"A well-crafted mystery with as many turns and thrills as the wild Alaskan coastline where it unfolds."--Margaret Coel, Author of The Lost Bird
More and more lately, I've been discovering mysteries written in and/or based in Alaska. I grew up there so I'm always interested in reading books featuring my home state. However, most are set in northern Alaska and I grew up on an island in Southest Alaska. When I received this book, I was doubly excited because not only was it set in Southeast Alaska, but it was written by someone who actually lived there. In her first mystery, Marcia Simpson takes us on a suspense filled adventure which shows the beauty and dangers of the coastal towns and villages in Southeast Alaska. While piloting her supply barge to the small villages surrounding Wrangell, Liza Romero discovers a small boy washed up on the shoreline, barely above the rising tide. She rescues the boy and finds herself in the middle of a life and death struggle involving murder, smuggling and ancient Tlinget culture. Not only does this book offer great descriptive passages of the landscape, it also rings true as to the types of people populating this last frontier. The suspenseful twists and turns of the mystery are well written and keep the pace constantly moving. There is never a dull moment, never a breather, never a wrong turn. I did figure out the bad guy pretty early on but it didn't detract from the adventure and fun in the book as a whole. This one is definately a must-read! --Cathy Gallagher, mysterybooks.about.com
...I hope to see Marcia simpson someday since her 1st novel, CROW IN STOLEN COLORS was excellent. It is about Lisa Romero ,a Lummi from Washington, who is now in Wrangle Alaska to recover from the death of her cop husband. She is running a freight service on a 60ft. boat to the islands. She finds a small boy on a beach, rescues him,finds a corpse and the bullets start flying. I didn't have much trouble figuring out the bad guy, the climatic ending was tense, and there is the question of who is going to survive all of this. Many of the characters do turn into pleasnt surprises. I liked this story so much I wrote a review for Amazon. --Loraine in very sunny Washington.
