Andy Hayes

Created by Andrew Welsh-Huggins

ANDY HAYES is a disgraced Ohio State football quarterback who, two decades later, finds himself a Columbus, Ohio private eye; and one whose cases often drop him right into the centre of controversial issues.

But he comes about it naturally — his creator, Andrew Welsh-Huggins, is a writer and editor with the Associated Press in Columbus, Ohio who has written extensively on capital punishment, the drug trade, and politics. He’s also the author of several non-fiction books, including No Winners Here Tonight: Race, Politics, and Geography in One of the Country’s Busiest Death Penalty States and Hatred at Home: Al-Qaida on Trial in the American Midwest. Read ’em and weep…


  • “With a reporter’s eye and a novelist’s flair, (Welsh-Huggins) raises the bar with each entry in his series. And his deepening development of Andy adds gravitas.”
    — Richmond Times-Dispatch
