Gone On Kauai, As Reviewed By The Book Magazine Kirkus Reviews

My novel Gone On Kauai has been reviewed by Kirkus Reviews, the New York book magazine. Here's part of what they had to say:

“Perry reprises his Karl Standt character here, but this novel can easily stand on its own. The island of Kauai is a character in itself (“the flat river moved with a hypnotic slowness, like heavy floodwaters”), and Perry effectively describes its culture, including the super-rich who view Kauai as a trust-fund playground, the surfing locals who personify the laid-back island vibe, and the plague of drugs that are harvested and sold there.  Perry depicts the different sides of island life through the perspective of New Yorker Standt, who’s out of his element but relies on his instincts. Although the plot sometimes glosses over details, it eventually provides a thrilling revelation.”
 Gone On Kauai is currently on sale until March 4. You can download it as an ebook on iTunes (.epub), Amazon, Smashwords, and other retailers.
