Publisher's Summary

A lost child.

A marriage shattered beyond repair?

John Baxter doesn't think so, which is why he has planned this weekend getaway with his wife. He expected a lot of shouting, a lot of tears, but in the end, he hoped to have a stronger foundation upon which they could start rebuilding what they had once had.

What he wasn't expecting was the home invasion...and the hell that awaited them beneath the rented cabin.

A whole lot packed in just under 2 hours

This one ended up just ok for me. The story was flat in places as was the narration.

Great voice, mediocre editing, meh story

Okay, so the story is framed in a little bit interesting way that makes it slightly better than just a slasher, but really no big surprises. The plausibility of it is unbelievable, and really there is nothing to the story beyond just torture/violence.

Nathaniel Scott's voice is phenomenal. I could listen to it all day. Unfortunately the editing did him disservice by cutting pauses that were needed. At times it sounded like the end of a sentence immediately went into the next chapter without a breath. Sometimes a pause is needed, and shouldn't be cut in editing.

Overall, I won't listen to this ever again. I hope Mr. Scott gets a chance to read other books so I can judge him with perhaps a better editor.

monotone

The story wasn't great on it's own and the narrator was my least favorite ever.
