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.

really liked this one .

this was really thrilling. I really enjoyed listening to this . completed it in one day as I couldn't seriously put it down . ending could have included little more detailing in connecting things as it felt a little incomplete but if this is going to be first in series and there will be more to come then still fine 😊

Good story. But very poor performance

one can't understand who is talking and when. No descriptions of the surrounding or no setup of the story. All voice are same.

loved the plot which makes a real edge of the seat thriller but probably sketched the ending by explaining how they got through .

Engaging and Gripping!

The story was short yet engaging. The cast did an amazing job for the characters. Overall the performance was good but some things could have been explained more to give depth and vibe to the story.

A solid Twilight-zone like radio drama

I am absolutely hooked on this, it has a twilight zone like radio drama feel to it with solid voice acting.

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.

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.

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.

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

Meh.

Great idea, decent storytelling, and interesting main characters. The flip-flopping of motivations and attitudes was horrible though. What could possibly have been the Bad Guy's motivation in either foiling the plan, _or_ in tipping off the good guys once they had succeeded? Why are the calm and collected characters suddenly in panic in one scene, and calm and controlled again in the next? Also, most of the sound effects seemed unpolished and subtracted from the experience rather than adding to it.

Quite good but with some cringe

I did like the atmosphere.
Mix between Stranger things and The Vast of Night.
Has a campfire story that could become an entire book.

I did not like the whyning of some characters and many interactions are forced and cringeful.

The main bad guys are underused.

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.
