For over a century, the New Hope Island vanishing has tantalized the world. How did 150 people disappear from a lonely Hebridean island, leaving no trace and no clues?

He hopes running the story as a rolling exclusive will revive the fortunes of his flagship news-stand title. He hopes to find conclusive answers to questions that have teased a curious world for decades. And he wants his own secret theory triumphantly vindicated.

An Afghan war veteran, sent to secure the island before the experts arrive, witnesses a nightmare far beyond battle trauma. And as expedition members gather, they discover to their gruesome cost that there are some mysteries far safer left unsolved...

Entertaining, well written
The fact that the story develops very quickly
Good pace, use of voice, excellent narration.
Gripping tale of mystery and suspense
I really not only enjoyed this story but also how well it was read. The narrator managed to propel you along in a well paced and sublet way. Found he engaged with my listening, creating along with the author an exciting, gripping book that I couldn't wait to get back to continue. I have been experiencing some disappointment in the choices I have made recently so I was delighted to discover this book and add it to my list of an enjoyable read.
