Story: The Island

The Island is now available in paperback.

img_1298For those who prefer the feel (and smell) of physical books, your wait for The Island in paperback is over. It is now available for purchase at Amazon.

 

Agent Sherard Parker never expected to get caught.

His first reconnaissance mission with the DEA was supposed to be simple: infiltrate a small South Pacific island and gather intelligence about its involvement in the international drug trade.

But when Parker stumbles upon a hidden airliner reportedly shot down weeks earlier—an act of terrorism that sparked a war—he realizes the island is more than just home to a major drug operation, it’s also part of a conspiracy so evil it could lead to World War III.

After being captured, Parker is forced to abandon his original mission for a far more important one: escape from the island and return to his family.

Can Parker lead an eclectic band of prisoners in a daring life-or-death escape from their tropical prison, or will those in charge of protecting the island prevail, keeping its dark secrets forever?

Seeking your opinion.

Thanks in advance.

SYNOPSIS 1:

It was supposed to be a simple mission.

When three DEA agents infiltrate a South Pacific island to gather intel about its involvement in the international drug trade, the mission goes horribly wrong.

Sherard Parker is the only survivor of the trio and, after his capture, is made part of the island’s labor force where he learns who’s really behind the drug operation. But nothing prepared Parker for why a commercial airliner—that was allegedly shot down weeks earlier by terrorists—is being hidden in a hangar on the island.

Parker’s new mission is to escape the island and return to his family, but can he lead an eclectic band of prisoners in a daring life-or-death escape from their tropical prison, or will those in charge of protecting the island prevail, keeping its dark secrets forever?
