Publisher's Summary

It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime.

Delighted by a surprise invitation, Miriam Macy sails off to a luxurious private island off the coast of Mexico, with six strangers - an ex-cop, a chef, a financial advisor, a nurse, a lawyer, and a young widow. 

Surrounded by miles of open water in the gloriously green Sea of Cortez, Miriam is shocked to discover that she and the rest of her companions have been brought to the remote island under false pretenses - and all seven strangers harbor a secret. 

Danger lurks in the lush forest and in the halls and bedrooms of the lonely mansion. Sporadic cell-phone coverage and miles of ocean keeps the group trapped in paradise. And strange accidents keep them suspicious of each other, as one by one...they all fall down

For fans of thrilling contemporary suspense like The Woman in Cabin 10, Rachel Howzell Hall's brilliant stand-alone novel modernizes and pays homage to Agatha's Christie's And Then There Were None, bringing a diverse cast of seven sinners to a private island for a reckoning that will leave you breathless.

Unfortunately, extremely boring

Perhaps readers who are not familiar with Agatha Christie might find this book enjoyable. I can not fault the writer's style. The narration was fine, but it seemed like a ripoff rather than a homage to a classic story. The author mixes diversity and current events, but it was not enough to brighten a tired formula. Once again, if you are not familiar with the original you could very well like the book.

Bad people doing bad things

I enjoyed the narrative told by main character Miriam. Even though she is flawed and has an unlikeable quality, I liked her for the majority of the story. Many reviews I saw before reading this book mentioned this is a retelling of Agatha Christie's "And Then There Were None" which I adore so I had high hopes. This book never brought on the suspense expected and was pretty much a story about bad people doing bad things so can only give it three stars.

Worst Narrator EVER

I've never heard my dog howl in response to an audiobook. This narrator needs to be banned from Audible. Indescribably awful; "accents/twangs" god awful. Literally sounded like a wounded animal which genuinely upset my dog. There are no words for how bad this was/is...

Boring. I couldn’t finish!

I listened to the first 1/3 of the book. It was so boring. I have never returned an Audible book before until this one. The story was going NOWHERE! This is supposed to be a thriller!

The narration was fantastic. I loved having a POC as main character and her voice was well written. She had a lot of sass and made me laugh. But as I said, it was so boring. The pace was simply off.

Great reader, not very interesting story

I lost interest in the story. I certainly didn't feel anything for the main character.

A Farcical Story with Awful, Unlikable Characters

I didn't like this story. My biggest complaint is the awful, unlikable one note characters. It's a classic case of "I don't care about these people or what happens to them." here for me. Even the characters who I guess were supposed to be seen in some kind of sympathetic light, such as the culprit behind everything and the victim of the main character, didn't come off all that sympathetic. The motives behind everything is also weak as hell too. I guess that's what I can call my impression of this story, a weak, VERY weak attempt at the Agatha Christie "And Then There Were None" formula that failed.

The only thing I did like was the narrator. She did a good job giving the character a voice, even if I found the character detestable.

I really did not enjoy reading this story.

I really did not enjoy reading this story, and this was my first thriller from this author. The narrator was hard to understand because she did not fully pronounce her words and kept mixing up names of the characters. Overall, I thought the ending was satisfying. I just didn't agree with the one identified as the criminal mastermind.

Story Drags

the story line drags. the narrator gets annoying and being in her head is very annoying and it’s hard to follow the characters and who they are since the story rushes through intros and we are too in the narrators head and thoughts

Caution: this book contains STRONG language!

I was just getting into this story, a little past chapter 3, when all of a sudden, F bombs all over, in several different sections. Not cool. Why is it so hard to find a good audiobook without swearing? The description doesn’t warn you about it (at least, that I found) and I rely on other reviewers to warn me. I’ll be exchanging this one.

Eh

The performance was great! I could picture the story as it was told. The story was not that great, at least not to me.
