Praise for Another Sun

“In Another Sun, Timothy Williams takes us on a tour of an island we think we know something about, but goes deep into the true Guadeloupe as only someone intimately familiar with the place can truly go. Anne Marie Laveaud is a woman of sharp smarts and tenacity, and the storyline offers fresh surprises throughout.”
—Sarah Weinman, editor of Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives

Another Sun evokes an atmospheric Guadeloupe layered by witchcraft, vestiges of French colonialism, and domestic terrorist movements, yet grounded by the heart. An intriguing novel with a unique main character in Judge Anne Marie Laveaud.”
—Cara Black, national bestselling author of Murder Below Montparnasse

“Fans of Williams’s other books and readers who enjoy their crime fiction set in exotic locations will welcome Anne Marie with open arms.”
Library Journal

“Williams delivers a saga of dying French colonialism in 1980 Guadeloupe—a story as convoluted as the racial strains afflicting he island’s diverse, contentious population…. Laveaud, despite a strong sense of justice, is buffeted endlessly by the strong winds of change that engulf one mere murder…. [A] tapestry of colonial misrule.”
Publishers Weekly

Another Sun is a complex, atmospheric novel, made all the more fascinating by Williams’ painstaking attention to sensory, sociopolitical, and historical detail, and by the author’s obvious passion for the written word.”
—Mystery Scene Magazine

Another Sun is a distinct, involving, and entertaining addition to the top rank of crime fiction.”
—International Noir Fiction

“In Another Sun Williams provides an interesting view into the politics and race relations of a small island under colonial rule…. Not everyone welcomes the ruling power and intrigue abonds….”
—Crimespree Magazine

“A tale of envy and greed and sex envenomed by the inevitable racism of colonial politics.”
—The Advocate

“Williams captured the essence and spirit of Guadeloupe and its people beautifully. His story telling style is notably subtle, often requiring his audience to come to conclusions about crucial plot markers of their own accord.”
Booklover Book Reviews

“Dark, gritty. This one is really interesting.”
—Good Morning Texas

“The writing here reveals a veteran’s confidence and at the same time features an enthusiasm you might expect from an author much earlier in his career. The complex interactions between the characters are handled delicately and their feelings and intentions are conveyed in language both subtle and plain. This novel has restored my faith in the possibility of finding something new in a sea of the familiar. Highly recommended.”
—HorrorWorld

“You may think you know where this well plotted novel is going but Timothy Williams has some major and even unsettling surprises in store for you… and the issues this story raises will linger long after you finish it.”
—Book Loons
