"Ambition, determination, drugs, booze, the raging hormones of youth are masterfully brought to life in this great piece of literary fiction. One of the best books I’ve read recently." – Joan Ashley
“Linda Collison blends nautical adventure, a story of the supernatural, and a trip into imperial China of long ago. When you’ve read Water Ghosts, expect to be haunted.” – Seymour Hamilton, author of the Astreya Trilogy.
