Product Description

Product Description

Mark Hawkins, former park ranger and expert tracker, is out of his element, working on board the Magellan, a research vessel studying the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. But his work is interrupted when, surrounded by thirty miles of refuse, the ship and its high tech systems are plagued by a series of strange malfunctions and the crew is battered by a raging storm.

When the storm fades and the sun rises, the beaten crew awakens to find themselves anchored in the protective cove of a tropical island...and no one knows how they got there. Even worse, the ship has been sabotaged, two crewman are dead and a third is missing. Hawkins spots signs of the missing man on shore and leads a small team to bring him back. But they quickly discover evidence of a brutal history left behind by the Island’s former occupants: Unit 731, Japan’s ruthless World War II human experimentation program. Mass graves and military fortifications dot the island, along with a decades old laboratory housing the remains of hideous experiments.

As crew members start to disappear, Hawkins realizes that they are not alone. In fact, they were brought to this strange and horrible island. The crew is taken one-by-one and while Hawkins fights to save his friends, he learns the horrible truth: Island 731 was never decommissioned and the person taking his crewmates may not be a person at all—not anymore.

Praise for Island 731:

“Robinson puts his distinctive mark on Michael Crichton territory with this terrifying present-day riff on The Island of Dr. Moreau… One of the best Jurassic Park successors.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review

"[Island 731's] premise is reminiscent of H.G. Wells’ The Island of Dr. Moreau, but the author adds a World War II back story...vivisection, genetic engineering, Black Ops, animal husbandry and mayhem. This is the stuff that comic books, video games and successful genre franchises are made of." -- Kirkus

“Take a traditional haunted-house tale and throw in a little Island of Dr. Moreau and a touch of Clash of the Titans, and you wind up with this scary and grotesque novel. Robinson, a skilled blender of the thriller and horror genres, has another winner on his hands.” –Booklist


"A book full of adventure and suspense that shows ‘science’ in a whole new horrific light. This is one creepy tale that will keep you up all night! And it is so well written you will think twice before taking a vacation to any so-called ‘Island Paradise!’" -- Suspense Magazine

Praise for SecondWorld:

“The popcorn novel of the summer has arrived, and Jeremy Robinson delivers an action fest that rivals the best of James Rollins, Clive Cussler and Matthew Reilly… The combination of Mad Max, I Am Legend and Where Eagles Dare provides a fresh take on the end of the world that is riveting from the first page. SecondWorld is a guaranteed one-sitting read that would make a terrific summer movie.” –Associated Press

“Relentless pacing and numerous plot twists drive this compelling stand-alone from Robinson (Threshold)… Thriller fans and apocalyptic fiction aficionados alike will find this audaciously plotted novel enormously satisfying.” –Publishers Weekly

"A brisk thriller with neatly timed action sequences, snappy dialogue and the ultimate sympathetic figure in a badly burned little girl with a fighting spirit... The Nazis are determined to have the last gruesome laugh in this efficient doomsday thriller." -- Kirkus Reviews

“Compellingly written… Gripping, propelled by expertly controlled pacing and lively characters…. Robinson’s punchy prose style will appeal to fans of Matthew Reilly’s fast-paced, bigger-than-life thrillers, but this is in no way a knockoff. It’s a fresh and satisfying thriller that should bring its author plenty of new fans.” --Booklist

4.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable technothriller! 26 April 2013
By Kate TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of technothrillers and, in the absence of the much missed Michael Crichton, I can heartily recommend Jeremy Robinson. Having enjoyed Beneath (Origins Edition) (life is found on Jupiter's moon Europa) and been kept awake in 2012 reading obsessively the most excellent SecondWorld, I couldn't read Island 731 fast enough. I bought it in from the States as I couldn't wait for the UK release. Now, though, the hardback is out in the UK. As with SecondWorld, I gave up eating and sleeping as I read the thriller although, admittedly, I did also have to give up on a fair amount of credulity. Not that that does one much harm now and again.

I was won over from the opening line, really: `Master Chief Petty Officer James Coffman awoke to find his leg being eaten'. Things got quickly even worse for Coffman but I was hooked instantly.

Island 731 is a remote Pacific Island, once caught up in World War II with Japan and now the last place on earth that you want your boat to be marooned. Mark Hawkins, former park ranger and tracker, is aboard the Magellan, a research vessel investigating the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Following a terrible storm, the crew awake to find the ship inexplicably wrecked in the sheltered lagoon of a tropical island and crewmen are missing. When Hawkins heads ashore to recover the crew he stumbles across the remains of horrendous experiments on humans that took place during the 1940s. Further into the thick growth of the island, strange sounds and shadows in the trees alert Hawkins and his team to something threatening and sinister.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down 4 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Island 731 was an interesting and fun story. The 'creepies' are fantastic and definitely leave an impression, long after hearing about them. I don't know how Jeremy Robinson thinks up these things but I'm grateful he does.

5.0 out of 5 stars Island of terrible creatures 27 Jun 2014
By NITSUD!
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Take a journey to an island full of beasties, pray you can run fast enough! This book is a fast read, you can't put it down! Jeremy Robinson delivers again. For added enjoyment, read this in-between Project: Nemesis and Project: Maigo, also by Jeremy Robinson. Otherwise, this book is enjoyable enough on its own. Either way, buy it and have fun!
