“O’Connor’s Another Man’s Treasure quickly and quietly captures you and then carries you into a non-stop crescendo of mystery and intrigue.”

"The undercurrent of this entertaining and fun story carries messages about relationships. Almost every character has an issue with a spouse or parent. O'Connor subtly conveys their failure to candidly share their thoughts, feelings, concerns and needs. For some, the consequences are devastating."

“This captivating novel is spotted with humor while its characters struggle between righteousness and temptation, loyalty and betrayal, generosity and greed. It leaves you with many issues to ponder.”
Nita Belles, author of In Our Backyard
“As an FBI agent for 30 years, I found it refreshing to read a violence-free book that still captivated me with mystery and suspense, conflict and tension—all nicely balanced with romance and humor. Another Man’s Treasure has more than a little something for everyone.”

"Jim O'Connor's Another Man's Treasure is a small piece of the great American literary dream. Just about everyone wants to write a book, but O'Connor has done so.

Davis Schneiderman, chair of the English Department, Lake Forest College, and author of DRAIN and BLANK
“Having wandered the wild Atlantic, the lonely jungles of New Guinea, and the haunted treasure grounds of the Caribbean, I was drawn to O'Connor's portrayal of people wandering in the uncharted landscape of the soul.”
