Publisher's Summary

Waking naked and alone on a deserted island, Rob Stone has no recollection of how he got there, or who he is. His memory is one of snapshots, each one building a picture of what he does and who he truly is. He discovers he has both the skills and will to survive. But survival is one thing, being hunted is another.

A beautiful journalist in desperate need of help. The dark web, the dumping ground for the evil of the Internet. An enemy from his past. Murder, abduction and betrayal. Stone must try to remember the time before the island changed everything. The island will help him remember. The island will make him wish he could forget.

When the unthinkable becomes reality….

Unlistenable!

Unquestionably a benchmark example of how NOT to narrate a book.
No fluency.
Varying voice intonation relating to the text is non-existent. Constant monotonic urgency is not interesting to listen to.
Should come with a potential 'Danger to Mental Health' warning.

Dreadful narration

The narration is so bad that it completely detracts from the story, and whole Audible experience. Couldn’t finish it.

Do not buy the narration!!

It's absolutely the worst narration I've ever heard. He speaks so fast that even at 85% he's still rattling away. He seemingly has no idea how to modify his tone of voice to adapt to anything - everything sounds like he pronounces it with capital letters! On top of this, he regularly mispronounces words, and it appears to have been recorded on a "my first microphone", it's offputtingly tinny. Unlistenable.
