Reviews

  • Crumley writes like an angel on speed

    Time Out
  • The poet laureate of American hard-boiled literature, superior even to James Lee Burke in his ability to evoke extreme melancholy, gruesome violence and an acute sense of landscape

    Guardian
  • Reading Crumley is like hurtling through an assault course...funny, salty and ruthless...one of the marvels of contemporary crime writing

    Literary Review
  • Like James Ellroy, he is a master of American vernacular, turning tough-guy slang into something like poetry

    Independent
  • James Crumley, a critically acclaimed crime novelist whose drug-infused, alcohol-soaked, profanity-laced, breathtakingly violent books swept the hard-boiled detective from the Raymond Chandler era into an amoral, utterly dissolute, apocalyptic post-Vietnam universe

    New York Times
