Review

Winner of the coveted Kirkus Star
Fox fuses tantalizing action, adventure and memorable characters with nearly three decades of real-life experience to deliver an addictive page-turner with blistering intensity.

- Kirkus

"The Moonhawker is a page-turning novel filled with twists and turns that will have you on the edge of your seat. It's a very cinematic and sweeping novel that begs to be made into a movie. I highly recommend this stunning debut novel." -Douglas R. Cobb of Best Sellers World

"The Moonhawker is definitely a top-of-the-line action mystery that comes fully loaded to provide an edge-of-your-seat reading experience. Fox tells the thrilling tale of complex and unpredictable protagonist Atticus Gunner who is hurled from the pages almost as soon as you open the book." -Joseph Yurt of Reader Views

I have visited Washington Island several times. When I heard this book was set on Washington Island, I wanted to read it.

I was not disappointed. The Moonhawker kept me engaged and entertained as it brought to life Atticus Gunner and a whole cast of characters. I found myself quickly immersed in the lives of Atticus, his new boss Butch, his daughters and the other folks in his life.

The book portrayed life in a small, isolated community with subtle interplay of personalities, while keeping the reader entertained with an action plot filled with intrigue and excitement.

The book was tough to put down, as I wanted to see what was next and how Atticus would handle it. The action kept coming as he continued to work on solving the mystery that brought him to the island in the first place.

I read in the author's bio that The Moonhawker took 30 years to complete, I hope the sequel will not take that long.

"The Moonhawker" by George Fox is an unbelievable outing into a world many people don't realize exists. Having traveled to Washington Island a few times over the years, I've always been curious as to the mysteries it holds. This incredible novel by an "islander" helps peel back the onion a few layers. The book reads like a Dan Brown novel. In addition to an incredible plot, George Fox is one of the few writers I've ever known that can actually write a fight scene. In addition, his geographic and nautical descriptions are spot on. Whether it be the Niagara Escarpment, his discussion of "The Boils," or skimming across the ice on a snowmobile dodging the "shoves," the author actually makes you feel like you're there. The protagonist is a combination of a Jack Ryan and a Robert Langdon. Sort of an "every man" character that gets caught up in a hideous plot. He is also human, with his own flaws. I'm so tired of reading "black and white" characters. Atticus Gunner has his weaknesses - a true human character.

I know this is a rambling review - but I'm unbelievably impressed by this novel and would like to share it with all.

Very very good book must read.
Moon Hawker by George A fox was well written. The novel is a thriller with action and exciting detailed description through out the book. As the story unfolds and the plot thickens makes you want to finish the book to see what happens. The characters in the book seems real and makes you feel like being part of the story. The setting on Washington Ialand and Lake Michigan brings back past memories of visting various islands and boating made me feel like I was Atticus Gunner.
As the novel was ending i was so intrigued with the book i wanted to read more filled with romance murder and solving organized crime.

Higly recommended

George Fox's book kept me interested for the entire book. I loved his portrayal of the problems a school administrator encounters, being a retired school teacher myself. And his knowledge of boating had to come from years of experience. Washington Island is a beautiful place and he did it justice.

Format: Paperback
George Fox's first novel Moonhawker would appeal to anyone loving mystery, adventure, romance, and action. It is an easy read, full of vivid details and intriguing plotlines. Set on Washington Island, off the tip of Door County, Wisconsin, the island setting brings a unique element to the story of Atticus' relationships and quest for adventure, drawing on the author's personal experiences there. It is obvious that he has lived much of the life he writes about as his passion for sailing, adventure, education, and romance come through in his book.

As I reader, I could hardly put the book down, but when I did it was easy to pick up and continue on, being thoroughly engaged throughout. This book would lend itself well to a sequel. I would love to read "what happens next!" Furthermore, the book could easily be made into a film - it is just that good!!
I hope that he will consider writing another.

A great read. Characters were well developed around a fun story of intrigue set on Washington Island. He shows a great knowledge of life's problems and benefits of living on an island, as well as of sailing and educational issues. Enjoyed reading every word; hated to have it come to an end. I do hope he writes another. I will follow him closely.
