"Hardboiled, but hot as a door knob after a nuclear blast. Tim Bryant's work is blessed not only with originality, but with a kind of madness that makes it one of a kind and as special and surprising as a one eyed, three hundred pound toad with a picnic basket. I love this guy's stuff. Seems to me, his success is assured." -- Joe R. Lansdale. Part TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and ...more

Books that I love all have one thing in common: a distinctive voice. Dutch Curridge arrested me from the first page and wouldn't let my eyes move away. I read it in one day. The next day I started reading it all over again. Author Tim Bryant has voice to burn--his words sashay along with more expressive verve and personality than Marilyn Monroe's derriere. I mention Marilyn because she was at the height of her career in 1953, the time period of DUTCH CURRIDGE. The title is a play on "Dutch Coura ...more
This isn't my usual sort of book, but I found it engrossing, even haunting. Bryant did a great job and the flow of the book is perfect.
The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that it isn't my usual sort of read. It really deserves five stars on its own merit.

Loved it from beginning to end. Great story and he nailed the time period perfectly. Wonderful dialog and great characters. Highly recommended.

My full review is on But I will tell you I was amazed and pleased. This is a marvelous tale harkening back to Chandler and Cain.

I really enjoyed Dutch Curridge. The pacing was precise and the voices of each character were perfect. The feel of old Fort Worth from our grandparen'ts age seeped into my subconcious as I turned the pages and I felt as if I was discovering the city all over again. Some of the characters were so true and felt so real! I wanted to sit with Miz Vita for a glass of sweet tea and shoot some pool with Slant.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The vivid imagery transported me to 1950's, racially divided Fort Worth. The lead character Dutch is described as an ex-cop who is too bad to be a good cop but way too good to be a 'bad cop.' The book takes you through several dark twists and turns, but also has a underlying vein of humor. Well done.
Main character was entertaining. Story line kept a good pace. The underworld and attitude of old Fort Worth depicted quite well. Superb conclusion. Overall great read.
