The explosive debut novel featuring hard-nosed cop "Fang" Mulheisen-from an author who "stands right up there with the best chroniclers of urban crime" (The New York Times). The city of Detroit doesn't have many places anyone would exactly call "nice." But the exclusive enclave of Indian Village is an oasis of calm surrounded by urban blight. At least until a beautiful young heiress is murdered during a home robbery gone horribly wrong . . . if that really is what happened. Detroit's Det. Sgt."Fang" Mulheisen isn't so sure. The coincidences of the case are just a bit too coincidental, the ruthlessness of the crime goes way beyond a punk thief looking for a quick score, and the victim's big-banker husband may owe some very bad people more than just money. What they want is blood. And Mulheisen may be the only man who can keep them from getting it. With gritty detail, whip-smart dialogue, and street-level action, "the elaboration of the plot and the quality of the writing put The Diehard pretty close to the top of its class" (The New York Times Book Review).
