Wrongly convicted of the brutal murder of his wife, Danny Manning is exiled to Death Island, the site of America’s favorite reality TV show. Death Island is Hell disguised as Paradise, a place where no one gets off alive unless the audience vote goes his way. Danny’s day-to-day survival depends on a brilliant and hilarious psychopath who knows the ropes. But his ultimate fate lies in the hands of a clergyman’s quirky wife, a smarmy TV host, and Death Island’s fickle home viewers. If voted “off the island,” he will be free, innocent or not. Can he stay alive that long? And will he ever discover the identity of the real murderer?
