Praise

“[A] power-packed thriller. . . . This neatly plotted book with an exotic setting rises to the level of ferocious dramatic polemic against some of the worst crimes against nature—and, by extension, humanity.”
    —San Francisco Chronicle

“Set in . . . the same location as Thomas Sanchez’s masterful Mile Zero. . . . [He] revisits Key West in a tale of corruption, greed, and eco-disasters.”
    —The Miami Herald

“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
 
“[A] fever-dream ecothriller. . . . Incandescent . . . [and] fiery. . . . Sanchez has an arresting voice and his own anger at the depredations of greedy developers and ignorant tourists infuses every page with a sense of near-apocalyptic doom.”
    —Booklist

“A bold eco-thriller of wild truth and poetry destined to take its place alongside The Monkey Wrench Gang.”  
     —Philip Caputo, author of Acts of Faith and A Rumor of War

American Tropic propels its cast into a murky world of murder and consequence, with rapid-fire vignettes, an expanding collage of personalities, and a thickening mystery.”
     —The Toronto Star

“A fever-dream intensity and a pace as breathless as a steamy island night. . . . Turns [Key West] into a . . . nerve-wracking setting . . . [of] Florida noir.” —The Tampa Bay Times
“A terrifically written, important thriller!”
     —Andrew Davis, director of the blockbuster film The Fugitive

“There are two elements that make American Tropic worth reading. The first is Sanchez’s rare ability to peel back the flora and fauna of his real-world settings in order to get into the cracks and crevices of scenery and backgrounds that most people notice fleetingly. . . . The second is the power of his prose, which, after four decades of writing, remains undiminished.”
     —Bookreporter
