This revised edition of the short novel originally published in Australia is specially adapted for readers of all ages with reading difficulties

There is no hell like a man-made one . . .

It is an island that doesn't appear on any maps.

A secret location where classified experiments have been conducted.

Experiments that have gone terribly wrong . . .

When all contact with this mystery island is inexplicably lost,

four crack special-forces units are brought in, their mission being

to land on Hell Island and discover what has happened.

Nothing can prepare them for what they find there.

You could say they've just entered hell.

Only that would be too gentle.
