Praise for Panama Fever

"With a sentence, Garvey has the ability to set an intense emotional mood ... Garvey's novel is not just accurate and moving historical fiction. Panama Fever is a humanitarian piece of art."

"Wickedly imaginative! ... Told with an equal amount of suspense and humour, the author created characters who are interesting and memorable ... It is a story of friendship, betrayal, greed, tragedy, human suffering and frailties, and hope, set among one of the greatest engineering undertakings of all time." The Jamaica Gleaner

"The novel takes you through earthquakes, mudslides, a revolution, plagues, and the burning and sacking of the City of Colon in rather quick succession. The writing style is rich and the backdrop lushly exotic as the wild, beautiful and very often hostile tropical setting of the Panama of the 1880's is brought to life by W.B. Garvey's skillful pen  ... This is definitely quality fiction at its best - a breath of fresh air." The Silver People Heritage Foundation

"Love pushes people through life, but that's not the sole thing that drives them. … Riveting reading, ‘Panama Fever’ is an excellent story that should be strongly considered." Midwest Book Review
