Author’s Synopsis | Twenty years have passed since the tragedy that claimed the life of Caitlyn Larrimore. Enough time for the residents of Stillwater Falls to heal. When a new resort is set to open on the island, old wounds are reopened as an unlikely reunion is arranged. Soon, the former camp-mates find themselves cut off from the mainland. As the body count begins to rise, the secrets from that night are finally revealed. What really happened to Caitlyn Larrimore? Is the truth enough to save their lives?


FINAL THOUGHTS | There are two things that stand out about this work above all else.

  1. The Chapter Titles – All of them hint at how someone is going to die during that chapter.
  2. The ease of the read – and that’s a good thing.

What makes The Island a quintessential whodunnit is the fact that we don’t mess around with plot and exposition. From the get-go, we have the true inciting incident, followed by a second chapter that dangles the problem so perfectly. Just when you think you have a grip on where this story’s going, it says, ‘nope’ like a Jordan Peele film.

I cannot wait to binge this one in a single sitting, so keep on the lookout for that completed tag, because once you see it, I’m diving back in!
