The Confessions of Owen Keane

A collection of stories by

OWEN KEANE RETURNS The Confessions of Owen Keane is the first short fiction collection by the Edgar-nominated and Shamus-winning author Terence Faherty. It brings together six short stories and a novella from the casebook of failed seminarian turned investigator Owen Keane.

Called a "metaphysical detective" by the New York Times and "the ultimate amateur sleuth" by the Drood Review, Keane is a compulsive solver of mysteries. These mysteries can be as public as gang murder and gun running or as private as the loss of faith. But whether the stakes involved are large or small, these tales all feature the hallmarks of Faherty's novels: meticulous plotting, offbeat twists, and what the Philadelphia Inquirer called "a prose style that's a pleasure to spend time with."

Included are two previously unpublished stories, "St. Jimmy," the very first Keane story, and "On Pilgrimage," which was written especially for this collection.

The book also contains a new introduction by the author and a checklist of his novels and short fiction.

The cover painting is by Carol Heyer and the design is by Deborah Miller.
