Additional Information

Eleven stories of jealousy, lunacy, and murder told in the uproarious style of Joan Hess, the creator of Maggody, Arkansas.

As he waits in the checkout line at Consumers Market, Jay Jay Anderson is certain of one thing: His wife, Cookie, deserves to die. In the tabloids, he finds a story about a man whose wife was kidnapped by Big Foot, and Jay Jay can’t imagine a luckier fellow. But Cookie is a wino with nicotine-stained fingers, badly bleached hair, and a voice shrill enough to cut glass. . . . Big Foot wouldn’t be interested. If Jay Jay wants out of his rotten marriage, he’ll have to kill Cookie himself.
“Big Foot Stole My Wife!” is classic Joan Hess: diabolical, hilarious, and utterly unpredictable. This sparkling collection of stories, which includes two tales culled from the Maggody police files of beloved small-town sheriff Arly Hanks, shows a master of comic mysteries operating at her very best.
Fans of the comic small-town mysteries of Donna Andrews or Liz Lipperman will adore Joan Hess. The creator of the outrageous Ozarks hamlet of Maggody, she’s one of the funniest authors in mystery fiction, and these stories show her at her laugh-out-loud best.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

These short stories are quick reading. Some of them are first-works by their authors. I enjoyed this book.
Hess never disappoints
When it comes to blending humor and mystery, few do it quite as well as Joan Hess. Her Arly Hanks mysteries set in quirky backwater Maggody as well as her Claire Malloy cozies have long been favorites. Fortunately for readers, many of the novels are now available in ebook form.

Big Foot Stole My Wife and Other Stories gives readers a sampling of Joan Hess’s uniquely humorous and often surprising writing. If you are like me, the various twists will leave you smiling, even or perhaps especially when justice isn’t served. The stories vary widely in style, but all are cleverly plotted. As a bonus, she has included a few stories featuring Arly Hanks and one featuring Claire Malloy.

Whether you are a long time fan of Joan Hess or a newcomer looking for some light mysteries with a humorous twist, Big Foot Stole My Wife and Other Stories is an anthology that will leave you smiling.
