Great book!

Very good book and well narrated. Some of the stories were very creepy and good to listen to on my early winter morning walks to the station

Consistently excellent.

I have yet to hear anything less than fantastic (in every sense of the word) from Tony Walker. I’m not an easy reviewer, Mr Walker is just that good. Written well and performed well, spine-tingling, thought provoking and a deep understanding of the genre. I am anxiously awaiting novel length works to hear how he does with extended character development.
