I love Jeremiah Healy's work. "John Cuddy", private investigator, is such a down to earth guy, dealing with heart break and loss while trying to rebuild his life. Any reader can easily relate to this character as they enjoy the masterful way Mr. Healy writes the Cuddy mysteries. I highly recommend each of his books!

Book Description
Detective John Francis Cuddy is hired to find the missing son of a noted Massachusetts judge. The boy had vanished. The lush Boston suburb didn't offer a clue, but 14-year-old Stephen Kinnington's old-money family did.

My Review
This was a fun read of a debut novel which was written in the 80's and set in Boston with PI John Francis Cuddy who is a widowed Vietnam vet. The book has a first person perspective which Jeremiah Healy pulls off excellently with a nice sense of humor. It is a page-turner and held my interest until the very surprising ending. The book is fast-paced with a good plot and interesting believable characters. I look forward to reading the 2nd book in the series and I highly recommend this series to those who like mystery/suspense books with a nice but flawed hero.
