Publisher's Summary

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.

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? Murder on Mystery Island is performed by the show's host/butler, accomplished narrator Gildart Jackson.

    Story
    "Gory!"
    What disappointed you about Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island?

    Stereotypical characters, predictable villian, and worst of all extremely violent. Gory and gruesome details. I didn't finish - it was so nasty (I did check to see if the villian was who I thought - no surprise - it was).


    What was most disappointing about Anthony E. Zuiker’s story?

    The disgusting details - not necessary for the story - kept getting worse and worse as the story unfolded.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island?

    All gore.


    Any additional comments?

    A very bad Agatha Christie wannabe.

    "You Get What You Pay For"
    What would have made Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island better?

    Well, it's hard to critique a free audiobook, but I'll give it my best shot. I guess I would have liked some better characterization, less stereotypes, less complex murders and a more realistic portrayal of what someone in those circumstances might feel.


    Has Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, actually, it made we want to seek out other "Murder on a Deserted Island" type of stories. It was the curiosity about who was the killer and why that kept me going until the end even though I wasn't a huge fan of the story.


    What aspect of Gildart Jackson’s performance would you have changed?

    He was good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. As I said above, this is a great genre to work in, and it was a little disappointing that there wasn't more effort to create characters with some depth, some good parts and bad parts, and maybe a killer with a clear motive. Maybe there could have been a morality aspect to it. I mean the workplace is pretty cutthroat.


    Any additional comments?

    Hey, I love a free book so no complaints. Just a little disappointed that it wasn't a better listen.

    "Not even worth the price -- gory and predictable"
    What would have made Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island better?

    I was hoping there was some twist, like Agatha Christie's Ten Little Indians, but instead you just had to see all the victims murdered in gruesome ways, and some of them were pretty likable, so the murderer was pretty obvious about halfway through. The question remains, then, why it took the butler so long to figure it out and kill the villain.

    Story
    "Formulaic and Uninspired"

    It would seem this story was cranked out quickly and with little inspiration. It follows the formula originated in the great Agatha Christie work "And Then There Were None" but offers no flair or originality.

    The characters are two dimensional to put it nicely there are a wide variety of logic and consistency errors. The "Mark Spitz Diving Challenge" pinball game characterized the lack of effort put into developing any believability. (Spitz was a winner of seven Olympic gold medals for swimming not diving)

    This appears to have been a quick knockoff for Audible. I hope Audible will put more effort into future original work. I'm pleased I didn't pay anything for it but, even for free,I think you can do better.

    The performance was quite pleasant. I'd listen to the narrator again.

    "Great Book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I think that this book series is really good, i love the narrator with his rich deep voice and superb english accent. I hope Anthony Zuiker will write somemore books. And i think the people that are haveing a problem with this series was wanting it to be like the tv show and its not so they were disipoanted. I listened to the books first, i was unbyest. Im sorry others did not like it but i hope he defently writes another book, and that its narrated by Gildart.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked how it kept me guessing, some murder mysteries half way thru the book you know who dunnit but this book had me guessing till the end.


    What does Gildart Jackson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Between his sophistication and his english accent he made this book a great listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Please Writer Another Book.

    "One book is enough"

    I read this book by Zuiker first. You really have to suspend belief in this book, but it was quite fun to listen to. I would recommend reading only one of these Murder on Mystery Island books.
