Synopsis

THE EXPLOSIVE NEW NOVEL FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR - IF YOU LIKED AND THEN THERE WERE NONE, THE ABC MURDERS, AND NORDIC NOIR, YOU'LL LOVE THIS . . .



'Dark, chilling and utterly gripping, The Island is Nordic noir at its best, and is destined to become a classic of the genre. I couldn't put it down' Shari Lapena, bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

_____________



Four friends visit the island.



But only three return . . .



Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdottir is sent to the isolated island of Ellidaey to investigate and soon finds haunting similarities with a previous case - a young woman found murdered ten years ago in the equally desolate Westfjords.



Is there a patient killer stalking these barren outposts?



As Hulda navigates a sinister game constructed of smoke and mirrors she is convinced that no one is telling the truth, including those closest to her.



But who will crack first? And what secrets is the island hiding?



Haunting, suspenseful and as chilling as an Icelandic winter, The Island follows one woman's journey to find the truth hidden in the darkest shadows, and shine a light on her own dark past.

'[Hulda Hermannsdottir is] an excellent addition to the growing band of top-class women detectives' The Times
