Twisted, Disturbing, Gripping... www.inthenews.co.uk "In a genre which is essentially one big clone war, Darren E Laws had produced one of the few novels worth sitting up for and taking interest in. Nicely plotted, briskly paced, a foreshadowing of an excellent writer in all likelihood, and one that I shall be keeping a gruesomely de-socketed eye on." Andrew McQuade, GoreZone I read your book..."Wow!" I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm normally a Sci-Fi / Fantasy man - The result of too much Dungeons and Dragons as a kid!! But Turtle Island is well in there as one of the books I just couldn't put down. I was even reading it at home and it takes a lot to turn me off from the PS2!! Is there a sequel? I shall be waiting for it with baited breath. Once again, great book. ----Andy Doran Just wanted to let you know I really enjoyed reading your book although it did make me squirm in parts ! Let me know if you release anything else. ---Claire Hepton The book is excellent, really gripping stuff. I am thoroughly enjoying it and I desperately want to know the ending. ----George Jolly Congratulations on your fantastic novel, I'm addicted !!!! I have nail marks all through the pages I have read where I have been gripping the book that tightly!! I look forward to reading your future work. ----Emma J Baker I have finished 'Turtle Island' and I thought it was brilliant, I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. Let me know once the sequel is published! ----Lynda Swales Full of suspense and intrigue. Very well written. "A peaceful haven, now turned to fear, a body washed ashore up the river." This is exciting and full of intrigue. ----Valerie Boggess Darren E Laws has got style, sexual choice, atmosphere, time and POV in the same first sentence. A Dick Frances touch. Very professional. ----Mary Dresser A web of deception, entwined with a depth of sensual sex undergoing a great murder mystery. Great. ----Joyce Rapier Darren E Laws has a scary way with words. This book is to be read with the lights on. Congratulations. Now I have to go and make sure my doors are locked. ---- Jacqueline Schumacher
From the Back Cover
When the body of a man is washed up in the river; Turtle Island, Missouri is awoken from being a peaceful haven and thrust into the attention of the national media. The case is solved rather all too conveniently and F.B.I agent Georgina O'Neil is left with severe doubts - have they caught the right man? A feeling that is justified after case Detective Montoya and his family are kidnapped and a web site is set up promising America its first 'live execution'. Turtle Island is now thrust into global spotlight and the world gets to vote on who the killer will choose next. As O'Neil digs deeper she finds evidence of a paedophile ring that could run into the heart of the police. No longer sure who they should trust, O'Neil and case partner, Detective LaPortiere, have to find the Montoya's and save them before an 8pm deadline. The clock is ticking...
