Seeking to contact humanity's lost tribe....
On the precipice of a cliff, contemplating suicide, dishonorably discharged US Army Ranger Rowan Baer is invited to provide security to a research team visiting the most dangerous island in the world - North Sentinel Island in the Sea of Bengal. Seeking redemption, he accepts.
Living among Amazon rainforest tribes, eccentric Israeli anthropologist Talia Mayer is recruited to study the island's elusive inhabitants - the Sentinelese - who have resided on the tropical island since the dawn of mankind. Seeing the chance of a lifetime, she joins the team.
On the run from his past, Palestinian linguist Mahdi Barakat is given little choice: join the expedition and make contact with the Sentinelese, or be left to face the men tracking him down. Afraid for his life, he finds safe harbor halfway around the world.
As part of an expedition funded by the Indian government and supported by a local resort millionaire, the team struggles to make contact with the Sentinelese, a tribal people renowned for their violence, strange behavior, and mysterious ways. But when the expedition's yacht strikes a reef, and sinks, the team finds themselves stranded on an island few people have ever set foot on and survived, an island that they quickly discover is home to far more than primitive tribal people.
...They uncover the very source of evil.

A hidden gem
A whirlwind of a book with intense descriptions and exciting encounters - i took one star off as i found it a little repetitive in parts but make no mistake this is a great read!
The narrator was great and i'm familiar with his work on the Jon Reznick series - Kafer has the ability to bring characters to life.
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

At first I thought I just didn't enjoy the authors writing style but after researching realized that I have listened to a handful of his books in the past which I did enjoy, perhaps this is just outside my wheelhouse, but I do listen to a wide range of genres. Writing was repetitive and got to a point that I could predict the next sentence almost word for word. The narrator, in my opinion, has a good voice for it but his reading cadence was often distracting, seemed to not emphasize properly, and had a bad habit of down-speaking the end of every sentence which I could not un-hear once it was noticed.

Dolphin calls drizzled in terror fuel!
This book was great. The characters were all fleshed out well and though the reasons for them being together were kind of basic, the elementary quality of the plot stopped there. The island and its inhabitants were quality and they were terrifying. The twists and attempts at explanation, the preview of the end, the end, and the idea that there could be more intrigue outside of the boundaries of the book made me want more. The idea that there could be an island or a tribe of people like this is the stuff of nightmares. I can not remember reading or listening to a book quite like this before. And the writing and narration were top notch. Great job guys.
Dolphin calls drizzled in terror fuel indeed!
