Publisher Description

OUTSTANDING ADVANCE PRAISE FOR UNTAMED SHORE

"Untamed Shore is both transporting and transfixing. Set in a small Baja town in the seedy 1970s, Silvia Moreno-Garcia's latest takes us into a world soaked in sunshine and secrets, where everyone is working an angle and the looming sense of menace builds with nearly each page-turn. A shrewd, exciting thriller by a writer with a fresh vision and a powerful voice."—Julia Dahl author of the award-winning Rebekah Roberts series

"Untamed Shore is a masterpiece. I loved this book, and can’t get Viridiana out of my head. Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s characters are unforgettable and no one and nothing is quite what they seem. I devoured this like one of Viridiana’s sharks. Truly a stunning work."—Amina Akhtar, author of #FashionVictim

"Silvia Moreno-Garcia's UNTAMED SHORE is a treat: the first thriller from a seasoned writer. This is a superb hybrid that's part classic whodunit, part sad love story, and part smart, pulpy noir packed with smiling snakes, a touch of mythology, and a strong female lead that's caught between her immediate reality and her dreams of escape, all inside the hermetic, oppressive hell of small-town gossip and oldfangled morality. This is a novel about greed, murder, and snowballing peccadilloes that moves forward with the power and grace of a shark. Don't miss it."—Gabino Iglesias, author of COYOTE SONGS and ZERO SAINTS

"A sense of inevitable dread builds from seemingly innocuous events in this masterful crime debut from Silvia Moreno-Garcia. The period detail is fantastic, the Mexican setting vibrant and fresh, and the noir is as murky as seawater after a shark feeding frenzy. I loved it!”—Lavie Tidhar, multiple award-winning author of A Man Lies Dreaming and Osama

“An engaging sojourn illuminated by prose as bright and clear as the Baja sun. A plot driven by characters whose motives are as murky and treacherous as stormy gulf waters.”—Mario Acevedo, author of the Felix Gomez vampire-detective series
