  1. Amazon Customer

    I love this series so much, can’t wait for the next. It’s a very gritty story but very satisfying. Couldn’t put it down.

  2. Mark carpenter

    I’ve always been a reader but a long time since any held my attention like this series. It seems we all have a part of Baer inside us. Right or wrong we’re all human and anyone that’s owned a dog (or been owned by one) knows that they do talk to you. Most times they’re the smart ones. Look forward to the rest.

  3. Kindle Customer

    Well damn it, he do it agin !? Sucked me rite in, had to read it right thru. A peace lovin, sensitive Baer. Who coulda knowed.

  4. Mona Triplett

    Definitely a page turner sat up all night reading to done on all these books.

  5. jan h

    I’ve read all so far and they hold my attention just because they are different! Waiting on the next adventure of Baer!

  6. Deborah Porter

    I can’t wait for the next book. I love Baer Creighton

  7. What???

    Once I started I just can’t get enough Baer Creighton. See for yourself….

  8. veronica

    I’m so addicted to this series of books. Can’t wait till September for the next. I love Baer and his family.

  9. Kindle Customer

    If you’re looking for a compellingly deep and resonant adventure that’ll leave you wanting more, Baer won’t disappoint.He may surprise you. He may shock you. But, he wont leave you hanging, and he will definitely make you think.

  10. sherry daniels

    i love this book and have enjoyed whole series so far. and have gotten other books by same author. hope the baer creighton series goes for a while love it!

  11. Steelyeyes

    Loved the story line, the characters come to life in the narrative. Descriptions are very colorful. What’s not to like?

  12. Nancy Luce

    Unlike the other baer novels this one kept going back and forward. Less action and words that were taking up space.

  13. Kindle Customer

    Insightful and entertaining at the same time. I disagree with having to say more in other to post a review.

  14. Linda

    I’m on book #4 of the Baer Creighton series. I just can’t put them down. What I’m wondering is, will #6 only be available on Kindle? Does anyone know? I don’t care for that format, but if it is available in paperback, I would like to pre-order.

  15. Amazon Customer

    Bear is the ultimate anti-hero. He has his own, experience based, morality. And his own sense of justice that evolves through his stories. I’m all in.

  16. Kindle Customer

    Another outstanding piece of super high quality entertainment from Clayton Lindemuth!!! I’m so glad to be a part of this group of readers that have found the ultimate thrill ride and feeling the literary G-Force Noir!!!

  17. Amazon Customer

    I’m probably biased because I love all his works! But this one did not disappoint as usual!

  18. Leslie

    I can’t wait for the next book. I’m hooked, one of the best writers! Highly recommend him!


    Quickly shipped and no damage

  20. worried Mary.

    I guess I was disappointed in how it ended. I had expected more from Baer.I don’t know it just did not flow like his other books about Baer. And having him end up as it did with the girls.

  21. Kindle Customer

    I read the first four books by Clayton Lindemuth and found the character of Baer Creighton out of the ordinary and attention grabbing. For some reason I struggled with this fifth edition of Blunt Force Kindness. I enjoyed it but the flashbacks in time just threw me off on this book. It seemed I wanted to get on with the story and not go back and forth. I do encourage others to read it though.

  22. Jane Mulrenan

    So, after having read 5 books in the Baer Creighton series, I’ve finally come up for air to check on my family. These books are so entertaining and exciting, waiting for the next “bad guy” to get what he deserves. I love the characters so much — Baer, of course, but all the others, as well, are so well formed that it’s like watching a fast-moving movie, but better. I have to admit to being a little distracted by wondering how someone could go so long without washing his hands or showering, but I love, love this books and can hardly wait for more. Thank you, Clayton, for hours and hours of pleasurable reading.

  23. Ellen Harper

    I. LOVE. These. Books! I’m pretty sure that I’ve read everything that Clayton Lindemuth has written. And the next one can’t come soon enough! If you’re ready to have your timbers shivered, this is a good place to start. They’re dark and gritty, and the onions are strong enough to make the burps interesting….Or something like that.
