I love Lisa Cody, but how do you expect me to start a discussion about her? Hey, you guys out there, have you ever read Lisa Cody? If not, your life sucks! Respond, please.

I have never read a Lisa Cody book. Please tell me a little about her and books. Which do I start with? I am always interested in author I have never heard of.

A stranger is a friend you have yet to meet

I've read a few of Liza Cody's books. I liked them a lot, but she is very difficult to find here in Sweden, even in England I had a hard time finding books by her. I'll try to recommend some of the ones I've read.

A stranger is a friend you have yet to meet

Backhand Anna Lee, Private Investigator at Brierly Security, is stifled by their mean-minded respectability. She is now merely a saleswoman of burglar alarms with no gaps in her diary for any surprises. Until, that is, she meets an American client, Lara Crowther, for a game of tennis. Lara employs Anna to trace some missing knitwear - and then the missing daughter of its designer.

The tangled skein has loose ends both sides of the Atlantic and Anna, glad to leave the muddle of her own life in London, finds herself in Florida, playing a dangerous game whose rules she does not know, and where, under the glitter and the suntans, evil intent flourishes.

I don't know how that description strikes you, but I liked this one

Liza Cody is great. I have read four of her Anna Lee books. Dupe, Stalker, Headcase and Backhand. Are there any others? I didn't enjoy Bucketnut as much as these four.

I prefer the ones with Eva Wylie. Anyone who's read the latest, Monkey Wrench (I think)?

Liza - "Under Contract" is another Anna Lee mystery. I also did not care for "Bucketnut".

Hi Liza Cody fans:

For "Anna Lee" fans, did you know there was a series done in England in the early 90s starring Imogen Stubb. It was shown on A&E. That's how I got hook on the "Anna Lee" series. There are differences between book and series, but both were very enjoyable.

Have not read any of the Eva Wylie series yet, but I have couple of the books.

Later, Nance

Never hire a ferret to do a weasel's job

Nance - I read at another site that one of the reasons Liza Cody started concentrating on the Wylie series (in which Anna Lee plays a minor but regular role) was her dissatifaction with the Anna Lee TV series. I didn't think they were that bad, but I can see how the author of the books would hate the TV adaptation.

Nance - 10:36pm Jan 21, 2000 PST(#10 of 10)

Rik: Really? That's too bad. Of course, a writer is never satisfy with what others do with their creations. I hope she goes back and write more Anna Lee mysteries. In my case, if it wasn't for the TV series I wouldn't have read her mysteries at all. Oh, well, I like them both and do see them and appreciate each in their own way.
