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.
