The sun-drenched Caribbean island of Guadeloupe is technically part of France, subject to French law and loyal to the French Republic. But in 1980, the scars of colonialism are still fresh, and ethnic tensions and political unrest seethe just below the surface of everyday life. French-Algerian judge Anne Marie Laveaud relocated to this beautiful Caribbean island confident that she could make it her new home. But her day-to-day life is rife with frustration. Now she is assigned a murder case in which she is sure the chief suspect, an elderly ex-con named Hégésippe Bray, is a political scapegoat. Her superiors are dismissive of her efforts to prove Bray innocent, and to add insult to injury, Bray himself won’t even speak to her because she’s a woman. But she won’t give up, and Anne Marie’s investigations lead her into a complex tangle of injustice, domestic terrorists, broken hearts, and maybe even voodoo.

Quotes & Awards

  • Another Sun evokes an atmospheric Guadeloupe layered by witchcraft, vestiges of French colonialism, and domestic terrorist movements, yet grounded by the heart. An intriguing novel with a unique main character in Judge Anne Marie Laveaud.”

    Cara Black, New York Times bestselling author

  • Another Sun is a distinct, involving, and entertaining addition to the top rank of crime fiction.”

    International Noir Fiction

  • Another Sun is a complex, atmospheric novel, made all the more fascinating by Williams’ painstaking attention to sensory, sociopolitical, and historical detail, and by the author’s obvious passion for the written word.”

    Mystery Scene

  • “Williams delivers a saga of dying French colonialism in 1980 Guadeloupe—a story as convoluted as the racial strains afflicting the island’s diverse, contentious population…Laveaud, despite a strong sense of justice, is buffeted endlessly by the strong winds of change that engulf one mere murder, in this drawn-out tapestry of colonial misrule.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Cassandra Campbell’s narration masterfully plumbs layers of local culture in Williams’s story of injustice on the French island of Guadeloupe…Campbell’s ability to voice the story’s social hierarchy and undercurrents of hostility and fear makes for an irresistible performance. She also handles the variety of island accents well. Williams’s depiction of a tangled judicial system and colonial power struggles is delivered with clarity and beguiling atmosphere.”


  • “Fans of Williams’ other books and readers who enjoy their crime fiction set in exotic locations will welcome Anne Marie with open arms.”

    Library Journal

  • “In Another Sun, Timothy Williams takes us on a tour of an island we think we know something about, but goes deep into the true Guadeloupe as only someone intimately familiar with the place can truly go. Anne Marie Laveaud is a woman of sharp smarts and tenacity, and the storyline offers fresh surprises throughout.”

    Sarah Weinman, editor of Troubled Daughters, Twisted Wives
