Once the weekend is over, Beth goes back
to her job at a yacht club in Miami and strange things start
happening. Keith and his friends reappear and Beth realizes
there is more to them than meets the eye. But are they good

The Island is an

I enjoyed my trip to The Island, and, as always,
look forward to Ms. Grahamís next novel.
