Detective Jessica tames arrogant agent Dexter as they follow clues to the island. Youthful, African-American Stony guards Martin, who is almost a centarian. Over seventy-five years separates their ages-yet, the two men start to communicate. Stony has never killed; Martin insists it’s because of his soul.
When Jessica and Dexter arrive to confront the kidnappers, Stony and Martin are gone. They barely get a small seaplane aloft using skills Martin learned during World War II. The take-off, flight, and landing of the seaplane without water, is miraculous!

Rege Schilken's 'The Island Off Stony Point' is a rollicking good time. Save it for vacation on the beach, a long flight or snuggled up at night under the covers. Like most thrillers, the fun begins with an ugly crime that sets the stage for the action that follows. What distinguishes Schilken¿s novel from others in his genre is the fact that he¿s not pitting the bad guys against the good guys but the bad gals against the good gals. Enjoy.
