Ten excited co-workers arrive at the beautiful Avondale Resort on a remote island in the middle of the Caribbean, having been told that they are being rewarded for their hard work and productivity. But their relaxing tropical getaway soon turns into a murderous nightmare.
After an extravagant first night dinner, the guests retire to their lavish suites only to be awakened by an ear-splitting bang. They rush to the smoking parlor to find Jordan, the company’s intern, dead - a massive hole in his chest. Giles, the consummate English butler who seems to be in charge, announces that they must solve the crime or be the next victim.
The killer, who has booby-trapped the island and cut off phone and Internet connections, is hiding among them. Is it the HR representative with a penchant for Bloody Marys, the twenty-two-year-old claims processor with the purity ring, or perhaps the head chef of the company cafeteria? The killer plays with their minds, inviting them to explore the beautiful resort, from the infinity pool with the high dive to the white sand beach complete with jet skis and snorkel gear.

I have been enjoying listening to books since the late 90's and reading them the old fashioned way since my parents taught me!
I tried listening to this story several times but just could not get into it. The reader wasn't monotone, so that wasn't the issue. I usually enjoy mysteries and police procedurals. Perhaps because these were novices being picked off in creatively disgusting ways, I didn't get my "justice" fix. Could just be me!
Suzie - KyBunnies (Bunny's Review)
Earlier this year I started listening to audio books while I work. Just another way for me to get in more books to read. I was tired of listening to the radio each day and wanted some type of background noise. A friend and author recommend I start listening to audio book. I told her that I did not think I could get involved in the book as much as I did when reading. She kept pushing me to just try. Well I tried it and I have to state that I love it. I quickly listened to most anything I could find and found that my local library carried so many audio books. If you have not tried audio books I highly suggest you give them a try. You just might be surprised at how great they really are.
I love the start of this book. The story took me back to Fantasy Island staring Ricardo Montalban and Hervé Villechaize, a show I loved to watch. A mystery island that will keep the guest entertained while they grow stronger as they face challenges.
The narrator Gildart Jackson was a joy to listen to. His voice kept me enthralled in the story. The performance was great. The overall story was entertaining. It allowed me to visualized each character and the narrator helped kept each person separate in my mind.
For a mystery audio book the bunnies and I recommend to any who enjoy mystery.
The bunnies and I give this book Bunny4_thumb.jpg carrots.
This was an excellent whodunnit, that while occasionally graphic, was one that my 14 year old daughter was able to listen to. It made for a great road trip guessing game for us.
You are never quite sure who the murderer is - the end is exciting.
A great road trip book. Short enough to listen to in one day, and you won't want to stop once you get started.
I listened to the first book and I loved it. I started the second and they were talking about the TV show so I watched it and loved it. So I listened to this book and I loved it. I highly recommend the whodunnit series to anyone that likes clue types books and TV show.
The story was interesting and it kept me going but honestly I had a hard time paying attention to the readers voice. Many times I have to skip back and wonder what had happened
When one talks about movies, it's not uncommon to hear that the sequel is never as good as the first, but that's certainly not the case with this book! My expectations for this book were once again exceeded, and I simply cannot wait to see (or hear, in this case) what happens next! Gildart Jackson was certainly the right person to have narrated both books, and I certainly hope it stays that way for the books yet to come! Bravo to both Mr. Zuiker and Mr. Jackson!
