Publisher's Summary

The murder of an unloved media magnate maroons the crime-solving Darlings on a remote island with a killer in the latest Death on Demand delight from the incomparable Carolyn Hart.

Annie Darling is thrilled at the golden opportunity to visit Golden Silk, the luxurious private island estate of wealthy Jeremiah Addison. She leaves her Death on Demand bookstore in the capable hands of her employees and sets sail from Broward's Rock with her hubby, Max.

Unfortunately, Addison himself won't be there to greet them, since he is, at present, quite dead. After tampering with evidence that suggests the widely despised curmudgeon's death was no accident, Addison's sister-in-law, Britt Barlow, is inviting back everyone who was in attendance during the victim's last weekend, as well as locally known sleuth Max Darling, whom Britt has hired to uncover the killer. And, of course, Annie wouldn't miss this party for the world!

There is certainly no lack of suspects among the guests gathered on Golden Silk. Each had a substantial motive for wanting to do in their late host, from disinherited sons to the cuckolded husband of an adulterous politician to a jilted girlfriend who dreamed of being the next Mrs. A. to a scandal-mongering TV investigative reporter with a talent for character assassination and, quite possibly, blackmail.

But the party is well and truly pooped when a mysterious houseman vanishes, along with the boats that are the only escape off Addison's island. Suddenly Annie and Max, who are getting too close to a solution for comfort, are up a creek without a canoe, stuck on a rock in the middle of nowhere, and stalked by a crafty murderer who hides fiendish bloodlust behind an innocent smile.

    "What a waste of a credit"
    Would you try another book from Carolyn Hart and/or Kate Reading?

    I love Kate Reading, she is an exceptional narrator, this is the 1st time I listened to Carolyn Hart, I would not listen to another.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I am listening to a book by EK Blair, which is the 1st time, I think it is definitely a 4 star at this point.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Reading didn't have anything to do with this book, it was a horrible story line and poorly written.


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

    NONE


    Any additional comments?

    Give me my credit back please!

    "Narrator might not have been the best choice"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Death of the Party to be better than the print version?

    The audio is great for trips to and from work... and it brings the story more to life


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The use of different voices was pretty good but over all the narrator's voice got on my nerves a little bit
