for the John Francis Cuddy series

"Healy is a marvelous writer, one of the finest craftsmen working the mystery beat....RESCUE is Healy at his best--a richly textured, superbly unfolded tale."

Robert A. Carter, HOUSTON CHRONICLE

"Brilliant....I've always wished...Healy well, but not THIS well."

Robert B. Parker, author of the SPENSER series

"RESCUE is a humdinger....Deeply touching, the writing is deft and clean, the...action bloodcurdlingly convincing, and the [Florida] Keys atmosphere is caught better than anyone has done it since John D. MacDonald."

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"In a world where values are constantly shifting and slipping, John Cuddy hangs on to his code of honor with the ferocity of those bold knights of yore....A terrific series."

Marilyn Stasio, THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

"Dazzling....Healy leads you through the mazes [of INVASION OF PRIVACY] so expertly that you will be left shaking your head at how thoroughly you were had."

KIRKUS REVIEWS

"One of today's best mystery series."

Kevin Moore, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

"INVASION OF PRIVACY is a solid private-eye procedural enriched by believable affection between characters....The portrayal of Cuddy's unlikely friendship with Mafioso [enforcer] Primo Zuppone is worth the price of the book."

--Rosemary Herbert, THE BOSTON HERALD

"THE ONLY GOOD LAWYER is thoroughly enjoyable and completely surprising."

THE NEW YORK LAW JOURNAL

"SPIRAL takes Cuddy to another level....Healy handles the large cast with aplomb and precision."

THE [CLEVELAND] PLAIN DEALER

"This very compelling tale [features] one of the more ingenious murder methods I've read about, in real life or fiction."

THE PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE

"SPIRAL packs an emotional wallop as it exposes the basest of human emotions--greed, jealousy, lust, and unbridled ambition. Another strong entry in a fine series."

Wes Lukowsky, BOOKLIST

"SPIRAL moves at a fast clip, with surprises and twists to keep the reader off balance....South Florida's beauty, its endless suburbs, and its rich swamps are postcard-perfect."

Oline Cogdill, THE [FORT LAUDERDALE] SUN-SENTINEL
