By D. Edward
of people thrown together at the Leeward Hotel on the small island
of St. Barbe’s have a lot in common. Too much. Jon Moresby
lost both parents in a car wreck. Anna Kristina Andersson watched
her fiancé shot to death by rebel soldiers in El Salvador
on the evening news. Judge Marvin Winchester lost his wife in the
tragic crash of Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Now, circumstances
cause all of them to find themselves in the middle of another nightmare--and

and Peter Calluna run the Leeward Estate Hotel. They live on St.
Barbe’s with their daughter, Bobbie, and her dog, Tonto. But,
something else has made its home on the island: a monster nicknamed
“The Guard.” The emergence of the beast, the disappearance
of a couple staying in the hotel, and the finding of a body that
seemingly vanishes herald the beginning of a mystery that begins
to unravel with terrifying consequences. Who is “The Organization”?
And why are the police on the island trying to keep its inhabitants
from leaving? Murder, espionage, and a threat that could put the
entire world at risk unfold before the eyes of the frightened inhabitants
of the Leeward Hotel. A race to find the truth before it’s
too late puts all their lives at risk.
Bradley has written a pulse-pounding thriller that will keep you
on the edge of your seat. The plot is intricate and compelling and
will hold your attention from beginning to end.
