Críticas: ""On Hurricane Island" is unflinchingly political, unashamedly suspenseful, and, above all, deeply human. Here is a writer who knows how to ramp up the tension while never sacrificing the spirit of her conviction, the sense of grounding in the natural world, or the heartbreaking complexity of her characters."
--Naomi Benaron, Bellwether Prize winner for "Running the Rift"
""On Hurricane Island" is a chilling, Kafkaesque story about what happens when the United States does to citizens at home what it has done to others abroad. Meeropol puts the reader right into the middle of these practices through characters about whom you really care and a story you can't put down; a really good book."
--Michael Ratner, Center for Constitutional Rights
""On Hurricane Island" takes us into the world of an imprisoned math professor who is clueless as to why she's being interrogated. We enter the reality of federal agents facing terrifying expectations, and of a rookie civilian employee horrified by secret tasks thrust on her. Ellen Meeropol's masterful novel rings of truth--a petrifying truth that had me whipping pages, covering my eyes, and questioning how much I really know about the growing cost of the War on Terror."
--Randy Susan Meyers, author of "The Comfort of Lies"
"In "On Hurricane Island," Ellen Meeropol takes on the complexities and dangers of contemporary life in a novel that starts fast and ratchets up the tension all the way to the end. She brings to her writing a sharp, observant eye, great skill in characterization, and, best of all, a talent for taut, suspenseful narrative in the style of Graham Greene."
--W. D. Wetherell, author of "A Century of November"
"Ellen Meeropol can be counted on to write with intelligence and heart. In "On Hurricane Island," she also manages to give us characters who we care deeply about, perfect pitch dialogue and a gripping story about civilian detention centers designed for the likes of you and me. Thoughtful and compelling."
--Jacqueline Sheehan, author of "Picture This"
