Hm, good question.  My favourites in the usual way of things are "Fire and 
Hemlock" and "Deep Secret", but neither of those feels right for a desert 
island.  In fact, I'm not sure that any of hers do feel desert island ish. 
Maybe I'd take one of the more recent ones, that I've only read once or 
twice.  Yeah.  I think it'll be "The Pinhoe Egg".

Until the sky falls on our heads...
