Critic Reviews

"The author weaves his engaging plot through Swiss chalets, Carribean marinas, Texas courtrooms and captivating characters before twisting readers toward a curious conclusion. In this romantic mystery, Manchee's killer seems so certain. Then a sail from the Bahamas turns it upside down. But what a ride along the way! (The Book Reader)
"Manchee is as proficient as Grisham." (Dallas Observer)
