The Paradise Resort is the ultimate in exclusive luxury island resorts, a private haven for only those deemed worthy enough to attend.
Landon Verger is a titan of industry and the founder of Paradise. The resort’s opening weekend should have been a celebration of wealth and excess, but without warning, it has gone silent.
Sam Verger knows his father only too well; the great man casts a long and dark shadow. He also knows that Landon Verger’s enemy list is long and varied, any one of which would love to see his father dead. Sam seeks to employ a professional to investigate the island, and Mac is one such woman.
An ex-military officer, she works dirty jobs and doesn't ask questions if the money's right. With her like-minded team, they travel to Paradise. Mac thought she’d seen everything that death had to offer, but she was wrong. What started out as a simple mission will quickly become the most desperate fight for survival she’s ever faced. There’s only one thing that she’s sure of: not everyone is getting out alive.
This is not the first book of Drabble's that I read - and it certainly will not be the last! The Last Resort is the latest thriller volume to Drabble's works. The character development is fantastic and it made me fall for Mac, who happens to be one kickass woman.
What starts off as a look into a resort of luxury for those chosen, turns into something much more...and worse. Mac, along with her team, are sent to a island to investigate the happenings of the virus that has allowed the undead to walk.
If you're a fan of Drabble's works, or of thrillers and horror - this is definitely a book you'll want to pick up.
