Review:

"Alexie has an angry wit and offhand charm; his prose pops and dazzles and stares you steadily in the eye."

"Part thriller, part magical realism, and part social commentary, Indian Killer... lingers long past the final page."

"Vigorous prose . . . haunted, surprising characters . . . flashes of sardonic wit . . . [Indian Killer is] a meditative exploration of the sources of human identity."
"A terrific second novel by the talented Native American author whose highly praised fiction has already moved him onto the short list of the country's best young writers. It's a rich, panoramic portrayal of contemporary Seattle that uses the form of the mystery to tell some uncomfortable home truths about Indian-white relations, and indeed racism in all its forms . . . [an] exciting story with a host of keenly observed and rigorously analyzed characters. . . . Alexie succeeds brilliantly at suggesting the time-bomb-ticking character of John Smith's ravaged psyche, and the novel rips along at a breathless pace. . . . Both a splendidly constructed thriller--and a haunting, challenging articulation of the plight and the pride of contemporary Native Americans." --"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)
"Vigorous prose . . . haunted, surprising characters . . . flashes of sardonic wit . . . [ Indian Killer is] a meditative exploration of the sources of human identity." --Richard E. Nicholls, "The New York Times Book Review"
"Hard-edged and urban, distinctly individual. . . . The characters in Mr. Alexie's work are not the usual kind of Indians. . . . They are not tragic victims or noble savages . . . they listen to Jimi Hendrix and Hank Williams; they dream of being basketball stars. . . . And unlike most Indians in fiction, they are sometimes funny." --"New York Times"
"A slyly subversive potboiler . . . a multilayered work . . . highlights the tenuous thread of civility that exists between white and American-Indian cultures." --"Los Angeles Times"
"Decries America's prejudices while telling a rip-roaring good tale." --"People"
"A brilliant job. . . . This book will leave your head whirling. . . . A reminder that racial tensions are alive and well." --"San Antonio Express-News"
"Not since Richard Wright's Native Son has a novel by a minority writer so devastatingly indicted an entire society and laid bare with merciless candor the racial hatred festering at the center of it." --"Kansas City Star"
"Part thriller, part magical realism, and part social commentary, Indian Killer . . . lingers long past the final page." --"Seattle Weekly"
"Stunningly well-written . . . riveting." --"Rocky Mountain News"
"Alexie has angry wit and offhand charm. . . . Best of all, the fireworks and authority are in the service of an ambitious and difficult theme: racial hatred." --"Boston Sunday Globe"
"Sherman Alexie has found his metier in writing novels that open the way for understanding history's destructive spells." --"Philadelphia Inquirer"
"A racially charged literary thriller." --"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
"Scorching . . . brilliantly detailed." --"Boulder Planet"
"Alexie mesmerizes. . . . A haunting, painfully vivid portrait . . . frighteningly real." --"Hartford Courant"
"A passionate, beautifully constructed and compelling novel by an extremely gifted writer." --Salon Previews, "Border Books"
