    After his wife, Helen, is brazenly abducted before his eyes, Special Agent Pendergast furiously pursues the kidnappers, chasing them across the country and into Mexico.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am not sure who may enjoy it more. It seemed very disconnected.


    Has Two Graves turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no, I just think I need to read the discription better for future purchases.


    How could the performance have been better?

    it was not the performance that was the issue.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    not really


    Any additional comments?

    no

    Ten strangers, recruited by an edgy new reality show and marooned on an abandoned island overrun by wildlife. One dies in a horrible accident. Nine realize they are all past survivors, alive only because they've beaten incredible odds once before. One by one, their hidden secrets are revealed. Eight discover they are trapped. Caught in a game so deadly that the most terrifying experiences of their lives were only its qualifying round, they must now face the greatest danger on the island... each other.

    Would you try another book from Paul Draker and/or Teri Schnaubelt?

    the performance was wonderful, but the storyline was somewhat confusing. It skipped around alot . At the end of the book I felt dissappointment that after 23 hours, it was just a letdown. I expected more from this book.


    What could Paul Draker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I am not sure


    What does Teri Schnaubelt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    nothing, the performance was excellant.


    Could you see New Year Island being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no, I cannot
