Propulsive, terrifying, and blade-sharp, The Island is the next thrilling adventure from the mastermind behind the award-winning global sensation The Chain, and a family story unlike any you've read yet.

You should not have come to the island.

You should not have been speeding.

You should not have tried to hide the body.

You should not have told your children that you could keep them safe.

No one can run forever . . .

'a tense, pacy page-turner' The Guardian

'Sure to please readers who love pacy, suspenseful survivalist adventures' Weekend Australia

'The Island certainly gets the blood pumping and the pages turning as it races to its dramatic conclusion' Canberra Weekly

'The tension is palpable. The plot is twisted and claustrophobic. McKinty snatches you early and doesn't let you escape until the very last page' Good Reading
