Praise for Gumbo Limbo:
"Corcoran lubricates his tangled plot with lashings of rum and beer and keeps it moving across a shrewdly observed landscape… The gumbo is spicy, the limbo is swift in this hot pepper of a novel."
- Publishers Weekly (Starred Review), August 9, 1999
"Tom Corcoran delivers a well-plotted, atmospheric mystery that even surpasses his superior debut, The Mango Opera. The author keeps a good balance in Gumbo Limbo between the weird and the reality…[and] brings a vivid ima gination to the Florida mystery fold."
- Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, September 1999
"… plenty of offbeat characters and subplots to keep the action moving. The story even jumps from Key West to New Orleans, probably the only other suitable environment for this quirky Florida mystery. If you liked [The Mango Opera], be sure to grab this sophomore effort. It is better than the debut, high praise."
- Bookline, August 1999
"Palm trees and murder. It’s an irresistible combination for a mystery writer, and readers. It’s the classic stuff of what film critic Roger Ebert has called “Florida noir”."
- Lakeland Ledger, September, 1999
