Ransom Island

Ransom Island – A Novel by Miles Arceneaux

Ransom Island Stephen F. Austin University Press, 2014

It’s 1953, and life is good for the Sweetwater clan on Ransom Island. Duke Ellington is coming to play a big dance, but not everyone in Jim Crow-era Texas is happy about the idea. Throw in some Galveston gangsters looking to expand their empire by any means necessary, and suddenly life on Ransom Island becomes crowded, complicated… and very, very dangerous. Best-selling author Sarah Bird said, “Like Carl Hiaasen and John D. MacDonald, Miles Arceneaux sets his dark doings by blue water and has a ball doing it. Ransom Island may be his best one yet.”
