Reviews

A short, sharp, electric shock of a book - Shots Ezine on THE SILVER BEARA moody, gloomy but curiously gripping tale - Literary Review on THE SILVER BEARHighlights of Haas's cinematic thriller include a cross-country junket, quick reversals, lightning violence and a surprising denouement...Lean work, with every word counting and adding up to more than most authors land in twice the space - Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on THE SILVER BEARWell written, fast-paced, and engaging...a thrilling account of a professional killer at his peak...The cross-country hunt is a fast read; fans of James Patterson and Jeffrey Deaver will enjoy - Library Journal on THE SILVER BEARBlunt and to the point...had me hooked from the beginning. I found myself completely caught up with this character, and those around him, and I couldn t let go of the book until I knew the final outcome. - Book Club Forum on THE SILVER BEARBrilliant, intense portrait of a professional hit man...Hired to murder an improbable victim, his intrinsic alienation sees him seemingly proceeding towards his own death, the assignment hastening the inevitable. The balance and rhythm of Haas's first novel are exemplary as Columbus struggles to stay ahead...cinematic-style story construction, cliffhangers and urgent narrative pace. This is the kind of novel that leaves you uncomfortably uncertain of what you feel and whether it is proper to identify with Haas's protagonist. - The Australian on THE SILVER BEARRaces along. In a word: FRAUGHT - The Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin, Australia, on THE SILVER BEARHaas takes his title character - and the reader - one step further by yanking down the barrier between antihero and audience . . . a nifty modern riff on pulp-fiction . . . a persuasive moral relativism - Las Vegas Weekly
