Dog on Fire

Dog on Fire - Gregory S. Fallis Sweeney and Wheeler, two detectives who couldn't be more different yet seem to compliment each other perfectly. One a northern ex-cop, the other a southern ex-journalist. Together they tease and taunt each other through the exceedingly random series of cases they get. While Joop Wheeler is easily my favourite of the two characters, Greg manages to write them both as unique, credible and likeable characters. Each case is enjoyable, not only to find out how the case is resolved (and there are twists, don't worry) but to enjoy how they get there.

It seems obvious that Greg enjoys writing these characters, and that feeling rubs off onto the reader. Hopefully his other Sweeney and Wheeler novel will get a rerelease...
