Superintendent Frank Castle Froest (1858, Bristol – 7 January, 1930) was a British detective and crime writer.

Froest was described by a journalist as being "...short, thick-set, full-faced, Mr.Froest in uniform looked more like a Prussian field-marshal than anything else.

Called 'the man with iron hands', Froest was incredibly strong, and could tear a pack of cards in half and snap a sixpence 'like a biscuit'.
