Review:

Need to know the titles of the 16 Johnny Fedora secret agent books that Shaun Lloyd McCarthy wrote under his Desmond Cory pseudonym between 1951 and 1971? See page 67 of this immediately essential guide to everything you ever wanted to learn about mysteries written by men. The volume is a worthy successor to Willetta L. Heising's Detecting Women. On page 142, you'll find the four Nick Duffy books that famous British novelist Julian Barnes wrote under the name of Dan Kavanagh, and on page 154 you'll find out how to pronounce John T. Lescroart's last name--(LES-kwah). In fact, there's a need-to-know nugget on every page of this informative and entertaining enterprise.

From Library Journal:

This helpful guide to some 600 contemporary male mystery writers, their series, and their protagonists is the much-anticipated partner to Heising's multi-award-winning Detecting Women 2 (Purple Moon, 1996), and it certainly satisfies expectations. Preceded by a useful introduction, "How To Use This Book," the text is divided into eight chapters: "Master List," "Mystery Types," Series Characters," Settings," "Title Chronology," "Alphabetical List of Titles," "Pseudonyms," and "Mystery Book Awards." By far the largest chapter, "Master List" includes biographical data, a checklist of titles, American publication dates, series characters, awards, and some movie tie-in information. Mysteries are divided into four typesApolice procedural, private-eye, espionage, and those amateur detectives, with 69 mystery backgrounds, e.g., ecclesiastical and religious, black detectives, applied to all but espionage. All works are cross-referenced by title, setting, chronology, and mystery type. A quicker resource than big books like the St. James Guide to Crime & Mystery (St. James, 1996, 4th ed.), this is a handy reference anywhere mysteries are popular.ARex Klett, Mitchell Community Coll., Statesville, NC
