Not worth your time
I listened to the whole story and it so wasn't worth it. The beginning song was the only good thing.
Sad to see it end
This was a great storyline. Hopefully someday it turns into an ongoing podcast series because the potential is limitless. I have loved every title from the author so keep up the great work Mur. And crap that song gets stuck in my head.
I almost peed my pants
I have to say I became a fan of Mur Lafferty after this book my second favorite is playing for keeps. You not feeling good today like zombies? then listen to this one i promise you wont regret it.
