"I see you have finally come out of the archaeological closet to write Ďtrue fictioní! Good for you." - Dr. Michael Ames, Professor of Anthropology, Past Director, Museum of Anthropology, UBC, Vancouver, BC.

"Iím not a mystery fan, but I loved this story. I especially enjoyed the place names and the geography of the Fraser River and how things were tied in with the people. The historical accuracy; the relationships of the people and who they represent tells so much about First Nations." - Bruce Kiloh, Teacher, Langley, BC

"... Anthropological writing can be boring. However, his first novel, Devilís Run, is a page-turning murder mystery starring the eastern Fraser Valley as a backdrop." - Jennifer Feinberg, Chilliwack Progress, May 23, 2000

"Itís wonderful. I really loved it. I enjoyed the story, but it was the history and all the sites that really made the story. . . . and Iím reading it again because I want to see all these place." - Lynn Phipps, Social Documentary Photographer, Dewdney, BC.

"Finally, someoneís written a meaningful book about us." - Robert Thomas III, Artist

"Itís so real." - Joanne Hugh, Sto:lo First Nation

"Iíve read it twice now, and Iím going to read it again. Thereís so much, it will never be uninteresting to me. Itís fantastic! I really enjoyed it, especially the description and build-up of the individual characters, and the surprise ending. It was very entertaining and very honest. It was so real. Iím looking forward to reading it again." - Betty Ann Pennier, Coast Salish

"... Today the overlaps are complicated and enigmatic. They are simultaneously temporal and spiritual, the past is a constant of the present, hereditary governments coexist with elected band councils imposed by Ottawa, traditional religious values co-exist with Christianity, the old economies of salmon are integrated with high technology, tribal authorities co-exist with overlays of federal, provincial and local agencies. It is in this fascinating web of political and cultural tensions that an emerging British Columbia writer has set his remarkable first novel . . . . Mohs has spent 30 years working with the Sto:lo as an anthropologist, . . . and now skillfully educates his readers while he spins a fine story." - Stephen Hume, Vancouver Sun, Saturday, April 1, 2000

"... Devilís Run is anthropology as fiction. . . . Devilís Run is one of those books that raise awkward and perplexing questions about reality, and itís a reminder that there are necessary limits on the degree to which conventional non-fiction, in all its forms, can present reality objectively, or at least in a way that sheds light on what the Ďtruthí may be." - Terry Glavin, Georgia Straight, March 3-10, 2000
