Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A blood-soaked island is the eerie setting for a series of gruesome murders. Maggie Holmes, semi-retired forensic pathologist and investigator of the paranormal, has long been denied access to Knight Island, the scene of two violent murder sprees 20 years apart. When she learns it will be the setting for the reality show Chicken Out, she signs up without the knowledge or consent of her friend Vivian Storm, a police sketch artist and lesbian psychic bartender with a foul mouth and a roving eye. Vivian's not eager to pass herself and Maggie off as a couple, but she gives in for a chance to split the million-dollar prize. The group also includes two cooks, island owner Franklin Knight, a buff blond couple, a bouncer and his well-endowed girlfriend and a pair of New Agers draped in crystals, each of them to be captured by motion-activated cameras placed all over the island. The hopefuls have hardly settled into the decrepit hotel when one of the cooks is murdered and the boats scuttled, marooning the contestants with a brutal killer. Maggie's forensic skills and Vivian's ability to see what the victims saw as they faced death are stretched to the limit as an ever more sadistic killer sends the body count skyward in this grisly debut. A down-market takeoff on And Then There Were None. Not for the faint of heart.

    Entertaining crime caper

    Paranormal forensic pathologist Maggie Holmes, has tried unsuccessfully twice to gain access to Knight Island, where two violent serial murders occurred two decades apart. She gave up any hope of ever getting there until she finds out that the reality show Chicken Out will stage an event there. Maggie maneuvers her way onto the show with her partner being her friend lesbian police sketch artist Vivian Storm, a psychic bartender, who reluctantly agreed after the fact when she learns they will split a million dollars when they win.------------ Other teams vie with the two females for the prize, but almost immediately upon debarking one member of a duo of cooks is murdered and the boats to leave Knight Island destroyed. A killer is on the loose with more homicides. Maggie applies her forensic skills along with Vivian's sketches of what the victims¿ last saw before dying in an attempt to stop a brutal serial killer from adding them to the list.-------------------- This gruesome Agatha Christie¿s And Then There Were None Survivor thriller hooks the audience from start to finish seeing whether Holmes and Storm are left standing as elimination from this reality show is by death. The story line is graphic especially when Vivian sees what the dead saw not sure how she lives with these nightmarish final pictures. Although too gory at times (unless you have the stomach of Vivian), the BAD LANDS is a tense thriller tale as Holmes investigates with Vivian as her able assistant.----------- Harriet Klausner
