Reviews

"A taut, stirring, highly original thriller." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Crumley works with fever on the brow, and the most lyrical and true English sentences I've seen lately. Dancing Bear is a wonder of compression, truth and wisdom." --Barry Hannah "Top-notch . . . an imaginative narrative sense, chaotic and even manic, but violently dramatic . . . excitingly new." --The Los Angeles Times Book Review "A clear triumph." --The Plain Dealer "Dancing Bear is a powerful novel by a writer of extraodinary power who mixes humor with blood, environmental issues with cocaine jangles and post-coital blues, the Dancing Bear Wilderness Area of Montana with peppermint schnapps and hopelessness." --The El Paso Herald Post "Extremely well-written." --The New York Times Book Review "If you like your detective fiction tough and tenacious you will love James Crumely. . . . No one does it better." --The Houston Chronicle "James Crumley is a first-rate American writer.... pyrotechnically entertaining, sexy, compassionate." --The Village Voice
