Book by Royes Gillian


[Royes] does an outstanding job of creating a small Jamaican village - it is so vivid that the reader feels part of the environment - and deftly shows the social and political life on the island. The novel is an absorbing read and one that won't be forgotten quickly. -Barbara Cothern, Portland Book Review "Gillian Royes weaves beautiful story." -Dr. Marta Moreno Vega, author of When the Spirits Dance Mambo "Bring together a ruined hotel, a disheartened dreamer, a hard working bartender turned amateur sleuth and a mysterious beauty hiding on a tiny uninhabited island, throw in a dash of political corruption, and you have all the elements for a first class detective story, which novelist Gillian Royes certainly delivers with her novel The Goat Woman of Largo Bay. That said, the thing that makes this book impossible to put down is the author's amazing eye for the details of life in this tiny Jamaican town. How can you possibly resist a hero who cools tempers in a heated political exchange by putting on some classic Toots and the Maytals reggae music to get the vibe back on track?" -Pearl Cleage, author of Just Wanna Testify "An irresistable character is born in The Goat Woman of Largo Bay and Royes wonderfully blends suspense and the soul of the island in this smart debut." "A strong debut... I look forward to following the adventures of Shad and the inhabitants of Largo Bay." -Executive producer of Precious "The writing in The Goat Woman of Largo Bay is poetic at times and the plotting of the story is more literary in its approach but still leads to a tense climax that will have the reader engrossed to the end." -New York Journal of Books "Strong characters and vivid descriptive passages." -Kirkus Reviews
