Reviews of Horse of a Different Color (The Mecana Series Part One) by John L. Lansdale

Phillip N Hancock, Sr reviewed on Feb. 5, 2018

The detective is a bulldog that just will not let go. Threats of being fired, sued and belittled have little or no effect on his pursuit or his determination to solve the case. Lack of support by upper echelon, all the way to the top, seem to spirit his determination to prove he is right in his suspecting a certain person of the crimes. I recommend this book and hope you will be entertained as I was.
