Welcome to The Island.

Where your worst fears are about to come true…

It was supposed to be the perfect holiday: a week-long trip for six teenage friends on a remote tropical island.

But when their guide dies of a stroke leaving them stranded, the trip of a lifetime turns into a nightmare.

Because someone on the island knows each of the group’s worst fears. And one by one, they’re becoming a reality.

Seven days in paradise. A deadly secret.

Who will make it off the island alive?

ItsMeSaz ,

I’m a fan but......

I’ve read all of CL Taylor’s books. This one isn’t bad but I can’t put my finger on why it didn’t always hold my attention. I feel things are becoming a little formulaic. A lot of authors seem to be so similar at the moment.
