Publication Order of Baer Creighton Books

My Brother's Destroyer

Lindemuth, Clayton 2013

★★★★★ "In short, I was left completely in awe." Seattle Book Review ★★★★★ "If you enjoy stories of betrayal and vengeance with just a touch of the unreal, My Brother's Destroyer is a fantastic read, and I highly recommend it for your next book.

" Manhattan Book Review The world of Gleason is so immersive and Baer's vendetta so oddly compelling... fans of noir tales set in rural America will particularly welcome this addition to the genre. ~~Kirkus Reviews A MOONSHINER WITH A SURREAL GIFT, A COUNTRY STRONGMAN AND A TALKING DOG Ever since his brother tried to murder him as a boy, Baer Creighton feels an electric tingle when people lie to him — and their eyes glow red.

He lives in the woods next to his house, tinges his moonshines with any fruit but peach, and limits contact to buyers, his niece Mae, and her three kids. It’s a good life, sharing humor and philosophy with Fred, a back-sassin pit bull getting on in years.

Until Fred goes missing, then arrives dumped in a ditch, victim of a local dog fighting ring. Armed with moxie and a moonshiner's know-how, Baer hunts the dog thief. Was it Cory Smylie, pothead son of the Gleason police chief — who resents Baer for forcing him to treat Mae right?Or Baer’s brother Larry? The real feud started not with the prank electrocution, but when Baer stole Ruth and Larry stole her back.

..Maybe it was Joe Stipe, or one of those lugnuts he keeps at his side like a private Secret Service? Stipe runs the dogfights, and a couple years ago tried to muscle Baer out of his stillin operation. Driven by a visceral need for justice, Baer tips his hand and begins a war of attrition against a cabal steeped in blood sport and thirsty for violence.

With his niece in danger, the ex-love of his life Ruth missing — either dead or plotting against him — and all the town's finest trying to burn him down or shoot him on sight, Baer vows to bring a reckoning to every man present at the fight ring.

When you discover who stole Fred, you’ll know you’ve found a new master of the dark surreal. And when you see what Baer does to him… Them… You haven’t read a novel like this. I promise. Written as a standalone Fans demanded a series.

.. READY TO MEET BAER? ★★★★★ I grew up in the mountains of Appalachia and can attest not only to the reality of the language, but also to the reality to what could have been a true depiction of actual events... Jack Freeman ★★★★★ In Baer Creighton, the author has created a flawed antihero we simply can not look away from.

From his down-home, backwoods, and often hilarious thoughts and dialogue, to his antisocial habits, to his survival instincts and brutally efficient solutions, we become enamored with Baer and can't wait to see how he handles his next predicament. Dustin Sharp

"...The Men I Sent Forward is Lindemuth's tour de force. Absolutely his best work thus far, leaving the reader eager to discover where Baer #7, Destroyer, will take us." -- Graymalkin Picking up the story with Baer on the road to North Carolina and Tat and Corazon in the motel with the hot tub, disaster is moments away.

One at a Time, Boys

Lindemuth, Clayton 2019

Shirley F'N Lyle: ONE AT A TIME, BOYSLester Toungate has a six-foot problem named Shirley Lyle. The only way he can return to his drug lord duties with a clear mind: kill her—and Ulyana the Ukrainian stripper. Lester knows she didn’t pick up a rock at the trailer fire.

F.B.I. special agent Joe Smith stands to lose his reputation as a goody two shoes, his career in the agency, and his freedom, if his superiors ever learn about his role in the sex-torture death of El Jay Toungate. Joe Smith doesn’t merely have a Shirley Lyle problem.

He has a Shirley and Ulyana problem, and he’s been recalled to Phoenix. The solution? Murder both women. Now. Russian mob boss Vanko Demyan, convinced Shirley, Ulyana, and Lester are in cahoots against him, assigns his best assassin a simple task: Execute all three, and do it in the daylight.

Make a splash. Three men... three murder missions... converge on a house in the woods. Newly freed from the root cellar, Ulyana wants to spend her days meditating in sunshine and doing yoga. Shirley wants a salad and a tall glass of rum—but not this day.

Today is for bullets, and they fly in Chapter One. “I know you’re excited,” Shirley says, adjusting her cape. “C’mon.

Cold Quiet Country

Lindemuth, Clayton 2012

Publishers Weekly Starred Review:Lindemuth's impressive debut, set in the winter of 1971, is a go-for-the-jugular country noir. Josephus Bittersmith, 72, is the longtime patriarchal sheriff of a remote town in Wyoming that bears his grandfather's name.

Burt Haudesert is a lecherous militiaman and rancher who routinely raped his teenage daughter, Gwen. But Burt's been found dead with a pitchfork through the neck, and Bittersmith, a philanderer and brutish lout, has been called in on his final day in office and on the eve of a blizzard to track down whoever's responsible.

Gwen is missing, and suspicion soon falls on Burt's hired farmhand, an orphan named Gail G'Wain who had eyes for Gwen and is also AWOL. Holed up in a farmhouse with Gwen's best friend, Liz Sunday, another victim of rape, the honorable Gail prepares for the assault of vengeful Wyoming militiamen and corrupt local deputies.

Lindemuth carefully weaves characters' backstories into this thrilling narrative, and his visceral prose and unsparing tone are wonderfully reminiscent of such modern rural noir masters as Tom Franklin and Donald Ray Pollock. Agent: Cameron McClure, Donald Maass Literary.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This writer has been my fave for the last year. His rural noir is the best out there. Here, he switches gears a bit, upping the pace and character count to mix a bit of Elmore Leonard into his trademark gritty noir. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This the best of Lindemuth's books that I have read.

This is dark, country noir with realistic characters and plot development.

Solomon Bull

Lindemuth, Clayton 2017

"A virile tale about a tough-as-nails Blackfoot Indian... a roaming badass... a well-crafted, solid thriller." blueink REVIEW SOLOMON BULL is the son of a rebel who died in the seventies fighting for the American Indian Movement. He trains for an Arizona race called Desert Dog, designed to shred a man, while using monkeywrench tactics to unseat a corrupt senator.

Pursued by a smoking hot agent from the Treasury's Terrorism and Financial Intelligence office, a doe-like prostitute with burn marks on her back and a sick story about a corrupt senator, and by Cal Barrett--Desert Dog organizer and brain behind Operation Guillotine, set to decapitate the US Government--Solomon is about to learn if he is a mere man, or heir to his father's revolution.

Manhattan Review gives SOLOMON BULL five stars and says, "All of the plot-lines 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." Click "Buy Now" and leave a note.

You're going to run with a rowdy bunch.... ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Praise for Solomon Bull ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★★★★ SEATTLE BOOK REVIEW The language of the story is poetic and staccato, like memory... an overall excellent story. Highly recommended.

★★★★★MANHATTAN BOOK REVIEWIt's politically incorrect, unexpectedly humorous, and thoughtful all at the same time. ★Praise for Clayton Lindemuth★ Clayton Lindemuth's works have been smashingly reviewed by Publishers Weekly (starred review and best of the week), Indie Next List, Kirkus, BlueInk Review, Foreword Reviews, Seattle Book Review, Manhattan Book Review, Indie Reader, Reader Views, Spinetingler Magazine, Hardboiled Wonderland, various independent best of the year mentions, (Spinetingler and DoSomeDamage, among others).

★★★★1/2" "One of those books that’s going to stick with me for a while." ~~Manhattan Book Review★★★★★": "A story about finding yourself, facing your inner demons, forgiving, dealing with loss, and despite all that, still moving forward.

" ~~Seattle Book Review★★★★★ "Wrenching... Relentless... Cathartic... Enlightening..." Readers Like You Say? ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I think this is Clayton’s best book, lots of stories within stories, but the narrative of the pain of running long distances is excellent.

I used to run 10ks and the mental strain is worse than the physical strain. Solomon Bull is a close second to this for Clayton’s best. Great job… ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I was instantly immersed in this very different C.L. story. There was enough drama, (murder, abuse, betrayal, and even sadly suicide) to keep me turning the pages, but also a very personal and poignant layer of goodness and redemption that profoundly affected me.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ As always Clayton’ stories are compelling. I make myself take breaks near the end just to prolong the intense suspense. His writing is the kind that makes me stop and reread sections because they are so profound.
