“Told from the point of view of Trevor, this story explores choices, temptations, fears and consequences. It is a story packed with intrigue and surprises. It certainly gives a different look at life on Fuerteventura, aspects not normally discussed or known about by the tourists visiting there. Fact and fiction are carefully blended in a story with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing and enthralled.” – Splashes into Books

“Storytelling at its best.” – The Bookwormery

“A Prison in the Sun is a lot more than just a mystery with literary tones…A well-researched and well-written story, A Prison in the Sun takes you on an emotional rollercoaster ride…I just didn’t want the story to end! Engrossing and unique, I highly recommend A Prison in the Sun – The Book Decoder

“Great work moves people, for better or worse, and this did that. For a novel taking a dark, horrific premise, and utilizing that to highlight the bitter cervices of the human mind, this is everything it needed to be.” – Vain Radical
