This was a lovely listen, if such a word can be used to describe underpinnings that are quite gruesome, but never dwelled on excessively. The narrator has an engaging voice with subtle yet consistent changes for different characters, and her accent made the listen that much more enjoyable.

Very Entertaining

I really enjoyed this well written suspense. It's easy to symphathize with the characters' predictament and the story kept my interest right to the end. Would love more like this one.
