advanced praise for Blacktip Island

"Blacktip Island is fun and funny, its characters vivid. Take your time and dive into this adventurous story.”
– Portland Book Review

“Another winner from Tim W. Jackson! Protagonist Blake Calloway is in way over his head in this humorous adventure in paradise. Blacktip Island rocks!”
– Award winner Kathy Brandt, author of Swimming with the Dead

“Five Stars. Blacktip Island will make you laugh and keep you guessing. The storyline keeps readers hooked, and the characters add laughter, suspense, romance and everything in between to take this book to another level.”
– San Francisco Book Review

“Blacktip Island is a fascinating, well-written story . . . with the hero attempting to avoid detection, eco-terrorists trying to stop construction of a new airport, a beautiful bartender keeping her own secrets, and hunts for pirate treasure each overlapping the other. But the story is less driven by the plot than by the characters and the idyllic setting . . . which makes good fiction.”
– David K. McDonnell for Reader Views

“Beautifully written with a thriller-like pace, Blacktip Island will keep you guessing ‘til the very end.”
– Bonnie J. Cardone, author of the Cinnamon Greene Adventure Mysteries

“Jackson has a strong voice that makes for an entertaining read from beginning to end. The characters are well-crafted and bold. Blacktip Island is a fun adventure, with a motley crew that can easily become addictive.”
– IndieReader
