Reviews

Bernie

- The Escape Club

A very good story, well narrated but the recording quality is not as good as it could be, a fair bit of distortion.

Gripping aund understated. Excellently done and well worth the time.

Shannon

- Fantastic!

Read well and one of the best most engaging stories I've listened to yet!
