MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 15, 1994

BOOK REVIEW

SHALLOW GRAVES by Jeremiah Healy
Released: Aug. 6, 1992

"Cuddy's bloodless romance with assistant D.A. Nancy Meagher; her cat's medical problems; a parade of characters who'd be mute without their all-purpose four-letter words; and a tortoiselike pace—all add up to torpid, under-par fare from an old hand who usually satisfies."
Boston's low-keyed, unflappable p.i. Read full book review >
