About the Book

Escape from Paradise is a blend of action and suspense ignited by a clash of values that erupts in a battle between two psychologists in Hawaii. Dr. Carter, a psychologist, so strives to transform Oahu into a community of love and equality that, to conceal illegal methods, he resorts to terror and murder. Patients seeking protection from Carter rouse psychologist Dr. Steadman to oppose him. While Steadman seeks to expose Carter and protect his patients, Carter tries to kill Steadman. After skirmishes on streets, beaches, under water, and in jungles, action culminates at a meeting to honor Carter.

"Walter Wild's new novel takes us into a world we seldom see, and he delivers a fast paced thriller with perilous escapes, daring rescues, and a dramatic foot race across the mountains of Oahu. It's a thriller driven by ideas, and those are the best kind, because when you turn the last page, you still have something to think about. I strongly suggest you read it.
