Detective Sergeant Mulheisen, from the Chalmers Street Station-9th Precinct-picked his way slowly through the crowd of onlookers and police personnel. He was a six-foot tall man, well built, nearing forty and thickening at the waist. He had sparse, sandy hair and wore no hat, despite the rain-he held a folded newspaper over his head and he smoked a long cigar. He had a mild, pleasant face, but what most people noticed was that his teeth were long. They weren't bucked, just slightly longer than average, and they had distinct spaces between them

The book opens with the disappearance of a man named Franko Bradovich in Kosovo. More of an international intrigue than a mystery. I am not sure I like the semi-legitimate Joe Service.

The Blind Pig opens as a cop kills an armed intruder and two hit men shoot a jukebox. It would seem an open-and-shut case, but the deceased turns out to have been a hit man for the mob, and Mul finds himself smack in the middle of a gun-running plot. Meanwhile, a "delicious kumquat" of a woman is using her own brand of ammo on Mulheisen in the after-hours world of Detroit jazz, and Mulheisen has figured out that the shootings revolve around a young man who'd struck it rich in trucking--and then everything explodes when someone pulls off a million-dollar heist. The take? Sleek, beautiful guns--enough to start a war.

Terrific characters, well-drawn and timeless populate another wild ride around Detroit, featuring (all) nightlife, jazz, sleaze, hangovers and, just to electrify the whole, a shocking robbery- murder.

I thought this book was good. i read about 1 to 2 books a week and I finished it. I don't read books that are not written well. I don't care for books that descibe many characters in the first half of the book and then get to the story. This one didn't do that.

good

Probably my favorite of Jon's books, he has the dialect or slang down like he grew up on the ' wrong side of the tracks'! He's right up there with Elmore Leonard!!

This is the second novel in the series by Jon A. Jackson featuring Detroit Detective Sergeant "Fang" Mulheisen and his nemesis, hit man Joe Service. This early in the series, Service is still on the perimeter of the action; he's more aware of Mulheisen than Mulheisen is of him, but the detective is aware of the fact that some clever, sinister force is lurking out there on the edge of the action.

The case opens when a police patrolman answers a burglary call and shoots to death a man who had broken into a garage. The dead man has no ID and no one can figure out what he might have been looking for in the garage.

The garage in question belongs to an up and coming trucking executive named Jerry Vanni. Vanni is an ambitious young man who's also branching out into juke boxes and vending machines. The plot thickens when two gunmen come into a bar and shoot to death one of Vanni's jukeboxes and one of his cigarette machines.

Mulheisen wonders if Vanni has gotten on the wrong side of the mobsters who usually control things like juke boxes and vending machines in the Motor City. He's also very intrigued by Vanni's secretary, Mandy Cecil, a gorgeous young redhead who seldom wears foundation garments.

Things get even more curious when Mul encounters the charming Ms. Cecil in the middle of the night in the company of some would-be Cuban revolutionaries in a "blind pig," an after-hours club for people like Mulheisen who aren't always ready to go home when the regular bars close at 2:00 a.m.

Before long, all hell is breaking loose and it's a great ride for the reader. Jackson creates memorable characters and there's plenty of witty banter and lots of great action. Mulheisen is a great protagonist and at this point, the reader has seen enough of Joe Service to know that things are probably going to get very interesting later on down the road.

This book should appeal to any fan of crime fiction but anyone interested would be especially well-advised to start this series at the beginning with The Diehard: Detective Sergeant Mulheisen Mysteries.

This is one of Jon Jackson's first novels featuring Sergeant Mulheisen of the Detroit PD, if not the first. The plotting here is excellent; there are a lot of threads that Jackson knows how to interweave, giving this baby momentum. And once in a great while there's a genuinely funny line. The characters are nicely drawn, too. The fly in the ointment is the writing which can be occasionally clunky and awkward. If that doesn't bother you, then this is a nifty little police procedural that, for fans of the genre, will keep you going.
Mulheisen, portrayed as one of the cooler heads on the force, gets drawn into a few different crime threads. A mysterious intruder at the home of a young wealthy trucking magnate is killed by two patrolmen. Two thugs come into a local watering hole and shoot up both the jukebox and the cigarette machine, purportedly owned by the same young trucking tycoon. A great looking woman, a friend of the tycoon, lures Mulheisen with her sexiness and charm, and, later disappears. And a huge gun heist, coupled with a huge crash involving a runaway train, brings things to a head.
Lotta stuff going on here, but Jackson pulls it all together well. Mulheisen has to put the puzzle pieces together and does an admirable job, for sure. It's unfortunate that the choppy writing gets in the way; otherwise, it would rate at least four stars.
Your call.
