Reviews - What do customers think about Opal Eye Devil?
Great Read Dec 24, 2000
Opal Eye Devil was one of those rare books that made me sad the closer to the end I got. Reading it made me feel like I had been transported beyond the pages to 1900 Shanghai and became physically involved in the story. Riveting!
Opal Eye Devil is Irresistible Nov 24, 2000
I picked up a copy of Opal Eye Devil at a November book signing. Much to my delight, it turned out to be a thrilling tale of intrigue, violence and love. It reads like a saga, but there are no wasted words to detract from the riveting pace. I was literally transported to 1900 Shanghai by a bold and memorable cast of characters. The setting, people, customs engrossed me so that I felt like I was living the story. Opal Eye Devil flows with writerly intelligence and possesses a wonderful cinematic quality. The last novel that seized my mind so was James Clavell's Tai-Pan. Simply put, Opal Eye Devil is a great book. Mike
