A novel of adventure, survival, and psychological suspense with "a surprise ending worthy of Hitchcock" (Publishers Weekly).
Legend in the academic world has it that Dr. Matthew Prendel, an expert sailor, had been shipwrecked years ago. His boat was attacked by pirates. He survived thanks to an incredible stroke of luck while his entire crew perished, but then found himself embroiled in a ferocious fight for survival between two castaways on a desert island. There, too, he was lucky and came out the victor.
But perhaps luck played no part in it. Perhaps something darker was at play, something bigger at stake. The only sure thing is that Matthew Prendel disappeared for five whole years. He has been back in New York now for a while, or so they say. One should never rely entirely on hearsay . . .
A blend of adventure story and noir mystery, The Island of Last Truth is a riveting tale filled with both suspense and incisive psychological observation.
