Here are four psychological thrillers where love and shame collide, creating a warped kind of sexual chemistry. Abduction, paranoia, addiction, and obsession thicken the mix.

Couldn't resist this for the 1 credit. Really enjoyed the thrillers and the narration was great. My favourites were the Shuttered Room and A Hard Lesson although the pacing slowed a little here and there in the others, but felt this was to build tension. Some unpleasant characters and twists I didn't see coming.

Evan Gabriel wasn't always a feared and respected North American Federation Navy Commander. Before dangerous missions to the ice-bound planet of Poliahu, the deadly jungle world of Eden, and politically corrupt Mars, he was a simple recruit, fighting to make his mark in the elite Naval Special Forces…and was part of a top-secret military experiment that would change his life forever. Zero Point tells the tale of a young man faced with difficult choices and dangerous trials.

A little predictable, but may try the main thing

An OK short story, but the narration was a little distracting for the breathy strained parts. The sci-fi aspect was enjoyable, but knew what was going to happen. Otherwise, I may try the main novel.

"Why do you want to be a boat builder?" "Because," said Morwenna, "I like the way the boats grow." Morwenna and Corwin are eight years old, wind-swept and salty-haired twins growing up on the Devon coast. In the soft autumn light they play as their grandfather, Matthew, watches the boats come in. But it is a day unlike any other.

A simple tale that tackles how different characters react to a death. The story took a while to get going, but the narration kept me listening. Rather quaint, but not show-stopping.

Peter watched his new family drive away, certain it was the last time he'd ever see them. But sometimes plans go awry in the best way. Now, the plan is to get back to them. But sometimes plans go awry in the worst way. Sometimes the only plan is to believe it will be all right, even when it's almost impossible to believe.

One of the best freebies I have come across. Was never confused as to who was speaking (a peeve of mine), narrator did a good job there. The story kept me going and the pace was just right.Zombie-related stories like these are in no short supply, but the execution made up for parts that were slightly predictable. May check more out by this author.
