Publisher's Summary

TERRIFIED...
It was supposed to be a harmless camping trip. Six wayward teenagers who'd run into trouble with the law, and their court-appointed guardians, Sara and Martin Randhurst. Three nights on a small, deserted island off of Michigan's upper peninsula. A time to bond, to learn, to heal.
Then Martin told a campfire story about the island's history. Of the old civil war prison hidden in there, and the starving confederate soldiers who resorted to cannibalism to stay alive. Everyone thought it was funny. They even laughed when Martin pretended to be dragged off into the woods.
But Martin didn't come back. And neither did Sara when she went in search of him.
Then the laughter stopped.
...TO DEATH
The group soon began to realize that this deserted island wasn't so deserted after all. And perhaps Martin's ridiculous story had more truth to it than anyone thought.
What's the most horrifying thing you can imagine?
This is a hundred times worse...
TRAPPED by Jack Kilborn
It starts where other horror ends
A Word of Warning
This is the long-awaited follow-up to AFRAID, one of the most horrifying books ever written.Originally scheduled to be released in paperback in 2010, the publisher read the first version of the manuscript and refused to release it. The author made extensive changes, rewriting much of the story. The publisher still refused.
This is a disturbing, terrifying book. You may think you're brave enough to handle it. But you're probably not...

I wish this book could be made into a film..

From the offset, the book offers up vibrant characters, oodles of suspense, bloodshed and a fair serving of gore without the need for being too graphic or offensive. With a mad doctor, feral cannibals, sadistic psychotics and enough torture to make you almost imagine the pain; this story is fast paced and often left me frustrated and wanting more each time when I had to take a break. The last few hours of the book are absolutely amazing and the build up towards the end with so many twists and turns was incredible.

Even though I would categorise the thoughts of the authors as being "very disturbed", I thought this story was amazing and by far my best read of 40+ books in the last two years. If only this could be made into a film, the storyline would easily stand on par with the likes of Hostel2 and Saw etc. Brilliant book, read (listen to) it!!

ridiculous rubbish

I purchased this title after reading the reviews and quickly discovered I'd made a huge mistake. The story is ridiculous, almost comical and the writing lazy and fatuous. It just goes to show how much taste can vary from one person to the next (pun unintended). The story sounded promising and I was excited at the prospect of finding a good thriller/horror writer. Oh the disappointment!

The only redeeming feature of this listening experience is the narrator. I would happily buy another audiobook narrated by him.
