This mis-matched duo soon discover, not only do they have a mystery to uncover, but also they’re humanity’s only defence against malign ultra-terrestrials from a different dimension. With interfering locals, obstructive bosses and a fanatical cult getting in the way, and only Cassie’s best friend Amanda (Mandeep Dhillon) as reliable help, Cassie & Glen must figure out why this unique enemy is here and turn it back before it’s too late - for all of us.

in the spirit of The Hitchikers Guide books.

A terrific story, well acted, and funny. a fun cast with tongue firmly in cheek. I very much look forward to any continuing adventures of Cassie and crew. Highly recommended for fans of the genre.

Really fun

This series is so much fun. I usually listen at 1.2+ speed but I’m playing this at 1.0 because I don’t want it to end.

Not Great

This series was just not that good. Commendable performances but it felt childish and was just honestly a bit annoying to listen to.

Average, kind of what you would expect

As the title says kind of average and what you would expect from a story about a “ghost chaser,” unfortunately. But I am always hopeful that it will get better as it progresses. Unfortunately I have sat through too many of such stories that never improve which leaves me a little jaded about what is to come. But I remain hopeful that I will need to eat my words.

Fun to Listen to

I wasn't too sure about this audible, but I have to admit, it places it made me giggle a bit!
I loved how the narrators made this feel exciting and fun to listen to. If there was another book, as good as this, I would definitely listen to it.
This was the right length of time and didn't 'drag' on in any way. It helped me relax more and a good break away from other books/audibles, that are more of an intense read.
Very refreshing, it's worth listening to.

Great story and performance!

I really loved this. I listened to one episode after the other, stopping only when my wife and children were screaming for my attention. I really hope the same people make something else soon.

I enjoyed it very much

This was definitely on a par with several Radio 4 series, and I enjoyed it so much I hope there's going to be a second series. Amusing and engaging, with characters I could relate to. Very well-performed.

Good fun

I was surprised to enjoy this as much as I did. Good fun, and plenty of much needed silliness. Can we have a sequel please?

Thoroughly enjoyable, gets better and better!!!

This is really well done, very enjoyable, it moves along really quickly so it's not dull at any point, interesting story that made me laugh.
The way it’s been put together is excellent.
I'd have been very happy to pay for this.

I absolutely loved it, so so good, listened to the whole thing in one day, I know I've said it already but it is very well done, the script, the voices, everything, can't fault it at all.
