An attempt to incorporate the Jimmy Hoffa story into the Mulheisen series, including an explanation of Hoffa's fate. The book with that title was very good. This one may be well done, but it does not appeal to me. A lot of stuff about jazz music scene.

This is my first exposure to Jon Jackson's Sergeant Mulheisen mysteries, so the reader will have to forgive me if I have missed any of the continuity. I was attracted to the book because I am a long time Detroit area resident, and I wanted to see what a Jackson had done with familiar turf. I anticipated the hard-boiled nature of the story, but was surprise (pleasantly) by Jackson's penchant for characters that at tough, but have some extra bit of intelligence or skill. They don't always shoot at each other; sometimes they do a jazz solo instead.
'Man with an Axe' is, on one level, the ultimate Jimmy Hoffa story. Hoffa's rise to power and his complete and mysterious disappearance are the quintessential Detroit story. The stuff of which urban legends are made. Jackson does a creditable job or creating the legend anew, told from the view point of Mulheisen's old partner, Grootka. The story is in layers, first the tale of Hoffa, then the tale of Grootka himself, and finally Mulheisen's own story in present day Detroit. Each tale contains its share of things larger than life; and all seem orchestrated posthumously by Grootka's ghost.
The story spans many of Detroit's subcultures, from Mafia to up-scale black. There is a persistent jazz theme that runs through it, and, in many cases, the rhythms of improvisation unfold in the text. It is tempting for a reviewer to overuse the jazz metaphor, for it is inescapable. Mulheisen's task at hand is to discover why there has been a sudden increase in curiosity about Hoffa's death. To do that he must discover what really happened in the first place. Hoffa's story starts out with a chance meeting with a talented saxophone player and ends in a cabin up north. But, Grootka realized that it wouldn't end there and laid out a plan that will bring it to closure years later. If Fang Mulheisen can get far enough into Grootka's head to figure it out without getting shot himself.
I found the characters interesting and whimsical, from gangsters to jazzmen. To be honest, the story has many echoes of Detroit as it is and was, but Mulheisen's town is still a city of the imagination rather than reality. I don't think that is a flaw, for this Detroit is far more interesting than the one in which I work. Jackson gives it a spooky glamour that is hard to pin down. In evidence is the skill of a sharp storyteller who deserves far more critical notice than he has gotten. My feeling is that I would have benefited from reading a few stories from earlier in the series, simply for more familiarity with the characters. Otherwise, it stands quite well on its own.

Think of how much fun that would be. I started reading Jackson when he first started and would catch back up to him every four or five years. So I am catching back up. It was great to see Grootka resurrected and so in character. This novel is a lot of fun with all the Jackson trademarks of character, Detroit life, music, etc. The only other writer in this genre who I think is as good as Jackson in similar ways (DC life and popular culture) is George Pelacanos. If you are new to this author don't start here. It pays to start at the beginning simply because it is more fun that way.

Sometimes, when you’re a good writer, and you’ve demonstrated mastery of your craft, you can break the rules and get away with it. Here’s a hard-boiled police-procedural that is very different. Even so, the details are right, the writing is of a high order and every footfall is correct.

Detroit homicide detective Fang Mulheisen is between cases. He’s just working in the department, cleaning up things, doing the tedious, routine day to day stuff that is the bulk of most detectives’ daily order. Then he gets some weird e-mail cartoons. Then he gets some tenuous links to a case his mentor, detective Grootka, long since deceased, apparently handled off the record.

Next thing you know, an attractive young historian turns up in Mulheisen’s office asking for help with a project she’s doing. Subject of her project? Grootka. Mulheisen never believed in coincidence. There are some other characters in this novel as well, characters that are long dead. Jimmy Hoffa, for example; also some formidable musicians from Detroit’s heyday of blues and jazz music.

The structure of this novel is unusual for a hard-boiled police story. It bounces back and forth in time and Mulheisen, who is trying to reconstruct some complex events related by a man not very literate and, since he’s dead he can’t be asked for explanations (Grootka). So all in all, readers will have to pay close attention to keep track of what’s going on. If you do, the experience will be very satisfying, and you’ll get as good an explanation of what happened to Jimmy Hoffa as one could ask for.
