KIRKUS REVIEW

Widowed Liza Romero, struggling to advertise her waterbound delivery business and her cojones under the demanding conditions of the south Alaska coast, thinks her life can’t get any bleaker even before this debut novel has gotten underway. But things promptly get heat up when Liza takes a seven-year-old named James from a spray-drenched rock in Alaska’s Kindergarten Bay aboard her creaking old freighter, Salmon Eye, and finds that the men who bushwhacked James’s uncle Goran, a friend of Liza’s disreputable Tlingit acquaintance Crow, haven’t given up on the idea of killing James too.
