Publisher's Summary

An isolated Welsh island seemed like the perfect escape for a convict on the run, a jilted woman, and a policeman seeking a quiet life. When the surly locals turn to murderous violence the three visitors are forced on the run together, trying to stay one step ahead of their increasingly insane pursuers.
The bad news keeps coming. There are too many to fight. There is no escape from the island. And the worst storm in years has just begun. They can only run and hide as they face a night of horror and madness. If they don't work together then none of them will live to see the light of day.
This tense survival horror novel is a homage to decades of nasty villains, scary predicaments, and bloody books and films.

Don't visit this island

I got a little lost in the story, confusing some of the characters, but I blame that on me and not the story. Once I got back on track I enjoyed it . Throughout the entire story I really enjoyed the narrator's accent. Even when I was lost I just enjoyed listening to him speak.

Fun Horror!

I really enjoyed this story despite the fact that towards the beginning I was a bit confused. I'm glad I hung in there though, because once I was caught up with what was going on, it was a fast-paced, exciting, horror-filled story that kept me surprised. This was true horror genre content - psychological, gruesome and satisfying vengeance all included! I really appreciate the choices that Karl Drinkwater made with this one; the story felt authentic, realistic and the characters believable. Tom Freeman does a lovely job with narration as well, it really helped to bring the story to life. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys horror!

Excellent intelligent horror thriller

I was surprised how much I enjoyed Turner - so much so that I have written my first book review! At first glance, it looks like a trashy horror novel, but I was hooked by the audio sample, and downloaded. I was glad I did.

The plot is intelligent, intriguing and very well written, with a real sense of foreboding and suspense in the opening few chapters, developing suddenly into frantic, shocking excitement, all underscored by the mystery of the island and what is behind all the horrific happenings. At the same time, the pace of the novel varies pleasingly, so I never suffered from shock-horror fatigue!

It's a testament to Karl Drinkwater's writing and Tom Freeman's accomplished storytelling and characterisation, that found I CARED about the main three characters (not always the case in this genre) . Mr Freeman even manages to inject a bit of humour at times - I particularly liked his performance of the evil and more-than-slightly unhinged Lord John!

Thanks for this - an exciting, unsettling and satisfying listen.

Suitably scary

Any additional comments?

This is a very clever story and suitably scary. The concept with the tiny island and its inhabitants, who are frequently cut off from the mainland is a brilliant idea. All the characters are well drawn and believable, even those that are insane come across well. The only downside, for me, was the narrator. Tom Freeman has a lovely, well modulated and genial voice, entirely unsuitable for this genre. I felt like I was listening to a game show host and although after listening to the sample I thought that the juxtaposition of a soothing voice reading a horror story would be a great dichotomy, it ultimately simply didn't work for me. However, Karl Drinkwater has written a great, fast paced and gripping story that's definitely worth a listen.
