Publisher's Summary

If you drive past the lights of downtown Roswell, north on Route 285 into the darkness of the New Mexico desert, you'll run across a little radio station with a single tower. This is the home of WKLEN talk-radio, broadcast through Tower #57.

Fresh out of the local community college and eager to start his career in radio production, Luther Stenson arrives for his first shift as an intern on Evening Sands, a late-night radio show focused on the unexplainable and broadcast throughout the lower forty-eight.

Luther’s first night in radio quickly becomes one he’ll never forget, when a mysterious caller known only as "Magnolia" begins to interfere with the station’s broadcast. As the night progresses, Luther and the station crew are pushed to their psychological and emotional limits as they uncover a life-threatening secret and deal with forces beyond their control. The desert is lonely at night...

In the city known for attracting millions to the uncanny, tonight the uncanny is attracted to the only light in the desert... The blinking red crown of Tower 57.

An enjoyable story

I enjoyed listening to this story. I wasn't sure where it was going at the start but I soon got into it. It's worth a listen and...It's free so that makes it even more worthwhile.

Familiar story with a few twists & turns

I love a good conspiracy story. This one was wellell acted and had a story that kept you interested till the end. Would have made a good episode of the X files or Twilight Zone.

Quite gripping

I was quickly hooked and curious about the outcome through the unfolding story lines. There were many twists and turns leading to the gripping climax and unexpected end. Well done Audible team and Mike Charsick.

Interesting ideas, uneven execution.

This mostly played out like a B grade radio drama. However, the third episode- the night in the desert - was like something else entirely- genuinely terrifying in parts. The skinwalker should have played a bigger part throughout, as the next episodes were quite weak by comparison. It was free and, overall, worth listening to.

Excellent story that starts small and ends big

*no spoilers* This story begins like any old life-novel but quickly captures the reader with a supernatural mystery that uses real life events from the 20th century and intertwines them into a compelling story. The mystery keeps one entertained to the end.

Poor

I do not like being forced to submit a review before I have finished the performance as this has done.

Good listen

Good short story ,narration was good with being a full cast makes it that more interesting when your imagination takes over . all in all good book and I think more books should be narrated with a cast although some lone narrators are great at what they do.
