Storm Tideby Marge Piercy
Synopses & Reviews
Storm Tide is a great mystery, an intelligent political thriller, and an emotional hurricane. It's also erotic to the core, and written to read as fast as a fierce nor'easter blowing hard across turbulent water.
AN ENGROSSING READ . . . GENUINELY SUSPENSEFUL . . . Piercy and Wood do a fine job of fleshing out the characters, their diverse backgrounds, and their changing perceptions of one another.
--The Washington Times
Storm Tide speaks with one powerful voice, moving inexorably toward tragedy even as it offers a hint of redemption.
--The New York Times Book Review
A carefully, artfully, and . . . seamlessly told story . . . The reader is totally engrossed in this stylish depiction of small-town politics, sexual vulnerability, and] insecurity of the heart.
