Could not stop listening. Great story, it stands alone but I'd love to hear more. It is the perfect blend of classic King horror and the newer King mystery/detective style.

Great narration. Well worth it.

Thoughtful concept with fantastic storytelling

A dystopian future where death is no longer natural and human life is essentially eternal, creates a system where death is the most political subject on the planet. The story deals with what humanity can be lost when everything is systematically 'perfect'. It has adventure, mystery, depth of character, intriguing relationships and I'm looking forward to the whole series now.

I struggled a bit with the narration as the narrator voiced all characters as though every word they said was pivotal apart from that, but the story was good, very visual with lots of intrigue.

I loved this Australian mystery/drama, great narration and a beautifully written story.

Every Australian has stopped in a version of this town and wondered what goes on behind closed doors and this story pulls so many punches you start to wonder if it could, in fact, be a true tale or wonder if it is the Ramsey Street of the outback with warring neighbours, lonely & complex locals, nosey visitors, suspicious deaths & the occasional motorcycle.

You can vividly see the scrubland, smell the fire & feel the heat & dirt of the drought. Well worth the listen.

Although a slow burn it is a beautiful journey. You can see, smell & touch everything in this narrative. Wonderful narration.

Concept akin to TV series Heros but no superpowers

Apart from the similarity, the story stood alone and I'm looking forward to the next book. Fast paced with great character development.

I love it when a great story and a great narrator come together. Beautiful prose and constant flow of action make this a memorable story which I can't wait to continue and the narrators way with characters and accents makes you feel like you 'know' wash character. Absolutely recommend.

Always Entertaining

Really well rounded out end to the trilogy. The Narrator is wonderful and consistent. There is not a King book that passes that doesn't leave you with a new way of looking at things and this one is no exception.
