"An intelligent horror story with skin-crawling entertainment. Crooked Tree is one of the rare books that uses Indian lore with intelligence and respect. The result is an unusual thriller whose supernatural roots are native witchcraft and the werewolf-like concept of 'the Grizzly Woman'."
"An intense, meticulously researched thriller that handles Native American beliefs with both suspense and dignity."
---New York Times
"It makes your hair stand on end. A cross between Jaws and The Exorcist."
---Liz Smith, New York Newsday
"Crooked Tree is a story of considerable suspense and plentiful action. The author does a professional job of building a suspension bridge for disbelief."
"Crooked Tree is flat-out terrific. Well-crafted with lush descriptions of Michigan's north country, this book will send chills down your spine as it builds suspense upon suspense."
---Detroit Free Press
"Crooked Tree is a well-conceived thriller, intelligently crafted. It was a book that I could not put down."
---James Kirkwood, playwright, A Chorus Line
