The Blurb:

During a huge row, Gillian stands up to her abusive boyfriend. The consequences are horrendous and far-reaching.

Terrified, she flees her home, seeking anonymity abroad while coming to terms with the outcome of her actions.

In Portugal, Gillian meets Harry, a yachtsman, needing crew for his Atlantic Ocean-crossing. She applies for the job. Half-way into the journey, after confessing to her crime, Harry offers her refuge on an uninhabited island in the Caribbean which he says he owns.
Confused and depressed, Gillian imagines this is the answer to her problems. She needs time to lie low and consider her options; confront the authorities or live in obscurity? Harry is offering the perfect hiding place…or is he?

When things start going horribly wrong, she asks herself if she is alone on the island. But maybe the biggest question of all is why she gets the gut feeling Harry wants to keep her there at all costs?

What happens when she says … no.


My Review:

Suspense, tension, creepy undertones, and action all rolled into a great thriller.

When Gillian stands up to her abusive boyfriend, tragedy strikes. Unwisely, she runs away… right into yachtsman Harry’s arms. When she confesses to Harry, he offers her refuge on his Caribbean island. And then the nightmare really begins…

Haunting yet relatable, with a tightly wound plot, this is a suspense thriller charting what can happen when you try to run away from your perceived problems. With twists and an ending that had me holding my breath, this is a good yarn for thriller fans.
