another solid episode in the series deftly drawn locations and the long running characters like Humphrey, formerly The Fat Man who has been losing significant weight by eating lots of hot peppers and the ongoing slow chase by Mulheisen of Joe Service et al Big Sky High School Missoula retained 2009 This is my introduction to Jon A Jackson, and while his quirky style and off kilter cast of characters worked quite well in certain places, in a chapter here, or a snatch of action there, it didn t all quite gel together for me Part of this could be down to the fact that Jackson himself, in the afterword, notes that there are multiple or at least two versions of Dead Folk in circulation and that my copy is an earlier iteration than the one you may get your hands on Dead Folk follows life of the lam for a mob hit man and general fixer named Joe Service, who manages to get himself sideways with the law, at least two women, and a small army of Tongans Tonga s a Polynesian sovereign state , as well as a world weary and sympathetic lawman on Service s trail It s nothing personal between Service and Detective Mulheisen, just cops robbers, and their slightly poignant rapport is one of the book s strong suits The book s McGuffin is an undisclosed amount of laundered cash for which Mr Service and an old Frenemy in the Detroit mob are jockeying The book s beauty and it has a couple things to recommend it lies in the grace notes, the quirks of the characters and the way certain patches of dialogue ring true That the book is also tinged with something supernatural centering on a cone headed blues man with spatulate fingers could have given the book some points in its favor, but Mr Jackson doesn t develop this thread and lets it dangle Some of the scenes are rushed as well, and there s some info dumps a particularly noisome recurrent bit about how real roadblocks aren t like the ones in movies as well as a bit of Deux Ex Machina that involves the intervention of a satellite in space, when some good old gumshoeing would have sufficed As with every book put out by the tragically defunct McMillan Press, the book is a beautiful artifact and objet d art in and of itself, with rich crosshatched illustrations and marginalia that remind me of R Crumb s work done by someone using the same handle as the hit man in the book , as well as handsome binding and thick paper stock you just don t see any If you ve ever seen the old Black Sparrow editions of Charles Bukowski s and John Fante s works before Ecco acquired the imprint you re in the neighborhood of the quality on offer here, which undoubtedly makes the book a collector s item.Also it bears repeating that while this story croaks as much as sings, Jon A Jackson is a good writer, and reminds me a bit of a cross between Tom Kakonis and Charles Willeford If you like your noir a little elliptical and shaggy, and a little less straightforward, you may really groove on this one and cast a pox upon my minority report. Fantastic book All of Jon s books are winner And a Great Missoula, Montana, Author for a Detroit guy. |Download Book ♺ Dead Folks: A Detective Sergeant Mulheisen Mystery ☳ Amazing EPub, Dead Folks A Detective Sergeant Mulheisen Mystery Author Jon A Jackson This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Dead Folks A Detective Sergeant Mulheisen Mystery, Essay By Jon A Jackson Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You
