Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Kole Kills Crow is a perfect romance hero brooding, dangerous, "other" cast in the same mold as a gypsy from the wild moors, or a rogue who is no longer received in Charleston. Kills Crow is a hero of the Native American movement, a terrorist according to the law and possibly a murderer. Now he lives like a fugitive, holed up in a remote cabin, until he is discovered by journalist Heather Reardon. Sexy and feral as his wolf-dog, he possesses an unpredictable cruel streak balanced by a dash of tenderness and sensitivity he is also a maker of fine, highly prized flutes. Once Heather locates him in a honky-tonk, she inveigles him into dancing with her and then convinces him to let her into his life so she can tell his story. "This would be more than an interview. She believed him to be one of a rare breed, maybe even a dying breed of men... a true champion of the people." Thus begins a long tease. There is much inane, double-entendre conversation as the two move inevitably through mistrust to lust to true love. Along the way, there are political issues to settle, and a quest for fairness for Native Americans leads to an intense climax under the Hollywood sign above Los Angeles. Eagle (What the Heart Knows; The Last Good Man) won't disappoint her fans with this spicy, fast-paced tale. (Aug.)Forecast: With more than 35 books to her credit and several awards for her romances, Eagle has a solid following. The political aspect of her latest doesn't overshadow the romance and may increase her readership. National print advertising, a four-city author tour and a teaser chapter in the paperback of The Last Good Man are planned.

From Library Journal

When freelance journalist Heather Reardon heads for the wilds of northern Minnesota in search of the legendary Kole Kills Crow, a Native American activist and fugitive who has purposely dropped out of sight, she has more than just a journalistic interest that his story be told. Not only is he one of her heroes from way back but he is also the father of her seven-year-old goddaughter, whom he will never see unless he deals with his violent and dangerous past. But it isn't until Kole sees a revealing video clip that he reluctantly realizes that he must face his demons if he ever is going to be free. Politics, murder, and betrayal are all part of this sensual, involving spin-off of The Last Good Man (Avon, 2000), which nicely blends romance and activism. Noted for her especially well-drawn heroes and sensitive treatment of Native American issues, Eagle is a RITA-award winning writer and lives in the Minneapolis area.

Customer Reviews

The characters are stereotypical, the dialogue tedious, and the plot leaden.
G. Greene
Her books are filled with sensual tension, witty dialogue, and twists that keep the reader engaged from the beginning to the end.
Sandra Cuppett
Native American issues are the basis of the story, but great characerization, writing and insight make it a complete package.

Heather Reardon is a writer on a mission. She is searching for Kole Kills Crow, a Lakota fugitive with a story to tell. Years ago, Kole was an activist for the Native American cause, trying to make things better for his people. But he dropped out of sight after the death of his wife and his escape from prison.
After Heather discovers Kole in a northern Minnesota bar, her life is forever changed. For she follows the hero of her dreams to his cabin where she begins to know him as the man shaped by the hardships he has endured. Heather and Kole embark on a cross-country journey to other reservations, gathering supporters for their journey to Hollywood, where they plan to make a stand against the bias of the entertainment industry against Native Americans.
Heather struggles to keep her personal attraction for Kole separate from her desire to write his story. And Kole tries to prevent an emotional attraction to Heather, a white woman who has put a dent in his hardened heart.
The banter between Heather and Kole is wonderful, ripe with innuendos and very quick-witted. Their relationship goes very deep, first beginning as purely physical, but gradually changing into an enduring ability to trust each other even in adverse circumstances. For a wonderful read proving that love can transcend anything, YOU NEVER CAN TELL can't be beat.

Kathleen Eagle. You Never Can Tell. New York: William Morrow Pub., 2001. 306 pgs.
Okay Eagle fans; fasten your seatbelts because we are going on one crazy cross-country ride in a beat-up old camper, room for one, maybe. Kathleen Eagle reintroduces Kole Kills Crow, who has a cameo appearance in her last book, The Last Good Man (definitely a 5-star-read), but with a whole new story and adventure for him to pursue.
Kills Crow is in hiding from the world. His past as a Native American activist caused great heartache and hardship and the lost of his beloved wife and child. Now he wants nothing to do with anyone, least of all a nosy, yet persistent, reporter named Heather Riordan who is “a little Cherokee.”
Their travels take them from one reservation and American Indian center to the next while they try to legally bring attention to what really matters in today’s Native American affairs, and where will they find the most readily available cameras for this world-wide attention? You guessed it. Hollywood. However, this is no easy or free ride for any of them. As the few people who still believe in the way it should be band together to start their travels to stand up for themselves, one more time, people keep climbing aboard the caravan.

Riordan is getting it all down. The inside scoop. She is also getting an inside scope of this man-of-her-dreams because she remembers-him-when. Will the unlikely beautiful Heather Riordan find a way to bring peace and a little understanding into the heart of a hardened and wronged man? Will the trip end in triumph or will they go bust on there way west? These are questions the author keeps you guessing as you rattle around in the camper and keep your eyes peeled for whatever happens next!

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on July 26, 2001
Format: Hardcover
Free lance reporter Heather Reardon finds Kole Kills Crow, known for defying the South Dakota National Guard, in a local bar in the Minnesota backwoods. The journalist searched for the recluse to hear his side of the story of what happened in prison after he was convicted of kidnapping during the Guard incident. Just before his sentence ended, Kole fled prison when another American Indian standing near him is killed. Kole and Heather talk with her explaining that she spoke with people from his past such as the actor Barry Wilson, Kole's former mentor. Barry left the cause for Hollywood, allowing Kole to take the rap for the South Dakota incident.
Though he says he is only a flute maker, she and a Native American reporter persuade Kole to lead a Native American rights March on Hollywood to provide a more accurate picture of the American Indian. Along the way, Kole and Heather fall in love even as other American Indians join the march and other people want Kole dead so their exploitation can continue.
Best-selling and award winning author Kathleen Eagle provides readers with an exciting ethnic romance that showcases the modern day American Indian. The story line is very exciting, but it is the charcaters, especially the lead duo who turn YOU NEVER CAN TELL into a classy reading experience. As usual Ms. Eagle demonstrates with this novel that you can tell why books like THE NIGHT REMEMBERS and THE LAST TRUE COWBOY are so popular with readers.

I absolutely LOVE Mrs. Eagles books! I have never found another author that captures a readers attention like Kathleen Eagle!
Her characters are always people that I wish I could meet in person. It's like she introduces you to friends of hers and they take you on a wonderful journey. I always cry at the end of the journey because it IS THE END.
Mrs. Eagle never ceases to amaze me with her creativity for storylines. Not only am I drawn to the drama but also the humor that makes my kids look at me funny because I laugh out loud when reading one of her books.
Most importantly, Mrs. Eagle always incorporates Indian issues into her stories that many people would never know about. In YOU NEVER CAN TELL, Mrs. Eagle covers a wide variety of issues that Indian people are trying to gain public attention to. In her own way, Mrs. Eagle is doing activist work just like Kola and Heather!
I also like the fact that all of Mrs. Eagle's heroines are strong and well-educated women!!!! And the fact that she doesn't put too much emphasis on physical appearences or sexual situations.
Mrs. Eagle is a TRUE storyteller!!! I highly recommend ANY and EVERY book by Kathleen Eagle!!!
