Books by Stephen J. Cannell

Following a successful television career, Stephen segued into the publishing world in 1996 with the release of his first best-selling mystery novel, The Plan, which was followed by four more stand-alone novels. In late 2000, Stephen introduced Shane Scully, the street-wise LAPD detective who followed his instincts and played by his own rules to catch criminals. The character was such a success that Stephen wrote nine more best-selling Shane Scully novels. Stephen also found time to write two more stand-alone novels. Before his death last year, Stephen completed the last Shane Scully novel, Vigilante, which will be released in December of 2011.
