Reviews of PANAMA 

"Hiatt's impressive debut offers a new take on...obsession, tempered in the erotic Panama jungle...The building of the Panama Canal, [the lover's] background and even the Wright brothers form a wonderully detailed backdrop that never overpowers the human story."
                                                                                                         -- Kirkus Reviews

"...the political and technological facts add layers to the exciting drama...Both the romance and the questions of social justice will grab [the reader]."
