For all his critical acclaim, novelist Max Long, is divorced, going broke, and disillusioned with the world of literature. Having made up his mind to write a by-the-numbers horror bestseller, he cannot believe his luck when an unknown benefactor offers to sponsor the completion of his next novel in the seclusion of the remote Burnt Island. But as Max’s grip on reality slips, it seems that the island itself is the stuff of horror.
