An absolute gem
Having stumbled upon this by sheer chance, I was captivated from the very first line. The narrator delivers excellence, the author spins an intricate tale with the character’s backgrounds skilfully woven within the credible plot. Once beginning to listen, it was near to impossible to stop, the narrator drawing me deeper into the story with an outstanding performance. Reliance by Paul McMurrough is an absolute gem leaving the listener to wonder what indeed would result if the story ever came to reality. Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars.
