Overview

Lord of the Flies comes to Club Med in the year's most exciting and original thriller.

Charles Spencer is a fifty-five year old college professor, going on vacation with his wife and their two almost-grown children to the sunny Caribbean isle of St. Bart?s.

But when they land, Charles and his family find only chaos. Rumors circulate of an attack on the United States. Communications are down. People are panicked beyond comprehension. It is in this madness that Charles uses his intellect and articulate nature to bring the locals and tourists together, and maintain a semblance of order and society in the face of disaster.

But humanity is not as civilized as Charles believes. Distrust, animosity, and prejudice splinter the survivors into factions who battle over supplies, technology, and control. And even as Charles confronts those who would doom them all, a greater threat is on the horizon. A threat that will force them all to fight not only for their lives?but for the future of their world.

Professor Charles and his wife Vanessa Spencer, accompanied by their two children James and Chloe, are flying down to the Caribbean island of St. Bart's. Meeting them there is Charles' brother Dan and his lover. The brothers are looking for their octogenarian father who is going pirate hunting with his friend Luc Vacher. At the isle's airport, Dan informs his sibling that Europe and America were nuked and all communications are shut down. For at least the moment, the people on the island are safe because the radioactive winds are blowing away from St. Bart's. Dan takes charge stealing guns from Vacher's boat and turning employees into a private army to protect them and their food and water supply. They make plans to go to inland to find more water and Dan kills any intruders. When Dan can no longer lead, Charles takes charge. As he toughens up, he decides who will live and who will escape from the isle as the winds have turned, threatening the air they breathe just when a hurricane is also coming. THE FALL OF EDEN takes a close look at what happens when civilization crumbles as survival of the fittest rules in a lawless isolated situation. This is a dark grim thriller as people must make horrific decisions that they would never had had to face when governments thrived. With a philosophical underpinning of what makes a human when the clothing of civilization is torn asunder, fans will enjoy this fine tale mindful of Hitchcock's Lifeboat but On the Beach rather than at sea. Fans will enjoy this mesmerizing thriller. Harriet Klausner
