Good, but at times a little annoying.

An interesting plot with some excellent narration makes for an enjoyable listen, but not with its annoyances. The writer keeps adding delays at key reveal points in an attempt to add suspense, but all it really adds is frustration. The two main characters, a scientist and a test pilot one would assume to be intelligent, yet when they finally reach their “eureka” moment, the average reader would have deduced the same thing three chapters earlier!

Spoilt by sound editor

The sound editor needs to be hit up the side of a head with a fish!
Story was OK. Some of the narrators were great. R.C. Bray was brilliant as usual. However some were badly miscast, Sergeant Adams being the most obvious. All this is unfortunately pales into insignificance compared to the absolutely horrible sound editing. Far too much, far too loud and goes on for far too long at times.
