Island 731

Jeremy Robinson

St. Martin's Paperbacks

NO EVENT IN HISTORY COULD HAVE PREPARED HIM FOR THIS.

Mark Hawkins, former park ranger and expert tracker, is on board a research vessel on the Pacific. But his work is interrupted when the ship is plagued by a series of strange malfunctions and the crew is battered by a raging storm…

"Jeremy Robinson blends myth, science, and terminal-velocity action like no one else."—Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of Nocturnal

The next morning, the beaten crew awakens to find themselves anchored in the protective cove of a tropical island—and no one knows how they got there. The ship has been sabotaged, two crewmen are dead, and a third is missing. Hawkins spots signs of the missing man onshore and leads a small team to bring him back. But they soon discover evidence of a brutal history left behind by the island’s former occupants: Unit 731, Japan’s ruthless World War II human experimentation program. As more of his colleagues start to disappear, Hawkins begins to realize the horrible truth: That Island 731 was never decommissioned and the person preying on his crewmates may not be a person at all—not anymore…

 

"Robinson, a skilled blender of the thriller and horror genres, has another winner on his hands."—Booklist

“Man overboard!”
Mark Hawkins reacted to the words without thought. He hadn’t even seen who’d fallen and couldn’t identify who had shouted the words. But he heard the confirming splash and saw several crewmembers on the main deck look over the port rail.
At a run, Hawkins leapt up onto the port rail and launched himself over the side. But he wasn’t on the main deck, which was just eight feet above the waterline. He was on the second deck, twenty-five feet up and six feet in from the main deck’s rail. As he

Praise for Island 731

Praise for Jeremy Robinson’s

ISLAND 731

"Robinson puts his distinctive mark on Michael Crichton territory with this terrifying present-day riff on The Island of Dr. Moreau. Action and scientific explanation are appropriately proportioned, making this one of the best Jurassic Park successors."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Take a traditional haunted-house tale and throw in a little Island of Dr. Moreau and a touch of Clash of the Titans and you wind up with this scary and grotesque novel. Robinson, a skilled blender of the thriller and horror genres, has another winner on his hands."—Booklist

"The premise is reminiscent of H.G. Wells’ The Island of Dr. Moreau, but the author adds a World War II back story...vivisection, genetic engineering, Black Ops, animal husbandry, and mayhem. This is the stuff that comic books, video games, and successful genre franchises are made of."—Kirkus Reviews

"A book full of adventure and suspense that shows ‘science’ in a whole new horrific light. This is one creepy tale that will keep you up all night! And it is so well written you will think twice before taking a vacation to any so-called ‘Island Paradise!’"—Suspense Magazine
