Product Details


“An outstanding locked-room mystery combining whodunit and action into a marvelous adventure mystery. Its cast of exotic characters are rendered with precision and detail. The dialogue matches the characters and the story perfectly. There are several instances where Spider’s cursing resembles high art, requiring a second and third reading to admire clever vulgarity. The plotting is devilishly tight, Spider is intelligent and tough, and, for this reader, the culprit was hidden until the final pages.”

Mystery Scene

“Excellent…. Goble adroitly combines action and deduction.”

Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW

“A pirate detective? Ahoy, mateys! Steve Goble presents us with an extremely likable swashbuckler with a brain; a murder mystery whodunit with diabolical twists, fiery damsels, quirky characters, and historical accuracy; and sea-bound action that would make Errol Flynn proud. An immensely fun read!”

—Raymond Benson, author of In the Hush of the Night and several James Bond thrillers

“You may have read a locked-room mystery, but never one like this! Spider John is back, and he’s better than ever, solving murder on the high seas with a lusty lot of pirates muddying the waters.”

—Nichole Christoff, award-winning author of the Jamie Sinclair private eye series

“In this second seafaring adventure, Goble lures readers into the pirate-infested waters of the Caribbean, where danger lurks around every spar and where men—and women—must rely on their sharpest wits to survive. Grab your cutlass and prepare for a rousing voyage into another perplexing mystery!”
—Alyssa Maxwell, author of the Gilded Newport Mysteries series

“A rip-roaring page-turner filled with swashbuckling action, a delightfully piratical cast, and a twisting mystery whose treasure chest of clues will keep readers guessing all the way to the thrilling final showdown and reveal.”

—Susan Spann, author of the Hiro Hattori mysteries

The Devil’s Wind combines top-notch mystery writing with gritty portrayals of pirates that never stoop to clichés. It’s an intriguing, adventurous, and page-turning read.”

—Andrew Welsh-Huggins, author of the Andy Hayes private eye series and winner of the 2017 Al Blanchard prize for best New England short crime fiction
