RARA-AVIS: Re: John Francis Cuddy

I agree with Mark. Cuddy isn't very hardboiled, but he is more fully drawn than a lot of PIs. Unlike Estleman and Parker, who rely more on attitude, Healy never neglects the investigative element of his books. His plots are consistently well thought out, his legal knowledge well broken down. In recent books Healy is somewhat heavy on descriptive detail, but some readers appreciate that.
