Publisher's Summary

Busted for smoking pot, college-bound suburbanite Danny is incredulous when forced to spend the night in jail. He’s repulsed by his cellmate, a homeless and mentally ill drug addict who keeps him awake all night with his delusional rants. By morning, Danny’s world is completely upended. 

A Night In Jail is a grim pause-resister with a staggering ending. 

Original music by Connor Swan Smith.

An Excellent Short Story About Mental Illness

This was a fantastic novella from start to finish that had a beautiful twist with a powerful message, and the foreshadowing was done well without overdoing it. The story covers 11 hours in a jail cell while it seems like past, present, and future mingle together in this time. The narration is excellently done by Quinton Flynn, well known for his video game and anime voice over roles such as Axel and Raiden. His voice work is very lively and immersive here and really draws you in, and as such, I highly recommend this audiobook for a listen, especially for young adolescents and young adults to understand the issues of mental health and young age drug abuse. Got it memorized?

Compelling and Heartbreaking

As someone who has suffered from both mental illness and substance abuse, this story really hits home for me. The hours flew by as I listened to this tale, as if experiencing it firsthand. The narration is fascinating and stirring at times. It completely brings the characters to life in amazing detail. I was immersed from start to finish.
