  “…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. Baer 6 is packed with more action, wit, and destruction than any book in the series so far. It’s more brutal, more funny, more heartbreaking, and more enlightening. I hope you find as much enjoyment in the reading as I did in the writing. — Clayton

  1. Amazon Customer

    Outstanding series that wraps you inside the characters. Books that get read in a single sitting because you can’t put them down.

  2. Carole J

    Enjoyed the first six books in the Baer Creighton series so much i read them these past 2 weeks. Disappointed book seven isn’t available til Sept 2021.Killing the bad guys isn’t always left up to law enforcement.

  3. Amazon Customer

    I have read all his books, got hooked on his writing style on the first book.

  4. Roger

    Bear Creighton is both good and evil, good read.

  5. Robert D. Krystosek

    I don’t know why but I can’t get enough of this series. Keep ‘em coming Mr. L! Fantastic book and series.

  6. Anita Fuentes

    It was nice to be with Baer again….I missed his unique way of talking ! I love his relationship with ” odoriferous Joseph ” and I really love stinky Joe ! Clayton I am afraid your books don’t come fast enough for me ….I have read them all !! What comes next…Shirley. ? Keep me posted !!

  7. Joyce Atlee

    The journey continues and the body count rises as Baer Creighton’s saga goes on. Ethereal philophy exposes him to a new way of looking at things, but he has a mission.

  8. Kindle Customer

    Thought provoking ……. Wish I had a little of your talent to emphasize that this series is so much more than you expect……. Especially this book!! Would like to talk to Chicago Mags!Wish we didn’t have to wait so long for The Destroyer.

  9. Lake Loon

    Love the main story line, but about half way through there was so much psychobabble is was almost unreadable and the last half was hard to understand. Seem like Clayton Lindemuth, the author, tried to make Baer sound like a country mountain hillbilly so hard that it was hard to unnderstand. All his other books had that psychology stuff off and on but you could just skim over it. This book was loaded with it. Guess Clayton took Phych 101 and wanted to show us all what he learned.

  10. Kindle Customer

    Another killer book with Baer Creighton, the best character I’ve come across in years. Since I read my first Baer book I haven’t wanted to stop. They move fast and may keep you up all night. Even if you finish you may find yourself going back to read a chapter or two or four just to savor it a little slower. Chew on it a while. If you haven’t tried Baer yet, you’re missing out.

  11. carol

    Loved the whole series. Once I read the first book I was hooked! Can’t wait for the 7th book.

    For the avid reader of Clayton Lindemuth, The Men I Sent Forward is his finest work. It is the culmination of his previous Baer Creighton volumes, beginning with My Brother’s Destroyer, and progressing through The Mundane Work of Vengeance, Pretty Like An Ugly Girl, The Outlaw Stinky Joe, and Blunt Force Kindness.Baer Creighton is a North Carolina mountain man who kept to himself and his distillation until his dog Fred is stolen by dog fighters, and then brutally killed. Creighton then takes matters into his own hands, serving out copious amounts of mountain justice to all the men involved, and anyone who gets in his way.Baer possesses a few extraodinary abilities. As a result of being electrocuted by his brother in his youth, Baer is able to pick up on the electricity deceivers give off, as well as detecting liars by the red in their eyes.He also talks to his dog – starting with Fred and continuing with Stinky Joe, a dog he rescues from the dog fighters after taking care of business. And they talk back, though only Baer can hear them in his head.Baer Creighton becomes a wanted man, fleeing local law enforcement and the FBI as he and Stinky Joe travel cross-country, meeting up with a few good folks and more bad ones than he can count along the way . . . and taking care of the latter in true Baer fashion.In The Men I Sent Forward, we find many of the characters from Lindemuth’s previous novels woven into the story line. Tatiana and Corazon, rescued from human traffickers in Pretty Like An Ugly Girl, and Nat Cinder, who we first met in the novel Tread. We also delve deeper into Mags, a physics professor Baer first encountered in Blunt Force Kindness, who felt an unlikely connection to the mountain man. The discussion that follows – the professor who quotes Nietzsche, and the moonshiner trying to translate lofty philosophy on good versus evil into something that fits into his own sense of justice – is brilliant. Insightful, and laugh-out-loud funny.Though I hesitate to employ the overused book review clichés, 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.

    I’m hoping that this is a transitional book, that sets the stage for future books in the series, but with less mumbo jumbo about the the metaphysical!

  14. M.Ravenswoode

    The only thing I disliked about this book was that it came to an end! I need MORE! Please hurry with the next Baer Creighton book!!! Now I have to catch up on the things I didn’t get done whilst binge reading this book. I literally could not put it down! Thank you for being an incredible author Mr.Linda ugh.

  15. Julie R Hunter

    Please keep Baer around, he is like an Uncle I once knew. Missed beyond belief. I am also looking for more insight on life in the other. I can accept your belief more than any religion with their controlling rules.

  16. Cindy Raney

    Keep you on the edge of your seat. Can’t read fast enough. Only have one more book left in the series
