They left him for dead.

They should have made sure.

Nick Mitchell thought he was having a good year.

His company, Mitchell Cole, is more successful than ever, and he and his wife couldn't be happier. As a way to thank his hard working staff he organises a trip for the entire company to Mahé, the largest island in the Seychelles. His wife is more than happy to accompany him.

But on a cruise in the islands, the boat is boarded by men with guns, and Nick Mitchell is stabbed and thrown overboard, along with a mysterious seventeen year old girl, a stowaway. By luck, he and the girl manage to swim to a small deserted island, but even though they both recover from their injuries, they soon find that life on the island is hard, and any chance of being rescued is slim.

Nick has no idea what has happened to his wife and the staff of his company. He fears the worst.

But because of a surprising piece of information from the girl, Nick begins to understand that the attack on the boat wasn't random. It was organised. And in order to stop those who conspired to have him killed, he must somehow get off the island.

From the blistering tropics of the Seychelles to the chilly streets of Bristol, England, Nick Mitchell must discover why he was left for dead, and who was responsible for The Betrayal.

Then, and only then, can he make them pay for what they did to him.

An epic tale of love, hate, death and revenge from the author of Tattoo and The Bristol Savages.

Praise for J.G. Alva's Books
