The Lovereading4Kids comment
Science, history and mystery collide in breathtaking fashion in this chilling and spine-tingling conspiracy thriller where cover-ups abound. Inspired by a real island in Scotland used for anthrax testing, this eerie and contemporary thriller will keep readers on the very edge of their seat, in the style of Malcolm Rose's acclaimed Kiss of Death.
Forbidden Island by Malcolm Rose
When Mike and his friends decide to go for a day's cruising around the coast of Scotland, they are surprised to come across a mysterious barren island that doesn't show up on any map or satellite image. Determined to explore it, they make some chilling discoveries: piles of bones, evidence of explosives, and a strange old abandoned building full of scientific equipment - including gas masks. But still none of them quite realizes the trouble they're in until a helicopter flies in and blows up their boat, leaving them stranded...and falling desperately ill.

'a real page-turning story...a splendid and very accessible blend of science, history and mystery.' SecEd Magazine (the voice for secondary education)
