Editorial Reviews

The New York Times
"An expert writer."
Rapport
"The story is told in pellucid English, illuminated with clever poems, and garnished with a wealth of Indian lore. The reader in search of a novel that is really novel need look no further.
The Chicago Tribune
"Plenty to enjoy here...several surprises and some unexpected plesures."
Mostly Murder
"Hoyt's John Denson adventures stand out. This Seattle-based P.I. deals with cases that are hardly the usual fare. When was the last time you read a novel about a detective's search for the legendary creature known as Bigfoot? Hoyt's characters range from slightly off-center to full-tilt bizarre, with the Northwest setting serving as a welcome change from teh usual mean streets. The plot is also highly original..[with] thrilling moments. ...One expects to enjoy real cliffhangers in a setting such as this, and Hoyt delivers."
Afraid
"Hoyt is one of those writers whose work grabs you right from the start and never lets go."
