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.

    "Better than many!"

    New twist on old plot; really good at bringing characters to life; too much repetition for my tastes (necessary for tv show?) I listen or read to just about anything so was not shocked by any of the grislier events but definitely not PG. Guessed ending pretty early on. Would love to see more mysteries on tv so will watch this.

    "Classic whodunit!! Excellent narrating!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Free: Whodunnit? to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely, Gildart Jackson does an excellent jobportraing each character.


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

    I haven't heard any of his other performances, but after Whodunnit?, I will definitely consider listening to them.


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

    No, the formatting of the chapters can make the book a bit boring at times.

    "I would have paid for this"
    What did you love best about Free: Whodunnit??

    I plan to search for this author and purchase more books by him. I really enjoyed trying to figure out who done it. all the evidence was laid out and you learned as the characters in the story learned. I really like this book. sci fi fantasy and mystery books are my entertainment source, Id rather read or listen than watch the mindless madness on TV.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    did not figure it out until the last few chapters


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

    no


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

    the end at when the killer cursed Jiles

    "Whodunnit!!!!"

    Being a fan of the show I was very excited to find this book and better yet find it was free. I greatly enjoyed being able to get lost in Mystery Manor, in trying to solve the murders or anticipate who was next. The book kept me guessing and reminded me very much of the campy movie Clue. I looked forward to getting to listen and had I been able to I would have listened to the entire book in one sitting. If more books are released I plan on reading them.

    "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.

    "Would not have thought"
    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.

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