AMERICAN TROPIC is a "neatly plotted book with an exotic setting...power-packed thriller...rises to the level of ferocious dramatic polemic against some of the worst crimes against nature and by extension humanity."-- San Francisco Chronicle, Alan Cheuse, NPR critic.
"Set in the same location as Thomas Sanchez's masterful MILE ZERO...revisits Key West in a tale of corruption, greed and eco-disasters." -- Miami Herald

“A bold eco-thriller of wild truth and poetry destined to take its place alongside 'The Monkey Wrench Gang.'”
Pulitzer Prize Winner Philip Caputo, Author of "Acts of Faith"&"A Rumor of War"
"A large cast of memorable characters...the print equivalent of a film by Robert Altman. It’s a swift-moving, entertaining book with a timely message.”
-- Richmond Times-Dispatch, Sunday lead review
“Propels its cast into a murky world of murder and consequence, with rapid-fire vignettes, an expanding collage of personalities, and a thickning mystery.” --Toronto Star
