    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Well written and well narrated short story!"

    The Setup story is superb. I have two of Pamela Samuels Young's full length novels in my Audible library that I look forward to reading. RC Bray's narration is excellent as always. I continue to think of him as a SciFi narrator, but he does mysteries very, very well.

    "Great!"

    A fun and well written short story with a great twist, I definitely didn't see it coming. Very impressive. Listen to this narration, it's good.

    "Seems incomplete"
    What made the experience of listening to The Setup the most enjoyable?

    The narration and concept was nice, I was getting wrapped in, then... nothing....


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have completed it... I mean the story was developing but was suddenly over. And, all that was left were questions. I understand that this is a short story but I've heard jokes that have better character development and an ending better than this...
