Publisher's Summary

I am going to die here. My name is Mindy Mason; I’m a student from the University. I volunteered for one experiment; it was to be for one day only. I want to go home now. I hear cries, screams, and shrieks in the night. Some of the voices sound as if they are coming from the pillow under my head, others as if from a radio behind a door in a far room, and yet others come from my dreams, thus layering my terror. I know Wendy has a knife; perhaps she has killed again. How can I stop her?

Mind Blowing! 4.5 Chilling & Thrilling Stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

You better watch what you are volunteering for. This is one bizarre psychological thriller, it is well written and well told and grabs your attention right from the start. Just when you think you have a clue you soon learn that you don’t. Dana Fox masterfully takes you into what seems like a mad house and a mad person’s mind, she takes you for a ride, a terrifyingly haunted ride. And then gives an ending that will blow your mind. This is an amazing short story, moves you to the edge of your seat and has your heart racing. Well done Dana Fox, very well done! Thank you for this great read.

I listened to the Audible edition, Susan Marlowe does a wonderful job narrating the story, setting the perfect tone. She performs the voices for all the characters, bring them to life from the pages to your ears.

Perfect Chiller

So I love psychological works and horror works. Never having read a Dona Fox piece before, I wasn’t sure what to expect but when I realized this piece has both psychological twists AND horror, I was hooked!

What starts out as a seemingly normal day for Mindy turns into a twisted nightmare full of experiments, murderous doctors, and a government conspiracy. Just when you think you know what’s going to happen next, you’re given a brand new twist. After this, I’m definitely going to check out more by this author.

Oh, and also, the audiobook had excellent narration, and it added to the chilling nature of the story.

Perfect recipe for horror

Mix together an underfunded psychiatric hospital, a secret government project, and a hulking, sadist nurse. Add in an author who is a master of mood and description. Top off with a narrator capable of conveying a sense of mystery, terror and confusion. You get a perfect horror story.

Even the twist had a twist!

It drove me crazy that I couldn’t figure out what was going on! Dona Fox is the master of short horror thrillers. I never feel like anything was missing despite the short story. This one really had me going. Poor Mindy is having a really bad day and can’t nor could I figure out who the killer was. Great listen that will take you back to One flew over the Cuckoos nest. Narrator did a great job bring the story life and keep the thriller feeling thick in the room

Twists within twists

Just about the time I “know” I have it figured out, I “know” how it will end, Dona Fox does her twist within a twist and then I “know” NOTHING. A fun listen, actually got the goosebumps standing up on my arms. Susan Marlowe delivers professionally.

Exciting, stressing, prefect!

Before the read, I wondered how can someone deliver a horror story in an hour, I was not disappointed, it keeps you at the edge of your seat and when you think you figured it out... plot twist!
Magnificently delivered, I enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you.

Freaky psychological horror!

Another great story by DF. As always, creepy atmosphere, nicely crafted, and a pretty freaky idea. A little Cuckoo's Nest, a little Face Off, a lotta creepy. I really liked the narrator too!

Quick horror

If you like stories that keep you guessing then this might be the one for you. A quick horror filled with tension. I did find some of it confusing as I was never sure who was speaking, but it did come to a reasonable conclusion.

I felt the narrator did a good job too.

Creepy!

So, so good!!
Dona keeps you confused and guessing all the way through which I think helps really draws you in to the story and makes you feel almost on edge and part of the story!
Susan reads this really well with great voices and perfect pacing! There’s really nothing to dislike; I’d have happily listened to a feature length version!!
A great pairing of writer and narrator and looking forward to future collaborations!!
This is my honest opinion of a free review copy.

Well Crafted Short Story.

A great premise for a disturbing modern horror story. The writing maintains the tension, aided by excellent narration, with several plot twists to keep the listener guessing to the end. Very enjoyable.
