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.

That it was a murder mystery always asking whodunnit
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.
The butler, having been forced into the Game unknowingly and then being marked forever after.
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.
The story is interesting & I wanted to continue listening but it was a little vivid for my taste.
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
Say something about yourself!
No, I rarely listed or read books twice.
Yes I would. For a freebie I thought it was pretty good.
I thought he was a good narrator. He kept my attention.
A cheesy mystery with little character development but still a decent listen for a freebie.
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.

This was a really enjoyable read, I hope there is more to come from this author.
Sure! It's a fun (although gruesome the detail of the murders) whodunnit that you can vividly visualize as you listen.
I am interested in the second one when it comes out.
Pompous, Engaging, Appropriate
Yes, it was enjoyable...besides, who wants to wait to figure out whodunnit?
YES! I was sucked into this story. I told everyone I know who watches the show to GET THIS BOOK!
Every moment was memorable. From the very beginning. There were multiple "gasping" "OMG" moments with each murder.
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.
Yes! Sadly I couldn't.
While there are things left out that other reviews have pointed out such as: why those people were chosen and so on. The story is logical and does make perfect sense. I think it is important to keep in mind the theme of the book which will follow a new t.v. show and was created so that an audience could simply follow along on the mystery.
Pick it up because the price can't be beat and the story keeps you intrigued.
I love the mystery and the twists that unfold around every corner.
The voice actor was wonderful.
I listened to the book over a 2 day period in only a few sessions. The book was entertaining.
