    Medicine Creek, Kansas, has been slowly dying for the last century. In a town where nothing changes, the community is terrified after a series of grisly murders takes place. Even more alarming, the bodies are displayed in bizarre tableaus. With the entire town in shock, FBI Agent Pendergast arrives from New Orleans to investigate. From the fields to the local caves, Pendergast discovers the remnants of a Prohibition-era moonshine operation and the truth behind one of the town's greatest mysteries.

    Venice says: "So Exciting! Like watching a film!"
    "A win for the Narrator and the Authors"
    Overall

    Pendergast is the perfect hero. I have listened to all the books available on Audible by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, all are great. But this story and presentation was probably the best of all. This story is brought to life expertly and with passion by Rene Auberjonois. This man can lend the personality and inflection required to make a story something you want to listen to. The use of music in this particular Audio Book in the series is very important in the impact of the story and well done. Shed a tear at the end or not, a well told story and another great audiobook.

    Over four hours of strange and chilling tales of horror, science fiction, fantasy, and the surreal, including the classics Master of the Crabs by Clark Ashton Smith and Black God's Kiss by C.L. Moore. A unique blend of short stories for fans of all audio genres!

    Overall

    The stories were at best disjointed. The voice performances were at best average. I am a long term listener of voice dramas and this one misses the mark. The stories would build you and then lose all sense and go somewhere else. I measure voice dramas against the standard set by the BBC with Pet Cemetary or even the Hitchhikers Guide. They are/ was the pinacle which all should work towards. Enthusiastic readings with substandard content don't cut it.

    I don't see them here, but the Deathlands series is well done, even though it is one person covering all the characters.
