This is the fifth of the ten books by Jon A Jackson featuring Detroit Detective Sergeant Mulheisen and Mulheisen's nemesis, mob enforcer, Joe Service. And it remains my favorite book in an excellent series.

At the end of the previous book, Hit on the House: Detective Sergeant Mulheisen Mysteries, a Detroit mobster was killed and a vast amount of mob money went missing. While other threads in the book were neatly tied off, the murder was not solved and the money was not found. Mulheisen suspects t

I have not read Jackson in awhile, so while in Butte for business I luckily had time to stop off at the indie bookstoe in town, Books & Books. A really great selection of local, MT, NAI, and Western titles, as well as all kinds of other titles as well.
Jackson, from Detroit and basing his earlier Mulheisen titles there, now lives in MT, and this mystery is set in those two cities. He gives a good sense of how run down and empty this copper mining town now is - from over 100,000 population to

I would not recommend this book to anybody. This book varied in detail chapter by chapter, it's conclusion was boring and predictable, and the characters weren't likable. This book got extremely graphic at times (the wrong times). A girl was being raped and it felt you were an eyewitness. Whether it was the goal of the author or not, it made the rest of the story seem plain. Secondly, the conclusion of this book was boring, what we all thought would happen and we all predicted. Lastly, the chara ...more
