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.

    "Enthralling Mystery!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the print version so I wouldn't know! But I love the narrator's voice which I think totally helps make the book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    MY favorite character is of course Giles (Not sure thats how it is spelled, but The Butler!)


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

    Yes it was! It kept me wanting to listen! I keep checking back for there to be more books! I've listened to this and Murder at Mystery Manor!

    "Predictable"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The ending was kinda Predictable. I am starting to think that the Writer Hates Women. In the Show, the Killer was a Woman and so forth and so on.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Very Predictable.


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

    Yes, Almost Identical to the First Whodunnit Book.


    Was Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island worth the listening time?

    Yes, even though it was Predictable. Still a Fun book.


    Any additional comments?

    Believe it or not, I would actually listen to another one if he wrote a Book 3. Just Do something different with the Ending Plot, Like make it out to be Giles and he Finally Snapped, or make it a Guy because he had an actual Tie with the victims other than he is just a psycho that kills a bunch of random Strangers and then willingly gives himself up at the end. Thank You

    "Still free"
    What disappointed you about Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island?

    The first one was a so-so experience, but I figured, meh, why not, it's free. I guess the interest I had built up in the first book just didn't last a repeat. If anything this seemed less mystery and more gore-fest than the last and frankly I had started to wonder if Giles wasn't just a guy with a split personality killing these people. I think because of that any empathy and interest I had built with his character from the last book died.


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

    I really feel that this sort of book is really a one off sort of thing. If he had wanted to continue the trend I think he'd have to bring in some supporting characters that weren't doomed to die or act as place holders as the rest of the "staff" were. I guess in this one I really just needed someone to verify that Giles isn't just a crazy guy. Giles became way too....happy(?) to be going through this. In the first book there's a sense of resignation that this is happening and he's being pulled along, in this one....no.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't drop Mr. Jackson if you want to make another. He's a very good narrator and the only reason I finished listening.

    "WONDERFUL BOOK."

    This one I like very much also. But again I warn anyone to put a book in between, they are very graffic. I would put a book or two in between the first and last. Enjoy the read. I did.

    "You get what you pay for"

    The premise was interesting - taking the point of view of the butler, but the story lacked in depth and soon became merely gory.

    "Surprising!"
    Where does Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    There is no way I can rank this among all the audiobooks I have listened to, there are just too many. What happened to just being able to type my own review rather than being limited to answering questions?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Free: Whodunnit? Murder on Mystery Island?

    The end


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

    I listened to the other WhoDunnit, now if we could only find the middle one!


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

    yes

    "Not As Good"

    This is the second book in the Whodunnit? series. I did a bit of looking around and it seems like it is the last book as of the time of this review. I listened to the audiobook of the first Whodunnit? Murder in Mystery Manor in October of this year. I gave it top stars. 5 out of 5.
    In this second audiobook, Giles the perfect English butler finds himself in yet another evil plot to kill off 8 people in a game of life and death. But this time it is taking place on a small tropical island. Giles is forced by an anonymous killer to assist the contestants in playing the game to save his own life and the lives of the other resort staff members.
    Don't worry there will not be any spoilers here at all.
    In this second book, Giles mentions several time this is the third time he has gone through this situation. Say what?! This is book two. What third time? In book one that was the first time. Did I miss something. I have looked and this IS book TWO! Why would the author write that if there wasn't a third time. I knocked one whole star for that. Totally confusing!
    The narrator was AMAZING and carried the story extremely well. I think I was just not into this one. I know this might seems silly to say but this audiobook seemed darker than the first one. I know there are people dropping dead in every single chapter but still. There was a deep depression throughout this book that the other book did not have.
    The first book seemed like a game. More like the CLUE game board and this one was more or less like a horror story. Not funny at all! And yes there are moments when the author makes a joke or two. This one was not really my cup of tea.
