Created by Jeremiah Healy
RORY CALHOUN (yes, his mom had a crush on the actor) is a new P.I. by Jeremiah Healy, who makes his debut in "Aftermath" in Robert Randisi's 2002 collection, Most Wanted. It's billed in the intro as "one of the first mystery stories to acknowledge the horrific events in our country of September 11, 2001." All in all, though, one gets the feeling this Florida eye, a transplanted snowbird, would rather play tennis.
And in fact, Rory reappears in a follow-up story entitled "A Debt to the Devil" in Murder is My Raquet, a tennis-themed antholgy edited by Otto Penzler, and we're told that he's a former tennis pro who never quite made it to the big time due to a chronic knee problem and a "mediocre first serve." To help make ends meet, he started doing leg-work for private investigators and has recently gotten his full Florida investigator's license. He's recently moved to South Florida, and lives at the Lauderdale Tennis Club.
Healy, of course, is best known as the creator of John Francis Cuddy. He also writes as Terry Devane.
