    A gripping story from start to finish!  I was definitely drawn in by the lush description of life on St. Lucia and kept turning the page because of the intricate story line.  Also, the author kept ending chapters on a cliff-hanger and then I had to keep reading and find out what was going to happen!

    I may sound like a broken record but I wish writers edited their texts or had someone who knows what they’re doing do so. This story jumps from the narrator’s past as a child on the Caribbean Island of St Lucia to his adult self’s recent past in the US to the present in which he has returned to his ghosts on the Island. The story begins with 3 boys looking at the body of a fourth lying by a body of water. It jumps to the death of the narrator’s own son and then has him return to the island to rehash ghosts of the past. The story jumps in nightmare fashion from the past to the present seeming to grudgingly give up its details. The story draws on the influence of rich island families, local voodoo, and superstition. The author keeps the reader in the dark as to the exact details of the murder at the centre of this story until the very end.

    Really enjoyed this book. It hooked me from the first page and kept me wanting to get to the next chapter and then the next chapter.
