The Dirty Lowdown called Mike Faricy America's hottest new mystery writer. Robert Carraher referred to him as Minnesota's Master of the Bizarre. Crime Scene referred to him as the next Carl Hiaasen. Crime Capers said; "Open at your own risk, you won't put him down." Under Cover wrote; "This guy is nuts and one hell of a lot of fun." The Irish Gazette referred to "The laugh a minute story lines of Faricy's deliciously engaging worlds."
His Dev Haskell series books are stand alone, they can be read in any order. His Corridor Man series is written under the pseudonym Nick James and should be read in order. His Jack Dillon Dublin Tales series is written under the pseudonym Patrick Emmett. Faricy's novels are filled with the sort of oddballs we're all curious about, but wisely prefer to keep at a distance. His characters serve not so much as an example as they do a warning to us all. None of them will be saving the world from terrorism, international banking conspiracies or coups to take over the government. Rather, Faricy's characters inhabit a world just below the surface of polite society. The circumstances they find themselves in are usually due to their own bad decisions, but then bad decisions make for interesting stories.
Reminiscent of the late Robert B. Parker, Faricy's tightly woven Dev Haskell series is penned with a delightful sense of humor and even some romance. Entertainment is the name of the game as back slapping, corner cutting, babe magnet Dev Haskell interacts with such quirky characters as ice cream mogul Mr. Swirlee, The D'Angelo brothers, local crime lord Tubby Gustafson, 'Fat Freddie' Zimmerman, former NFL tight end Luscious Dixon, exotic dancer Swindle Lawless, and gorgeous Heidi Bauer. The Dev Haskell novels can be read in any order.
Faricy's debut stand alone novel was Slow, Slow, Quick, Quick. He has also written five additional stand alone titles; Baby Grand, Chow for Now, End of the Line, Finders Keepers and Merlot.
Faricy also wrote the popular novella Irish Dukes under the pen name Jack Tunney in the wildly successful Fight Card series.
Faricy's Corridor Man series written under the pen name Nick James is a bit more gritty than the Dev Haskell series and a lot more violent.
Faricy's Jack Dillon Dublin Tale series is written under the pseudonym Patrick Emmett. US Marshal Jack Dillon is sent to Dublin to escort a prisoner back to the US. Things don't go exactly as planned and trouble ensues. Dillon becomes permanently stationed in Dublin, just to get him out of his boss's hair. Things take an entertaining turn from there, think of a cross between Dev Haskell and James Bond. Enjoy the reads!
Originally from St. Paul, Minnesota, Mike still spends part of his time in the saintly city as well as in Dublin, Ireland. Contact information for Mike is listed just after this shameless list of titles. Thanks for taking the time and be sure to tell 2-300 of your closest friends.
