Struggling writer Max Long arrives on Burnt Island to work on his next novel. There he encounters bestselling author James Fairfax, whom Max suspects of not being the real author of the book that has made his fortune. Furthermore, Fairfax's wife has gone missing. In a desperate bid for success, Max decides to compromise his talent by writing a horror bestseller. Recently divorced and increasingly mentally unstable, he witnesses disturbing visions that take the form of the horror he is attempting to write. Is Max losing his mind - or his soul? What is the truth about Fairfax? And what is the secret of Burnt Island? An ironic satire on literary ambition, Alice Thompson's sixth novel soon turns into something much darker. Alice Thompson's previous books include: "Justine" (Canongate, 1996), "Pandora's Box" (Little, Brown, 1998), "Pharos" (Virago, 2002), and T"he Existential Detective" (Two Ravens Press, 2010). Thompson's writing has been shortlisted and won many awards over the years, including the prestigious James Tait Memorial Prize, which she won jointly with Graham Swift.
