Review:

Races along. In a word: FRAUGHT * The Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin, Australia, on THE SILVER BEAR * Brilliant, intense portrait of a professional hit man...Hired to murder an improbable victim, his intrinsic alienation sees him seemingly proceeding towards his own death, the assignment hastening the inevitable. The balance and rhythm of Haas's first novel are exemplary as Columbus struggles to stay ahead...cinematic-style story construction, cliffhangers and urgent narrative pace. This is the kind of novel that leaves you uncomfortably uncertain of what you feel and whether it is proper to identify with Haas's protagonist. * The Australian on THE SILVER BEAR * Highlights of Haas's cinematic thriller include a cross-country junket, quick reversals, lightning violence and a surprising denouement...Lean work, with every word counting and adding up to more than most authors land in twice the space * Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on THE SILVER BEAR * Blunt and to the point...had me hooked from the beginning. I found myself completely caught up with this character, and those around him, and I couldn't let go of the book until I knew the final outcome. * Book Club Forum on THE SILVER BEAR * Well written, fast-paced, and engaging...a thrilling account of a professional killer at his peak...The cross-country hunt is a fast read; fans of James Patterson and Jeffrey Deaver will enjoy * Library Journal on THE SILVER BEAR * A moody, gloomy but curiously gripping tale * Literary Review on THE SILVER BEAR * A short, sharp, electric shock of a book * Shots Ezine on THE SILVER BEAR * Columbus [US title for HUNT FOR THE BEAR] is absolutely one of the best reads I've had this year . . . Haas is a guy whose work I'll pick up any time he publishes. He's that strong a writer, and Columbus is that strong a book * HitFix.com * A straight-out thriller that moves at an arrow's pace . . . blunt and forceful, crudely elegant in its own beautiful way * truecrimereport.com * Elements of the Robert Ludlum books about Jason Bourne, with a little bit of Grosse Point Blank . . . stylishly written, and could easily be the makings of a film . . . the story is a good one and it's an entertaining read * EuroCrime.co.uk * Impossible not to like . . . engagingly offhand narration . . . Recommended to fans of the Dexter novels, as well as readers of Barry Eisler's John Rain novels, or Lawrence Block's stories about Keller the killer. * Booklist * Haas takes his title character - and the reader - one step further by yanking down the barrier between antihero and audience . . . a nifty modern riff on pulp-fiction . . . a persuasive moral relativism * Las Vegas Weekly *
