Writer Slater Watts accepts a mission to go to lawless, wild Forbidden Island off the Georgia-South Carolina coast to profile a voodoo priest who rules the island like a god. A haunted man, Watts sees the assignment as the last chance to break his dying daughter’s five-year coma. On his way to the island Watts meets Tyler Hill, a woman who believes her runaway daughter lives on Forbidden Island. Hill convinces Watts to take her to the island, and her mission supplants his, threatening his last chance to save his daughter. Watts and Hill make a discovery that threatens everything and redemption or destruction for all hangs in the balance. Love, dark secrets, carnage, unrivaled beauty, and a do-or-die mission await readers of Forbidden Island whose phosphorescent sea, majestic dunes, green marshes, and star-filled heavens will long haunt them.
