MEDIA REVIEWS
"A gripping plot, replete with memorable surrounds and spiky characters, makes this second in the series (after Ice Hunter) an excellent choice for most collections. A good pick also for readers who enjoy outdoor mysteries by such authors as Nevada Barr or Dana Stabenow."--" Library Journal"
"This second Woods Cop procedural is well written, suspenseful, and bleakly humorous while moving as quickly as a wolf cutting through winter woods. In addition to strong characters and a compelling romance, Heywood provides vivid, detailed descriptions of the wilderness and the various procedures and techniques of conservation officers and poachers. The tricky, evasive behavior of federal officials recalls the atmosphere of The X-Files, while the police procedure and banter evoke K.C. Constantines Mario Balzic series. Highly recommended."" Booklist"
" ""This is the second in sometimes North Woods Call cartoonist Joe Heywood's series of mystery novels on Upper Peninsula conservation officer Grady Service. And like the first, Ice Hunter, it is a sizzler. (Be warned: Very adult, too.). While the plot is the work of a fascinating imagination, the meat of the story and is how Service puts together his case in the real world. Heywood knows, and appreciates, what it takes to be a top dog woods cop. His grasp of nature and strong conservation values come across vividly. If you're into intriguing mysteries, darn good police work and the outdoors, you don't want to miss this one."--"The North Woods Call"
"An even more ambitious plot than Gradys exciting debut in Ice Hunter. In this fine follow-up, Heywood establishes himself in the company of the best outdoor mystery writers such as TonyHillerman and Dana Stabenow. Traveling the road less taken may have not fattened Heywoods pocketbook in the way the easy path could havebut his readers certainly are enriched by his choices."--"The (Flint, MI) Journal"
" "
"While the book mentions nearly every crossroad in the Upper Peninsula, it is really a spellbinder that is likely to find a good national audienceat least wherever game wardens are recognized as authorities and readers appreciate a good mystery with fast paced action."--
"Lake Superior magazine"
"Heywood's idiosyncratic characters and tight plots make this a winning series."--"The Grand Rapids Press"
"Heywood obviously intends to continue the series. That's good news. Heywood has a lot of talent."--"Oakland Press"
"Blue Wolf in Green Fire has enough plot threads for two or three books, but author Heywood handles them with aplomb, bringing them all together in an exciting and surprising climax that ties up every loose end in a satisfying manner. This is Heywood's second Woods Cop mystery, and the series looks as if it might have legs. The author creates a great supporting cast for Service, including several tough, smart and independent female officers with enough character to have their own books. The story abounds in colorful characters and insightful descriptions of the special culture of those who live in the North Woods." --"Grand Rapids Press"

Praise for "Ice Hunter: "
"The intensity with which Department of Natural Resources Conservation Officer Grady Service pursues his job makes this first entry in Heywood's new series a standout."
--"Publishers Weekly "

"Compelling ideas and taut suspense distinguish the second in Heywood's series...it's a tense and harrowing narrative most of the way, spoiled only occasionally by the author's tendency to lecture and a predilection for eyebrow-raising names...Heywood is best on topical details, if at a price - an overlay of ecological and sociological detail threatens to overwhelm the mystery. No matter. When the action takes over, Heywood is incomparable. One hopes Heywood has a long writing career ahead of him."--"Publishers Weekly "
