SHERIDAN WESLEY is a rich man with a hobby. His New York detective agency is funded by his sizeable personal fortune, so he has no need to take cases that do not interest him. Sounds like an interesting premise, and was interesting enough to get four books published in the series, but average books at best.
Waugh is better known for his police procedurals, but the Wesley books are where his writing career began. After the Wesley stories ran out he went on to write about several other PI's such as Philadelphia's Peter Congdon and Marlowe wannabes Simon Kaye and Philip Macadam. Waugh has also used the pennames of Elissa Grandower, H. Baldwin Taylor and Harry Walker. He was named Grand Master of the Mystery Novel by the Swedish Academy of Detection, in 1989 he was named Grand Master by the MW Aand has authored several books on the writing of crime fiction, including the Edgar nominated: Hillary Waugh's Guide to Mysteries & Mystery Writing.
