PS: The Poet Laureate of North Carolina, Cathy Smith-Bowers, sent us the following comments about Endangered
"Very early into this sensuously mysterious novel, one realizes that the powerful and determined sea turtle of 500,000 years ago so elegantly and poignantly described in the prolog is not the only one who is Endangered. This story is not only a Who done it? but a very compelling Who’s doing it? I found myself being pulled between wanting to move to an island off the coast of Georgia to wanting to get as far away from one as I possibly could. Such tension is the mark of masterful writing. Bravo to the authors of this stunning mystery!"
