Books and Other Publications – The Isle of the Rat


The Isle of the Rat, a novella, was published in hard copy in October 1994. It was the second of Sloan’s books to be published by Hong Kong Horrors. It was well received and is considered by some as his best work.


The year is 1908, and three ornithologists visit a remote island in the New Territories of Hong Kong. Two of them are hideously killed during the night. The survivor, and the primary suspect, appears to be out of his mind.

The Hong Kong Water Police, led by William Stratton, Assistant Superintendent of Police, investigate. What they uncover is an unbelievable tale of murder and revenge. The only clue Stratton has to go on is that everything points back to something that happened, years ago, on The Isle of the Rat.
