NO EVENT IN HISTORY COULD HAVE PREPARED HIM FOR THIS.

Mark Hawkins, former park ranger and expert tracker, is on board a research vessel on the Pacific. But his work is interrupted when the ship is plagued by a series of strange malfunctions and the crew is battered by a raging storm…

“Jeremy Robinson blends myth, science, and terminal-velocity action like no one else.”-Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Nocturnal

The next morning, the beaten crew awakens to find themselves anchored in the protective cove of a tropical island-and no one knows how they got there. The ship has been sabotaged, two crewmen are dead, and a third is missing. Hawkins spots signs of the missing man onshore and leads a small team to bring him back. But they soon discover evidence of a brutal history left behind by the island’s former occupants: Unit 731, Japan’s ruthless World War II human experimentation program. As more of his colleagues start to disappear, Hawkins begins to realize the horrible truth: That Island 731 was never decommissioned and the person preying on his crewmates may not be a person at all-not anymore…

“Robinson, a skilled blender of the thriller and horror genres, has another winner on his hands.”-Booklist

Editorial Review

A research vessel studying the effects of sea life around the Great Pacific Garbage Patch lands in a storm, and the ship and crew find themselves on a mysterious island. They have no memory of how they were stranded, and evidence of sabotage makes the stituation all the stranger. Mark Hawkins leads the survivors on a trek to find answers, but they start vanishing one by one. It soon becomes apparent that the ship and crew were brought to this island for a reason, and the truth—there are crazed scientists on the island, and you know what horrific stuff they do—could destroy their lives forever. Take a traditional haunted-house tale and throw in a little Island of Dr. Moreau and a touch of Clash of the Titans, and you wind up with this scary and grotesque novel. Robinson, a skilled blender of the thriller and horror genres, has another winner on his hands. --Jeff Ayers --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“Robinson puts his distinctive mark on Michael Crichton territory with this terrifying present-day riff on The Island of Dr. Moreau. Action and scientific explanation are appropriately proportioned, making this one of the best Jurassic Park successors.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)
