Synopsis

In No Man's Dog Jon A. Jackson's longtime hero "Fang" Mulheisen is back for a volatile confrontation with his old nemesis, Joe Service. Add to the mix drug dealers, international terrorists, federal agents acting outside the law, and the hellish fury of crime-babe Helen Sedlacek, and you have a Molotov cocktail. The novel opens with Mulheisen's aged mother nearly slain by an incomprehensible bombing at an orderly environmental protest. Mulheisen resigns from the force to nurse her, but as she recovers he turns his implacable attention to the bombers. The Task Force can't decide if it's anti-environmentalists, international terrorists, or a drug cartel's attempt to quiet a witness or spring him-but Mulheisen quickly notices what the Feds haven't: a gun-happy survivalist on the scene. Some dogs prefer to hunt on their own, and in Badger Games readers saw that Joe Service would run the most vicious beast to earth. Now Mulheisen reminds us he's the old dog in this hunt. Will this fight bring Service and Mulheisen together, at risk of losing the prey?

The 10th installment in Jackson's series to feature Detective Sergeant Mulheisen (after 2002's Badger Games ) delivers sturdy entertainment, though the post-9/11 plot hinges on the sometimes confusing interactions among Mulheisen, criminal Joe Service and FBI operative Colonel Vern Tucker.

There is much to recommend here, but the best aspect of the book is the relationship between Mulheisen and his nemesis, Joe Service, with whom he must team to bring the villains to justice.
