KIRKUS REVIEW

Adventure-romance of the people of Home Island who seek the truth of what befell the Christophe, the island's ship and almost only means of support. Bankruptcy, hunts on the reefs, the goodness of Henri and Joseph, the two searching brothers are elements in the trail towards exposing evil and a story that captures the Caribbean in all its tropic color, the isolation and other world life of the islanders. There is a situation of wife desertion by one of the fraudulents, but it doesn't mar the over all value of the story for young people.
