"The ultimate fate of this book's luckless protagonist will keep readers hooked to this survival story/historical crime novel."- Kirkus Reviews
"Sometimes lyrical, sometimes grisly and always hypnotic, Argyle's tale is edge of your seat reading from start to finish. Beautifully crafted."-Jonathan Woods, author, A Death in Mexico
For the contemporary survivor, Elle is a heroine to look up to, even if the view be divided equally between horror, awe and admiration.
Argyle's narrative is strong and sometimes lovely. With little dialogue, Elle's story moves forward as a small, sturdy boat in a choppy sea, becoming more and more compelling as thejourney continues.- Review by C.S. Gilbert for KONK LIFE, Key West
The atmosphere ofthe time, the fragility of life in the outlying islands, the intensityof the action and above all the way that a murder goes on sending outits ripple effects long after the initial killing, haunting the murderer and poisoning the environment, reminded me most of all of PeterMatthiessen's "the Killing of Mr. Watson." A gripping first novel: Ihope for more from this author.- Rosalind Brakenbury, author of Becoming George Sand
