No Man's Dog

A "Fang" Mulheisen Mystery by Jon A. Jackson

No Man's Dog by Jon A. Jackson

Review: Jon A. Jackson continues to deliver with No Man's Dog, the solid tenth entry of the Detective Sergeant Mulheisen mystery series.

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. They must trust each other though their history suggests neither can be trusted. They make an unlikely team, but Jackson's handling of their time together in the book is exceptional.

Colonel Tucker and his minions are entertaining in their own right and continue to be an important element in the series. The weakest part of the story involves the terrorists and their camp. It's all a bit unbelievable and excessive. Despite this minor failing, No Man's Dog is highly recommended.
