Item description for Lucky Dip and Other Stories by Liza Cody...

Liza Cody, the creator of Anna Lee (on which the successful British television/A&E series was based), is one of Britain's most acclaimed mystery and suspense writers. Her Anna Lee novel, Dupe, received the John Creasey Award for Best First Novel from the Crime Writers Association, and Bucket Nut received the CWA Silver Dagger. The title story in Lucky Dip and Other Stories was honored by the Bouchercon, World Mystery Convention with the Anthony for Best Short Story.

Liza Cody's short stories emphasize women who are ensnared in situations not of their own making, but who (usually) survive and (sometimes) prosper. The tales run from 2 lighthearted stories set in Florida, "Where's Stacey" and "A Card or a Kitten" to the dark "Woke Up One Morning," written especially for this volume and which we (the publishers) think will be recognized as one of the finest crime and mystery stories of this decade.

New introduction by the author. Checklist of Liza Cody's crime writings. Cover design by Juha Lindroos, a Finnish artist working in the United States.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lucky Dip and Other Stories?

Tough, funny and moving  Feb 7, 2004
This collection was my first sample of Liza Cody's writing, and as an old school hardboiled fan I have to say that the selection totally blew me away. This is terrific stuff, from the word go. Cody can be funny, poignant and violent in the same paragraph. She is a master of subtle mood swings. The material collected here goes from one end to the other but never with a predictable turn or a false note. There is a rough blue collar sensitivity at work here, which is a rare pleasure these days when most popular writers concentrate on either the rich or the popular. Cody champions the underdog, with sly precision that touches on masterful.

LUCKY DIP is one of the best collections I've read, period. Fast paced, entertaining, with an underlying sense of human nature that completely sneaks up on you with it's understanted accuracy. Brilliant stuff, a great introduction to a marvelous author. Check it out.
