Pre-Christmas Promotion #5: Phoenix Island, by John Dixon

The official “Pre-Christmas Writer’s Promotion” for 2014 is now underway. Working with a group of horror writers, every day until Christmas we'll post information on a fellow writer's novel currently for sale, to give you some ideas for some interesting stocking-stuffers.

Phoenix Island - John Dixon

The dark thriller Phoenix Island, which F. Paul Wilson called “Lord of the Flies meets Wolverine and Cool Hand Luke,” was the inspiration for the CBS TV series Intelligence.

When sixteen-year-old boxing champ Carl Freeman’s defense of a helpless stranger lands him in real trouble – a two-year sentence at an isolated boot camp for orphans – he’s determined to tough it out, earn a clean record, and get on with his life. 

Then kids start to die.

Realizing Phoenix Island is actually a Spartan-style mercenary organization turning “throwaway kids” into bloodthirsty super soldiers, Carl risks everything to save his friends and stop a madman bent on global destruction.
