Dan Gold's deep growl of a voice accentuates the dark plot of this audiobook with its cast of disturbed and desperate characters. Remote Bliss is the story of Josie Henry's violent imprisonment in her own home, which triggers flashback to her similarly difficult past. The measures our protagonist is willing to take to free herself from her captors are truly desperate, and Gold's cinematic narration will thrill brave-hearted listeners.
Josiel Henry finally found solace from a violent past when she retired to a quiet isolated cottage in the country. Her seclusion is shattered when four bank robbers choose her home as a hideout in their escape from the law. Held prisoner in her own home, Josiel's thoughts are flooded with the past, along with the realization that escape is imperative. As her captors debate the merits of murdering their witness, Josiel schemes to break free but soon finds the risk of running away is greater than she could have imagined. Outnumbered and forced to fight for her life, she learns just how far she will go to save herself. A gripping story that provokes a primal fear, Remote Bliss explores the instinct for self preservation.

I like things different. Challenging, unconventional, thought-provoking. Everything is on a spectrum, which makes life interesting.
Quiet high. This is an enjoyable story, though much is given away in the summary.
Don't want to spoil the tale for listeners.
Good pace, clear narration. Characters depicted well.
The elderly lady has a few convenient advantages to make this plot work. Physical fitness, firearms training and personal history. A convenient situation presents as a conclusion.
