Publisher's Summary

A voyage of the Damned.

The annual blessing of the fishing fleet is more than a ceremony, it provides God's protection from the demons of the sea. But Captain John Boston has no time for God and holy sanctions. The church has betrayed him, with the local priest refusing to protect his sister from a violent husband, and Boston's wife is seriously ill.

The trawler hasn't had much luck this season and people are whispering that God has indeed turned his gaze from John Boston too, because he didn't accept the priest's traditional blessing. Now the boat is sailing one last time to try and fill its holds with fish. There's more than a mysterious fog, bad weather, and empty nets waiting for them.

The devil has a boat of his own and he's out on the cold ocean, trawling for dead men and their souls.

Ghosts at Sea!

Volume 4 is just as entertaining as those before it. It follows the usual formula: an individual being haunted by a spirit for their own reasons.

There are plenty of "creepy" moments as you'd expect aboard a ship in the middle of the water in the dead of night. I did like the twist toward the end. It actually had me go back and re-listen to bits to make sure I got it right. I felt for the captain throughout it all, so kudos to GM Hague for making that happen.

Overall, a solid listen with excellent narration from the author.

G.M. Hague - Always Fun!

I appreciate the work of G.M. Hague so much. There is something to be said for short form horror that cuts right to the core of the issue - no dilly dallying with silly romance stories or useless exposition/background. This story follows a group of men who risk it all by aiming to catch as many fish as they can in waters not often traveled. They come across a lone, unmanned boat that they soon find will haunt their course at sea. I won't say more for fear of spoilers but I will say that I loved this short tale from top to bottom. It is narrated by the author, who has a fairly thick Australian accent, which I found amusing and didn't think it detracted from the story.

Creepy, Fun and Adventurous.

The Devil's Net by G. M. Hague was a well written ghost story about the horrors of disrespecting the sea. The characters were fleshed out rather well for being a short story. The mythology was developed enough to understand the dangers. The author/narrator did a fine job. This was somewhat like an extended Twilight Zone / Tales From The Darkside episode. Very Enjoyable.

There's evil on the high seas!

Bizarre accidents, mysterious deaths, and a mysterious abandoned ship await these fisherman of the high seas in this short but entertaining story. The story was more mystery than horror.

In my opinion, The Devils Net, is worth your listening time if you enjoy this kind of tale.

The perfect storm for the devil

A traditional tale of the ocean, the fishermen and the king of the sea, with some serious twists. A season unblessed, a season of poor catches and empty holds leads to one last desperate trip before the seasons end. A trip ill fated and filled with peril, death and more. Get ready for a well written and well narrated tale. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

The Devil's Net

This was a fun book. I knew it would be a bad time on the sea for the characters, I knew it was a ghost story, I knew what to expect in a way. Still enjoyed it immensely. I thought it was written and performed well by the author. Still don't want to be on open water. I will take my fishing from the safety of the shore, thank you very much.

This book was given to me for free at my request for my voluntary and unbiased review.

Good read

The Devil's Net by G.M. Hague was a good read. Captain John Boston has been betrayed by the church. His boat hasn't had much luck and now he's on the water one last time trying to get some fish.

Supernatural at Sea

I enjoyed listening to this short (wish was longer) story, it was spooky and held my interest. Caption Bishop should have taken the time go get the blessing. It contains ghosts and adventure. Author does well with short horror stories. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank You!

Great haunted ship story

I like having the author narrate their own stories. This one starts out with his explanation of how this isn't the story of George Clooney on a boat. Which it isn't. Also heard that he has his own studio to record his narration, A little upset I didn't hear frogs or birds in the background.

Nonetheless, the story is great. Haven't heard or watched a good haunted ship story in a while and this one hit the mark. Story is fairly simple but great for a short story. A storm isn't what is coming after these seamen. As always I wish G.M. Hague would make the story longer. Always want to hear more.

G.M. Hague does a great job narrating. Given that he is an Australian author they all take place in Australia. He voices the story perfectly and since this is short I have listened to it a few times. None of his horror stories have to be read in order and I hope you enjoy this author and his stories as much as I do.
