This German version of Barrier Island doesn’t have a whole lot going for it. Although it does have a rich corporate bad-guy on the front, I think of Tuck Loomis as more of a good ole boy who made it big, while this guy is too refined.

Also, the story takes place on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I’m not saying there aren’t any palm trees there (well, before Katrina, anyway), but that island looks suspiciously Floridian to me. Methinks the Germans are confusing this story with A Flash of Green.

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am a USA large print paperback version of Barrier Island,  printed in … um … who knows? … by CK Hall under their Thorndike Press imprint (ISBN-10 0816142637, ISBN-13 9780816142637).
