For The Shiver in Her Eyes
Award-winning author Roxanne Dunn writes "...This tale mines the gritty underbelly of Minneapolis and turns up gems: a soulless hit man, a heart-stealing woman, a mob-controlled pornographer, and a tattered but loyal PI. Suspenseful, heart-warming, and wonderfully written, just try to put it down..."
For The Cough of Birds
Award-winning author Terry Persun writes "Reminiscent of Robert B. Parker’s Spencer character, Dahms is antagonistic and smart-mouthed—especially with the authorities—but serious and capable when he needs to be."
"Author Brian Anderson follows up the award-winning The Shiver in Her Eyes, his debut novel in the Lyle Dahms Mysteries with the unlikely but oddly captivating hero who finds himself—more than a little reluctantly—at a Renaissance festival. This is a story that will keep readers’ interest for the sharp, biting dialogue and quirky, fascinating characters—and flavored with all those things involved in the world of Renaissance faires—from the costumes, to the period speech patterns and food options. Dahms himself is a treat. Reminiscent of Robert B. Parker’s Spenser PI, his dry humor and smart mouth are a welcome change in mystery fiction. In short, he’s a keeper.
Based on a scale of 1-5, The Cough of Birds merits an 8."
