Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Those who relish Burke’s patented mix of supercharged violence and overheated passions are in for a treat.”  Publishers Weekly
“Burke has a wonderful sense of place; his settings always seep into and flavor the story. His characters are also vivid, angry, and touched hard by the world’s cruelty, although sometimes it seems that the difference between the bad guys and the good guys is that the bad guys enjoy the mayhem and carnage they cause just a little more.”  Library Journal
“Burke’s patented lyricism has never been more beautiful—or seemed more fresh—than in his descriptions of the Montana landscape, and he does a wonderful job of contrasting that harmonious and peaceful setting with the jarring dissonance of failed human relations.”  Booklist
