Why you should not sleep with your sister.
I felt this was a very creepy story. It was an child abduction story with a few twists. This could have easily been extended into a full length novel. I kind of wish it was. It is not so much scary as creepy. Without giving anything away I like the use of appliances in this.
The narrator did read fairly rapidly and I am not sure it was suppose to be or not. I gave him five stars, but would like to hear it again with the suspense more drawn out.

An Original Horror Tale
"Johnny Junk" starts like many supernatural horror stories. A phone call from someone who was believed to be gone from this world. But that's close to where familiarity will end for the reader.
In a small town where children have been disappearing, most of the parents have given up. Jim had too. Until he received a phone call from his daughter. A phone call that had a caller ID. A phone call from the residence of a local hermit nicknamed Johnny Junk. Soon a vigilante group of grieving and angry parents are on Johnny Junk's property. That's the start of an ever-building pile of secrets, traps, and strange that is this story.
The story pulls you in and gets you interested. Some of the characters are laid out in a no-nonsense list partway through, but this is a short novelette. Brian Knight wants to tell his story and keep his audience moving as fast as he can write.
The narrator does a great job of keeping this story moving at the ultra-speed it is meant to be read.
I recommend reading this or listening to it -- whichever with you feel more comfortable -- in one sitting.
The ending was mixed for me but still original. I love the duality of the title that will become apparent to the reader after they are done enjoying this tale.
