    "Brilliant new author!"

    Can't wait to find a full length novel by this new author. Great writing and tantalising story line. Very well read too.

    I read/listen a LOT, I will try all genre's but I don't necessarily love all genre's. I believe reading expands the mind and imagination.

    "Odd little book"

    Strange little story, feels like there should've been much more to it and I found the reading of it distracting, the different accents etc

    "Good job it was free."

    Very weak and very short story. Not really worth bothering with.
    Narrator did a reasonable job but she was working with poor material.

    Obsessed with psychological thrillers, crime, mystery and dystopian fictions. A good drama now and again. A harsh critic at times.

    "Good short story but slightly pointless?"

    I have to admit I was totally gripped throughout but it fizzled away when it just seemed like listening to a short episode of Midsummer Murder - slightly inconclusive and may have been better as an actual novel.

    "It was free"

    Narrator has a good Geordie accent but the story was weak. Can't complain too much as it was free.

    "Good story shame about the bad language."

    Good story but a shame about the swearing. A tale about brothers, envy, girls and police work.

    "Good Little Short Story"

    An easy listen and kept me hooked. Listened to it while working out at the gym and it did what I wanted it to do. The story reminded me or a true event that happened not so long ago, until it got to a certain part. Nice little short story.

    Story
    "*Death by Bullying*"

    Ryan was barely 18 yr. old. He was good looking, popular, and likeable, yet he chose to end his own life. Why? This is the story of the dark undercurrents that run deep in our society, where the domineering seek to control, and destroy others for the feelings of power it weilds. This was a good read, but left me feeling as if the book ended in the middle of a chapter.

    "A short story with a stellar ending!"

    The characters buildup was very good for a short one hour story line. I would have personally preferred a longer version but all the same this book address teen life at school about bullying.

    "Not so gripping or chilling."

    according to the description the story is a gripping chilling Thriller. I did not find it gripping or chilling or a thriller. The performance was fantastic comma the story just did not keep my attention. I have no problems listening to two other books in between the short 11 chapter story.

    "Upsetting"

    This book was just unsettling and seemed basic and undeveloped. I kept waiting for a twist but there was none, it was just a basic story about upsetting events, would not recommend.

    "Well Written with Perfect Narration"

    This book contains a lot for only being an hour long. It begins with Ryan James sitting in an abandoned car park with a hose flooding carbon monoxide through his passenger window. He's questioning whether he should end it all, and communicating with someone through texts. The next morning, Erica Martin is assigned as the lead detective on the case, and there are more and more questions as she investigates what she originally thought was a suicide.

    This novella was beautifully written. Each scene was described so well I could picture the smoke wreathing Sally's face and the blue lights flashing in the trees. Unfortunately we only have time for a thin veneer of depth into each character and their motivations. This seemed like the first introduction to a full length novel featuring Erica Martin. There were references to things like her lack of a relationship and descriptions of her recurring nightmares that felt like they'd be more fleshed out later.

    I really loved the narrator's accent, and her speaking voices were done so well. She had great range, it sounded like there was a full cast of characters speaking seamlessly. I'll be watching for more by both the narrator and author.

    "It's like getting only the first 2 chapters of a book"

    I thoroughly enjoyed the performance and the story appeared to be the beginning of a great detective novel and then it's just over. Only a beginning. No middle. No end.
