Reviews of Tropical Liaison
“Richard S. Hillman tells this rousing story of social revolution with dramatic intrigue, carefully keeping details organized while appropriately weaving sex and love into this compelling spy novel.” Editor, Tampa Bay Magazine (Nov/Dec 2016)
“Hillman brings the twists and turns of the story in dramatic climax. The author has extensive knowledge of U.S. relations with foreign countries which is demonstrated throughout the book. A very enjoyable read and I look forward to more novels written by Hillman.” Suzanne Odom, Bestsellers World
"Richard S. Hillman has written an unnerving and irresistible novel of political intrigue and betrayal in the volatile Caribbean. Professor Manny White Vidal is in way over his head but doesn't know it yet. This is a writer who knows how to wield the weapon of suspense and who knows that the only real plot is that nothing is at it seems. Tropical Liaison will remind you of the work of Daniel Silva and William Beck and will remind you as well of just why you started reading stories in the first place—to be transported to a world more vivid and, in this case, a hell of a lot scarier, than
the one you're living in."
Author of Louisiana Power and Light and Love Warps the Mind a Little, both New York Times Notable Books, among others, including No Regrets, Coyote and The Lie that Tells a Truth.
"Tropical Liaison is a well-written, entertaining, and provocative tale of an American's search for meaning in the midst of an international power-struggle. His journey is perilous, exciting, and illuminating. Richard S. Hillman's attention to detail brings the Caribbean setting to life. Being more than familiar with this region, the novelist knows how to seize the attention of the reader through every page. This enticing fictional journey, with all its merits as a novel, alsoinvites reflection about hemispheric politics. A good read."
Author of En busca del Aleph among other political
and social studies on Latin America and, particularly, on Venezuelan and hemispheric diplomacy.
"This brilliantly written story is destined to achieve its place in the literary world."
