From: Jennifer Oliver

"I have probably read thousands of books since I was a child and I swear that this book is one of the absolute best I've ever read! I'm only a quarter of the way through and I'm so happy that there is so much more to come... I think the fact that Evans places so much history and visualization of the island makes me consciously absorb every word."

From: Becky A. Dayhuff -The Caribbean

"David Evans has done a fine job with character development. The people of The Judas Bird are so very much like the real-life residents of Roatán. Mr. Evans obviously loves the Roatánians, and that love is exemplified in his descriptions of every day island life, as well as the history of those who came centuries ago and left a little of themselves. The pirates, buccaneers, Indians, Spanish, English, Scots, and slaves who melded into today's islanders are also central to The Judas Bird's plot. It is a rousing adventure story, a love story, and an historical novel all rolled into one."

From: Gordon Glass -Seattle

"I have just finished the wonderful book The Judas Bird. It was a very easy and greatly entertaining read... not to mention the historical richness of the text. Without having yet been to Roatán, the book did a splendid job of taking me from the cool drizzle of the Pacific Northwest and immersing me in the warmth of the Caribbean island. Evans did a really superb job of character development... I feel I know them. I don't think I could have found a more perfect introduction to the island than The Judas Bird."

From: Catherine McCabe -Travel Writer

"What a wonderful story Evans tells in The Judas Bird! His book weaves a tale chock full of intrigue, imagery, and beautifully done dialog, especially when he writes in the local dialect. The Judas Bird perfectly captures life on Roatán."

From: Alan Jenkin

"Thanks to David Evans for a well-told, rollicking good story! Some books, when you finish them, leave a sadness like saying goodbye to an old friend. The Judas Bird is one of those books; I hope there will be sequel! What a delightful read!"

From: Ron Thompson

"David Evans has written an intriguing new novel that interweaves history, love and deception in the western Caribbean. His characters seem real and rich. The Judas Bird is a tightly-crafted, yet carefree read as well as a beautiful lesson on what happens when paradise comes up against modern greed. This new novel focuses upon the island of Roatán, and picks up where Herman Wouk's Don't Stop the Carnival leaves off."

From: Jana Eylands

"I'm enjoying every page myself and can't wait for the sequel! Glad to have mine signed by the author as a personal keepsake of my lovely island home."

From: Barbara Prehn

"I just finished The Judas Bird, and so now please tell me what to do while waiting for the movie! What a great story!"

From: Mark Durham -Independence, Missouri

"An excellent book; it kept me up way past bedtime several nights."

From: Judy Wright

"I recently finished David Evans’ book The Judas Bird and just loved it! I couldn't put it down. It really is a wealth of info about Roatán Island! I hope he will write more about the island. It was a great combination of non-fiction and fiction!"

From: Judy Allred

"I have just turned the last page in The Judas Bird and I'm so sad it had to end. Loved every minute of the read... it was such a treat getting to know Roatán, from its history to its people, and in-between. Evans has put all of his years of study to use in this book and it made it so fascinating for me. I also loved the big print. His characters were well drawn and I hated to end my friendship with them. I'm still thinking about them as I write."

From: Anne Gilmore -Museum of Anthropology, Wake Forest University

"As an avid reader of mystery and historical fiction, I was hooked soon after I began this novel. The story has it all; including delightful characters and an insightful view of the culture of the people of Roatán Island. Well-researched accounts of pirates, buried treasure and intrigue are smoothly blended with ancient legends, mystery, and romance. The Judas Bird is highly recommended to those who will enjoy exciting adventure neatly mixed with colorful accounts of the past and present of a small Caribbean island. This truly is a "Must Read"! You will be left wanting more!"

From: Taoko Grande

"I was caught up in the excitement and sheer kinetic force of this splendid story. The Judas Bird is a masterful historical novel-- well done!"
