ArtGeekMom ,

LOVE THIS!

If you enjoy classic and contemporary noir detective fiction, you will NOT be disappointed. It’s important to state that this is season based audio book readings, by a single narrator, broken into chapter episodes. That being said, the stories themselves are fantastic and immersive contemporary noir detective fiction. This is not family friendly. I would recommend that a potential trigger warning be mentioned in the episode summaries. As a person that pays attention to trigger warnings I find them very helpful. I strongly recommend this podcast.
