The events in this book are based around five extremely rich, and spoilt women who travel with their husbands on a business trip to a fictitious tropical island. Whilst on the island the women witness their husbands being murdered by terrorists. The women flee to the jungle, quickly learning the art of survival. It's obvious that a tremendous amount of research went into writing this book, giving the reader a vivid insight to the women's adventure and difficulties encountered. It contains eye opening and sometimes grisly details and is definitely a good read, a book I needed to get to the end of ... to escape.
