Jeremiah Healy Books Overview

Right to Die

Hired to protect Maisy Andrus, a crusader for euthanasia rights, from a potential assassin, Jeremiah Healy enters Andrus’s world of righteous activism in order to investigate his list of suspects. NYT.

Act of God

Boston private eye John Francis Cuddy looks for the links among a determined widow, her murdered husband, a cagey young druggist, his missing sister, and the honky tonk boardwalks of Atlantic City. By the author of Foursome.

Rescue

Twenty four hours after making a promise to a doomed ten year old boy, John Cuddy begins a race against the clock to fulfill his promise and encounters sinister religious zealots, a lovely barmaid, and a World War II vet. NYT.

Invasion of Privacy

After a background check on a man named Andrew Dees, P.I. John Cuddy is attacked by two thugs, and his personal life is thrown into turmoil. Now, finding the truth about Dees and fighting for the woman he loves have both become a matter of survival.

The Only Good Lawyer

With the help of his irrepressible hero, John Francis Cuddy, Jeremiah Healy never fails to deliver scintillating, perfectly pitched mystery masterpieces in what The New York Times Book Review calls ‘a superior series.’ Now the Shamus Award winning author ‘looks ready to join the honors class of private eye writers that includes Robert B. Parker’ USA Today, as he introduces us to The Only Good Lawyer. An attorney friend of Boston P.l. John Cuddy has called in a favor, looking into the case of Alan Spaeth. Spaeth is one sorry piece of work a down and out divorce squeeze, a racist, a misogynist, and from all appearances, a cold blooded killer. Frankly wishing the whole mess would disappear, Cuddy can’t let it. It pains him, but he’s convinced of Spaeth’s innocence, and he isn’t the kind of P.l. who can watch even a guy like Spaeth fry for someone else’s crime. As much as Cuddy is repulsed by the accused, he’s intrigued by the victim, Woodrow Wilson Gant, the African American lawyer who had been representing Spaeth’s wife in a very nasty divorce. But before Cuddy’s investigation is done, there will be plenty of nastiness to go around. On the surface, Gant led a charmed and successful life as a rising star in the glittering firmament of Massachusetts law. But three quick bullets at a deserted roadside knocked Gant out of the Boston skyline for good, and now Cuddy’s discovered the attorney was also a man of strange desires and deep secrets?secrets that could prove lethal to the touch…
. Ricocheting from Gant’s law offices, Cuddy picks up the trail of a woman who fled the scene of the murder. Rousted by a couple of loan sharks and conned by Gant’s avaricious brother, Cuddy stumbles on a more personal question. The mere mention of Gant’s name puts a cold, hard kink in his relationship with Assistant D.A. Nancy Meagher, and Cuddy’s Iosing sleep wondering why. Greed. Revenge. Jealousy. There is any number of motives for murder, and Cuddy can take his pick as he investigates the high profile homicide of Woodrow Wilson Gant, exploring the raw passion and touching every nerve of the edge.

Spiral

The creator of ‘exciting, thoughtful, wily fiction’ The Washington Post, Jeremiah Healy has won critical raves for his John Francis Cuddy novels, ‘a superior series’ The New York Times Book Review. Now Healy pushes the envelope of mystery writing with a soul searching tale that plunges Cuddy into his own private nightmare. Some mysteries have no answers like why an airplane falls out of the sky, and why the woman you love was onboard that flight. When unfathomable tragedy strikes Boston private investigator John Francis Cuddy, all he can do is begin to grieve. There’s no revenge. No perp. And no cure except time. But when Cuddy is jarred by a call for help from an old Vietnam era comrade, time is a luxury he can’t afford. Cuddy goes because he has to. And what he finds in Fort Lauderdale is a tragedy that rivals his own: a proud vet brought down by a stroke, searching for his granddaughter’s killer. The girl was found dead in Colonel Nicolas Helides’ heavily guarded mansion on the Intracoastal Waterway. Thirteen years old and far from innocent, Veronica Helides was hardly protected by her family’s wealth. Used by her own father to revive his music career and the fortunes of a band named Spiral, Veronica had been molded into a sexually provocative rock starlet. By the time someone drowned her at her grandfather’s birthday party, murder was merely the last crime committed against her. Now Cuddy is picking apart a cast of players in the life of Colonel Helides and the granddaughter everyone called ‘Very.’ From Helides’ younger, depressive son to former groupies; from a mysterious spiritual advisor to the woman who married the colonel for his money and the license it would buy her, Cuddy is seeing the worst of human nature at a time when his own heart is broken in two. If that were not enough, the killing of a precocious victim may not have been the isolated act it first appeared. In a powerful and mesmerizing novel of uncontrollable love, rage, and loyalty among families and friends, John Francis Cuddy isn’t just trying to catch a killer he’s trying to stop himself from free falling into the ultimate human darkness.

The Concise Cuddy

‘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.

Cuddy — Plus One

Cuddy is not only a skillful P.I., but a concerned human being who has experienced loss in his own life. He still communes with his dead wife Beth at a Boston graveyard, and though he lives in a world that can turn violent, he is not a violent man. Cuddy Plus One puts in book form thirteen previously uncollected cases about Cuddy including four nominees for the Shamus Award for Best Private Eye Short story, and two stories that appeared in the annual Best American Mystery Stories. As a special bonus, the book adds a ‘plus one,’ the first short story featuring Mairead O Clare, a female attorney just past the bar who, disenchanted with large law firm practice in Boston, throws in with an older male attorney representing mostly criminal defendants.

Uncommon Justice

Rarely has the debut of a new series generated as much excitement, or propelled its author into such high ranks, as Uncommon Justice the powerful story of a corporate lawyer’s first criminal case, defending a homeless man accused of murder. ‘Do not miss Terry Devane’s Uncommon Justice.’ Perri O’Shaughnessy ‘A top notch thriller.’ Michael Palmer ‘Twists and turns galore.’ Tess Gerritsen ‘A heroine you can root for.’ Phillip Margolin ‘Savvy, suspenseful.’ William Bernhardt ‘Unpredictable and entertaining.’ Publishers Weekly

Juror Number Eleven

The legal duo of O’Clare and Gold have just completed the successful defense of Gold’s boyhood friend, Big Ben Friedman, on a murder charge. But no sooner has the trial ended than Mairead receives a mysterious phone call from Juror Number Eleven saying she must see her right away. When Mairead arrives at Conchita Balaguer’s house, all she finds is an unlocked door and Juror Number Eleven‘s lifeless body. The prime suspect is none other than Big Ben Friedman. And this time, a ‘not guilty’ verdict seems far from certain. Jeffery Deaver called Terry Devane’s first courtroom thriller ‘sly and brilliant.’ With Juror Number Eleven, Devane delivers another winner.

A Stain Upon The Robe

The Honorable Barbara Quincy Pitt has been selected to preside over the trial of a Catholic priest accused of raping twenty three children in his former parishes. But the notoriety and horror of the case seem to be the least of the judge’s problems. She has become romantically involved with a young law clerk assigned to assist her in this case. Now the young man has disappeared. Judge Pitt enlists the aid of her former classmate Sheldon Gold to locate the law clerk and prevent a scandal that would destroy her career. Assisting her boss, Mairead O’Clare finds herself caught between defending a client and pursuing justice and it’s not at all clear which will prevail.

The Stalking Of Sheilah Quinn

A criminal defense attorney is stalked by the very murder defendant she gets out on bail, in this electrifying new thriller by the author of the Shamus Award winning John Cuddy series.

Off Season, And Other Stories

Shamus Award winning author All of Jeremiah Healy’s trademarks are in this wonderful collection which includes the never before published novella, Off Season, featuring Kevin Malloy, a city cop on vacation who stumbles into a murder investigation. As he tries to figure out who did what to whom, the half truths begin to pile up, until Malloy isn’t sure who’s on whose side.
