COLD CASE

There’s a serial killer in the city and the police are stymied. Women’s bodies, dressed in white slips and wedding veils, are being left in city parks. The police are desperate to find the killer before he strikes again. They need someone who thinks outside the lines. Someone with a fresh set of eyes.

Who better than the city’s laziest private investigator, Dev Haskell?

As Dev meets with family, friends, and workmates of the victims one thing becomes clear—

No one has a clue!

Someone, somewhere, has to know something! Don't they?

Meanwhile, Dev’s life on the romance circuit seems about to change… and not for the better!

It appears Taffy’s friend, Allison, thinks Taffy should raise her standards.

Right now, about the only sure thing in Dev’s life is Morton, his Golden Retriever.

"Cold Case is Dev Haskell at his best. Between Detective Sergeant Norris Manning trying to charge him with every crime in the city and Allison Dankwell attempting to ruin his romance with Taffy, Dev has his hands full. What better time to try and solve 6 cold case murders…"

MURDER & MAYHEM IN THE ICE CREAM TRUCK BIZ.

"Laugh a minute story line in another of Faricy's deliciously engaging worlds..." -The Irish Gazette

Skirt-chasing, wise-cracking, dysfunctional Private Investigator Dev Haskell leaves his usual stool at the Spot Bar to take on what looks like a cakewalk job: keep ice cream mogul Mr. Swirlee alive. Turns out Mr. Swirlee is anything but a cakewalk... He's a ruthless "entrepreneur" with a flash temper, a mean streak a mile wide, and a laundry list of people who want to do him in---including his sex-crazed girlfriend Lola. Things go from bad to worse when Dev discovers his client is running a gambling ring in his ice cream trucks. When Dev's revelation is detected, a dead body ends up in the trunk of his car. Once again, our hero is in over his head. Thank God for Dev's sometime friend, felon Tony "Dog" Colli, who agrees to help out.

Murder, mayhem, romance, double cross, and bodies pile up as Dog and Dev follow their difficult client through the streets of St. Paul in the steamy summertime, spinning a colorful yarn with a healthy serving of the bizarre. A fast paced tale of bottom feeders and the criminal class, Mr. Swirlee will leave you at turns gasping and laughing your way through Dev Haskell's screwy world.

Members of KRAZ, a radio station that considers itself "the voice of America's future," need protection from an apparent death threat. A cursory investigation leads Dev to the conclusion he's just landed his dream job: providing security for people who don't actually need it. But alas, the dream ends the moment someone shoots at his clients in broad daylight.

Things quickly fly out of control when Dev suddenly finds himself under the police microscope, literally tied up in a relationship with an unpredictable woman, and dodging a growing pile of bodies that all seem to be linked to him.

Amazon US | Amazon CA | Amazon UK | Amazon AU | Amazon IN  

Last Shot is the SIXTH offbeat (and very funny) mystery in the Dev Haskell Private Investigator series.

Dysfunctional PI Dev Haskell receives a request from beautiful, red-headed Desi Quinn to investigate the trumped-up charges that ruined her life and sent her to prison six years ago. Desi's life was destroyed after a brief relationship with upstanding citizen, Man-of-the-Year Gaston Driscoll, who just happened to be her boss. She views Dev as her last hope--her last shot--but the impossibly dangerous scenario she describes makes Dev think the investigation would be out of his league; he politely declines.

As Desi's story slowly unravels, Dev realizes (under a mountain of guilt) that he made a huge mistake. He embarks on a mission to make things right, only to become a killer's next target. An entertaining tale of intrigue, rank ineptitude, and raucously entertaining one night stands, Last Shot is another funny, fast paced, engrossing thriller from Minnesota’s master of the bizarre.

In Hitchcockian fashion, the telephone rings at two in the morning. PI Dev Haskell answers, half-asleep, to a giggling woman named Danielle. It seems she's found his phone number on a bathroom stall. She's called Dev "for a good time," but what she really wants is for him to deliver a simple message to her former business partner.

It's all fun and games (not to mention funny) til someone goes missing. Next thing he knows, our fair but bumbling hero can’t find his client or her business partner, which turns out to be the least of his problems when he finds himself on the hook for murder, and suddenly haunted by a multitude of childhood secrets.

In a bizarre but compelling mixture of suspense, family drama, and offbeat comedy, Dev once again messily balances both sides of the law in a wacky adventure that will keep you on your toes while laughing out loud.

Mike Faricy once again proves himself to be Minnesota's Master of the Bizarre.

When the city's laziest Private Investigator Dev Haskell spots his old flame Karen Riley in The Spot bar, she's changed--for one thing she's no longer Karen Riley, now she's Crickett, and then there's the stroller with ten month old Oliver. Dev hangs on and does the math: ten months plus nine months equals when?

It seems Crickett's sometime lover Daryl has been caught in possession of some drugs, and she thinks they may have been planted on him. But five million dollars worth? Tough to hide that much in your pocket. Dev starts looking under rocks and quickly uncovers local crime lord Tubby Gustafson and his psychopathic enforcer, Bulldog. Things seem to go downhill rather quickly from there as Dev finds himself literally running for his life.

Crickett is a hilariously entertaining hard-boiled mystery, with just enough chills to keep you on the edge of your seat. A delightful read with a heavy dose of corner cutting and misbehavior to go with the beverage of your choice.

Jackie Van Dorn, Tubby's attorney adds a special brand of polished sleaze to the entire affair. And, just when you think things couldn't possibly get any worse, Tubby's psychopathic enforcer, Bulldog shows up and seems to have more than a passing interest in Dermot's death.

Best in Show! Dog Gone is the Tale of Two Tail-Chasers
Private investigator Dev Haskell’s new lady friend Maddie comes with strings attached: the loosely-knotted tie of her short black silk kimono, and the leash to Morton, her handsome Golden Retriever.
It’s always a sexy mystery when Dev’s on duty, but this caper takes a turn toward buddy adventure when Dev agrees to pet-sit. On their first evening stroll, Dev and Morton are charmed to meet the lovely Princess Anatasia, a purebred Standard Poodle angling for Best In Show title in the Blessington Kennel Club competition the Super Bowl of regional dog competition. But when the princess’ owner gets in a tussle with a local gambling heavyweight, Dev steps in to help, and the prim and proper world of show dog competition is revealed to be, above all, a competition, plus a big attraction for professional gambling! And these guys are playing for high stakes.
It turns out somebody’s trying to keep Princess Anastasia from competing in the show. Dev gets hired to stop them and fortunately, he’s got backup this time: a love struck canine hero. As the suspense builds, a surprisingly touching bond develops between Dev and Morton, and why not? The pair have a lot in common: favored foods and beer brands, preferred places to stick their noses, and a seat-of-the-pants approach to dealing with bad guys.
They got it right when they said, “Faricy’s characters inhabit a world just below the surface of polite society”.

COLD CASE

There’s a serial killer in the city and the police are stymied. Women’s bodies, dressed in white slips and wedding veils, are being left in city parks. The police are desperate to find the killer before he strikes again. They need someone who thinks outside the lines. Someone with a fresh set of eyes.

Who better than the city’s laziest private investigator, Dev Haskell?

As Dev meets with family, friends, and workmates of the victims one thing becomes clear—

No one has a clue!

Someone, somewhere, has to know something! Don't they?

Meanwhile, Dev’s life on the romance circuit seems about to change… and not for the better!

It appears Taffy’s friend, Allison, thinks Taffy should raise her standards.

Right now, about the only sure thing in Dev’s life is Morton, his Golden Retriever.

"Cold Case is Dev Haskell at his best. Between Detective Sergeant Norris Manning trying to charge him with every crime in the city and Allison Dankwell attempting to ruin his romance with Taffy, Dev has his hands full. What better time to try and solve 6 cold case murders…"
