Book Description

Jan. 1 1999
"One of Today's Best American Mystery Series," writes the Chicago Sun-Times about Jeremiah Healy's books featuring private detective John Francis Cuddy. One of the most popular and admired of current crime writers, Healy has been honored by his fellow writers by eleven Shamus nominations (five for short stories, all of which appear in this volume), and his second novel, The Staked Goat, won the Shamus for Best Private Eye Novel.

The Concise Cuddy contains seventeen short stories about John Francis Cuddy with settings ranging from rural Maine, to Boston's mean streets, to a highway on the way to Florida, and characters who may be homeless or living in penthouses, and cases that run the gamut from brutal murder to a missing parakeet. To all these cases Cuddy brings the skills of a private eye and the humanity of a concerned human being.

Jeremiah Healy is currently President of the International Association of Crime Writers and Past President of the Private Eye Writers of America.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Deserved Award Winner July 11 2001
By Ntombi A. Peters - Published on Amazon.com
Though I really enjoy Healy's John Francis Cuddy novels, I had never read any of his short stories until this week. It is rare that I see (or read) a writer who is so masterful of both the long and short story format...Healy is one! I'm now waiting for the next collection to come out, because I couldn't get enough, which should tell you something, because my first choice is a novel 99% of the time. Of course, most of the stories being set in Boston (my hometown) is nice, but there isn't quite as much of the Boston flavor as in Robert B. Parker's novels. Up to you whether that's a good thing.
