The Great Leader by Jim Harrison.. A faux mystery it may be, but this genre-mixer will surprise and delight you with suspense and belly laughs. Harrison is a true American original, and one of the most rewarding storytellers out there.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"A mountain, a mess and an agonized moralist, Detective Sunderson makes this mock-epic one of the most memorable tales of contemporary master Harrison…Wounds-and-all portrait of a lion in winter, beleaguered but still battling."

Kirkus Reviews

"Mays was a magic act, but the kind that left you with the feeling that the miraculous stuff surprised him too. And that’s where Harrison fits in, 30-odd books down the road—his own shelf in the library—and you can still feel the excitement every time he pulls something new out of his ear. Which pretty much happens on every page he writes."
