Phoenix Island

Phoenix Island

Written by Michael Seitzman

This is not in the Intelligence series but the pilot mentions that it was "Based on the book Phoenix Island by John Dixon".
A rebellious 16-year-old, Carl Freeman bounced from one foster home to another until his temper coupled with his dislike of bullies lands him in juvie. He is sent to the horrific Phoenix Island detention area. There he will be chosen as a candidate for the Chop Shop - "a secret government lab where Carl is given something he never dreamed of" - something that puts him as the key attraction in the future of combat intelligence.
