Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Agatha and Macavity winner Joan Hess, author of Out on a Limb and other novels in her Claire Malloy series, as well as Maggody and the Moonbeams and other novels in her Arly Hanks series, will please her fans with Big Foot Stole My Wife! And Other Stories. Most of the 11 tales are on the light side, but the final entry, "Another Room," shows how good Hess can be at psychological suspense.

Format: Hardcover
This eleven-collection mystery anthology showcases Joan Hess at her for the most part amusing best. Two of the tales star Claire Malloy and two others Arkansas Sheriff Arly Hanks (the Maggody novels). Those four tales alone would make the short story collection worth reading, but the other seven tales are also well written with six containing the author's renowned humor with a wink. Surprisingly, the final contribution seems out of place, as it is more of a psychological suspense thriller than Ms. Hess's typical satirical biting social barb that leaves no one standing. Besides the writer's fans and towns with populations under 800, anyone who appreciates a strong anthology will want to read BIG FOOT STOLE MY WIFE! AND OTHER STORIES. Additionally, Ms. Hess' readership will also enjoy her previous collection, DEATH OF A ROMANCE WRITER AND OTHER STORIES.

Big Foot stole my wife! March 9 2012
By B. Idle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The title sets the tone for some fun reading of short stories. In this fast-paced world it's nice to find something you can enjoy in spurts. Much as I love novels, I love good short stories just as much. This is a good example.

Too Bad Big Foot Didn't Steal this Book Before I Read it! Dec 15 2004
By James N Simpson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This collection of short stories fell very short of my expectations. Granted I had never heard of Joan Hess but the praise for Joan Hess reviews on the back all claimed she was an extremely funny writer so hence that is what I expected. Humour however is not contained within this novel, it is not that her jokes or comedy scenes weren't funny, it is just that they do not exist at all. This book is a B grade thriller but certainly not a humorous collection of stories. The quality of those stories as thrillers is also rather average. The stories are predictable and many an effort to stick with as well. Give this book a miss!
