Praise

“Achingly good. . . . James Crumley is one of America’s great undiscovered writers.”—The A. V. Club

“Drawn with panache. . . . Like an overbudget western directed by an LSD-addled Raymond Chandler.” —Publishers Weekly

“What Raymond Chandler did for the Los Angeles of the Thirties, James Crumley does for the roadside West of today.” —Harper’s

“Crumley can write scenes that are unique to him. He’s is the rare writer who uses style, not tricks.”—San Jose Mercury News

“If you like your detective fiction tough and tenacious you will love James Crumley. . . . No one does it better.”—The Houston Chronicle

“Crumley is one of the finest additions to the private eye genre. . . . [He] brings to his books . . . a knowledge and understanding of the American psyche few writers in any genre have managed.” —Buffalo News
