Was held in suspense for the first nine chapters. Sadly, the final chapter felt rushed and we were left with very little insight or explanation into the whys of the murder. Left me let down.
The performances were fabulous, but I couldn’t really warm up to the protagonist. Don’t think I’ll be back for the next in the series.
Killer by Nature is fairly short but this high quality cast pack in a very enjoyable story which is well paced and gives the main characters some depth despite the brevity. It is dramatically souped up with some background music and lots of special effects. The effects overall were very well done though at times they almost seemed like padding rather than value add. I'm erring on the side of them providing a real-time feel to it rather than padding but I'm sure opinions will vary.
The story itself is largely fairly standard UK domestic thriller fayre but it does delve well into the nature vs nurture debate in all of its strands. It has decent twists and turns and I thought the main characters came across as well drawn and individual brought to life with quality voice acting and of course those sound effects.
In all I'm very happy that I got good value for my credit. I enjoy the occasional audio drama to supplement my staple diet of audiobooks and this one cuts the mustard.

Kept my attention all the way through - the performance of the cast, pace of story and the overall production are excellent. Though there were a few parts I was a bit unsure of; more ‘would that really happen’, than being confused by it.
Overall ‘Killer by Nature’ is a good - but not spectacular - solid psychological thriller. [Split into 10 episodes, each ranging between 24-32 minutes in length.]
I’m glad Audible appear to be increasingly devoting more and more time + energy producing their own audio-dramas, such as this release, and hope they continue to do so. For me this makes it easier to justify being a member.
