Quill & Quire review of Blue Mountain Trouble, a first novel from Jamaican-Canadian Martin Mordecai:
The story begins with a bang. A pair of twins, walking down a mountain to their village school, encounter in the morning mist a vision of a huge, disembodied goat’s head. The vision fades, and seconds later the ground in front of them trembles and slides away. Was the goat a malevolent presence, or did it save them from injury or worse? Already, the book is a grabber.
