about this item

NO EVENT IN HISTORY COULD HAVE PREPARED HIM FOR THIS.

Mark Hawkins, former park ranger and expert tracker, is on board a research vessel on the Pacific. But his work is interrupted when the ship is plagued by a series of strange malfunctions and the crew is battered by a raging storm...

"Jeremy Robinson blends myth, science, and terminal-velocity action like no one else."-Scott Sigler,New York Times bestselling author of NocturnalThe next morning, the beaten crew awakens to find themselves anchored in the protective cove of a tropical island-and no one knows how they got there. The ship has been sabotaged, two crewmen are dead, and a third is missing. Hawkins spots signs of the missing man onshore and leads a small team to bring him back. But they soon discover evidence of a brutal history left behind by the island's former occupants: Unit 731, Japan's ruthless World War II human experimentation program. As more of his colleagues start to disappear, Hawkins begins to realize the horrible truth: That Island 731 was never decommissioned and the person preying on his crewmates may not be a person at all-not anymore...

"Robinson, a skilled blender of the thriller and horror genres, has another winner on his hands."-Booklist

Feeling out of his element on board a research vessel studying the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, expert tracker Mark Hawkins is trapped on a tropical island with the crew after a mysterious series of malfunctions and uncovers evidence of the island's history as the site of a brutal World War II human experimentation program. 25,000 first printing.
