Subduction by Todd Shimoda
This existential thriller with an intriguing title has a story, characters, and setting that will stay with you long after you've read it. Dr. Endo, a young MD unjustly charged with a patient's death, is banished to a tiny, earthquake-plagued island far off the coast of Japan to take care of the few remaining elderly residents. Determined to remain on their crumbling island and resuscitate their defunct fishing industry, the islanders plot against all intruders. As the earthquakes grow more violent, and the islanders more hostile, Endo and two other outsiders, a seismologist and a filmmaker, become entangled in their own troubled pasts.
