Great characters' interpretation

Max receives an old piece of jewelry from his deceased mother, and this allows him to see the last moments of a person by touching an object.

I enjoyed this original short story. The two characters are well depicted, and the dialogs are fluid. The twist at the end was especially disturbing.

I am not really into stories about angels, but I think this one was well written. I just wish it had been longer and more developed.

Michael Sanguinetti’s narration was quite good. Checking Audible, I see this is his second audiobook, but he has improved immensely since his first. The audio quality, although, not perfect, is very good, and the character’s interpretations are very well done. I am impressed, and I am looking forward to future books narrated by Sanguinetti.

I received a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.
