The Mysterious Island (French: L'Île mystérieuse) is a novel by Jules Verne, published in The original edition, published by Hetzel, contains a number of illustrations by Jules Férat. The novel is a crossover sequel to Verne's famous Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas () and In Search of the Castaways (), though its themes are vastly different from those : Jules Verne. The book itself was probably inspired by the experiences of Alexander Selkirk, a Scotsman who was stranded on a Pacific island for more than four years, 24 fewer years than this story’s : Abby Nolan. Mystery authors who are found on the Cozy Mystery Site and who feature Hawaii locations in their books: Donald Bain & “Jessica Fletcher”: Murder, She Wrote Mystery Series – Aloha Betrayed (Maui) JoAnn Bassett: Island of Aloha Mystery Series. K.K. Beck: Iris Cooper Mystery Series – Peril Under the Palms (Honolulu). The book is the author’s first English-language work; all his previous books were written in Gaelic. Campbell’s familiarity with Gaelic culture and with the landscapes that characterize the islands of the North Atlantic Ocean and adjoining seas shines through brilliantly in Invisible Islands.
