I have seen so often for myself the near tragedies than can occur through stupidity, selfishness and misunderstanding.

This book is painful reading but it had to be written. I was deeply disturbed by it, but the disturbance was, thanks to Polly Hopes skills, also a keen literary pleasure.ANTHONY BURGESSThis is an urgently contemporary novel of horror and the unleashed forces of an alien spirit ‘Polly Hope writes beautifully!’NEW YORK TIMESHERE (away from it all)One summer’s day on a Mediterranean island overrun with tourists, all communication with the outside world suddenly ceases.

At first, bemused locals and foreign residents work together, but the banks quickly run out of cash and the restaurants stop taking credit.For the unnamed narrator and her family it’s an inconvenience, but when the material goods run out they need something else to barter with. As the rules of civility become ever more strained, the islanders start to exact horrific revenge. Events escalate, sides are drawn up, old-time religion returns and the island slides into terrifying acts of rebellion and anarchy…This beautifully written thriller plays like an adult ‘Lord of the Flies’, and was described by Time Out as ‘stunning’ and ‘superb’ on its original publication.

Now it is back to mesmerise and haunt a new generation of readers with a message more timely than ever before.CHRISTOPHER FOWLER
