Editorial Reviews


The language of the story is poetic and staccato, like memory... an overall excellent story. Highly recommended.

All of the plotlines feed in and out of the narrative, keeping the reader rushing to the end, much like trying a controlled run to the bottom of a steep hill. Solomon Bull is an interesting mix of adventure story, government conspiracy, Native American culture, and Libertarian philosophy. It's politically incorrect, unexpectedly humorous, and thoughtful all at the same time. The dialog mostly flows smoothly, the character development is handled exceptionally well, and even with the competing plotlines, still stays coherent to the end. Clayton Lindemuth will fit in for fans of Greg Rucka's Atticus Kodiak or Andrew Vachss's Burke stories. Solomon Bull is an entertaining political conspiracy novel, with an engaging protagonist that fights the limitations imposed on him by both others and his personal demons he's determined to overcome.

ForeWord Reviews 
Solomon Bull is a smart and darkly funny political thriller that takes institutional depravity to task... Solomon--sharp-tongued,young, and fit, with a penchant for wry vulgarities and just a hint of a philosopher's soul--is training for the Desert Dog, a privately sponsored race rumored to exist for the recruitment of mercenaries...The text is electric with evocative descriptions--the pull of a sticky floor on shoes; the sizzling heat of a desert path... A pinch of cultural references, a smattering of literary nods, and just a dash of nose-thumbing at Godwin's Law help to round out brash, often good-humored, and libertarian-flavored passages...Beneath this edgy writing lies a barbed and complex plot, involving shadow governments, abusive behaviors, and frightening global conspiracies, that snags attention and propels the story forward... the work remains involving throughout, through to an end that is as much satisfying as it is a new beginning.

★★★★★ 5 stars for Solomon Bull
A book that manages to have multiple WTF plot twists gets points for being surprising.... "Solomon Bull" presents several conspiracies centering on the main character and the personal struggle for identity of the same. I'd summarize it as James Bond meets the Southwest and militia conspiracy theories to create an inventive novel. I give the book five stars on complexity and novelty. ---Tamara Wilhite,

It's a twisted countdown to a brutish desert Arizona race in Clayton Lindemuth's newest Rebel Noir novel... The author's straightforward approach to storytelling draws readers in from the get-go as he nimbly weaves a good-versus-evil theme. Including a little bit of everything one would want in a political thriller... It should appeal to a broad audience and gain many new followers for Lindemuth's fine work. 

blueink REVIEW 
A virile tale about a tough-as-nails Blackfoot Indian... a roaming badass... a well-crafted, solid thriller with tense fight scenes and Tarantino-esque banter entertaining read.

Lindemuth's refusal to apologize for machismo is bound to upset the politically correct crowd, as is his portrayal of a politician who wallows in corruption and has a racist past involving Indians... With SOLOMON BULL, author Clayton Lindemuth has created a new genre--Indian noir, applying the theme of mystery writers in which the haunted protagonist uncovers a much bigger crime while on a quest to solve another. Lindemuth imbues this tale with secrets and lies, and a past that will not go away.
