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.

    "Awesome Book!"

    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!

    "A story to fall in love with"

    I absolutely love this book and the TV series that went with it that only lasted 1 season. the book keeps me on my feet every time and I've lost count on how many times I've read it I would suggest it to anyone who loves a good mystery and crime style book.

    "Didn't think I would like this as much as I did."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Whodunnit?: Murder on Mystery Island to be better than the print version?

    I'm not sure if these are based on the tv show or if the tv show is based on this. I've not seen the show but I enjoyed the books.

    "this was a great murder mystery great narrator"

    this was really good and the narrator deserves a good majority of the credit. this is one of those books that would have been difficult to follow with all the characters on paper but audiowise it was a pleasure. I cant believe who dun it! although I had my suspicions!

    "Great fun; Unsatisfactory conclusion"

    I love murder mysteries and this book was perfectly aligned with my taste. But more than anything else, the "Why?" of the murders is most important to me and this book failed to answer the question in even it's most basic form.

    "Not as good as the last one"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Basically yes, love mysteries but I had to keep going back to see what I missed.


    Would you recommend Whodunnit?: Murder on Mystery Island to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not sure. Maybe if someone didn't have something else to listen to it would be ok. It just seemed like the author wanted to find the most gory, gruesome methods of murder possible. It actually took away from whatever the story was supposed to be.


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

    Great speaking voice. Definitely plays the parts well. That English butler thing was going strong.


    Did Whodunnit?: Murder on Mystery Island inspire you to do anything?

    No.

    "Biiiiiiiiiggggg baadabooom!"
    What did you love best about Whodunnit?: Murder on Mystery Island?

    The elaborate murders. I wasn't just someone walking up and shooting someone in the face because their long lost cousin died to food poisoning from a poorly cut puffer fish that the sushi chef cut up, it was something so elaborate and plausible that you felt guilty for wanting to see what the next murder would be like


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The butler, because I can picture the Butler from Clue being the one playing this role.


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

    I have not, but I'd be willing to check out other books he narrates. I'd go with something a bit of laughter thrown in if he reads such a book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Extreme, no, but guilt. Guilt because I wanted the people to die in a horribly elaborate plausible way, and see how it was all done.


    Any additional comments?

    As with Mystery Manor, this follows suit. It was entertaining, it kept you coming back for more, but again, I would not listen to it again. I listened to this because I listened to the first book and was entertained. This isn't a book that I NEEDed to listen to like when I listen to the Iron Druid Chronicles, but it was a book that I wanted to listen to because the first book was so good.

    "Impressed"

    I didn't know this was the 3rd book, so now I have to listen to the first two. I love mysteries and this was a good one. It kept me guessing who was the murderer and why these people were being murdered. I'm looking forward to the other books.

    "Not worth it even for FREE"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Only people who are into gratuitous violence will probably like this book. So many people murdered for no reason.


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

    The page after page gore. This was not a mystery, but an excuse for gore.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm surprised I finished it as there was no redeeming value to the creepiness that was this book. Sadly, I read it in December and it has ruined my Christmas mood.
