The Junkyard Dog
by Robert Campbell
***Edgar Award Winner*** – The Junkyard Dog — Chicago 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 is the 27th Ward, and anything that happens there is his business. Even murder.
So, when an anti-abortion demonstration ends with a bomb blast that kills a pretty young girl and an old woman, Flannery takes it personally. But someone’s stonewalling the investigation, and Flannery’s starting to wonder if the bombing was political, or as a cover-up for murder. Something smells rotten — from the Gold Coast to the South Side. And when the killer goes after Flannery’s lady love, Flannery doesn’t just get mad — he gets as mean as a junkyard dog — on the scent of the dirty politics mixed with passion and revenge, a very deadly combination . . .

The 600 Pound Gorilla
by Robert Campbell
*Edgar Award Winning Author* – From the outset, it promised to be an extraordinary assignment for Jimmy Flannery – Chicago tough-guy and precinct captain of the 27th ward. Freezing winter temperatures had overloaded the generator at Lincoln Zoo and now Baby – the city’s favorite gorilla – needs a place to stay.
Flannery thinks he’s found the perfect sanctuary, even though the Paradise Baths are better known as a social hot-spot for Chicago’s gay community. But when two men are found beaten to death in the Paradise steam room, only Flannery believes that Baby is innocent. And soon he is forced to put his own life in danger to prove it.
“From Robert Campbell, the author of The Junkyard Dog – We expect good writing, and the 600 Pound Gorilla does not disappoint – an expert piece of work in which wacky humor and high seriousness are palatably mixed.” – The New York Times Book Review
