My wife and I love Maine’s islands, so of course I’ve enjoyed all of Charlene D’Avanzo’s novels, which really capture Maine’s islands and put you there—and on the water. This new novel is terrific, and I appreciate her concerns about climate change. I must admit, I had no idea glass eel trafficking could be such an exciting story!
—George Smith, outdoor writer for Bangor Daily News
Charlene D’Avanzo does a masterful job weaving international intrigue and the ocean’s complexities, beauty, and wrath. Oceanography and science are wonderfully described as readers understand that glass eel trafficking is an international tragedy.
—Kim Camery Millick, author of Rookie Warden
