Discovered after more than 40 years, a vintage action-adventure novel set on Domino Island – a Caribbean paradise toppling under murder, corruption and organised crime…
‘Like a dream come true – an undiscovered Desmond Bagley novel … and it’s a great one!’ LEE CHILD
Bill Kemp, an ex-serviceman working in London as an insurance investigator, is sent to the Caribbean to verify a life insurance claim that will make property magnate David Salton’s young widow a very rich lady.
As Kemp begins to discover that Salton’s political ambitions had made him a lot of enemies, and that his friends are reluctant to reveal themselves, local tensions around the forthcoming elections spill over into protest and violence on the streets – and murder.
Is this all a deliberate smokescreen for an altogether more ambitious plot? And who is the enemy in their midst? As events begin to spiral out of Kemp’s control, even his army training seems feeble in the face of such a determined foe.
Discovered after more than forty years, Domino Island is a vintage tour de force by one of the world’s most successful thriller writers.

About the Author
Desmond Bagley was a multi-million-copy selling author of 16 adventure thrillers, all still in print. Moving to South Africa after WW2, his transition from unskilled printer’s apprentice, aircraft engineer, mine worker, nightclub photographer and radio scriptwriter to one of the world’s most respected thriller writers is legendary, described by The Times as a ‘craftsmanlike thriller novelist’. Returning to the UK in the 1960s, he lived with his wife Joan in Devon and then on Guernsey, where a blue plaque was unveiled in his honour in 2018.
