Enjoyed it!

I'm an avid mystery/thriller fan amd enjoyed this plot, characters, and narrator. It was difficult to clearly hear him at times, Nicholas Camm, and I had to turn the volume up or rewind in parts. However, personally I like this narrator. He makes the whole thing sound omnious,. spooky, and foreboding where it fits the story.
