Aren t remote South Pacific islands supposed to be paradise? Perhaps, from a distance, Norfolk Island looks an idyllic, peaceful, beautiful place lush with tall pines. But look closer and that idyllic fa ade is shattered.For all of the 220 years we have known it, Norfolk s story has been one of darkness, pain, rage and horror. Long buried bones and axes hint at the violence before Captain Cook arrived and claimed the place for England. And then the horror truly began. From its earliest days the isolation of life on this extinct volcano took its toll.Robert Macklin, author of the bestselling SAS SNIPER, tells the vivid, bewitching story of how a unique lifestyle and culture evolved amongst the almost two thousand inhabitants. From a brutal penal colony, a refuge for descendants of the Bounty mutineers when they outgrew Pitcairn Island in 1856, to the murder of Janelle Patton in 2002, Norfolk Island is exposed like never before. A place full of shadows and wrongful deaths, its history is a mesmerising tale all the more powerful because it is true.I have to tell you, Satan lives here. pp. 350 illusts (light tanning). First Edition #0119
