The Unsettling Series (2021 & 2023)

Four stand-alone supernatural Audible Original Stories.

THE INTRUDER Narrated by: David Harbour

The fear inside meets the terror out there in a story of unsettling suspense.

Evan Hart lives the good life, enjoying his job, his sports club, the occasional date—and especially his comfortable home, nestled in the thick woods surrounding his property. But that tranquility is shattered when he realizes a figure from his past has arrived in town, armed with a knife, his intentions clear from the man’s attempts to break into Evan’s house in the middle of the night. The authorities can do nothing.

Evan can only turn to the nightmares that plague his sleeping hours for answers. But the question is: can those dreams save him, or are they part of the intruder’s plan?

STAY TUNED Narrated by: Zoë Chao

A tale of a bucolic getaway and an unsettling spirit.

Amanda and Charlie are spending their first weekend away in months. They’ve rented a luxurious vacation house on Lost Valley Lake. Swimming, bicycling and romance are the order of the day, and all is good. That is, until someone—or something—appears on the shore across the lake, just as the sky turns gray and the water chill and choppy.

When the apparition, or whatever it might be, grows closer and closer, it soon becomes clear that there are certain types of evil that you can’t protect yourself from with locked doors and windows.

And perhaps you can’t protect yourself from them at all.

DATE NIGHT – Narrated by: David Harbour

A race against time becomes a battle for the soul.

Death is a topic Bradford Douglas is intimately familiar with. The young attorney is on a crusade against capital punishment. He’s saved a number of death row inmates, but none of his cases has been as tough as the one he now faces: Henry Combs, a vicious serial killer, has only hours to live when Douglas is summoned for a Hail Mary attempt to have the man’s sentence commuted to life imprisonment.

As Douglas races to pursue whatever strategies he can think of, he finds his passion for justice giving way to something altogether different.

An obsession.

THE MUSE – Narrated by: Dan Bittner

The inspiration for evil may hold the key to murder.

Life appears to imitate art when a series of sadistic murders grips the city. Investigating the carefully orchestrated killings, Detective Gene Tripp and his partner discover that the perp might have been inspired by the bestselling novels and stories of popular thriller author Brody Pierce. Or has the demon of writer’s block driven Brody himself to step over the line between fiction and reality and exploit the dark side of his imagination?

As the detectives race to uncover the truth before more people die, they learn that perhaps yet another boundary has been crossed:

That between real life and the supernatural.
