Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Gruber’s intricate thriller ignites in the very first chapter…First-time novelist Gruber keeps his far-flung locations, complicated characters, and anthropological information perfectly balanced in this finely crafted, intelligent and original work.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Valerie Leonard reads with a low-key yet effective style that allows the story to unfold. With each twist, Leonard provides just the right tone and level of emotion.” AudioFile
“This debut thriller should come with a warning—do not pick up if you have anything else planned for as long as it takes to read it! Tropic of Night is a dramatic, stylish, smart, and very strongly plotted novel, mixing anthropology, ethnography, sorcery, mayhem, and murder in an intriguing and wholly captivating story.”  Amazon.com, editorial review
