Reviews - What do customers think about Leeward: A Strange Story?
Terrific Thriller! Aug 16, 2003
Author David Bradley has crafted an intriguing story about a group of people who end up at the Leeward Hotel on the small island of St. Barbe. Tragedy binds them together. Each one has lost someone close to them - but death hasn't been satisfied. There is something else on the island - and monster nicknamed "The Guard." The island police don't want anyone to leave, and a mysterious group called "The Organization" appears to have a hidden agenda that could cause destruction to many people beyond the tiny island.
"Leeward" is an intricate thriller that will leave you on the edge of your seat. I look forward to more of David Bradley's work.
Hold onto your seat Aug 12, 2003
This exciting novel puts an unusual twist on a subject that is on all our minds -- international terrorism. The action is centered on a beautiful island in the Caribbean where horror lurks. I would guess that Leeward is set somewhere in the 1980s and 1990s but it doesn’t really matter. This is a fast-moving thriller involving a number of different people with different nationalities and backgrounds. They are bound together in a common purpose: to defeat the apparently unconquerable Organization. The book is loaded with horror, tragedy, love and hate and is hard to put down -- you never know what’s going to happen next. A cool read.

Leeward's intrigue will blow you away Jul 27, 2003
If you enjoy a good treasure hunt filled with mystery and suspense, you'll love Leeward-- a thrilling, timely story of intrigue and international terrorism set on tropical St. Barbe Island. The action begins in the hotel gardens one steamy night when a four-legged creature terrifies a little girl. Soon after, the child's older cousin, Jon, and his striking African-American girlfriend, Josie, discover a horribly mutilated body in the island's reservoir, high in the rainforest. While on vacation from Boston, Josie's father, Judge Marvin Winchester, unintentionally intrudes upon a meeting at his hotel in London; he is puzzled to see the dim image of St. Barbe's on a projector screen. In Stockholm, information agency director Anna Andersson decides to visit Leeward when she discovers that her two Caribbean agents have disappeared on St. Barbe's. Soon after arriving, she finds their bodies near the hotel. And this is only the beginning . . . .
Leeward is another classic D. Edward Bradley novel with all the usual hallmarks-- unexpected twists, flashes of imagination, action and suspense, and well-researched characters, locations and politics. This well written page-turner is a must read novel guaranteed to keep readers on the edge of their seats.
