The Island by Adrian McKinty – Review

Heather Baxter marries Tom, a widowed doctor with a young son and teenage daughter. They embark on a working holiday deep in the Australian outback but things don’t go well.
Then they discover remote Dutch island, a place far from iPhones and the internet. Normally closed to outsiders, they manage to talk their way aboard the ferry but once there everything begins to go from bad to worse. It becomes a fight for survival.

I have read a lot of books by this author so when the chance came for an ARC I jumped at it. I was not disappointed. The action starts straight away when they are involved in an accident. The pace continues to increase all the way through the story. There are twists and turns aplenty with a few surprises thrown in for good measure. This a great story written we’ll and the pace of the action made me breathless. Definitely, a book to consume rather than just read.

A great summer or anytime read.

My thanks to #NetGalley, #AdrianMcKinty and #OrionBooks for this free ARC in exchange for an honest review.
