KIRKUS REVIEW

Healy (The Stalking of Sheilah Quinn, p. 781, etc.) is the most consistently successful writer of private-eye stories since Ross Macdonald. These 17 cases for Boston shamus John Francis Cuddy, most of them models of the form, include five Shamus nominees and a couple of others--""Someone to Turn Out the Lights"" and ""Spin-a-rama""--that are miracles of resourcefulness, economy, righteousness, and compassion.
