Praise for The Ways of Wolfe

"The Ways of Wolfe exhibits James Carlos Blake's hallmark fast-paced, pummeling style, but it also proves to be a character study and a sort of examination of the allure of the unlawful . . . A rewarding, vividly wrought, gripping ride."--Arizona Daily Star

"Atmospherically, the book is rich and intense. The hot southwestern border is as distinctive and central to the book as snowy Minnesota was for Fargo . . . Blake's world [is] filled with hard men and mute consciences. Fans of dark noir about the seedier aspects of humanity will find a lot to appreciate."--Strand Magazine

"Blood loyalty, forgiveness, and the consequences of violence all figure in Blake's outstanding fourth Border Noir featuring the Wolfes . . . Tough, muscular prose complements Blake's powerful storytelling."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"You must read James Carlos Blake's books . . . every page, every paragraph, every book is a gem. His latest offering is no exception . . . [Blake's] characters are instantly memorable . . . his plots twisting and turning in their unpredictability from beginning to end . . . a dark, beautiful slice of border noir that continues Blake's multifaceted exploration of the Wolfe family. I hope that the series goes on forever."--Joe Hartlaub, Bookreporter

"Blake is a writer fans will follow anywhere. He brings the border to life with blunt precision and evokes the lionization of outlaws that can be found there . . . Extremely satisfying, right up to the noir ending."--Booklist

Praise for James Carlos Blake:

"James Carlos Blake has long been one of my favorites, but his Wolfe family saga may be his best work to date . . . Brilliant and uncompromising, Blake again proves why he's one of the best writers working today."--Ace Atkins, on The House of Wolfe

"A writer with as many fine and wonderful skills as those possessed by James Carlos Blake should be well-known and embraced."--Daniel Woodrell, on The House of Wolfe

"Suspenseful . . . Readers who enjoy action, adventure and lethal weaponry will relish every moment."--Washington Post, on The Rules of Wolfe

"[Blake] writes of grisly death and violence like a singing Gaelic bard . . . [A] tough, honed-to-the-bone thriller."--Dallas Morning News, on The Rules of Wolfe

"A hard-edged, fast-moving thriller that will hold your attention hostage--good luck getting away."--Booklist (starred review), on The House of Wolfe
