The Angry Island

By James Pattinson

When Guy Radford goes to visit an old college friend on the West Indian island of St Marien, he is blissfully unaware of the trouble he is flying into.

Divisions of race and wealth have created such tensions between desperate workers and powerful plantation owners that a violent showdown is inevitable. When Radford unwittingly becomes caught in the crossfire, he finds his own life in danger.

And, as the conflict intensifies, the fact that he has fallen in love adds merely one more complication to an already tricky situation…

James Pattinson was born on December 15, 1915. During World War II, he volunteered for the Royal Artillery in 1939 and was transferred to the maritime army to serve as a gunner on Defensively Equipped Merchant Ships in 1941. After the war, he returned to poultry farming in Norfolk. During his lifetime, he wrote over 100 books before his death on October 18th 2009, at the age of 93.
