Title: Desperate Journeys
Author: Russ Towne
Narrator: Henry Marshall
Desperate Journeys by Russ Towne takes listeners on a thrill ride with five gripping stories of suspense where ordinary people face impossibly long odds, conquer fear, and find the strength to survive horrifying circumstances.
“Desperate Journey”: It’s everyone’s worst highway nightmare. A breakdown on the road to the “happiest place on Earth” leads to a night of terror for one teenage boy.
“No Choice at All”: A road trip for an interview with the boss turns into a night of lethal danger and desperate courage when a man stops to give roadside assistance.
“The Blood Oath”: A mother’s secret, a lost identity, and a father’s decision bring peril to a man who learns who he is and what he’s made of in trying to save a young woman.
“The Misunderstanding”: A luggage mix-up focuses a violent criminal’s attention upon a mild-mannered man and his family.
“The Patsy”: A swindler with violent tendencies discovers elderly widows can be dangerous, too.
A solid collection of suspenseful stories. Short but definitely kept my interest with each story.
Narration was fitting for this collection.
