News & Reviews

"A crafty devil of a whodunit, this perfect blend of environmental and suspense fiction, atmospheric and rife with intrigue, will scare the devil out of you — and make you fall in love with the misunderstood, endangered Tasmanian devil. Devils Island is at once a riveting mystery and an eloquent plea to protect our natural world."

— A. J. Banner, #1 Kindle, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today bestselling author


“Buckle up for a compelling and brilliant twist on the locked room mystery. A luxurious adventure among kangaroos and Tasmanian devils on a tiny remote island turns deadly when a secretive tourist goes missing. Devils Island isn’t just a compulsively readable mystery; it's also a vital meditation on what it means to live through extinction in all its forms. I will not forget my visit to Devils Island anytime soon."

— Mindy Mejia, USA Today bestselling author of To Catch a Storm and Everything You Want Me to Be


"This one is loaded with all the danger, treachery and action a reader could wish for. Throw in the exotic location of Tasmania and you have all the makings of a terrific thriller. You never quite catch your breath as all of the secrets are revealed."

— Steve Berry, New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author of The Atlas Maneuver and the Cotton Malone series



"Devils Island has all the trappings of a traditional mystery. A small set of suspects, a confined space and an absence of authorities. But that description would not do justice to this slow-burning tale. From the beginning, an ominous air hovers over the small group of adventure travelers. Base motives reveal the potential for conflict, but the pace is sedate until events spiral out of control. A series of fiendish twists propel the action into utterly unpredictable directions as the story hurdles to a satisfying end. Add the exotic fauna and flora of the world down under and you have a great story."

— Michael Niemann, award-winning author of the Valentin Vermeulen thrillers
