No way out for the Outlaw Stinky Joe



With Baer Creighton hidden inside a mountain, stinky Joe survives the wild Flagstaff winter alone.

But with first melt, he succumbs to warm broth and sleeping pills placed at the doorstep of a scheming prostitute at the vortex of a politician looking for an issue, a money launderer wielding leverage, and his 83 year-old meth dealing target. Stinky Joe learned as a pup: don’t ever bite a man. He’ll beat you near death.

But cornered in a bath tub by a pothead with a gun, Joe goes outlaw.

Within hours the best and worst of Flagstaff are mobile. Sheriff’s deputies, the meth dealer and his tracking dog, news crews, and Baer Creighton – with the FBI after him, seeking vengeance for yet another agent down. Joe has survived the wild, but civilized man is a different kind of devil. Wounded, hunted, and holed up, there’s no way out for the Outlaw Stinky Joe.

  1. Leslie Pollard

    Adults only. Can’t read these slowly! I think if you love a good western, you will definitely enjoy this Author!

  2. Maximumbob

    First, this story is one of four. It can be read as a stand-alone, but why deprive yourself?Second, the story is told, partly from the perspective of Stinky Joe, who is of the pit-bull clan.Third, it’s raw and not the sort of bedtime story you’d tell your young ‘un.All that said, this is the best of the four. Lindemuth does something very few authors seem to be capable of. He makes you stop and ponder what you just read.There’s a character named Lester. He’s an elderly crime boss. He takes his equally elderly German Shepherd on a quest for Stinky Joe through the forest, because… well that would be telling. In any event, his musings on his life as he pursues the trail are amazing.And shirley, the 400 lb hooker, who is AKA the Che Guevara of the trailer park.In a good way.Joe R. Lansdale, who lives just 40 miles from me, has got some serious competition. I’d say Lindemuth is ahead, and getting better. His characters at least redeem themselves.Very satisfying read.

  3. Joan Walthall Thomas

    As I’ve said before seems Baer is on a mission. May seem as if he is the outlaw but compared to the others he has killed he’s a saint. Love this series. Thank you Mr. Lindemuth.

  4. Kindle Customer

    Really enjoyed “StinkyJoe “. This series keeps evolving and getting deeper. Now Baer’s dog is a wanted killer and he enlists the support of an incredible cast of characters including a politician and a hooker. I really enjoy the twists and turns of this series particularly the disrespect for dishonest and unhelpful authority. And Baer’s moral compass and now his dog make sure the right ones end up dead.

  5. old dog59

    I enjoyed this whole series. I read Stinky Joe in 1 day as I couldn’t put it down.

  6. Kindle Customer

    Great story told like my Grand Dad would’ve told it. One of the best reads I have read in a long time

  7. Cindy

    Great,fun saga

  8. Kindle Customer

    amazing writing… you can hear each characters voice in the language they speak and think. an interesting tale of the meaning of morality

  9. D. Marsh

    I had no idea what I was getting into when I opened my first Baer Creighton book. Now I’ve just finished my 4th. The characters are colorful and true, the dialect seems authentic, and the stories are terrific. I’ve never cheered so much for a renegade and his outlaw dog, but I absolutely love these guys.

  10. Marilyn Rollins

    Just finished The Outlaw Stinky Joe. The whole series is good. It could be disturbing at times, but also raises awareness of the things that are actually happening in our time. Joe has a fierce appetite for life and shows us that we must fight with all we have, to overcome adversities.

  11. Belva Doyle

    I wish I knew what happened to Stinky Joe, I have resorted to my own imagination as to what happened…lol…

  12. Kindle Customer

    This was the fourth book in the Baer Creighton series. I read all four in a matter of days. I couldn’t put them down. Excellent writing, interesting characters.

  13. Rand wischmann

    Very good series, but by this 4th book, it started to get old

  14. PKN

    Loved this book. It had a great title and the story lived up to it! This novel was well written and that at the heart strings.If you’ve been following Baer and Stinky Joe you won’t find a better trip than this one!Buy it, rent it, borrow it, but don’t miss it! I really loved it and of all so far, this will be the one I will read again.The characters are well fleshed out and pretty much believable. The plot is out there but well within the the sphere of Baer, his family, his growing number of friends and , or course, sweet Stinky Joe!

  15. Tierney Clark

    As always, I’m was completely thrilled with this book. You are with the characters and feel it all. Such an excellent author!

  16. Kindle Customer

    One of the best authors to come along in my lifetime

    A dog who has lost his trust in man.

  18. norjie

    I like all of Clayton Lindemuth books and I probably like this one the best. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because it is so intense that after reading one of his books, I have to rest a while before starting another. I cannot live in that world for very long. It is far from a comfortable place for me. However, the writing is so good it just pulls you along through the story until you can’t lay it down. I have never read any author like this.

  19. SugarCookie

    I did write an honest review but found out Amazon is so LEFT they had their head where the sun doesn’t shine. I loved this book specifically from the 5 and am looking forward to number 6. There was nothing wrong with my review but Amazon must be in the same world as Facebook in freedom of speech. If they do it again they can have their account.

  20. Mark L

    Reading this book made me want some hooch

  21. veronica

    Love theses books. Comes in a series I can’t put them down have read 4 already. Excellent read.

  22. Hoyt

    This author paints a picture with words. The words are in three appropriate vernacular. The characters are real with well depicted personalities.

  23. Amazon Customer

    Loved the way it was written but could hardly stand the abuse Stinky Joe had to endure.

  24. Sbr2th

    Master Storyteller, riveting.

  25. Mary Dobbs

    And the mystery continues. It’s been a good journey following Braer. Looking forward to seeing what happens next. A great read.

  26. Edward K. Chance

    Couldn’t put the book down.Can’t wait for the next one.Baer and his dogs are my outlaw heroes forever.

  27. William R. Reynolds



    If I had read this book before Shirley F’ N Lyle I’d have given that five stars also. I didn’t understand the main characters in that book as well as I do now. I also didn’t appreciate the author’s style of writing where he adjusts the character’s speech to match their style and intellect.When reading the Shirley book I didn’t realize it was part of a series and that it’s characters had been introduced in earlier books. I often make the following suggestion to author’s of series books. To improve your reader’s enjoyment of your books, and to increase the likelihood of them buying your earlier books, it would be very helpful to include a summary of key events from prior books as well as a Who’s Who of the main characters.While these books can be read and enjoyed on their own, the enjoyment is vastly improved by starting at the beginning. Also, for us loyal readers who want to follow-up with the subsequent books in a series but read many books in between the subsequent releases, these summaries will help us get back up to speed quicker. As recommended, I’m going to get all the earlier books in this series and start from the beginning…you should also.Review by THE HOLEY ONE

    I can’t believe I’ve burned through four volumes of the Baer Creighton series already. These stories have grabbed my attention and kept it from start to finish. The author’s imagination is a marvelous thing. The twists and technology are great, and wonderfully believable. You’ll get a great deal of dark satisfaction from some of the plot quirks and turns. Baer Creighton is nothing like any hero I’ve run across before, if he can really be called a hero. And I suppose he must be, in his own way, because he stays true to his ideals. His loyalty never wavers, well, maybe a little, but he is what he is. Flawed, reckless, hard drinking, he gets through life as best he knows how; usually trailing dead bodies behind him. As the song said, “…jus a good ol boy, never meanin no harm, beats all you never saw, been in trouble with the law, since the day he was born.”Go get em, Baer!
