Shades of Agatha Chrisite’s And Then There Were None permeate this thriller set in the not so distant future. As one of a small group of candidates vying for a position with the ultra creepy and controlling Union of Friendship, Anna Francis and her “teammates” are sequestered on a small island. Anna’s job is to stage her own “death” and then spy on the remaining six candidates to see how they react to her death and the knowledge that one of them must be a killer. When the island is overtaken by a huge storm, the time for games is over and a real life and death struggle commence. taken with all the bizarre and frightening things happening for real in politics these days, this story is even creepier than it would have been a year ago.
