This book is why I love GoodReads so much. I doubt I would have discovered this book if not for this site and all the challenges and groups it offers. This was an amazing book that brought to light not just a horrible true tragedy but also what life was like in those times, and an interesting look at race relations. This book has a lot to offer and is well written.

There was absolutely no portent that anything evil would descent upon these poor, unfortunate souls.

part 2 Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Have to warn them! I couldn’t see what was chasing him, but I could hear it muttering and cursing. My mom was right, I should have been excited. The ground shook as it got closer. For the first time in my life, I’d almost made it an entire year without getting expelled.

This is a shocking tale of horrific murders at sea. The crime takes place aboard a sleek schooner just two miles of the shores of a tropical island named Utila. There were eleven in all comprising the passengers and crew, and they were taken entirely by surprise by the murderer. He was a respected citizen of the island and beyond suspicion of committing such killings, much less to consider getting away with the deed.

This is a shocking tale of horrific murders at sea. The crime takes place aboard a sleek schooner just two miles of the shores of a tropical island named Utila. There were eleven in all comprising the passengers and crew, and they were taken entirely by surprise by the murderer. He was a respected citizen of the island and beyond suspicion of committing such killings, much less to consider getting away with the deed. The first leg of the voyage was to be the twenty-two miles to the neighboring island of Roatan, part of the Bay Islands group lying a few miles off the old Spanish Main, the southern coast of Honduras. It was once a colony of England then later given over to the Spanish due to the pressure from the U.S president James Monroe. A few passengers would disembark there and the vessel would continue on to a mainland anchorage to purchase a load of cattle. The night would be filled with the wails and tears of the surprised victims as one by one their blood was spilled onto the deck of the Olympia. They sailed through a calm sea and a sky filled with glittering stars, dimly lit by a crescent moon. There was absolutely no portent that anything evil would descent upon these poor, unfortunate souls. The island had enjoyed years of prosperity for they had been the first to ship bananas to the United States. The island growers maintained an advantage over the Standard Fruit and Steamship Company, along with United Fruit as they had not yet become dominant competing suppliers. The enormity and vulgar audacity of the crime will both horrify and mystify the reader as he/she struggles through trials and tears of this dark night.

I spend a lot of time on the island of Roatan and was really looking forward to reading this account of true events on the neighboring island of Utila. This is a great story but lacked good editing. I was most disappointed in the graphic sexual content. I understand some of the information was important to the full understanding of the story and culture but as a reader I feel it could have been presented in a more tactful, less sensual way.

Having lived on the island of Roatan Honduras I appreciated the dialog and the research the author did on the book. I knew many of the families mentioned in the book who are relatives of many of the families on Utila. The story was fast paced and based on true events that the author wrote about. I could actually see the places mentioned. I loved the book and wished that it would go on and on. I understand Mr. Jackson is now deceased and I am sure he had many more stories to write about.

This book is one of several written my an ancestor of mine. He is a talented writer from my fraternal grandmother's side of the family. The story is of a family and their struggles to live and prosper in a relatively undeveloped country. But, beware, the story turns bloody at times and shows that crime and greed existed even back then.

Can't put this book down! What a story!
Should also be a movie.

This is a very telling tale of a seagoing murder spree. I have connections to both Honduras and the Bay Islands, so many of the family names are known to me. To think this is a real tale takingplace in a truly peaceful location is astounding.

Well worth your time to read.

And the Sea Shall Hide Them was a very good book. It is a story I heard all my growing up years, because the heroin was my Grandfather's cousin. I was caught up in the book from the beginning. It is worth the read!

A great story of community. Based on an actual event, this is a story about a misdirected man and a close knit community.
THIS BOOK, WITH ALL OF ITS POSSIBLITIES AND TWISTS, COULD HAVE DEVELOPED AND ENDED IN SO VERY MANY WAYS. THERE WAS A TRAGIC CRIME. HOW IT WAS SOLVED AND HOW THE HEROINE WAS SAVED IS ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE TALES THAT KEEP YOU GOING BACK TO THE BOOK JUST TO FIND THE FINAL OUTCOME. WONDERFUL READ. WELL WORTH THE TIME.
