Whodunnit?: Murder in Mystery Manor | [Anthony Zuiker]

Whodunnit?: Murder in Mystery Manor

Ten excited guests arrive at the Westlake Estate, expecting a lavish retreat. They are the winners of a sweepstakes to "Live Like a Billionaire for a Week." But what was supposed to be a promising escape soon turns into a horrific nightmare. Within hours of arrival, the guests sit down for an extravagant dinner. When they pull their party poppers as instructed, a loud chorus of bangs resounds, followed by earsplitting screams as the guest seated at the head of the table bursts into flames and slumps to the floor.

Publisher's Summary

A grand estate. Ten unsuspecting guests. A diabolical game of life and death.

A companion to the upcoming show Whodunnit? on ABC.

Ten excited guests arrive at the Westlake Estate, expecting a lavish retreat. They are the winners of a sweepstakes to "Live Like a Billionaire for a Week." But what was supposed to be a promising escape soon turns into a horrific nightmare. Within hours of arrival, the guests sit down for an extravagant dinner. When they pull their party poppers as instructed, a loud chorus of bangs resounds, followed by earsplitting screams as the guest seated at the head of the table bursts into flames and slumps to the floor. The others are told they must solve the crime or be the next victim. The killer, their diabolical host, is hiding among the frightened guests. Is the murderer the well-toned trophy wife, the retired deputy sheriff, the stoned college dropout, or perhaps the sweet, homely grandmother? The killer toys with them, inviting the guests to explore the lavish estate, from the stables to the hedge maze, in an effort to uncover the gory details of how the murderer pulled off such a gruesome murder. Alliances are forged carefully and information is shared warily, since none of the remaining guests knows whom to trust. The next to die a hideous death will be the one with the least accurate solution to the latest murder. In the end, only three guests will remain: the winner, the loser, and the killer.

Full of tricky plot twists and over-the-top schemes, Whodunnit? Murder in Mystery Manner is riveting required listening for mystery fans. Listeners are treated to an edge-of-their-seat thriller as they participate in solving the crime. It's Clue meets Ten Little Indians.

Anthony E. Zuiker is the creator and executive producer of the CSI franchise, which includes CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, and CSI: NY. His mystery reality show, Whodunnit?, is his first foray into unscripted television. He lives in Los Angeles with his three children and his wife, Michelle.

Whodunnit is performed by the show's host/butler, accomplished narrator Gildart Jackson.

    "Not worth the "free" price"
    Would you try another book from Anthony Zuiker and/or Gildart Jackson?

    No


    What could Anthony Zuiker have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make it somewhat plausible


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gildart Jackson’s performances?

    No


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

    I enjoyed the narrator's accent ... probably the only thing that kept me listening as long as I did. I gave up after the fourth murder. Just don't care "whodunnit" enough to keep keep listening.

    What did you love best about Free: Whodunnit??

    That it was a murder mystery always asking whodunnit


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story, keep both my boys and I guessing on who the real murder was and when we did find out, not a one was right.


    Which character – as performed by Gildart Jackson – was your favorite?

    The butler, having been forced into the Game unknowingly and then being marked forever after.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    We did listen to it in all one sitting, because the time fit into our travel plans and gave us all something to pause the play and talk about when we made stops.

    "Whodunnit: A Mystery"

    This book was a pleasant read. It tells the story on how Giles came to Rue Manor. It's just like whodunnit.

    "Great way to introduce the new tv series"

    great for being free!! Loved the concept. The reality show is good, except for the personal drama they throw in. liked that it just kept moving without getting to involved with character depth. I think that was the point...
    This book is the reason I watch the reality show. had I not listened to the book, I never would have watched

    "I liked it"
    Would you listen to Free: Whodunnit? again? Why?

    No, I rarely listed or read books twice.


    Would you recommend Free: Whodunnit? to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes I would. For a freebie I thought it was pretty good.


    What about Gildart Jackson’s performance did you like?

    I thought he was a good narrator. He kept my attention.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    A cheesy mystery with little character development but still a decent listen for a freebie.

    "Pretty good short story. Nice for a free selection"

    I enjoyed the book, especially the reader. I would have like a little more detail at the end on why they did the murders, how and why they picked the people they picked. Needed more details in the above area. It was a good book and has some great parts and I didn't know who did it until the end. I will listen t it again.

    "Fun Story, Fun Prep for the show"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure! It's a fun (although gruesome the detail of the murders) whodunnit that you can vividly visualize as you listen.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Anthony Zuiker? Why or why not?

    I am interested in the second one when it comes out.


    What three words best describe Gildart Jackson’s voice?

    Pompous, Engaging, Appropriate


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it was enjoyable...besides, who wants to wait to figure out whodunnit?

    "Wow!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES! I was sucked into this story. I told everyone I know who watches the show to GET THIS BOOK!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Free: Whodunnit??

    Every moment was memorable. From the very beginning. There were multiple "gasping" "OMG" moments with each murder.


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

    This is my first performance of his. Though i watch the show and he is great on that. He was absolutely amazing for Giles. On TV and in the book. He really brought it to life and brought the thrill to the tale.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! Sadly I couldn't.
