Book 74: Phoenix Island

Phoenix Island, by John Dixon

One has to admire Carl Freeman in a way, though he has bad judgement and no self-control. A champion boxer, he just can't stand by while someone is being bullied. A judge sees his potential and sends him to Phoenix Island instead of jail.

There the book goes south. Phoenix Island is your typical secret military training camp in a jungle full of lethal creatures on an island in a shark-infested sea.

There's the usual fight with the big bad, but not a typical ending, and that almost redeemed the book.
