With Marrow Island, Smith has written a truly great Pacific Northwest novel. She's given us a good dosage of mystery, ecological thriller, and speculative fiction, but defies our expectations of each. Marrow Island as a place is so firmly grounded in the mood and atmosphere of the Northwest that you feel like you've been there before; you could spy it through the fog on your next ferry ride or trip up the coast. Setting is not the only strong point of the book, however; the plot keeps your curiosity simmering right up through the end.
