Rick O. Shea
Created by Douglas Newell
Part-time private eye (the government cut his job-retraining
program) RICK O. SHEA wages his lonely war against bureaucracy
in a couple of very funny stories. Part gleeful parody
of old pulp and radio detective dramass, part 100% unadulterated
lunacy, Rick's adventures are currently available on tape. Like
the blurb goes: "Rick knows the two inescapable things in
life are death and bureaucrats. Hey, who d'ya think invented taxes?"
- "...Mystery readers might want to imagine Dashiell Hammett
by way of, say, Dave Barry or Woody Allen.... Both episodes feature
snappy dialogue, nutty characters and top-notch performances.
A first-rate production that will appeal not only to mystery
fans, but to anyone who enjoys a good spoof." (David
Pitt of The Mystery Review)
- "A rollicking take-off of radio mysteries..." (BookViews)
- The Rick O. Shea Mysteries (1997)
Includes "Trouble in Black Silk" and
"It Smells Like Murder."...Buy
