The MissingThe Missing by Kiersten Modglin
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Plot. Five tourists, strangers, are lured from a south-Florida resort area to enjoy an island cruise. Soon, they are dropped off on a deserted island and are told that only the last of them to survive may leave. No food, water, cell signals, shelter, only the clothes on their backs. They are victims of an elaborate scam, a game of survival and death.

Liked. It’s a page-turner. Narration, pace, voices, production are all okay. No explicit language or sex.

Not so hot. A bit over the top with one character in particular. Nobody is that immature and obnoxious to strangers. Seems the author has watched a ton of the “survival” genrè on TV.

Written by Kiersten Modglin, narrated by Nicol Zanzarella, 8.5 hours of listening in unabridged audiobook format, released in October 2021 by Tantor Audio.

Not great literature; not intended to be but, entertaining.
