Great Short Story

For me 3 hours is not a book it's a short story. Pembrey starts off with a great concept for a book and I totally enjoyed it. I am not familiar with this narrator either but I was impressed by his presentation of the material. The only thing wrong with this story is that it just was not developed into a total novel. The ending was very abrupt, which was disappointing but I will still give what was there 4 stars! So if you need something to do for a 3 hour flight or layover this would be an excellent choice. I would like to see this author pick this book back up and really develope it.

look forward to more from this author on Audible

Simon Vance is in top form.
Engaging suspense

but.... but it stopped with a 'then I woke up' ending.

more experimental than a 'short story' story to my thinking. OK it added to the character, and not the story

Now we know Daniel Pembrey can write, "bring it on" and do have Simon as narrator please.
