Publisher's Summary

Dead Man's Island is the first installment of the Henrie O Mystery series.

Chase Prescott, media magnate, is nearly killed by a box of cyanide candy. Fearing for his life, he calls his former lover, retired reporter Henrietta O'Dwyer Collins. His request is simple: He'll assemble all the suspects if she will kindly point out the would-be murderer.

On Chase's private island off the South Carolina coast, Henrie O meets the players in this deadly drama: Prescott's unstable young wife, his sullen stepson, and his toady of a secretary. The field of suspects is wide, and Henrie O has her work cut out for her. As she unearths a will and new evidence, a killer hurricane sweeps up from Cuba, threatening to maroon them. But in this luxurious vacation spot, the storm's fury is less dangerous than the murderous greed of one of Prescott's guests.

    "Intriging"

    The 1st of the Henrie O series. This series was started when the Death on Demand had about 8 titles. It has some flaws, so it's really about 4.5. Henrie O's summarizes the suspects too often. The wrap up is not as clean as it could have been. Still, the solution is imaginative and just flat fire cracker good.

    Story
    "A book maybe more for a woman."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The over all story was ok, the performance was good. Personally the story fell short. One of those female trying to be a male type story. The story starts off slow but gets better from middle to end. I suppose if you had nothing to do it would be an ok listen (not an insult or slam just a so so listen to me.)


    If you’ve listened to books by Carolyn G. Hart before, how does this one compare?

    First story I've listen to so nothing to compare it with from this author. I might try another and see if other stories are similar.


    Have you listened to any of Kate Reading’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Honestly I don't know if I've hear her before or not. Performance was fine.


    Could you see Dead Man's Island being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe some type of B flick with unknowns getting a start.


    Any additional comments?

    I like mysteries, detective, newspaper type of stories but this one was not for me.
