Emma’s novel employs the investigation and whodunit techniques, his main character exudes the swag of Jonny Double, only without the beatnik or hipster slang. Retired scientist Mickey Maux swears, and unlike Double, he’s married and rich. When he’s not inventing stuff in his lab, he’s out helping the police solve difficult cases.
In “Mickey Maux Muddles a Murder,” Maux comes across a murder scene at the back of the supermarket after completing his shopping. After taking some time to investigate the scene, he contacts Danny, an old friend who’s a detective. As they dig deeper into the case, their investigation leads them to believe there is something more dangerous and more mysterious about the case than it appears to be – the case becomes a jigsaw puzzle, which forces the scientist and part-time detective Maux to solve the case in a way no detective should ever do – by framing someone else for the murder.
What makes Maux think he could frame the murder on another person? And who is this person? “Mickey Maux Muddles a Murder” features more plot twists than that of the Harrison Ford starrer Hollywood Homicide.
Emma’s Mickey Maux Muddles a Murder (And Solves Adler’s Problem)” is available at (link to website).
