While the show is on air, he calls people from the phonebook at random. If they pick up the phone with a certain slogan, a hostage is set free.

If you could sum up Amok in three words, what would they be?

Like a movie

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

The all star cast of narrators was the reason I bought this, along with the fact Fitzek had previously published 'The Child', aother incredible audio drama that I thought could never be surpassed.

Any additional comments?

Listening to this really is like watching a movie play out in your head. I instantly took to the main character;Samim, I am a sucker for the leading lady/man who has a dark and unfortunate past that has lead them to the point of despair and suicide, but they keep hanging on to do some good for the world.In short, this was a great listen. The narration was superb and I challenge anyone to say they didn't enjoy it. Fittzek has done it again with another great storyline and audible have done it again bringing it to life: a magnificent duo.
