A secret beach.
A holiday of a lifetime.
Wish you were here?
Think again ...
You wake on a beautiful, remote island.
Sparkling blue seas, golden sunsets, barely a footprint in the sand.
Yet this is no ordinary escape.
Next to the wreck of a plane, a stranger paces. Another sharpens a knife, scoring a list of the dead onto a palm tree. Others watch from the shadows of a campfire - all with untold stories, and closely-guarded secrets...
This is no ordinary holiday.
This is no ordinary island.
This is no ordinary beach read.
Gripping, twisty and full of sun-soaked atmosphere, The Castaways will whisk you far away to the island - and never let you go.
