Top-notch action scenes, engaging characters both major and minor, masterful dialogue and a passionate sense of place make this a fine series.”
"Heywood takes the reader right along through Michigan's Upper Peninsula. His love for the land, and its animals, shines through the book. And you have to love a story whose action slows when the hero is called to a moose-vehicle collision."
--Gracie Gregg, Times Record News
"Mr. Heywood has crafted an entertaining bunch of characters, highly eccentric and in some cases lovable, and set them in the Upper Peninsula wilderness [of Michigan], where independence is a byword and fast action is inevitable. An absorbing narrative twists and turns in a setting ripe for the corruption that inevitably occurs when obscene profits encounter a simpler way of life."
--Laurie Trimble, The Dallas Morning News
"Compelling ideas and taut suspense distinguish the second in Heywood's series...When the action takes over, Heywood is incomparable. One hopes Heywood has a long writing career ahead of him."--Publishers Weekly (starred), (for Blue Wolf in Green Fire)
In Praise of earlier books in the series:
"Crisp writing, great scenery, quirky characters and an absorbing plot add to the appeal of this memorable first entry in a promised series of 'woods cop' mysteries."--The Wall Street Journal (for Ice Hunter)
