本來只是尋常家庭度假, 一場可怕的事故改變了一切。



Heather Baxter從鄉村小鎮搬到西雅圖後,嫁給了喪偶並扶養年幼兒子和一名十幾歲女兒的醫生Tom。海外工作度假似乎是讓新家庭團聚的完美方式,但是一旦他們深入澳大利亞內陸,時差和疲憊的孩子們就會對他們的新媽媽失去興趣。


當他們發現遙遠禁止外來遊客進入的荷蘭島,一家人冒險上了渡輪,遠離iPhone 和Instagram。但是,一旦他們踏上這個由當地家族組成的嚴密管理的島嶼,一切都感覺不對勁。然後,一個令人震驚的事故將Baxter夫婦從一個令人不安的局面推向了一個絕對的惡夢。


當Heather和孩子們與Tom 分開後,他們被迫獨自逃跑,現在要靠Heather拯救自己和孩子們了,儘管他們不信任她,嚴酷的灌木叢充滿了危險,當地人欲置她於死地。

Heather 的一生都被低估了,但她知道只有她能把家人帶回家,成為孩子們迫切需要的母親,即使這意味著做不可思議的事,讓他們都活著。




作者Adrian McKinty是北愛爾蘭的犯罪,神秘小說和青年小說作家,以其2020年獲獎的驚悚小說《The Chain》獲得愛倫坡小說最佳平裝小說原創獎



"Unrelenting suspense. It reminded me a little of Jaws."―Stephen King

“This summer’s major literary thrill ride…. Adrian McKinty is a master.”―USA Today

"One of this summer's best standalone thrillers."
 ―The Boston Globe

"Thriller fans, think nothing can shock you anymore? Check out The Island. It’s an adrenaline rush from beginning to end."―Reader's Digest

"A tense, adrenaline-fueled thriller."―Time Magazine

“The locals aren’t always friendly in vacation hot spots, but on the closed-to-the-public island Tom sneaks his family in to for fun, they’re out to kill. Maybe Disney World next time?”

"What a shock it was to discover how deeply invested I became in the fate of the characters of The Island, a propulsive, insane story, about an all-out struggle for survival between an Australian family and a group of American interlopers. . . . Heather, who starts as a clueless young bride who expects her older husband to take care of her and has no love for his children, becomes not just a Charlize Theron-worthy badass but also a great stepmother who helps two damaged kids come into their own.”
 ―The New York Times Book Review

"Deliverance meets The Road Warrior in this harrowing survival thriller . . . McKinty is a master of suspense."―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Expertly choreographed and breathlessly exciting . . . both the peril and the family are like no other. The Chain was McKinty’s breakthrough novel and this one could be every bit as big.”―Booklist (starred review)

“Wow, this book left me breathless and on the edge of my seat from the very first page—this is thriller writing of a high order. Gripping and unpredictable, prepare to be hooked and pumped full of adrenaline as McKinty deftly weaves a compulsively readable plot with characters that you are rooting for. No one does high- stakes tension like McKinty. Put The Island at the top of your TBR—you won’t regret it.”
 ―Sarah Pearse, New York Times bestselling author of The Sanatorium

“Heart-stoppingly tense and unpredictable, The Island twists a family vacation to a nightmarish breaking point. Adrian McKinty has written another irresistible and pulse-pounding thriller about the surprising places evil hides and just how far we’ll go for those we love.” 
 ―Karin Slaughter, New York Times bestselling author of Pieces of Her

"The action is frenetic and relentless . . . entirely satisfying if you’re looking for a reliable nightmare or two.”―Toronto Star
