'Cyclone is remarkable for its psychological truth, its authentic background, and its writing of the sea. Even the minor characters - Fay's young brother, Tod; Con, hypnotised by glamour; Corcoran, the journalist; Randall, the playboy - are drawn in the round. The town, with its social conflict, its bickering and its bar-room scenes, comes alive, And the story rises to a mighty climax with the storm - a dramatic tale developed with unerring simplicity.'
