On Thursday, May 19th at 7:30pm Warwick's will host Adrian McKinty as he discusses and signs his new book, The Island. Adrian McKinty was born and grew up in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He studied philosophy at Oxford University before moving to Australia and to New York. He is the author of more than a dozen crime novels, including the Dagger and Edgar-award nominated debut Dead I Well May Be, the critically acclaimed Sean Duffy series, and the award-winning standalone thriller The Chain, which was a New York Times and #1 international bestseller. McKinty’s books have been translated into over 30 languages and he has won the Edgar Award, the International Thriller Writers Award, the Ned Kelly Award (3 times), the Anthony Award, the Barry Award, the Macavity Award, and the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award.

In The Island, newly-married Heather Baxter is heading out on a trip to Australia with her doctor husband, Tom, and his two teens, Olivia and Owen. The trip is a dream come true. Heather’s never traveled outside of the US before. And she’s been struggling to connect with her new step-children. But as on any family vacation, little goes as planned - the weather is too hot, the kids soon bored, and the promised koalas nowhere to be seen.

So when a chance encounter with two locals garners an invite to Dutch Island, a private enclave where wildlife thrives, Tom ponies up for the ferry tickets. One hour off the grid; isn’t that the adventure they all need? But Dutch Island is private for a reason. When their visit leads to a horrific accident, Heather must make a decision that changes everything. Soon they are on the run for their lives.

Propulsive, terrifying, and blade-sharp, The Island is the next thrilling adventure from the mastermind behind the award-winning global sensation The Chain, and a family story unlike any you’ve read yet.
