The Blind Pig
A Detective Sergeant Mulheisen Mystery
978-0-8021-3706-7 • $11.00 • Paperback • Aug. 2000
The Blind Pig opens as a cop kills an armed intruder and two hit men shoot a jukebox. It would seem an open-and-shut case, but the deceased turns out to have been a hit man for the mob, and Mul find himself smack in the middle of a gun-running plot. A “delicious kumquat” of a woman is using her own brand of ammo on Mulheisen in the after-hours of Detroit jazz. Mulheisen knows the shootings revolve around a young man who’d struck it rich in trucking—and then everything explodes when someone pulls off a million-dollar heist. The take? Sleek, beautiful guns—enough to start a war.
