When I was in my twenties and thirties, I backpacked the Delaware Water Gap section of the Appalachian Trail and came to know the founder of the Kirkridge Retreat Center in Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania. A huge influence in my life, the founder is mentioned in this local telling of an unsolved murder. While I reject the book's thesis that Eddie's murder was connected to a "sado-masochistic homosexual sex ring," this is an interesting, (warning) dark and sad telling of the history of the Poconos, the Gap and its colorful residents. And because it is so unique a telling, I believe it deserves 4 stars.

The Bottom of the Fox is a must-read role model for aspiring writers and reporters. Mullen is a world-class writer -- you can accurately call him "Hemingwayesque" -- who tells a shocking tale of people literally getting away with murder. It's almost impossible to find books these days written with such solid reporting and in a disciplined and compressed style that for once deserves the now trite word "awesome."

This is a flawed but fascinating examination of a Poconos murder and the culture of violence and corruption that flourished in that region in the '80's. My former colleague, Shaun Mullen, earns major credit for taking on what's clearly an insulated -- and insular -- power structure that's harder than hell to penetrate. You'd need a platoon of fine reporters like Mullen to give this challenging story its due, but at least he's made a dent in the armor of the defenders of injustice in the region he knows so well. And his mini-profiles of the characters who populated the Delaware Water Gap and delineation of the area as a jazz mecca are valuable in themselves. On a human level, the eulogy by a Gap minister for the victim in the case is worth the price of admission.

Shaun Mullen's On the Bottom of the Fox is a joy to behold and a MUST READ role model for aspiring writers or reporters as well as present writers and reporters. Mullen is a world-class writer -- you can accurately call him "Hemingwayesque" -- who tells a shocking tale of literally getting away with murder in a reporting style as compelling as his writing. The take off point is Eddie Joubert's 1981 hacking death but Mullen is anything but a hack: its almost impossible to find books these days written with such solid, compressed reporting in a disciplined style that for once deserves now trite word "awesome." Mullen has a rare ability to seemingly effortlessly chronicle the geographical and societal era where his tale takes place .My only complaint is that he hasn't a host of nonfiction books -- or fiction since he makes you think of Hemingway. If you think there are no REAL role models for reporters or writers these days, just read Shaun Mullen's "The Bottom of the Fox."

I didn't care for how chapter 1 was written but then it turned around and I enjoyed this short book. Living in the area long ago I remember other famous jazz musicians the author left out most notably Maynard Ferguson and Johnnie Coates. Perhaps I skipped a page. The Pocono's has other deep dark secrets the author didn't touch base on or perhaps it's being kept for the sequel. :-)

The story was ok but not meeting my expectations. Being a resident of the area that the book is about, i was expecting a better insight on the incident. Hearsay stories you can hear anywhere.
