Eric agreed, because Shadrack Myers was known in Largo Bay as a smart-man, in the best sense of the term. He might be small and wiry, they said, but he was as bright as any Kingston professor and as wily as Anansi, the spider of the folk tales. The only response the younger man heard was a grunt, accompanied by a cloud of pipe tobacco, as always Canadian maple, which blew in with the sea breeze, filling the empty restaurant. When it was finally too dark to see, Eric stood and tapped the dead ashes from his pipe bowl against the step.

Kind of blah. The writing, though simple, was not engaging or easy to read. I also didn't care for the story, because I didn't care about the characters. I'm sure the author had this fabulous idea, but when she put her thoughts to paper, the story just came out immature and pedestrian. Even the end, which sang sweetly, was naive - realistically what would really happen was never addressed. It's almost as if the author just gave up. Main character is Shad, who works as a bartender for Eric, a very nice man, who came from America, because he hated the cold. Eric wanted to operate a hotel, but the hotel was destroyed by a hurricane. One day, Shad sees something on the island, thinks it's a goat, but it turns out to be a woman, Simone. Book is set in Jamaica, and it could have been beautiful with lush descriptions of the island, the water, the greenery and the people. I just couldn't get a feel for the area, or even the bar Shad was working at, or any of the characters. The diary writing was a bit strange and not really revealing. The book just wasn't interesting, and to hear there is a series is surprising, considering the banality of the characters. It just wasn't a positive reading experience.

As you are reading this novel, you will be reading in Jamaican. The story line is interesting but some of the descriptions are repeated far too often, such as "she sucked her teeth" or "he sucked his teeth". I found it bothersome at first and then bordering hilarious because of the number of repetitions. It's worth a read but be prepared to look past musty woman smells and teeth and to read with a Jamaican dialect.

Maybe I am a prejudiced reader! I grew up in the southern Dutch Caribbean. And, the lilting British West Indian speech was heard every day of my life, cradle to college for so many from different islands came to work the huge American oil refinery. I could hear their spoken words as I read what Gillian has written. The descriptions are so perfectly familiar that I can feel them and smell them and inhale the tropical air as my eyes took in the meaning of the words on each page.

For a tropical child, the whole book, words, story, suspense, characters, local color, were expertly drawn.

Not having lived in my American mother's country until I had to come to the States for college, I have always felt exiled from my native island. Gillian described the plight of a Third Culture Kid very well as she developed the characters of the siblings at the center of the story.

Looking forward to Gillian Royes' further plotting the lives of Shad and his companions!

Gillian Royes has really written a good one! When I first heard that she was writing this book, I took a wait and see attitude, hoping for the best. And Gillian came through! Not only was the book compelling to read, it also provided a wonderful look at life in a small village in Jamaica, one of my favorite islands in the Caribbean. Gillian's writing style was immensely satisfying, and her descriptions of her characters were full and very well developed. I felt I got to know her characters as my own friends. If you want to learn a little bit about life in a small village in Jamaica but don't have the time or fortune to actually live there, read this book. Its like being there!

I loved this book. The story and characters were very real to me and the plot was entertaining. Anyone who has ever been to a Caribbean island will also appreciate the setting and the characters. Gillian did a great job and I can't wait for the sequel to be released next month!!

Doomblade
Good first effort. The plan for a sequel is too blatant. But she does secure the reader's interest. I'll read the next installment with interest

Engaging sorry though not exactly a "detective" story. Good relaxing read.

Really enjoyed this book! Characters well formed, plot keep me reading. Can't wait to read the next one and see what happens to Shad & Eric.
