A scenic, suspenseful debut novel turns out to be one of the best of the season. . . . The nonstop action in Under Tower Peak is well-paced, the plot twists surprising (even shocking) and the occasional humor welcome. In the end, it's that right-stuff quality known as true grit that may save Tommy Smith's bacon—and that elevates this fine first novel into a must-read book.” (Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal)
“A superior blend of thriller and contemporary western, full of gun lore and with a fine appreciation of the Sierra Nevada wilderness.” (John Mort, Booklist)
“Paul writes with spare, clean, hard-driving prose that skates along morality's knife-edge—writing reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy and James Lee Burke—all the while layered with lush, keenly observed descriptions of the natural world and man’s place in it.” (Kirkus Reviews)
“Under Tower Peak is a great western thriller. Bart Paul knows how to keep things interesting and his attention to detail is pitch perfect--from how to pack a horse to the relationship between two modern-day cowboys. In Tommy Smith, he has created a western hero that is part John Wayne and part James Bond. Under Tower Peak is a hard book to put down.” (Dan O’Brien, author of Stolen Horses and Buffalo for the Broken Heart)
“Bart Paul's UNDER TOWER PEAK is a superb contemporary western thriller. Paul's Tommy Smith is right up there with James Lee Burke's Dave Robichaux. He's a decent, sympathetic man struggling with inner demons and with a mystery that threatens to destroy him and his community. Bart Paul knows his High Sierra country inside out. UNDER TOWER PEAK is a beautifully-written, searingly honest literary thriller by a first-rate storyteller and outdoorsman.” (Howard Frank Mosher)
“Under Tower Peak has everything I look for in a thriller–big characters, big action, sharp dialogue, and the magic of place. Bart Paul brings the California mountains to life through Iraqi war sniper Tommy Smith, a tough soul who would like to forget that war and get on with his life in the great outdoors. Circumstances conspire against heroes, though, as they often do in thrillers and in life. This book is engaging as a firefight and haunting as a campfire story.” (T. Jefferson Parker, author of The Famous and the Dead and The Jaguar)

I'd give this book 3 1/2 if I could, because four stars seems too high, but three too low, and I appreciate people self publishing, so four it is. ;-)
