They found paradise.... What would they do to keep it?
In the tradition of Alex Garland's The Beach, a spine-tingling adventure novel about a group of friends whose journey around the world on a yacht turns from a trip to paradise into a chilling nightmare when one of them disappears at sea. Lana and her best friend, Kitty, leave home looking for freedom - and that's exactly what they find when they are invited onto The Blue, a 50-foot yacht making its way from the Philippines to New Zealand. Manned by a young crew of wanderers, The Blue is exactly the escape they are looking for, and the two quickly fall under its spell, spending their days exploring remote islands and their rum-filled nights relaxing on deck beneath the stars. Yet paradise found can just as quickly become lost. Lana and Kitty begin to discover that they aren't the only ones with secrets they'd rather run from than reveal. And when one of their new friends disappears overboard after an argument with the other crew members, the dark secrets that brought each of them aboard start to unravel. Haunting and infused with spectacular detail, the latest novel by Lucy Clarke - whose writing has been hailed as "breathtaking" (Kirkus Reviews) and "exciting and mysterious" (Library Journal) - is a pause-resisting thriller filled with adventure, exotic locales, and high stakes.

Very very high! Scarlett Mack's voice washes over you as beautifully as the water that The Blue sail's across. The characters are tangible. The story is revealed through "THEN" and "NOW" sequences...and you don't have the "whole" picture until the very end!!
Oh if I told you that, it might give away something you shouldn't know until the very end!
I can ALMOST GUARANTEE that you will NOT guess the ending!! And that is why it was so much fun!!
i don't like to listen to anything twice
lana - the main character.
oh my goodness - all the dialects. she is amazing.
denny. because he is complicated, sweet and loving
This book was good but took me some time to really get into it. I couldn't stop listening once I had 3 hours left, I just wanted to know the outcome. The performance was good too and only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because I thought it couldn't have been read a little faster.
The narration of the book was fabulous -- a cast of players with several accents performed by one talented individual.
It was so engaging from beginning to end! I was looking for a great mystery and that's what I received! Enjoy!
