Publisher's Summary

A rainy night. A storm incoming. A group of alcoholics trying to stay clean. But staying clean is impossible when you have blood on your hands. Justice will always catch up with you.

Adam lost his entire life to alcohol, but tonight, he is one year sober. While he never expects to be happy ever again, he is at least back in control of his life. That is, until a ghostly face appears at the window and turns his world into a nightmare.

Now, the only people he can rely on are his fellow drunks, and some of them are keeping secrets.

It was ok

The story was alright. I did enjoy the original revelation of what was going on. I don’t want to say too much because of spoilers but I will say that I wish it hadn’t taken the second turn.

Overall it was well written and I loved Aubrey Parsons narration!

A very well crafted thriller, expertly narrated

You’re only as sick as your secrets.

And we all got ‘em.

This group of alkies seems to have more than most.

It’s time to pay for them.

A very nicely done thriller by Iain Rob Wright. Perfect length, well crafted and expertly narrated by Aubrey Parsons. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this one.

Not the horror I'm used too but still pretty good

Like the headline says, this isn't quite what I expected from Iain Rob Wright but I still enjoyed the storyline. I'm actually not sure what genre this is placed in so my rating doesn't reflect that it isn't the normal horror-type of stories Iain Rob Wright writes. This is more a mystery and thriller read. I was fine with that since I enjoy all those types of genres. I think we get the gist of the story from the blurb and it sticks to that. Find out what or who is messing with them... attacking them... trying to kill them!

Aubrey Parsons is always enjoyable to listen too. I am happy he narrates this genre... his voice is fabulous for the creepy. I'm not sure I could see him on the romance side! He has this deep melodic edge to his voice that really pulls me in. I've listened to several of Aubrey Parsons's audiobooks and honestly I haven't heard one that I didn't enjoy!

A Different Genre For Me

This is a different genre for me and I was a bit hesitant about listening to it but I listened to the sample and thought I'd give it a go. The story is an action/thriller with a touch of horror. I thought the characters were well defined and believable, the story was interesting but I don't want to tell you more about it as I don't like to give spoilers, the book's blurb does give you an idea of what to expect. The story is mostly about Adam, a recovering alcoholic who ended up having to fight for survival after attending an AA meeting. The author has a good descriptive writing style and his words really did paint pictures in my mind. Having no listened to the book I have to admit it's well written but this genre is not for me.

The narration by Aubrey Parsons was extremely well done, the characters were brought to life beautifully or should I say frighteningly? I'll leave you to decide.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.

Good book

The book was good but not a horror book more of a mystery book. So if you are looking for horror I would look for another book but if you want a good mystery book get it.

A Great story I can’t relate to.

This was a well written story. I can tell the author has talent and passion, I am glad I can’t relate to the main character Adam. The content Is very entertaining even so. I would listen to another bender by the author
The narrator Aubrey parsons has a very easy to listen to voice and has the inflection required for an entertaining listen. Absolutely on my radar for future listens with his talent included in the future.

Terrific Story

This was a surprisingly great listen.

I had expected a regular mystery but this was a real who done it.

The characters were well developed and played their parts well.

The narration was impeccable!

Freaky twist and turns galore

This book is freaky as hell with all the twist and turns. I thought I had it figured out and then put of the blue comes another twist. The book is well written with a storyline that will keep you guessing. If you love mystery, intrigue, action and a lot of blood and gore I highly recommend this book. I received this book at my request and I am glad I did. I am voluntarily leaving my honest review here of my own volition. Do not miss this amazing book.

Awesome

12 Steps
By: Iain Rob Wright

This is my first book by this author, but it will defiantly not be the last.

A group of alcoholics are at there support meeting when the storm rolls in. Along with it someones past is about to catch up with them. Who in the group can be

trusted and who can't.

Will anyone live thru the night? The suspense starts at the beginning and goes to the very end. I found I was holding my breath thru a lot of this book, and shivering thru other parts.


The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Aubrey Parsons is great.

Fab book

This started of as a supportive group meeting the 12 steps of the title.
Some characters opening up & baring their souls for the other attendees.
Then all hell let’s loose. Attacked & terrified.
I don’t do spoilers but crikey what a meeting!
Narrator was really good. Is it wrong to feel relaxed by his voice while listening to mayhem? Just me then!

Another excellent book from Iain. Sure it's not long but the voice acting is top notch and the story moves at a great pace!

Highly recommended!

A Meeting Turns To Horror.

A group of alcholics encounter far more than their weekly confessions at a meeting. Based around a tragic accident in the past revenge is delt out in scenes reminiscent of the best horror movies. Through excellent writing and superb narration events are brought fully to life for the listener. This is not for the sqeamish and is a very engaging tale. I thoroughly enjoyed it, with the lights on.

Entertaining AA thriller

Solid fast paced story centred around a group of alcoholics at an AA meeting. Whilst not the best of Iain's work it still has a lot to offer and well worth a read (or listen). Decent narration assists the reader in understanding the characters well. You could pick a few holes in some aspects of the book, please don't and just enjoy the entertainment that the book brings. An enjoyable read.

Therapy can sometimes be murderous

Loved this book, great story and characters, and the twists and turns made me shudder.

The narration is great and adds to the production of the book.

One to listen to again and again.

Outstanding

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Iain Rob Wright is fast becoming the master of stories about redemption, guilt and revenge and Aubrey Parsons is the master of bringing these stories to life. I really enjoyed this book and trying to figure out who was the enemy.

I love the flow of the storyline and the narration. The characters were brilliant and a Mr Parsons brings them to life. His narration is certainly not boring. I enjoyed this book so much, that straight away I brought another book mentioned at the end (which is slightly linked to this book).

If you’re a fan of Iain Rob Wright, there are slight links to other books by him. Enjoy!

Bloody good.

As usual, Iain has written brilliantly, and Aubrey voice portrayed everything spot on.

So many twists and turns, you when you think you have figured it out, you get smacked in the face with something else. Adam is well written as a flawed person, and the alcoholics were well thought out. blinding story line, something so simple, turning into a nightmare.

I requested a copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review, and I had to force my self to turn this off. I highly recommend a listen, especially if you have not read Iains work before. Aubrey is a talented narrator, and has done this book justice. They are a great combination.
