      The Junkyard Dog (Chicago, IL.) Jimmy Flannery (narrator, Irish Catholic, Jim, James, Jimbo, 27th. Ward) is really upset with Joe Asbach (Right-to-Lifers protest leaader).Mrs. Rose Sonia Klutzman (employee) is in the Passavant hospital because Joe detonated a bomb at the Free Abortion Clinic Sperry Ave. Helen Caplet (prostitute, PG, nee Brickhouse) had been killed instantly. Francis O'Shea, Murray Rourke (partner) & Spidone (bomb squad) were at the crime scene.Dr. Chapman, & Mary Ellen D [...]

      This was published in the '80s and could have been topical in the '50s, but it was very well written. In reading it I felt like I was listening to Jimmy Flannery telling me the story of the abortion clinic bombing and the other murders. Not many writers have the ability to make the reader part of the story. Good reading, but remember it is dated.

    • Robert says:

      I love the whole Jimmy Flannery series, and It's too bad Robert Campbell has passed on because I miss the days when the Flannery books came out like clockwork. In some ways Flannery seems a little anachronistic. I'm not from Chicago, so I don't know if they still have wardheelers like Flannery, but it's a great gimmick and a great character, and the stories are well written.

    • Carol says:

      I just love his style of writing. His characters are fun, intersting and real. I found "Nibbled to Death By Ducks" and liked it so much I bought all his books!

    • Peter says:

      First Class Read.I first read this over 20 years ago and had forgotten how good it was. Jimmy Flannery takes you on a journey through the underside of Chicago politics, a world of corruption and favour.At heart it's almost like Don Quixote tilting at windmills, as like the Man from La Mancha, Flannery tries to seek justice and right the wrongs of the powerfulWritten in the Chicago vernacular, the writing can at times appear odd but after awhile it just flows along.Thoroughly enjoyable tale that [...]

      This is an absolutely terrific book that should have wide appeal to many mystery readers. Campbell has taken many classic Hardboiled detective themes and managed to wrap them in an entirely new package and, in doing so, he has created a detective novel entirely unlike anything else out there. Here he has the dogged investigator working on his own with all of the bureaucrats and the mobsters warning him off. He has a story about corruption and girls who come to the big city expecting to make a ne [...]

      JUNKYARD DOG - OkayCampbell, Robert - 1st in Jimmy Flannery seriesChicago is Jimmy Flannery's kind of town. A tough Irishman with street smarts, he's part of a political machine that runs on favors and friendships. Flannery's particular piece of the patronage pie is the 27th Ward, and anything that happens there is his business. Even murder.So when an antiabortion demonstration ends with a bomb blast that kills a pretty young girl and an old woman, Flannery takes it personally. But someone's sto [...]

    • Johnny says:

      There's a great pace to this story, quick with very little fat. A straightforward detective novel, although its biggest strength is that the hero is not a detective. That's nothing new in itself, but choosing a Chicago political figure to do the snooping creates some interesting moral gray areas.In a fictional world where "favors" and "markers" are the most common form of currency, Campbell is able to hurdle one of the hindrances of private eye novels and police procedurals, the fact that in tho [...]

    • Tim Schiraldi says:

      I loved this book! the author has a unique and very readable writing style. A great story built around the "Machine" that is Chicago politics and society, with committeemen, precinct captains, and aldermen. It works on a system of patronage and "favor for a favor". Main character, Jimmy Flannery is a likable, engaging captain of the "Twenty-seventh" precinct. His father, the captain of "the Fourteenth". The "Machine" is well oiled with money, power, and favors in order to take care of those in t [...]

      When I worked in the bookstore, I sold a boatload of Robert Campbell's books, but never read any. I am glad I finally did. I loved this book and I want to read more. I fell in love with Jimmy Flannery, who isn't a cop, but rather in charge of a ward in Chicago. He becomes embroiled in the investigation of the bombing of an abortion clinic in his ward and the story goes from there. I can't wait to read more of Flannery's adventures.

    • Ann says:

      A favor for a fast orJimmy Flannery is basically an honest man trying to get by in the old fashioned Chicago political machine of a favor for a favor. When two people are killed in his precinct, he won't just let their deaths go without answers. This is a great read and a great story.

    • Charles says:

      Chicago-based mystery introducing precinct captain Jimmy Flannery, a cog in Chicago's reknown Democratic machine. A quick, fun read with humor and violence. When a killer stikes a young girl and old woman, and his new girlfriend is threatened when he starts digging into the case, Flannery "gets as mean as a junkyard dog--on the scent of dirty politics mixed with passion and revenge".

    • Jane Alderman says:

      Mean As???Old Chicago or Current Chicago? I suppose it could be either, but I prefer to think it is OLD Chicago. With some of the tightest gun laws in the United States, Chicago is still filled with murders that are never explained. Or, maybe they are explained if someone like Jimmy Flannery cares enough to investigate the very people that could bring him down!

    • Donald Houston says:

      Chicago at its dirty best!Good characters combined with a good storyline save this book's so-so writing! Some tritenessme poor grammar and a sends of pushing the story a long.

    • John Sullivan says:

      Great characters, great duologue, a fun read!James Flannery is one of a kind guy, who is underestimated by those around him. Just when they thinkthey have him under control he let's them clean up the mess they wetetryi gto avoid

    • barbara evans says:

      Looks like a great new seriesI enjoyed the way Flannery ducks and dodges his way through this book. The plot was captivating and keeps you reading till the end.

    • Molly says:

      Tight little mystery. The racial elements are a fascinating part of this 1980s Chicago story.
