“Almost in the manner of Balzac, Joseph Hart presents a cross-section of Curaçao, from the most wretched and impoverished of its citizens to the most powerful and corrupt of its politicians. He is unflinching in his description whether of love making or of violence, and there is plenty of both in the novel.” – Phillip Mann, playwright and novelist
