“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
