- An Australian Paramedic’s Summer on the Edge
- By: Benjamin Gilmour
- Narrated by: Matty Morris
- Length: 5 hrs and 48 mins
The Gap is a vivid portrait of the lead-up to Christmas; an unflinching, no-holds-barred look at what happens after the triple-zero call is made - the drugs, nightclubs, brothels, drunk rich kids, billionaires, domestic disputes, the elderly, emergency births, even a kidnapping. Patients share their innermost feelings, and we witness their loneliness, their despair and their hopes.

The book was heart breaking to read with ups and downs throughout with it simultaneously being funny and excoriatingly revealing. It was gripping and I was hooked immediately, my eyes were opened to the harsh realities of a paramedic and the significant emotional trauma the job has on a person.
