Detective "Fang" Mulheisen returns in a rollicking thriller hailed as "a quirky, comic delight that brings to mind early Elmore Leonard" (Booklist). Detroit's Det. Sgt. "Fang" Mulheisen is far from home and hunting for his seemingly unkillable nemesis, a hired gun named Joe Service, who survived a gunshot to the head and escaped a hospital with the help of his beguiling nurse. Joe is in Salt Lake City looking for his longtime lover and partner in crime, Helen Sedlacek, who is in hiding with millions in stolen mob money. The problem is, Joe's injuries have left his memory a bit shaky-even if his skills with a gun are still rock solid-which leads to a whole lot of dead bodies in his wake. And those bodies leave a trail for Mulheisen to track his quarry. But there are a lot of other unpleasant people looking for Joe-all with itchy trigger fingers. And Mulheisen has to get between them all before his manhunt becomes a bloodbath. With a cast of unforgettably mad characters and an explosive climax, this is a "murderously funny" read you won't be able to put down (Kirkus Reviews).
