"Murderer's Wake is a delightfully deceptive, morally ambiguous tale that serves up a journey of justice equal parts dark and light. J.C. Alonso's bracing debut bristles with energy and passion, as it whisks us through the hellish underbellies of Venezuela. Alonso offers rare insight into a world we only thought we knew in fashioning a first-rate thriller that's as riveting as it is relentless." - Jon Land, USA Today bestselling author of Strong Cold Dead" and "the Caitlin Strong series."
"J.C. Alonso has written something very rare-- A beautifully crafted thriller that takes us to a vividly imaged sea, but which also asks penetrating questions about our responsibility to bring justice to an unjust world" - David Poyer, author of The Whiteness of the Whale and Deep War
