Title: Listen to Me Now
Author: A.I. Nasser, Scare Street
Narrator: Jake Urry
After the success of his first novel, John Krik has struggled to come up with a follow-up that his fans would eagerly gobble up. On a spur of the moment decision, John leaves his suburban married life to spend six months in an abandoned house in the quiet eerie town of Cafeville, where secrets lurk in every corner. The towns’ biggest source of gossip is the Greens who live right next door.
As John attempts to put his finger on what it is about the house that has everyone steering clear, he finds himself captivated by the seductively charming Eva Green, who is as dangerous as she is irresistible. A gruesome story begins to take form in his mind.
As the lines between fiction and reality become blurred, something sinister emerges from the shadows and demands to be heard.
Writing is a struggle. John Krik finds that out firsthand. Going to his second home with the hopes of writing with no distractions, John Krik is in for a ride. His other home has secrets, and he’ll be forced to learn them firsthand.
The beginning of the book is a bit slow, but the ending more than makes up for it. With vivid characters and plenty of suspense, this is a fantastic little chiller.
I’ve listened to several of Jake Urry’s other projects and always found that he has a way of enrapturing the darker theme and tones. Perfect choice for this piece.
